Black Holes = Dark Energy Stars?

Theoretical physicists have recently been frustrated by a bold hypothesis concerning black holes—specifically, that they don’t exist.

In March, at the 22nd Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting in Santa Barbara, Calif., George Chapline, an applied physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, gave a talk based on ideas he’s been incubating for several years. (…)

His work reinvents black holes as so-called “dark energy stars,” which are what is left over when matter transitions to dark energy as it passes a point of no return similar to a black hole’s event horizon. That redefinition, if correct, would invalidate much of the intellectual framework of traditional black holes.

Biomedical Image Awards 2006



Clockwise: stinging nettle leaf, stem cell, rhinoceros horn, cluster of nerve cells.

Selected by a team of expert judges from recent acquisitions by the Medical Photographic Library of the Wellcome Library, the winning images show a wide variety of subjects, most invisible to the naked eye, revealing new layers of complexity.

9rules Redesign

Check out the new digs at 9rules, sporting a fresh, simplified design by Mike Rundle and a new feature called Notes which opens discussion to everyone.

I head up the 9rules art community. Stop by and click/read/say things.

Periodic Table of the Keys

Being a Modest Proposal as to a Tabular Arrangement of the Key Board employing a Natural Classification.

Left to right, top to bottom: The Functionals, The Numericals, The Alphabeticals, The Modals, The Editorials I, The Editorials II, and The Punctuationals. Of course there’s still more to be discovered.

Somewhat related: varieties of Periodic Tables, my favorites are (of course) the Longman & Stewart models.
