“True, but I don't think the gammas are created whole.”
“March 2nd, 2009 at 6: 39 am the idea would be to find that which exceeds the speed of light (that which simultaneously destroys sub-atomic particles) and develop a detector so the returning data would “race” the gammas back to us - BUT - how much warning time would that really give us - anyhow???”
Looking for tweets for gammas.
