Any braid can be used to stir fluid, and we can use this to define its "entropy". For a braid with 3 strands, the most entropy we can get each time we switch strands is the logarithm of the golden ratio! An eternal golden braid! Read more here: https://t.co/AIzgBAzXtk pic.twitter.com/quXsIo0Nxr

En serio, cada vez que lo pienso más me doy cuenta de que algo muy mal estamos haciendo si en un campo en el que exigimos tanto como la ciencia, sólo podemos tener contratos de 2 años

About 1.1 billion years ago, a 7 and a 12 solar mass black hole spiraled into each other. One solar mass was converted to energy and radiated as #GravitationalWaves. These waves wiggled a few pairs of mirrors here on Earth by about 1/1000 of a proton radius. #GW170608
