Someplace Special – March 13th

Southampton, England

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.” – Dr. Stephen Hawking

(People like me can understand how light diffracts through rain drops suspended in the air and can do the math to describe it. Well, I could at one point long ago. Stephen Hawking could understand how black holes warp the fabric of spacetime enough to radiate away energy and eventually evaporate – and do the math to prove it RIP, Dr. Hawking.)

(Read this thread to find out more about Hawking radiation in easy to understand terms.)
