Fumbling toward spring

MSU News - March 9, 2016 - 11:39am
It's been a heck of a couple of days. I just can't seem to get it together. Oh, it's nothing serious-truly first-world problems-but still frustrating. I'm trying to get ready to go to a weeklong conference and I think the world is conspiring against me, even as the first hints of spring are hitting campus. This weekend, I had all sorts of errands to do. I had barely gotten out of my neighborhood when my car started making a horrible screeching sound. I turned around and drove home. I crawled underneath to see what it might be (you know, because I'm some kind of mechanic, only not) but saw nothing. Since it's still under warranty, easy-peasy-take it to the dealer. Except the closest dealer is 60 miles away. So my husband and I made the trek to drop it off. (The silver lining here is that is was rock salt jammed in the undercarriage and nothing serious.) When I got back in town, I tried again to go out and run errands. At my first stop, I got to the cashier and, after fumbling through my wallet, purse and pockets, was dismayed to discover my debit card was nowhere to be found. Failed shopping trip No. 2 was in the books. And I had to cancel the card and get a new one.

Solving the mystery of evaporating black holes

MSU News - March 9, 2016 - 10:21am
For decades physicists across the globe have been trying to unravel the mysteries of black holes - those cosmic monstrosities that devour everything in their paths, from various forms of information to light. But for all their extraordinary power, they are not immortal; they have a life cycle just like we do. Forty years ago Stephen Hawking, the world's foremost expert on black holes, announced that they evaporate and shrink because they emit radiation. At first, physicists were excited to learn about this life cycle, but then they became very perplexed. If a black hole evaporates and shrinks, what happens to everything it devoured during its lifetime?
