    Studies of universes expansion win physics Nobel | R&D Mag

    They found that the light emitted by more than 50 distant supernovas was weaker than expected, a sign that the universe was expanding at an accelerating rate, the academy said.

    "For almost a century the universe has been known to be expanding as a consequence of the Big Bang about 14 billion years ago," the citation said. "However the discovery that this expansion is accelerating is astounding. If the expansion will continue to speed up the universe will end in ice."

    If the scientists were Liberals they would say that the light was weaker because it needed a subsidy.

    And yes, you're a fucking moron

    The universe is expanding.

    Sadly basic human intelligence doesn't appar to be keeping up.

    When/if we achieve "Singularity" THEN we'll be okay.

    Sadly I don't expect to be around to see it.

    DAMN! I'm going to miss digital immortality* by about a half a generation or so!
