    78%. Swapping majors aws.

    Amazed I got that high, tbh. The vast, vast majority of them sounded like plausible paper titles (knowing what lots of the words mean is really, really not a help) - and the vast majority of them (in both cases) seemed to be from string theory/SUSY/quantum gravity, so...

    Lower than Spark. I was guessing A LOT. Some I had no idea about but a lot of them seemed plausible....

    I guess it goes to show you how well differentiated science is these days - if it's not immediately in your expertise, you'll barely even recognize it.

    Honestly I think I got lucky - there were a few things which I thought "nah, that combination of words must be bull****"

    Here's some info: Major Discovery: 'Smoking Gun' for Universe's Incredible Big Bang Expansion Found | Space.com

    The data which showed that the universe was accelerating it's expansion was, by far, the biggest discovery of my lifetime. But there's lots of things we need to understand around it.

    First direct observation of a potential quantum gravitational effect? Massive if confirmed.

    If it's so massive, why didn't they notice it before, eh? C'mon.

    Haha.


    On another note, every creationist should watch the new cosmos section on the evolution of the eye. Won't convince them, but perhaps they can come up with more interesting arguments now (though I doubt it).

    The first episode of that Cosmos series was on Nat Geo here last night. FMD it was brilliant. Recorded it to show the kids next time they're over.

    Yea, it's such a fantastic introduction to all aspects of science. The first one was big bang theory and history of cosmos, the second one focused on evolution. Assuming the quality holds, if you watch all 13, I think that alone will make you a well informed citizen

    This big bang stuff is all very interesting, but none of it matters because science has proven that civilisation is going to collapse in a decade.
