Variable Speed of Light
    #2369998 - 02/23/04 12:03 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Was at the bookstore doing some chem and got totally sidetracked by a book on this subject. Written a professor of theoretical physics at the Imperial University in England, not some shmuck. He talks about how many of the questions about physics and the universe can be answered if his theory taht the speed of light in a vaccuum is not always constant is true.

If I wasnt so fucked up right now, I'd give a bit more information. At any rate, heres a review. very cool stuff...

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

isnt that because of dark energy? i didnt read teh article so im nto sure why or what he thinks it is. sounds like hype to me prob talks about catch words like "big bang" and writen for teh common reader not physicists. i dunno. prob should check it out. new shit is always cool to read.

peace

Yet another mention of the Superconducting Super Collider :smile:

Looks like a good book, thanks for mentioning it.

If congress hadn't cancelled funding 1/2 way through the construction...we would be seeing some interesting physics coming out of the SSC :frown:

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Indeed. The SSC to me is more than just a political/scientific episode. It's a missing piece--a symbol of what we could have known if we had only been willing to ask.

Until they fire up the large hadron collider, anyway.

So I took the name.

LHC will hopefully see an observation of the Higgs. At 14 TeV beams for protons and 1140 TeV for Pb, surely we will see some wonderful new physics ... that is until the energy density of the collisions becomes so high that mini black holes are formed and all information within the event horizon is lost. That is the limit to high energy physics, we will then need to investigate other systems for hidden symmetries. Interesting time to be alive and a scientist. =D
