I love your videos but the last time I was this fascinated with your content was on the DWave Quantum Computer video. Keep up the great work and do more field trips! LHC in the future?

this is the worst case of destroying billions of dollars on unimaginable things whose importance is like how often my goldfish farts in a century. Only to build all that. And they improving it all over time. And all paychecks for scientists.....some African countries have a smaller budget.....

Actually linus the ktp laser Crystal's need alot more ir light then they release into green light do to the laws of energy conservation, you need about 100mw of ir light to make 5mw of green light. This is do to them having to dump alot of their energy into the crystal to get it to flores just like a ruby laser. Their super inefficient compaired go the more modern but more exspensive green lasers that dont do any light conversion.

You should do a video on the CHIME team up in your neck of the woods in BC. They are doing radio astronomy using VLBI and large first of a kind static radio telescope. The amount of data crunching is like the worlds entire mobile data per day or some rediculously high figure like that. They use a combination of FPGA's, GPU's and CPU's to process that data in real-time on the premises. They recently found the second repeating fast radio bursts of it's kind which is quite astounding.

They do not just know that it is a GW by having two detectors, they (or more accurately a collaboration of universities all over the world, including mine) model what a GW would look like using "Numerical Relativity" modelling techniques, so they can better sift through the shit that comes through the detectors, only then do they check with the other site(s) to see if they got the the same.

Why do people have to say that energy is conserved even when not asked. Is there someone watching everything who is desperate to prove that conservation of energy is not real.

Something something theory of relativity, but how do they convince tax payers to fork out hundreds of millions of dollars on these projects that seem to ultimately not really contribute much, except proving more aspects of the Theory of Relativity? In other words, what's the point? What to regular humans get out of it? Or do they do it for the _chance_ of finding some mind-bending life-altering tech (with real-life application)?
Aitor Rosell
Aitor Rosell Month ago
basically this is for 3 things, 1 prove the theory of relativity, 2 prove black holes that also prove the theory of relativity and find black holes that helps to map the universe and that may help us solve the problem whit "What the fuck is dark matter" if whit that thing we found lotta black holes, the dark matter would be that black holes we previously were not capable of detecting. The theory of relativity is the base for many things like quantum physics and quantum physics are useful for creating better computers, so proving the theory of relativity further and further is useful, it would be also useful to disprove it, science that would lead us to a new theory more accurate that would help to make better tech, this experiments have not direct utility but are needed.

You visited LIGO that is really cool. I remember when they got the result. Loads of people though it would not work, not sensitive enough or just is not possible to detect gravity waves. I bet they had a sick party on that day. Drunken professors swinging from the chandelier. I would have paid to have been there.
Aitor Rosell
Aitor Rosell Month ago
actually there is a interview and they did not have a party there in fact they didn't believe the results themselves and keep searching for 3 weeks who was the one that manipulated the results and as they convinced themselves that the results where real slowly during those 3 weeks when they were convinced fully it was so gradual they just accepted it without a party, they thought the result was too good to be real, and they convinced themselves so gradually that it was real that there was not "Eureka!" moment, that is how good scientist work, skeptics even of their own results that had dedicated their lives to them
