Walkabout the Galaxy
black holes, Hubble Constant; Lagrange Points
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Some clever detective work has found one of the smallest black holes known. The astroquarks also take a look at the puzzling mess of the Hubble Constant and the disagreement over its value. Plus, the interstellar comet's supply of water seems consistent with our own solar comets, and the Lagrange Points (the musical quintet, not the set of gravitational potential equilibria in an orbiting two-body system, duh!) sponsor our show. Tune in for all that and universal trivia. It's a veritable astroquark soup!
The Legrange Points
The Lagrange Points: Mixing up genres from the blues, to funktronica, to disco, hip-hop, and punk rock, with the Lagrange Points you'll be dancing like the Pointer Sisters and the BeeGees teamed up with Lady Gaga and Madonna. The Five Lagrange points are whirling around every pair of heavenly bodies in that classic Lagrangian groove. So synch your phones to the Lagrange Points for some sweet celestial rhythms to help you get around while you go around. The Lagrange Points: Where do you want to go today? (Microsoft, 1994).
