    Scientists don't underllstand quantum mechanics and don't care. Scientists who stray from the orthodoxy can't publish and are shunned. (But don't tell Ron Johnson.)

    Anyway, the orthodoxy eventually breaks down and the truth comes out. It just takes a while sometimes. Galileo was right.

    I realize that this is a review article and that a lot of the details (i.e., experimental design and results) aren't mentioned. But as it's written, it makes no sense...you can't draw conclusions from the results mentioned. I would be curious to read the primary papers on these studies.

    This kinda stuff has been known forever. When I did my postdoc, we had problem with the animal techs giving toys to some of rats or mice and not others, resulting in potentially altered responses doing behavioral tests.

    The Ignobels are out

    Apparently wombats poop cube shaped deposits, and someone spent time trying to figure out how

    MIT scientists accidentally create the blackest material ever

    Before MIT developed what it called the "blackest black" material to date, Surrey NanoSystems claimed that title with its original Vantablack low-temperature carbon nanotube discovery. Surrey's material was capable of absorbing 99.96 percent of light, although its scientists claim the company's second generation concept could be even darker than that (even if spectrometers can't apparently measure it). That hasn't stopped BMW coating one of its cars in it, though.

    "There are optical and space science applications for very black materials, and of course, artists have been interested in black, going back well before the Renaissance," Wardle says. "Our material is 10 times blacker than anything that's ever been reported, but I think the blackest black is a constantly moving target. Someone will find a blacker material, and eventually we'll understand all the underlying mechanisms, and will be able to properly engineer the ultimate black."

    Woulda been useful in Kubric's 2001, A Space Odyssey. The monolith wasn't black enough.

    Friend has seen some (art) pieces done with Vantablack. His comments were in the line of "surreal, mind boggling and no-way". Looking forward to see stuff live as that said individual has been around the bend and has been the holder the 'Understater of the Year Award' for several years in a row.

    There are some crazy Vantablack GIFs out there:

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Yep. But live...different ballgame. Apparently people get really strong dissonant feelings/symptoms when looking at the thingies. Brain just cant compute what you are not seeing in front of you. #mindfuck
    And, apparently people are so atavistically prone to poke that blackness so BMW decide to keep the vanta X6 behind the scenes at Frankfurt car fair, with very explicit orders to keep those sticky digits in the pants...

    Wasn't there an old man who fell in a 6 foot deep hole in the floor painted with vantablack? Because he couldn't see it was a hole or something.

    You can buy something that's really close to vantablack for a surprisingly reasonable price, but you don't get a lot and it's really fragile from what I've read. I've seen people use it for building cameras or other sensors

    That would be a paradox if any...

    Scientists have captured a view of a colossal black hole violently ripping apart a doomed star, illustrating a extraordinary and chaotic cosmic event from beginning to end for the first time using NASA’s planet-hunting telescope.

    Scientists find way to travel across ‘very distant points in space’ in a split second

    A WORMHOLE could allow space travel to the most distant regions of the universe in an instant and now a recent scientific paper has outlined a way to actually build on these anomalies of physics.
