For the love of science!
I’ve been really going easy on the “science” part of “Science. Music. Philosophy. Hats” thing up there recently.* This has been because I’ve been neglecting the Science feed in my bookmarks. So I thought I’d try and rectify that today.
… Ye gods, guys! While I’ve been away, suddenly loads of cool stuff has happened. So here’s a brief rundown, for the hell of it:
- At number 3 we have a clue as to the source of gamma rays: hints include “black holes” and “not gamma ray bursts as previously thought”. For anyone who ever used to watch the Fantastic Four kids show, this is relevant to your interests. Also, naming your telescopes after rapper-cum-actors is a bad plan.
- At number 2, they have finally invented a sonic screwdriver. I know, I know, I was totally sold by the attention grabbing headline, but I don’t really care. All I know is that now that the hard part’s done, we have no excuse not to get back to inventing time travel.
- And finally, SYNTHETIC DNA! That is all.
* In all honesty though I’ve yet to say anything about hats EVER.
