I want a better explanation from you so that I can understand on the two black holes colliding together than the one that was explained by the scientists in the video, LR. :D


I think, at last, it’s an explanation for the temporal related phenomena which has been plaguing me for years. How in the time spent traveling between 2 rooms I’ve forgotten what I went there for. :lol:

Cyprus begins construction of state-of-the-art observatory

The observatory will have two huge telescopes in separate halls: a 20-inch astronomical telescope with a rotating vaulted roof and a solar observatory telescope for daytime use with a mechanically movable roof. The building will also feature a presentation hall which can be used as a planetarium and an open-air platform where amateur astronomers will be able to install their own telescopes. The new observatory will be periodically open at night, allowing stargazers and astrology enthusiasts to observe the constellations or unusual phenomena in the sky.


Architecturally, winning many prizes.

...more news on Mars, and Cyprus in space,

https://www.seattletimes.com/business/c ... nstrument/

''A group of prominent scientists have joined the project. They include Marcello Coradini, former head of the European Space Agency’s Solar System Exploration division, Enrico Flamini, ex-chief scientist at Italy’s Space Agency ASI, and planetary geologist Lucia Marinangeli.''

''The scientists chose Cyprus to develop the instrument because it can be tested on pockets of the east Mediterranean island nation’s volcanic rock and soil that are similar to those found on Mars. Danos said scientists identified at least two areas where Cypriot rock and soil sediments weathered by water and wind erosion bear similarities to the Martian surface.''

Starlink, more than rural infrastructure communication-wise greatly improved, but light pollution, and more, the space-junks' danger.

Reminds me of a Ray Bradbury story from a very long time ago. "The golden apples of the sun". 8)

"Cyprus is the launchpad of the celebrations to mark International Moon Day which the United Nations General Assembly approved to be celebrated annually on 20th July, it was announced during an online press conference on Tuesday in Nicosia by the Moon Village Association in cooperation with the Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation."

One of my favourite authors when I was growing up, but can’t remember any of his stories now. :oops:
