  1. I'm an amiture astronomer who lives in New Zealand (southern hemisphere). Between about 10pm and 1:30am nzdt, on the evening of the 5th of January 2021, I was Star gazing with a friend who had never done it before. I was setting up my telescope to look at the seven sisters when my mate tells me with much excitement that he can see a star brightening dramatically. I look up and couldn't see what he was talking about so go back to setting up the telescope again. As I finish setting it up about a minute later to look up and see a particularly bright star(brighter than Sirius) start to drama
  2. .. so I picked math, because it is about math. Hi all! I bring here to all of you some, so far unknown, results of the 20 yrs research on geography, astronomy, history (...) embeded in geometry. Few tips: - there is a mathematical relation between geography, geomorphology, astronomy, distribution of urban and sacral infrastructure, myths, historical events, anatomy... - there is a simple geometrical procedure (within 15 steps) of constructing geometrical matrix that resembles relative positions of 9 brightest stars (Alcyone, Electra, Caleano, Taygeta, Sterope, Maya, Merope, Pleione
  3. Space is alone confusing. Calculating physics in a 5 dimensional simulation requires 5 variables per dimension. That's 25 different variables. Now imagine, those variables multiplying per every instance of time since the Big Bang to whatever future our race may hold. Lot to take in at once so we use rounding (calculating approximate results). As of now, we haven't yet discovered the smallest instance of time. Second? Micro-Second? Nano-Second? To first understand the smallest thing, you must understand how we can get to it. Detailed explanation of why rounding is necessary and why we will al
  4. I am currently looking to participate in a competition much like Science Bowl, but for college students. The reason for the emphasis is because I have searched the web and found several college LEVEL comps for high schoolers. I have participated in Science Bowl and even won regionals back in 2013, but have found nothing for college students that was similar. I am looking for something with a few of the following: Team sport Preferably buzzers as opposed to an exam A good prize (none of this "bragging rights" stuff) I.e. Money, a trophy, a vacation etc Must have content relating to more than
  5. Where do black holes come from?..do it really happens?
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbsGYRArH_w http://arxiv.org/abs/1505.03117 Anyone around here have some insights on this subject? I find the idea of energy symmetry quite interesting.
