I just whish I was a bit smarter so I can understand all these amazing stuff:

http://phys.org/news/2013-02-metamaterial-similar-3d-minkowski-spacetimes.html

Just check out the titles of the papers of this guy:

http://arxiv.org/find/gr-qc/1/au:+Smolyaninov_I/0/1/0/all/0/1


"Modeling of causality with metamaterials"
"Quantum Mechanics of Hyperbolic Metamaterials: Modeling of Quantum Time and Everett's "Universal Wavefunction"

I found Graphene to be particularly amazing myself, once we can mass produce this I'll bet you could make some real good spaceships out of it that won't have so much trouble getting past the atmosphere and it's plentiful! Hell yeah! Cheesy

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphene

I might actually do some home experiments with it myself if I can O_O

I'm kind of sick of graphene.  It was exciting a few years ago but now it's just annoying.   There is a new article about some new amazing property of graphene pretty much everyday in phys.org.

Yeah, graphene will be awesome.   Someday.   But I fear it will be the material of the future for several decades.

Bleh, ignore them Tongue wish I had known about this years ago, the mainstream news at least don't understand shit about science and you can see it in the questions they ask or the way they write.

So they found a material which they can describe using the same concept they fished out of mathematics by guessing.
Really cool!



...

No seriously we are in the dark ages of science Sad

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

The metamaterial is an actual device that allows to simulate stuff on a table top.   That's a neat bonus as we still can't efficiently solve the differential equations of general relativity.


From http://arxiv.org/abs/1007.1130:
« Such metamaterial models provide a table top realization of metric signature change events suggested to occur in Bose-Einstein condensates and quantum gravity theories. »

wtf are you talking about?
Ever heard of a pencil?

Can you solve the Navier-Stokes equations with a pencil and thus predict the weather next month?

If so, please contact the Clay institute:  http://www.claymath.org/millennium/Navier-Stokes_Equations/

No. But that is unrelated.

Ten years ago, I was the kind of SF-fan guy who didn't like Star-Trek.  I even had some kind of contempt for it.  It seemed way much more fantasy than science-fiction.

And yet now I have stopped enumerating the kind of things that modern science come up with and that was depicted in Star-Trek.

Even the computer prop is of better quality nowadays. That thing Scotty is using looks like a brick.

The mouse hasn't changed much since it was invented 50 years ago.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

I can predict the weather because I have Tree Pollen allergies and my knuckles get eczema when it drops below 0 and gets really dry which means there's a likelihood of snow. Currently, I have no bleeding knuckles and I feel like I'm getting the flu, so that means I need to grab some tablets and wait until spring/summer is over Tongue

p.s. fuck the trees, bunch of pollen spewing cunts
