The underlying cause of all progress
1) improvements in technological ability to make measurements
2) improvements in notation for theoretical studies
Speculations on astronomy, astrophysics, news I find interesting,
theoretical issues, science and science policy.
In particular: gravitational radiation sources, black holes, planets and astrobiology.
I will digress into computational physics, science fiction and general issues and basically whatever I feel like whenever.
And, of course, cats.
