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 it possible to block light pollution?
It certainly can't help block lights that are more than a few meters from you. Light pollution isn't just "there's glare in my eyes" -- it's "the better part of the atmosphere is glowing."

comment Air nozzle outlet profile efficiency, concave/convex
"Questions about the physical reasoning and analysis that lead to design decisions are on topic." This is very much an example of what should not be closed under the engineering policy.

comment Earth's direction in space
@userLTK There's no prohibition on youtube here. The only problem with it is when a question or actual answer (not just a comment) says "watch this video" and leaves it at that, forcing users to spend 5, 10, 85 minutes watching something to see what could have been summarized in a few paragraphs at most.
