5 Lost Documents That Shatter Your Image of Famous People

Started by Steph S.. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Jan 5. 1 Reply

When we think of famous figures, we have a tendency to boil them down to their most defining traits. In our heads, Teddy Roosevelt becomes badass distilled, and Albert Einstein is a brain with a severe comb allergy. This is all by design -- famous…Continue

Interesting clock Edward.  However, being the nit-picker I am, it seems to me the number at the 9s place is really 9.00477796077..........

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks. Makes more sense if it can be either particle. All the examples I was reading were showing the positive particle left behind. Maybe was just convenient, or I was reading it wrong. Either way , I thank you very much. I appreciate it. Peace and long life.

The virtual particle pairs are a matter particle and an antimatter particle. Whichever is randomly closer to the event horizon gets swallowed and the other one becomes a real particle which escapes.

Hey science nerds out there. I enjoy reading about quantam mechanics, even though I understand maybe 1% of 1% of what I read. It makes my brain melt and leak out my ears. Anyway, maybe one of you guys can explain Hawking radiation to me. As I understand, when a virtual pair of particles are created near a black hole, before annihilation can take place, one falls into the black hole, while the other remains. True? And the one left is the positive particle, therefore wouldn't that cause a net positive sum value to the universe? Wouldn't that cancel out dark energy to some extent?  I'm really having a hard time understanding this, and my brain is melting faster than usual. Thanks for any input. Peace.

Yes, I'm a Red-Green MtG player. I have never been told to get a life, though people have asked to join my "Yu-gi-oh" game. >.>
