Oh my word that damn cat again!

The possibility that the cat is dead or alive is equal at 50/50. It could be in either state until you open the container and find out, one way or the other.

In the meantime the cat cannot be physically alive and dead at the same time. although it may be in a transitional state of dying.

All mumbo jumbo.


I always heard cats have nine lives, tough one.. :D

If I wanted to get an amateur home telescope and I live in city of about a million people, would it be worth it?


You would have to consider the great amount of light pollution in a city with this population range before making a big investment on a telescope. I would recommend a Celestron, expensive but well worth its money.

Good afternoon Gordon and Wingdi.

It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response.


Would the above be considered as a slip of tongue?

Sometimes the wackiest outside the box things hit the nail on the head.


You could be right about that.

I found another interesting article on the matter, mentioning the JWST.

I wouldn't take too much notice of ifl if I were you!

ifl


Oh, I posted it because I saw the JWST and Seth Shostak mentioned in the article. Can't wait for 2018!

At 1,400 light years away we have no means to contact them in a practical time scale, now or in the foreseeable future. Even if they had some sophisticated means to contact us at hundreds of times light speed, what good would that be to us? At present we are like kids looking through a sweet shop window with no pocket money. The only practical solution for contact would be for them to visit us in FTL spaceships, but how likely is that to happen?


I don't think FTL is possible. The math is too solid on this. The amount of energy to bring even a small amount of mass to light speed is huge. What may be possible is finding some way to fold space. The hot topic now is a 2D holographic universe that we perceive as 3D. This type of fabric may lend itself to go from point a to point B without actually moving in a straight line.

It is all way above my wage grade but I still find it fascinating even if I am unable to comprehend most of it.

Math is the only branch of science that is to be fully understood on a universal scale, therefore it is our best tool for finding ET and unraveling other scientific mysteries such as quantum entanglement. The only thing we humans need are more and bigger brains and money.

Where is it?

http://www.iflscience.com/say-hello-earth-20-historic-kepler-discovery-suggests-we-are-not-alone

Actually finding life on these planets is more difficult. Although upcoming telescopes like the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be designed to study the atmospheres of exoplanets and search for signs of habitability, the range for doing this will be just tens of light-years from Earth, said Shostak. Kepler 452b, at 1,400 light-years away, is too far to be comprehensively studied at the moment.

I believe there is too much imagination in concepts such as tachyons. Physicists should remember what Isaac Newton said: "Hypotheses non fingo".

Remember, imagination is the basis of good ideas, Tullio.

In terms of ET yes, in terms of posters, sometimes .....


Are you questioning the abilities of the Mod Team Chris? ;)
