    I enjoy all the content of this channel, from build guides to the fun DIY, but it's even better when they go in depth on something really interesting and do it very well.
    Then again as a physicist I may be biased 😅

    this is the worst case of destroying billions of dollars on unimaginable things whose importance is like how often my goldfish farts in a century. Only to build all that. And they improving it all over time. And all paychecks for scientists.....some African countries have a smaller budget.....

  • GoldenFox

    Actually linus the ktp laser Crystal's need alot more ir light then they release into green light do to the laws of energy conservation, you need about 100mw of ir light to make 5mw of green light. This is do to them having to dump alot of their energy into the crystal to get it to flores just like a ruby laser. Their super inefficient compaired go the more modern but more exspensive green lasers that dont do any light conversion.

    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.
