DailyDirt: Always More To Discover...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The universe is just incredibly vast and full of stuff we're only scratching the surface of detecting. Every so often, though, there are some folks who think we've learned it all -- or that there's not much more left to figure out. But there's always more. The pace of technology might not advance fast enough for us to be able to continue to discover new things at the rate we've been doing so, but the "peak science" event probably hasn't happened yet (or may not happen at all). If you've been thinking about learning how to code, take a look at our Daily Deals for a collection of online courses to help you program and/or master some professional skills.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Gravity Waves!

    The detection of gravity waves are about to be announced. Science FTW.

    Isn't it convenient that physicists are recently finding more particles?
    Indeed it is. Too convenient. It's a false flag set up by the National Science Foundation. Three letter acronym? Yep. Starts with 'NS'? Yep. 'A' & 'F' are somewhat similar looking letters? Yes, a bit. Notice waveforms collapsing when they should be in an indeterminate state? Yes. No way waveforms collapse like that on their own. Inside job!

    Seems like a solid body of evidence to me. What more could anyone possibly want?

    I'm quite confident that 'Betteridge's Law' applies to the 2nd story.

    I know that "past performance is never an indication of the future".

    Even though, as has happened every time that someone has said that we can stop as all physics has been discovered, I'm quite confident that some new idea will emerge that will revolutionize physics.
