I sent this all three of our college kids. I sent it to each alone.An interview from 2015 with Eric Lander.
I was on my high school's math team. Unlike Lander's team, we met after school, not before.
Holy shit!Here's an article about an advance in theoretical physics that may bring faster-than-light travel into the realm of the possible.
Breaking the Warp Barrier for Faster-Than-Light Travel: New Theoretical Hyper-Fast Solitons DiscoveredAstrophysicist at Göttingen University discovers new theoretical hyper-fast soliton solutions. If travel to distant stars within an individual’s lifetime is going to be possible, a means of faster-than-light propulsion will have to be found. To date, even recent research about superluminal (fastescitechdaily.com
I have been looking forward to this for years!!!Looks like this amazing IR telescope will finally get off the ground later this year:
