Some quotes I read at lunch from my book, About Time: Einstein's Unfinished Revolution by Paul Davies.
"In fact, the Russians disliked the term 'black hole' for that very reason [that the object should actually be occupied by remnants of the dead star, not just black emptiness]. Out of earshot, they would jokingly call them 'labor camps,' since nothing can come out of them."
"When you have an infinite timewarp, one woman's microsecond is another woman's forever."
And the one that makes me want to jump out the window:
"Tall and somewhat imperious, [Edwin] Hubble had started life as a lawyer, but turned to astronomy, where he was to reveal a cosmic law that would be hailed as the discovery of the century."
Also, did you hear the news about Venus? Europe sent a probe that just arrived at the gaseous planet and it's starting to return some pretty cool pictures. Check it out.
(Thanks to Jake for forwarding me the article.)
