Walkabout the Galaxy
Quaoar; Uranus's moons; black holes
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
We explore the strange ring system of dwarf planet Quaoar, and discuss a new study that suggests that Uranus's four largest moons (which aren't really very large!) may have subsurface salty oceans. In the astrophysical realm, black holes may have emerged from the chaotic soup of energy during the inflation era when the universe was not even minutes old. Add to that some nerdy computer trivia and you've got yourself another episode of Walkabout the Galaxy!
If you're feeling stuck in a rut, get Moore's Law to give your business a boost. Taking advantage of exponential growth, Moore's Law will supercharge your affairs. Whether you're putting transistors on a chip or tribbles in a grain storage unit, get Moore's Law to double your investment and double it again. Available in the original two year doubling time, or for a modest surcharge, get even faster acceleration. It's always the more the merrier, with Moore's Law. Moore's Law cannot be held responsible for the results of overflowing finite capacities. Moore's Law, timing is everything (Texas Instruments).
