In the wonerful world of politics and science!
Lets see the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad apparently used his speech time at the UN General Assembly to berate the United States for not bringing in Osama bin Laden to trial, instead of killing him and dumping the body in the ocean. As well as questioning the holocaust and the attacks on 9/11? As a result there was a mass walkout by foreign diplomats from thirty different countries while he was talking. Ahmadinejad continued attacking western nations for intervening in countries to weaken them through their military strength so they could plunder their resources causing them to be more dependent on the west. This was certainly bad timing for the Iranian president since tomorrow will decide whether Palestine will be a full or partial member in the UN. With hundreds of protests against Ahmadinejad at the UN in the streets of New York its no wonder the U.S.A. as well as Israel has stated they will veto the request by Palestine for UN membership. Its ironic that Mahmoud would attack the U.S. for its policies while constant stories come out with the way citizens are treated in his own country.
At Cern the location of the LHC(Large Hadron Collider) something starling has been found possibly a miscalculation but important all the same. They were testing subatomic particles called neutrinos sending them 732km toward Gran Sasso laboratory. And apparently they reached their destination slightly faster than the speed of light, by a few billionths of a second but faster nonetheless. Now this is not a official statement, they are now running extensive test to make sure of no errors in their calculations or experiments that could lead to a misunderstanding. But all the same if this is proven to be true a lot of scientific fact over the past century may be thrown out, if not reworked. But to my understanding the theory of how fast light travels was just that a theory, so breaking the bounds of our understanding doesn't shock me since that's what we have been doing since sience began. But I would ask, think of all the possibilities that can be opened up if this is true. At least the LHC has only possibly destroyed the theoretical world and not the real world like it was thought to do, why tear a black hole in the middle of the planet when you can do this right?
But to reiterate the death star is not complete.
