We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and by the depth of our answers. Physics Can a Black hole suck in sound, much like it can with light? Can a Black hole suck in sound, much like it can with light?
Introduction Have you ever been helping in the kitchen and found yourself with a recipe that calls for egg whites? Do you use the eggshell to separate the egg yolk from the egg white? Instead of using the shell to separate them, you can use science!
Sucking in helium from balloons is always a fun party trick. Helium, unlike other gases, is super light which causes it to have a cool effect on vocal cords. When inhaled, it passes over the vocal cords at a much more rapid rate.
The office romances, the flirting at the photocopier, the disciplinary action after the Christmas party… For a place so fraught with love and lust the office is quite a dull place to look at - corporate sponsored mugs, tastefully chosen comedy calendar and passive aggressive notes about borrowing other peoples stationery all add up to ruin the romance of a day at work. The only hint to its secret is the subtle heart shaped centre point. Who says romance can't be understated. You even end up with heart shaped confetti at the end!
It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! What's up with my mouth?
It's not as easy as Star Trek makes it look "Star Trek" makes faster-than-light travel look easy, but according to new calculations by Italian physicists, a warp drive could easily create a black hole that would incinerate any passengers on a space craft and then suck Earth into a black hole. This paper "makes it much harder to realize, if not almost impossible, warp drives. In normal physics, nothing can move faster than the speed of light.
This copy is for your personal non-commercial use only. History was made on Wednesday when scientists from around the world unveiled the first photo of what it means to be a Leafs fan. Oh, sure. Instead, I saw a ring of fire surrounding a puck that is about to slip through the legs of Frederik Andersen in OT.
Astronomers have long had their eye on a group of stars that precariously circles just outside the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy. The event, recorded in incredible detail, reveals how the extreme gravitational pull of a black hole affects light. Einstein suspected that a black hole might be powerful enough to lower the frequency of light under extreme circumstances, and once again his theory has withstood the test.
