Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, discovery, gravity waves, interesting, LIGO, news, science, space, universe )

- 101 days ago -
Scientists detected gravitational waves--tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time generated by two massive black holes crashing together in a space-warping cataclysm. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Why Is The Night Sky Black?
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, space, universe, sky, Doppler Effect, Hubble, universe )

- 168 days ago -
It sounds obvious. That's what night is. The sun has set and when you look up at the sky, it's black. Except where there's a star, of course. The stars are bright and shiny.
