Quantum Supergravity Could Explain Weirdness of Black Holes | Science | WIRED

Quantum Supergravity Could Explain Weirdness of Black Holes | Science | WIRED | Astronomy News | Scoop.it
Physicists have searched for a theory of quantum gravity for 80 years. But every proposed theory of how gravity particles might behave faces the same problem: upon close inspection, it doesn’t make mathematical sense. But as theoretical particle physicist Zvi Bern and his team pull off increasingly sophisticated calculations, the odds improve that they possess the framework of a working theory of quantum gravity, which would describe the quantum-scale source of the force that moors planets to stars and keeps feet on the ground.

Right Turn Ahead

Right Turn Ahead | Astronomy News | Scoop.it
Milky Way Season is upon us again. A 14 image panorama taken under very dark skies in the heart of the Riverina NSW Australia. The Milky Way was so bright I almost needed sunnies to turn down the glare! Lots of green airglow visible too. I had a lot of company along the way, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wombats, Emus, Bunny Rabbits and Foxes, I'm proud to say that to-date with all my driving around nightscaping no creature has been harmed, well except for a few bugs on my windscreen and grill.
