Here Be Dragons Pt II



"The survival of the human race depends on its ability to find new homes elsewhere in the universe because there's an increasing risk that a disaster will destroy the Earth, world-renowned scientist Stephen Hawking said Tuesday."
Hawking's discovery that Black Holes give off radiation has the greatest potential affect on Earth. They convert mass into energy far more efficiently than nuclear fusion. He deduced that mathematically as a young postdoc. At the time, his colleagues thought it was rubbish. You go, Dr. Hawking!
This is the temple of Uluwatu in Bali, situated on a blade of rock jutting hundreds of metres over the ocean. The temple's true inhabitants are the monkeys, to whom we are but guests. I saw one little guy snatch the glasses off a tourist's face, then happily hang on to them while humans tried comically to make him give up. Finally the monkey threw the glasses off the railing, a 250-m drop!
Yesterday we saw a baby dragon. Tomorrow the monkeys will accompany us to the mouth of a real fire-breathing monster. There we may see evidence of Hawking radiation in action.

I think such conflicts among staff and leadership should be not in learning place because it may cause bad affect upon the reputation of the institute as well as the learning procedure. Both management and leadership should join hands for the development of the institute and I am not trending towards any party but forcing them to join hands for best future of the institute. I have a tip for students to get custom writing service from our website for their academic needs.

How does one force feed a black hole quick enough to avoid its detonation? To be useful as an interstellar drive it needs to be radiating at least ~100 kW/kg - if not more.
