DailyDirt: Measuring Important Stuff...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Measuring natural phenomena isn't always easy. There are a lot of interesting things that can be measured without a lot of fancy equipment, but some things can't be measured without just the right conditions and materials. Here are a few links on measuring some cool (or actually kinda hot...) things. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Re: "Speed Of Gravity" -- wow.

    As it says in the post, the number is based on a binary pulsar system.

    Think of gravity as a wave. The wave travels the same speed, no matter what. The amplitude, however, changes based on mass.
