If I hear that phrase one more time I swear I will explode :-)

Research is a necessity though, my friend:)

Yes I know that Julie :-) But it just seems to me that there are far to many PhD students publishing final thesis's, and Professors who HAVE to produce X learned papers a year to keep their standing and jobs, who all seem to be clutching at the flimsiest evidence as an excuse to put pen to paper. But of course the biggest part of the problem is also the irresponsible press who are always looking for an attention grabbing headline.

New research suggests that black holes, formed from the first stars in our universe, heated the gas throughout space later than previously thought.


@ Chris ;))

Interesting though:


Black holes also imprinted a clear signature in radio waves which astronomers can now search for. The study is a major new finding about the origins of the universe.

Black holes at the beginning of the Big Bang should have emitted very long wavelength gravitational waves, which are the target of the LISA mission, should it be financed and launched.

Yes, I do too, it is my daughter's name. It had to consist of three spacecrafts shooting laser beams at each other from millions of kilometers and measuring the time of arrival of the laser pulses. Now there is only a prototype called eLISA (e stands for Europe) which should perform a proof of concept test in 2015. NASA is not supporting it, and ESA has classified it as second choice after an X-ray telescope mission.

eLISA=> First ever mission to survey the entire universe directly with gravitational waves, to tell us about the formation of structure and galaxies, stellar evolution, the early universe, and the structure and nature of spacetime itself. Most importantly, there will be enormous potential for discovering the parts of the universe that are invisible by other means, such as black holes, the Big Bang, and other, as yet unknown objects.
