so april fools is coming up right? just telling you that:

  • SCREAMERS ARE NOT OKAY
  • CONFESSING LOVE AS A JOKE IS ALSO NOT OK
  • DATING SOMEONE AS A JOKE IS DEFINITELY NOT OK
  • DO NOT HURT ANYONES FEELINGS AS A JOKE
  • DO NOT BE THOSE KIND OF DOUCHEBAGS
  • RICKROLLS ARE OKAY
  • A LOT OF RICKROLLS ARE VERY VERY OKAY
  • "PRANKING" MINIMUM/LOW-WAGE WORKERS IN A WAY THAT MAKES THEIR JOB HARDER OR FORCES THEM TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOU IS ABSOLUTELY NOT OKAY

Have physicists finally detected gravitational waves? Breaking News - Updates to Come

thescienceofreality:

By Mika McKinnon, images via io9 Space,

The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has news so big it announced that it would announce something. The press conference will stream live tomorrow at noon, but cosmologists everywhere are gossiping about what that news could be. The leading theory: Scientists have detected gravitational waves, in what would be a landmark discovery for the field of physics.

Gravitational waves are the last chunk of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity that was predicted but not yet observed. If gravitational waves have been observed, it most likely was done by the Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (Bicep) telescope at the south pole. It stared at the cosmic microwave background radiation from 2003 to 2008, but it takes a long time to process and analyze the data when looking for a faint signal in a lot of noise.

The Bicep mission page describes anticipated gravitational waves as faint, polarized, and distorted by gravitational lensing of objects between us and the cosmic microwave background radiation. They released a video of their observations in 2008. The colour scale adjusts throughout the movie to highlight temperature fluctuations of both the cosmic microwave background radiation, and the galactic plane:

 

Why look at the cosmic microwave background radiation for signs of gravitational waves? Because an infinitesimal moment after the universe started — 10-34 seconds after the big bang — we think it went through an inflationary period. If it did, that inflation could have amplified gravitational waves to such an extent that we can actually detect them. This would not only fill in that last missing chunk of things predicted by General Relativity that we haven’t seen yet, but also offer a glimpse into the primeval universe. They won’t be insta-proof that inflationary theory is correct, but they would rule out some cyclic theories for the origin of the universe.

Some pre-announcement articles are already mixing up very common gravity waves with gravitational waves. To differentiate, I’ll pass things off to an exasperated Dr. Katherine Mack:

 

Gravity waves are common phenomena in both the ocean and the sky, as seen in this MODIS image. Read more about them at the Earth Observatory.

As for the press conference, I’m already bracing for disappointment. “Breaking news! We’ll have breaking news for you on Monday!” announcements produce so much hype that the actual discovery probably won’t live up to expectations. I’m not the only one feeling that way — the Guardian ran an entire piece interviewing cautiously excited cosmologists warning that the observations would need to be highly robust if they’re going to be momentous.

#64, You’re a strange one. When I think of you, I can only imagine you smiling, and before I know it, I have fucking dumb ass smile too. I don’t know what say, because honestly our relationship has been pretty natural. We’ve never delved into any deep shit, which is okay. we’re friends because we enjoy each other’s company, and that’s how it should be.

The more I discover, I more things I find in common. Also, It very difficult to compare you to anyone. Half the time, I’m not even sure what you’re talking about. You’re like a dangly moving acid trip.

If I had an ominous voice to narrate my life, I’d pick you. Because, well, It wouldn’t make a lick of sense. Oh, I can’t wait till we’re in our 70s and telling our life stories. Because I know you won’t sound much different.

I still can’t imagine anyone saying something sweeter about me.
