A pprobe detected a mysterious signal that physics can’t explain

http://flip.it/DHemoA

The spaceprobe entered the orbit in December 2015. It wss launched from the Jiuquan (酒泉) Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert (戈壁沙漠), about 820 miles northwest of Xi’an (西安). 

DAMPE stands for Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) while WIMPs are known as weakly interacting massive particles. The DAMPE spaceprobe was specifically designed to look for the indirect decay signal of the dark matter, the so-called WIMPs.

I don’t know that China is into this kind of research in astrophysics, the kind of research which doesn’t yield any immediate benefits, if ever, except advacing knowledge in space, time, and possibly the meaning of life and why we are here in this world.

This project will go on for 5 years.

I’ll let you in on a little secret: my son used to work for Bridgewater and that’s how I knew who Dalio was. Several years back, we were at Bridgewater’s Connecticut HQ picking up our son from work. 

Bridgewater’s HQ was located at a very seclusive site. There was no sign on a narrow and winding country road to indicate where the HQ was. You had to know where to turn or you’d miss the small road leading to the front entrance of the building. We parked our car at the parking lot about 100 feet from the entrance. We couldn’t see the entire building because it was hidden behind lots of huge trees. We also saw several security guards who were dressed in black along with a few black SUVs in front of the building. My son told me that they were used to transport workers to local hotels or bus stations when they missed their buses to NYC because they had to stay behind to finish work for the day.

Don’t forget the Great Attractor.

Terrifying indeed. But, you don’t need to lose sleep over it.

Trump will keep you up in the night anyway.

Interesting read. Terrifying but not bad enough to keep you up in the night worrying about what our world is becoming to. 

Trump is doing a good job on that all the time.

The Big Bang – or the Big Bounce? April 30, 2017

The Big Bang – or the Big Bounce? – https://www.ft.com/content/f47b8310-0383-11e7-ace0-1ce02ef0def9 via @FT

Whether it is big bang or big bounce, this is by far the best and easiest-to-understand article about “Big Bang,” written by Sean Carrol for people with no knowledge of how space and time work in the universe that we are in now. It’s an easy and enjoyable read.

I am sure you have questions like: 
。What’s before the “big bang?” 

。Did the “big bang” bring with it the beginning of time?

。Was there no time before the “big bang?”

The scientists have no answers for us common folks just yet. They might in a decade or a century. 

But who is counting? After all, the universe has existed for 13.8 billion years, give or take a few millions. 

It can wait.

相片確實清晰無比。陸家嘴,濱江大道和外灘很清楚,應該是在東方明珠上面照的。這種技術在商業和軍事上的用途想必非常的多。也不知道大陸還在研究什麼只此一家,別無分號的先進科技。

One step at a time. One research at a time.

The name of this particular research technique is a mouthful:

CRISPR stands for “Clustered Regularly-Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats.”

Did you get that?

Will future babies live to their 100s? I guess it is too late for you and I.
