I'm a software developer at RA Consulting. In my professional life I mostly do Java and C#. Outside of work I'm writing Haskell, Scala, and Scheme.

I have a master's degree in physics from the University of Heidelberg and have worked as a researcher at the ARI.

comment Can we “fill” an atom with alpha particles?
What do you mean by "fill an atom"?

comment How could we define speed without time?
What does the word to change or a phrase like being X mean if there is no time?

comment Would one actually find their doppleganger in a “Googolplex Universe”?
Exactly, he's implicitly assuming all configurations are equally probably. There is no reason to believe that.

comment How powerful would an explosion have to be for its effects to be felt worldwide?
You might be able to use some (extremely sturdy) deflectors to shape the pressure wave such that it reaches farther.

comment Energon: is it possible?
A cube of antimatter would do the trick. But it would be hard to isolate from its surroundings.

comment How to measure trajectory regularity?
@BrandonEnright: Right, this belongs more to Computational Science.

comment How to measure trajectory regularity?
In that case you could calculate the standard deviation of the absolute speed. A more regular path will have a less wide speed distribution. This is not a perfect measure for regularity however, just an indicator.

comment How to measure trajectory regularity?
Do you only have the trajectory or also the velocity at each point on the trajectory?

comment Does supercavitation create vacuum?
How fast does the shrimp have to move his claws through the water? Does it have to be supersonic?

comment How can individual photons have different amounts of energy?
This is the better way to write the equality because it shows that the mass is the square of the energy-momentum 4-vector and therefore invariant.
