    You should do a video on the CHIME team up in your neck of the woods in BC. They are doing radio astronomy using VLBI and large first of a kind static radio telescope. The amount of data crunching is like the worlds entire mobile data per day or some rediculously high figure like that. They use a combination of FPGA's, GPU's and CPU's to process that data in real-time on the premises. They recently found the second repeating fast radio bursts of it's kind which is quite astounding.

    They do not just know that it is a GW by having two detectors, they (or more accurately a collaboration of universities all over the world, including mine) model what a GW would look like using "Numerical Relativity" modelling techniques, so they can better sift through the shit that comes through the detectors, only then do they check with the other site(s) to see if they got the the same.

    Something something theory of relativity, but how do they convince tax payers to fork out hundreds of millions of dollars on these projects that seem to ultimately not really contribute much, except proving more aspects of the Theory of Relativity? In other words, what's the point? What to regular humans get out of it? Or do they do it for the _chance_ of finding some mind-bending life-altering tech (with real-life application)?

    • Aitor Rosell
      Aitor Rosell Před 7 dny

      basically this is for 3 things, 1 prove the theory of relativity, 2 prove black holes that also prove the theory of relativity and find black holes that helps to map the universe and that may help us solve the problem whit "What the fuck is dark matter" if whit that thing we found lotta black holes, the dark matter would be that black holes we previously were not capable of detecting.
      The theory of relativity is the base for many things like quantum physics and quantum physics are useful for creating better computers, so proving the theory of relativity further and further is useful, it would be also useful to disprove it, science that would lead us to a new theory more accurate that would help to make better tech, this experiments have not direct utility but are needed.

    You visited LIGO that is really cool. I remember when they got the result. Loads of people though it would not work, not sensitive enough or just is not possible to detect gravity waves. I bet they had a sick party on that day. Drunken professors swinging from the chandelier. I would have paid to have been there.

    • Aitor Rosell
      Aitor Rosell Před 8 dny

      actually there is a interview and they did not have a party there in fact they didn't believe the results themselves and keep searching for 3 weeks who was the one that manipulated the results and as they convinced themselves that the results where real slowly during those 3 weeks when they were convinced fully it was so gradual they just accepted it without a party, they thought the result was too good to be real, and they convinced themselves so gradually that it was real that there was not "Eureka!" moment, that is how good scientist work, skeptics even of their own results that had dedicated their lives to them

    Ting 11:53 - Folks take a REALLY good look at that map, because it's designed to, at a glance, look like they've better coverage than is experienced most places. I recently tried it in south central WA & it was unusable. Apparently, their network is much better for CDMA phones than GSM. BEFORE you try to use this map to do what people typically do with such, research the phone you're expecting to use with the network(don't just go by their site's confirmation that you're phone's compatible, that does NOT mean "will get good service"), & look at the area you're going to be trying to use it in MOST, & make sure the two match well. Does it show just Outdoors & In-vehicle? You will probly NOT get enough signal inside any building to let your phone even register the network's available. All that green you're seeing is just where they've got some small semblance of service. It's NOT an indicator of "good coverage". I REALLY wanted to only be paying ~$36/month vs the $100/mo I'm currently spending, but I ended up having to go back to my original carrier(which cost a $30 activation fee) after trying these guys out.
