We go LIGO

We here at Matouring just love technology and science.  Everyday there is something new to boggle our minds.  Lately we have been spending some time reading “The God Equation by Michio Kaku.”  Mind-blowing, to say the least.

“When Newton discovered the law of gravity, he unified the rules governing the heavens and the Earth. Since then, physicists have been placing new forces into ever-grander theories.

But perhaps the ultimate challenge is achieving a monumental synthesis of the two remaining theories—relativity and the quantum theory. This would be the crowning achievement of science, a profound merging of all the forces of nature into one beautiful, magnificent equation to unlock the deepest mysteries in science: What happened before the Big Bang? What lies on the other side of a black hole? Are there other universes and dimensions? Is time travel possible? Why are we here?”

If this is your thing, read this book.  If this is really your thing, go see it in action.   In Washington State, USA resides the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) facility where these kinds of questions are pondered and answered.  And you can visit there!
