Quotes

"We present observations, going just about as faint as you can go, to show there is in fact nothing at the location of these transients – so the question becomes, how did they get there?" he ponders...
...Last year, a friend of mine told me that she was expecting the 2013 version of the "supermoon" to look "radically brighter, "Like with those 3-way light bulbs; I thought it was going to be like turning the moonlight up a notch."
...Nevertheless, he says "There is a deep seated conceptual tension between general relativity and quantum mechanics...If, in fact, Franson is right, that is a huge, huge step in my opinion: it's the tip of the iceberg element that quantum mechanics is correct and that general relativity must be wrong."
"Biosynthesis of Value-Added Product Using the Breakdown of Seafood Waste by R Eutropha"
