Intergalactic travel is possible according to Einstein

Scientist discover that intergalactic travel is possible according to Einstein. The special theory of relativity suggests that given an unlimited amount of fuel intergalactic travel is possible.

Although an unlimited amount of fuel is not available, theoretically, according to the laws of physics, accelerating at such a rate that 1G astronauts throughout the journey could visit other galaxies.

The drawback is that by the time they returned Earth would be gone or all life on Earth would be extinct. This is because as their speed accelerates according to them, time dilates according to the people on Earth. Thus 76 years would seem like thousands of years on Earth.

So as time travel is indeed possible, it just has some small drawbacks to Earth dwellers.

Our Little Ball

Sitting here on our little ball, a tiny speck around we go. Orbiting the sun is falling to, missing it and around we sail.

Still we sit, never gone far. Looking out at all the stars. Figured much about all that’s there. Smart peeps we seem to be.

We look to see if there are others. Haven’t found anything but still we hope. Not a fossil of a microbe has been found. Is that’s all there is? We really hope not.

New York Times Predicts Trump a Two-Term President

An article in the New York Times predicts that President Donald J. Trump will be elected to a second term in-spite of his declining approval rating, based on the electoral college.

On July 19, 2019, Nate Cohn wrote an article for the New York Times entitled “Trump’s Electoral College Edge Could Grow in 2020, Rewarding Polarizing Campaign.”

Despite a growing divide in American politics, it’s looking more and more that the divide between the left and right will split favorably for the Republicans in the Electoral College.

If aliens abducted you what would you do?

In fact, I was abducted and then taken away from my parents, traveled all the way here and dropped off on Earth.

My “biological parents” adopted me and raised me in New Jersey.

After many years, a UFO landed in my backyard and crushed the doghouse. They came down the ladder and told me I was the prince of a planet named Vorquels. There had been a war and I was dropped off on Earth to protect me. The war is now over and I can return to Vorquels, but since they crushed the dog house and killed my dog, I said no.

I was pissed off.

Wouldn’t you be?

Antergos Bites the Dust

In the past I have written about Antergos Linux. A great distribution based on Arch Linux. Well, it’s no more. Sadly, Antergos has been discontinued.

Most Linux distributions are maintained by volunteers. Linux distros are largely free operating systems created and maintained by volunteer enthusiasts who know a lot about Linux coding. Often, as with Antergos, the developers run out of time to maintain it and the distribution gets continued.

Over the course of history of Linux distributions, many well known distros have fallen by the wayside, only to be over taken by yet another Linux version.

Antergos developers plan to keep their forum and wiki open for about 3 months more, but eventually they expect the bulk of their community will have moved on to other options.

I used to run Antergos for awhile, but now I’m pretty much settled on Arch Linux. The last few times I tried to install Antergos I ran into install errors, so I could tell the project was running into problems.

Good luck to the developers and community at large! We’ll be sorry to see you go!

When will the next Super Blood Moon be seen in the U.S.?

So you know what a blood moon is? It’s when the moon moves into the shadow of the earth (a total lunar eclipse), which causes the moon to grow fairly dark and at the same time pretty reddish as the image below shows.

A red moon, sometimes called a blood moon, takes place during a total lunar eclipse when the moon moves into the shadow of the earth and turns red color and quite dark.

Next, do you know what a supermoon is?

The moon has a slightly elliptical orbit around Earth. Sometimes full moons are further away and appear slightly smaller from Earth. Sometimes full moons are slightly closer to us and they appear larger. When the latter happens it’s a super moon.

The moon’s orbit around the earth is elliptical. The closest approach is called the perigee and the farthest point is the apogee. If there’s a full moon during the perigee, the moon appears larger and is called a supermoon.

A super blood moon simply means when the moon is slightly closer to Earth because of it’s elliptical orbit and it passes into the earth’s shadow. The last one was on January 20, 2019, and will be the only one in 2019.

The next total blood moon lunar eclipse won’t be until May 26, 2021, but it will not be visible from the United States or North America. North and South America won’t see a total lunar eclipse again until May 16, 2022. It will not, however, be a super moon at the same time. For that you’ll have to wait about 19 years.

Do you know if NASA has evidence of alien life?

Yes, I do know the answer to this. It’s no, NASA has no evidence of alien life to date. We only have theories and speculation, but without evidence there is no proof of alien life anywhere else in the universe other than good ol’ Earth.

That being said, most scientist believe life probably exists elsewhere in the universe, but until we actually find even a fossil of a microbe of alien life, there’s no evidence to date.
