Photography – Object for Tuesday

by Dawn Farmer

Yesterday was lettuce on a tortilla – congratulations to Rho.

Have a guess at this image – same rules as yesterday.

  1. OK, I want to change my guess to agree that it is a stack of CDs but they are still in the plastic wrap.

  2. Bah! None of you have any imagination. Clearly, this is 3 microsecond exposure of green-shifted particle flux radiation orbiting a tiny black hole. Dawn has a warp drive in her basement.

  3. Rho, Nah. I just used to watch way too much star trek. Oh, and I’ve been trying to get physicists a question for me for ages. Is it possible to put photons in orbit around a black hole like they were in an enormous fiber optic cable? And if it is, can you “fill up” the cable? I think Dawn is testing this theory with her warp drive. 🙂

  4. Ubertramp – you weren’t suppose to let on about that whole warp drive thing… just for that I have to award qy as today’s winner.

    You guys are good.

    See you tomorrow.

  5. And that’s a Romulan warp drive, thankyouverymuch. They’re the only one’s nutso enough to embed an evaporating black hole in their engine core instead of using matter/antimatter collisions in a dilithium core.
