  • WHAT IS A BLACK HOLE?

Many people in this period, attracted by the "photo of the century" have asked us: but what is a black hole? 
It is probably impossible to explain what a black hole is with a few simple words, because black holes are among the most mysterious objects in our universe and still not fully understood. But we can try... making a few simplifications.

A black hole is a very dense object, a very much dense object... an object with such a gravitational field that not even light can escape. Every body with mass generates a gravitational field... the sun attracts to itself all the planets of the solar system, the earth attracts all of us towards the ground, etc... this force is called gravity. It is clear that in order to escape gravity it is necessary to "escape" with a speed that allows us to do it. If, for example, we throw a stone upwards, it will fall to the ground... gravity wins. If we had the force necessary to throw a stone upwards giving it a speed of about 11,000 km/s (40,000 km/h) the stone would not fall to the ground, but it would be lost in space "defeating" the force of gravity on Earth. We can therefore say that the faster you run, the more chance we have of escaping the gravity of a body. Well, it is a fact (at least until today) that nothing can go faster than light. Light is the fastest thing going in the universe: 300 thousand km/s. So when a celestial body creates around itself a gravitational field so large that not even light can escape, it appears BLACK. Black because from him cannot come out light and consequently nothing can come out.

So far the matter seems simple, but then you could ask yourself: "Is that all? Why so much mystery around these mythical black holes?". To answer this question we must enter into the most fascinating, most mysterious and even most difficult part of the question. Because Einstein showed us that when gravity becomes so strong things become "strange"... or rather, strange compared to our common way of conceiving the universe: space deforms, time begins to slow down, and what seems science fiction is instead reality.

  • The magnetic force of Magnetic Island is seemingly wanting to pull me back there ✨ missing those several months where I worked several hours at a tiny family owned resort on nelly bay in return for hours of swimming in the coral sea and hiking the koala hugged forests. I will forever cherish you and all your wonder Maggie Island. Thanks for loving me as much as I loved you xx

  • And not another word was said about “that vessel,” or her crew. What a marvelous ending to an almost perfect second season. @ansonmount maybe the peak pinnacle individual to sit in the chair aboard the graceful USS Enterprise. The performance of everyone throughout Discovery was absolutely brilliant. I seem to recall mentioning a show about “second chances”... never did I expect the SECOND SEASON to be so literal. And in more ways than one. I remain certain that this is only the beginning of one of the greatest stories ever told. And with a ship and crew like Discovery only time will tell. May she find her way, whenever she went. 🖖🏻 #llap @startrekcbs @cbsallaccess #startrek #discovery #thefinalfrontier #starfleet #redangel

  • Day #265 run/exercise dedicated to as the famous author Isaac Asimov said “hard-luck Scheele” who despite being the first to discover oxygen, tungsten (the heaviest metal actually varying his name (Tungstate mineral Scheelite) (meaning heavy stone in Swedish) Hydrogen, Chlorine and many other elements  and organic acids (Uric and lactic  acids- we use today in dermatology to soften the skin and moisturize our body or citric acid we use for softening our wrinkles) but lost the credit to others who used his data to publish first and thus get the credit... this happens today too!!! Carl Wilhelm Scheele 1742-1786, was born in Sweden (at that time part of the Holy Roman Empire) spoke German and at the age of 14 was sent away for 8years to another city to be an apprentice in a Phatmacy. He would use his time after work to read late into the night and perform experiments. He discovered “fire air” what we today call oxygen in 1771, when a famous university chemist professor complained he got bad compounds from Scheele’s boss. Scheele’s explanation of oxygen formation from the chemical reaction was so clear that the professor struck a long and productive friendship and recomended Scheele to the Royale Swedish Academy of Science. To hear more listen to the live video and have a beautiful day! PS. Photo credit of my friend Ike Mandalaoui who today went for his run earlier than I did💪🏻👍🤗#oxygen #carlwilhelmscheele #tungsten #discovery #history  #run #dedication #biography

  • Jet lag or just tired?

Tuesday saw me land in Panama for the first time. I met Tommy online through researching reviews and arranged for him to be my tour guide in Portobelo. He picked me up at the airport and drove me to this cute little apartment I'm renting for the next 16 days from his sister.

Our drive over, Tommy gave me a run down of Panamanian history, current political state, the Colón zone, the bridge both old and new and his favourite attraction in Panama as well as a little family history. He and his family are well known in Portobelo but only he and his sister live here now.

I miss having a fridge, it helps with perishables but I'm not living here so I'll have to make do.

After this video, I showered, prayed again and went to sleep. Surprised it didn't take long to dose off even after spotting a gecko in the other room... Portobelo, may you reveal your hidden joys to me
