Went to a great party over the weekend where I got to talk to a woman studying the differences between black holes in galactic centers and ones created from collapsing stars, a guy who is helping to build the world’s most advanced radio telescope (that takes in enough raw information every day to fill every hard disk on every computer in the world…) Oh, and then there was the guy who talked about “chemtrails,” how TV writers are stupid and lazy, and how Apple flipped a switch when the iPhone 4 came out to make his older phone stop working. Fortunately, that last guy has mostly left my brain already, as learning about giant radio telescope design and determining the mass of a black hole took up pretty much every free neuron I had that night.
