Re: higher levels in nature question

you have to keep in mind that speed is traveled distance divided by time. In your scenario you forget that not only the distance seen by the different particles is different but also the perception a of time of the different particles is different likestated in Einsteins special theory of relativit...

Re: higher levels in nature question

So if you're a fast particle heading toward another fast particle, and despite you and the other particle traveling near the speed of light from a third persons perspective, it's like they're both only going just under half the speed of light in their relativistic world. So, why doesn't the fast par...

higher levels in nature question

I was just wondering, how is it possible for particles from the sun to hit nearly stationary particles in the atmosphere at higher energies than when two particles going near the speed of light in opposite directions hit? It seams counter-intuitive to me, cause the combined speed of the two particle...

Re: The Computer Science Thread

I'm still new to computer science, but games, AI, and robots are what interest me.

My ears have already fallen off from listening to Bob regale me with hours and hours of C# and it's trusty companion, Visual Express. The funeral was last night. The new pair should be here anytime.

Re: Can black holes grow?

Based on what I heard at a lecture a year or two ago, though the object falling into the black hole experiences less time than someone who's watching from a safe distance does, it has no effect on it's velocity, or on how long it takes to reach the singularity. It's kinda like what happened in the r...

I don't mind, as long as they aren't the ones that pop up in the middle of the screen. I just got one on another forum, and it was over the button I wanted to click.

Re: Hmmm.......

It reminds me of orange cream soda :)

Yeah, you could be right. Maybe a large vacuum filled container, with something that could detect the radiation given off by the black hole as it passes through. It would be a quantum needle in a haystack.

Re: Hmmm.......

My search wasn't very productive. I still am interested in if cosmic rays produce micro black holes ? They should right ? We should be able to detect them ? If we can detect them, and we dont see them, does that imply that LHC will never be able to produce them ? Kinda hard to detect something that ...

Re: Hmmm.......

But what I found interesting in that story is that a black hole was kinda more like a particle and could pass through matter. That was kinda interesting. I am NOT a physicist and I had not considered a black hole as being as tiny as a particle. It was interesting. From what I understand (I'm not a ...

They lost me at "ds2 = e−|y|/` gμ dxμ dx + dy2" . :? I found the conclusions part of the paper you linked to also interesting (especially for those who are worried about the project destroying the world) "Tables IV and V then show that, for black holes trapped inside the Earth, after a time comparab...
