I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

My primary interest is in general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics simulations of black hole accretion.

comment Is “eco” shower mode actually using less power?
I think this is very much a physics question at heart: can the energy used to heat water vary by using more heat sources at a lower temperature?

comment What is third cosmic velocity?
@JohnRennie I think the OP just means "studying a chapter about <lowercase> gravitation," since "third cosmic velocity" is not an actual term and certainly appears nowhere in MTW. Perhaps it's a literal translation from some other language.
