Admiral Graf von Spee, Montevideo? I saw the movie.

On July 16 SpaceX will launch its Dragon spacecraft to the ISS, full of scientific instrumentation. Read the NASA web page.

Thanks. It is a nice theory, but has no experimental evidence. The new 750 GeV bump does not fit into it.

Another crash landing on a barge, with one of three rocket motors failing, after putting two communication satellites in high orbit. This consumes much of the fuel, and the landing part of the mission is more risky. But Elon Musk is glad, because he got paid for orbiting the satellites.

Strong southern Scirocco wind. 41 C in Sicily, with brush fires and Canadair planes not able to take off because of the wind.

No, I don't think so. I never heard a theorist claiming so. They would be happy to have an experimental confirmation of SUSY.

According to Einstein gravitational waves travel at the speed of light in a vacuum.

A second event was registered on December 26 2015 and it was announced at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society in San Diego. I am waiting for further information after a press release of the Italian Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare which manages the Italian/French VIRGO interferometer in Cascina, near Pisa.

The two black holes which merged at a distance of 1.4 billion light years had masses of 14 and 8 solar masses, while the merged black hole has a mass of 21 Sun masses. The rest has gone in gravitational waves.
Being smaller than the two first observed black holes, the signal lasted for about one second instead of the 2/10th of a second of the first observation.

Nice to see that physics does not discover only something that was predicted a hundred years ago like gravitational waves or 50 years ago like the Higgs boson.
We are charting new territory and, like Columbus,we may make an unforeseen discovery.

Maybe the NASA Near Earth Objects program should know this. It is managed by JPL.

More likely the Chinese with their 500 meters FAST radiotelescope, which looks like a bigger Arecibo.

A very short list, all in 35 s. This means they all can compete in the Tour. Fabio Aru should be there, don't know about Nibali.

Arecibo is what in Carso (Karst) highland is called a dolina. It cannot be dismantled. Also the China FAST is in a dolina.

My standard dinner is spaghetti with salsa bolognese, but my provider of frozen foods tempts me with fish based dishes, plus an excellent German beer. I have just finished my Dolcetto wine, which is not a sweet wine.

It's disgusting. I won't report on this because it's no longer a sport. The French authorities were afraid of terrorists, now they have to cope with hordes of drunk soccer fans. In Italy the sale of alcoholics is forbidden near and inside stadiums of soccer matches.

The one in the middle is Gigi Buffon, Italian goalie from Juventus, at his fourth European championship.
