Walkabout the Galaxy
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
The astroquarks are wrapped up with the passage of time and the aging of the stars, the universe, and themselves as the first annual year of the astroquark comes to a close. We discuss the red giant star Betelgeuse's mysterious year-end fainting (as in the opposite of brightening), and as this stellar neighbor nears its explosive end, we take a look at the lives of galaxies and the universe as a whole.
If you need to track down some scum or villains, or if you're engaged in some scum and villainy yourself, then find yourself a Mandalorian. For everything else, there's the Lagrangian! This generalized function can be tuned to meet your specific needs, whether they are finding the orbit of a planet, or a child on a swing, the Lagrangian will adapt to meet your dynamics needs. Try out our Lagrangian multipliers for extra benefit, and let us do some virtual work with D'Alembert's principle at no extra charge! With relativistic versions as well as classical, the Lagrangian is guaranteed to adapt to your needs. There are some things physics can’t solve. For everything else, there’s the Lagrangian.
