Ugh. My mouse has been malfunctioning lately. Sometimes when I left click, it clicks a second time nearly instantly. As it happens, multiposts on this board happen when the submit button is pressed more than once.

Too much LoL. Time to get a new mouse. :P

Seriously, and the quantum wave function thing is kind of cool, I guess...though I wanna pet the kitty, not just take a peek at it. D:

So Alpha Centauri has a planet. I advocate we call it Chiron.

So how about that CERN data that keeps showing two Higgs Bosons?

I can't beat that, but I'm surprised no one posted about organic compounds PROBABLY discovered on both Mercury AND Mars. ;D

Damn, I didn't even hear about that. That's pretty rad. Just as rad as MIT discovering a new state of matter and a new kind of magnetism.

Apparently absolute zero isn't a thing anymore.

And my favourite bit comes at the end: this stuff acts like dark energy.

Hey...I guess that means we can divide by AZ now without destroying the universe! right?

I like the whole, "opposite" effect; it's ALMOST cool enough to go into science.

And now, from the near universe, Kepler data suggesting a boatload of nearby, Earth-like planets: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/0 ... 32324.html

This might not be as cool as a Higgs or some of the other things but...

Check this for a rad awesome analogy of the Higgs Boson and the Higgs Field.

I've never seen it explained so simply and beautifully. Great find, my friend. D:

This is old but: http://www.space.com/22949-mars-water-d ... rover.html

Still relevant ;D
