Quotes

"It's just a hobby I have been into for a few years" he said
...Hakeem Oluseyi, an astrophysicist at the Florida Institute of Technology, on April 2 about what makes this wacky show both fun and educational. "People upload videos on YouTube[1] and..."
Most of the videos are real, but Oluseyi can tell if they have been doctored. "If something violates the laws of physics, then clearly, it's not real" he said
"The new, better quality data indicates that there is a great diversity among the tidal disruption candidates. This is contrary to our perception, based on earlier epochs of observation, that they are a relatively uniform class of events. We are yet to understand what causes these differences in observational appearance and computer simulations are guaranteed to be an important part of this journey."
