Re: So how’s everyone holding up because of the Coronavirus

... risks are low for younger people ... A small update on the actual numbers: 32 of the +9000 that died where younger than 45 years old. It goes to show that an 'event' can have far different and more disastrous outcomes depending on the setting. In nature there are about a thousand Cosmic-ray col...

Re: So how’s everyone holding up because of the Coronavirus

Germany's fundamental ability to test has been overstated, usually by politicians looking for an excuse as to why Germany is doing better. It probably has more to do with the country being led by a woman with a scientific background. ... our health minister is a woman and she had our whole safety s...

Re: So how’s everyone holding up because of the Coronavirus

The scientist I referred to at the end, wasn't a scientist from the 'incrowd' the minister followed a scientist with a political background. That's why I wrote second last paragraph 'top' scientists. I think you put your finger on the problem here. Politicians like to pick scientists who say the so...

Re: So how’s everyone holding up because of the Coronavirus

Interesting that on the one hand you say the problem is that politicians have been slavishly listening to scientists and then end up giving an example of scientists not being listened to by politicians. The scientist I referred to at the end, wasn't a scientist from the 'incrowd' the minister follo...

Re: So how’s everyone holding up because of the Coronavirus

Doing good. We’re getting step by step out of our lockdown. As we are here on a ‘science’ forum, this crisis has clearly shown how little knowledge and bad advice scientific experts can give when in comes to security! Early on it was already clear that the virus was airborn but the WHO kept claiming...

Re: ChERNobyl

And your simulator will be able to stop this from happening? My simulator will make all particle research obsolete, because it will show how matter originates out of nothing. :mrgreen: If you don't mind I'd like you to keep me updated on your work when you can? It seems over the next 18 months it's...

Re: ChERNobyl

In layman terms: Think of a candle that can light up the room. The hazard with a candle is that it can set a room on fire when you tip it over … but its heat is not able to burn and destroy the smallest elements on Earth: Electrons and Protons. Now the LHC is also a kind of candle, just a very tiny ...

Re: ChERNobyl

Howdy Charms, Sad to hear that you’ve had a rough time family-wise. What I’m up to is still trying to build a simulator that is a kind of TOE, and prove that the LHC is some dangerous monkey business. It’s a simple idea but quite complex to program, but maybe just maybe I’ll get it to work next year...

Re: ChERNobyl

Hi Charms! Yup yup, I’m still around, almost my 10 year anniversary! The series is okay, it’s is a bit cliché and simplistic at times but it has some cool moments. I binge watched it and enjoyed it. Memorable. : ) Haha, no flat Earth for me, I can’t believe those people really exist. I’m guessing th...

Howdy, Anyone else seen the tv series Chernobyl? :scared-shocked: https://youtu.be/s9APLXM9Ei8 A great example how business and personal ambition overrules commonsense.

Hi,

Anyone else wondering why they’re not showing a broader image of this ‘new’ black hole?
