Águila

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 11:30 PM
"We learned so much
about singing from each other
because you get to sort of
be them for a second
when you're shadowing
them in harmony.
It's like getting on an eagle
and getting to see the world
through that eagle's experience."

Exploring Inner Space* at The New York Times

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 11:35 AM

From Corrections: Jan. 1, 2020

The astronomy article, by Dennis Overbye, is dated Dec. 23* (a Monday).

The above reference to "Tuesday" is explained by the fine print
at the bottom of the Science Times  article — "A version of this article
appears in print on [Tuesday] , Section D, Page 6 of the
New York edition with the headline: In Battle of Giant Telescopes,
Outlook for the U.S. Dims." 

From the article as quoted on Thursday, Dec. 26,  
at https://uclafacultyassociation.blogspot.com

"Now, as the wheels of the academic and government bureaucracy begin to turn, many American astronomers worry that they are following in the footsteps of their physicist colleagues. In 1993, Congress canceled the Superconducting Super Collider, and the United States ceded the exploration of inner space to Europe and CERN, which built the Large Hadron Collider, 27 miles in diameter, where the long-sought Higgs boson was eventually discovered.

The United States no longer builds particle accelerators. There could come a day, soon, when Americans no longer build giant telescopes. That would be a crushing disappointment to a handful of curious humans stuck on Earth, thirsting for cosmic grandeur. In outer space, nobody can hear you cry."
