skyrim mods are wild like on one hand you have mods to make the game more immersive w enbs and other cosmetic changes that are still lore friendly and then you got people taking screenshots of their dragonborn wearing a tank top and cutoff denim shorts in a modern kitchen like. bruh
How Uncertain Are LIGO’s First Gravitational Wave Detections?
“What’s vital to understand is that no one is claiming LIGO is wrong, but rather that one team is claiming that perhaps LIGO has room for improvement in their analysis. And this is a very real danger that has plagued experimental physicists and astronomical observers for as long as those scientific fields have existed. The issue is not that LIGO’s results are in doubt, but rather that LIGO’s analysis may be imperfect.”
Three times now, the LIGO collaboration has produced very strong evidence that black hole pairs, from across the Universe, inspiraled and merged, producing gravitational waves. The twin LIGO detectors in Hanford, WA and Livingston, LA each detected these signals, and the signals were correlated between both detectors. For the first time ever (and the second, and the third), we had directly detected gravitational waves. But last month, a team of independent scientists from Denmark attempted to reproduce LIGO’s analysis, and noticed something that shouldn’t be there: noise correlations between the two detectors. Noise is supposed to be uncorrelated, and yet the noise correlations peaked at the moment of the inspiral-and-merger event. It doesn’t mean that gravitational waves aren’t real, but it does mean that LIGO, perhaps, has room for improvement.
Astronomers detect orbital motion in pair of supermassive black holes
Using the supersharp radio “vision” of the National Science Foundation’s Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), astronomers have made the first detection of orbital motion in a pair of supermassive black holes in a galaxy some 750 million light-years from Earth.
The two black holes, with a combined mass 15 billion times that of the Sun, are likely separated by only about 24 light-years, extremely close for such a system.
“This is the first pair of black holes to be seen as separate objects that are moving with respect to each other, and thus makes this the first black-hole ‘visual binary,’” said Greg Taylor, of the University of New Mexico (UNM).

OH MY GOODNESS THIS WAS A STRANGE IDEA. xD
How does one manage to turn a very ~sexy~ Bruno Mars song into a ridiculous parody about a stuffed bear, time-traveling, and super hot warriors from Japan’s Sengoku Era? The answer: Ikémen FREAKING Sengoku. 😅
This is basically a super-condensed version of the game’s prologue. Did I mention that the character I had in mind while writing this was the MC’s most loyal companion a.k.a. her stuffed bear, Bearsace?
^^Look at this stuffy! Isn’t it adorable??? Also, I applaud the MC for making such a clever pun~. 👏
DISCLAIMER: I wrote this song in an hour, more or less (Minus editing, which didn’t take too long tbh. :P). So don’t be surprised if it sounds silly (Because it totally is.). Also, I don’t have a super smooth & sexy voice like Bruno Mars, so sorry for my baby-like voice. And finally: I’m sorry if I mispronounced “Sengoku” (I’m such a noob, LOL.). 😅
Yep: I’m back with the “quality” shitposting. Enjoy(?) xD
