>Based on the observed signals, LIGO scientists estimate that the black holes for this event were about 29 and 36 times the mass of the sun, and the event took place 1.3 billion years ago. About 3 times the mass of the sun was converted into gravitational waves in a fraction of a second — with a peak power output about 50 times that of the whole visible universe. By looking at the time of arrival of the signals — the detector in Livingston recorded the event 7 milliseconds before the detector in Hanford — scientists can say that the source was located in the Southern Hemisphere.

Get hype!

First Higgs and now this. What a great decade for physics so far man.

Proving one of Einstein's predictions in his theory of relativity to be correct, now that's quite the discovery,

So it's confirmed!
You see gravitational waves, when you're on acid

They are all too busy trying to teach AI to drive for us. A some what wasted effort I think.

Self driving cars eliminate road accidents, saving countless lives. At least that is how it will be peddled to us.

They will though. No more drunk driving and no human error.
It will also save people tons of money if self driving cars are rented from an app.

Plus self driving cars + drones + 5G internet = flying cars baby

Fuck man, I'd rather have my own personal taxi that I can get drunk and smoke bowls in while it takes me places than drive a shitty car. The bonus is they're also setting them all up to be electric.

What happens if it breaks down or malfunctions in some other way? It would suck to wind up stranded in the middle of nowhere at night and unable to do anything because no one knows how to drive or repair cars anymore except for trained specialists.

I was thinking about that too brotha, but I guess electric cars are built with a multitude of systems to create redundancy; multiple brake systems in case the pressure gets lost it one, it just switches to another system for example.

It really emphasizes how cheap mechanics have become

This, incase of malfunction the cars on the road today that have autonomous driving of some sort already have systems in place that bring the car to gentle stop and ofcourse they include/would include some kind of manual control.

Inb4 assholes figure out that putting more mannequins in the path of an AI car than it's carrying passengers will cause it to decide to crash into a barrier rather than into the fake people on the road, and hackers reprogram your car for to deliver you and your valuables to a location conveniently absent of police and witnesses.
