Development of artificial black holes would enable us to measure how incident light is absorbed when passing through them," says Chen. "They can also be applied to harvesting light in a solar-cell system."

Interesting stuff. Physics is really interesting and just gets more interesting the more you get into it. I feel bad for people that never took college level physics. They never got to learn and experience how cool the universe is.

I might not be taking Physics but do plan to take Astronomy to for one of my core classes. For me the stars are more amazing than the math that governs them even tho I am majoring in Mathematics

Also am exited that the new plasma engine is almost complete since it will now only take 39 days to get to Mars instead of 6 months which should greatly increase our space exploration plans.
