    Yeah. Once you know how rainbows are made, and that all that matters is the angle between you, the raindrop and the sun, it's obvious they would be circles, provided there's enough moisture in the...

    Yeah. Rainbows are cool. There's lots of interesting optical phenomena that are in the same general category as rainbows, but I think most humans will encounter rainbows many times in their lives,...

    I remember those PBS spacetime vids.

    Keep in mind that they also said that while you are free to move about in time, you are irrevocably bound to move forward in space toward the singularity. I...

    The notion that space is expanding tends to make me ask, into what is it expanding?
    But the way we talk about the universe expanding is totally different than the way we talk about everything else...

    I also find ong's attachment to the word sovereignty to be odd. I think, as far as I can tell, he's just saying people have a right to self-governance. Whether good or bad, if people are in control...

    Your thoughts on conservation of angular momentum seem on point.


    The Earth rotates about its own axis in the same direction that the moon orbits the Earth. I.e. toward the East.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the recession of the moon is caused by the tide bulge being pushed forward by the Earth's rotation under the tide bulge. That forward push slightly speeds up...

    As always, if something we have never observed no matter how hard we've tried is suddenly observed, then of course we have to revise our theories.
