All your science in here



Or in non-SI units, 0.43 Astras.


Mind blowing



I got a new power cord. What difference does that space shit make to my TT ? Huh, huh ?


It would make an adequate PSU


Hmmmmm :thinking:


I confuzz, will this fuck with my Schumann?




The Schumann will transcend it in every respect


This sentence should be a meme for all ills.


If you follow the story back to the Wikipedia source he quotes then it says there that the power was 3.6 x 10^49 watts which is actually a thousand times bigger than the number in his brackets. I reckon that would be 36 (not 3.6) septillion yottawatts. It was only for a few milliseconds though.

You probably wouldn’t have wanted to have been in the same galaxy when it went off. If I’ve done the sums right then, say, the energy yield was 10^47 joules. Here on earth the sun delivers perhaps 5 x 10^7 joules to every square metre at the earth’s surface each day (obviously it all comes in half the day). The black hole event would have delivered all of that in a few milliseconds if you were standing a distance of about 2 x 10^19 metres away. That’s rather smaller than the radius of our galaxy (5 x 10^20 metres) but it’s probably still too close for comfort.



Still not enough to drive a pair of fuckin’ Apogees.


Don’t know what it all means but love the words Septillion Yottawatts. Could also be the name of JRM’s next sprog


Or @OzzyOzzyOzzyOiOiOi’s next AAAC.


Considering how far away it was the picture quality is amazing.


Me too. Yotta- is the highest prefix they’ve got round to naming (kilowatts, megawatts, gigawatts, terawatts …) and is 10^24 watts.

A septillion (as in million, billion, trillion …) is another factor of 10^24.



Is a septillion more or less than a brazilian?


I wouldn’t ask Diane Abbott :potato:


Diane Abbot and a Brazilian - the mental image is going to give me night terrors.:face_vomiting:
