comment Can a human size object move so fast that it ceases to be observable?
@IncnisMrsi: Look at the current upvoted and accepted answer. It talks about how if the superheros pause every 1/30 of a second, etc. I am pointing out that this not the applicable period because you spend to much time with your eyes closed anyhow. Clearly some people think this is useful information, so why be a jerk about it?

comment Is this picture correct from the point of view of physics?
@user102417: Are you being confused by the water line to the left of the dam where the lake meets the trees? This is far off in the distance and not at a higher elevation.

comment How can such a high exponent arise in this physics equation?
@BenjiRemez: I really don't see how saying "it is an exponential law" explains how such laws can arise physically. Can you explain more about the case of 22 you mention? That might be a valid answer.

comment Possibility for radiation in dark matter that is not interactive with regular matter?
@BenjaminHorowitz: Are there no theories of dark matter where a dark matter particle can decompose into smaller dark matter particles? Even if not, any dark matter particle that leaves a larger collection is an "emission" that carries "energy".

comment The theory of moon creation when a Mars size planet hit Earth
+1 for "any solar orbit is stable...." Laypeople, as demonstrated by OP, seem to sometimes think there are special orbits and if you knock something out of the rut, something radical happens.

comment Is it theoretically possible to reach 0 kelvin?
@JerrySchirmer: No, it is so not contrary to common usage. Just because you don't know the correct usage, doesn't mean you get to hide behind "common usage". The Wikipedia articles on "kelvin" and "newton", among others, clearly know the right usage. The article on "kelvin" even adds "When reference is made to the unit kelvin (either a specific temperature or a temperature interval), kelvin is always spelled with a lowercase k..." Let me ask you this: How do you spell "kilonewton" and "millikelvin"? milliKelvin? Now if anything is rediculous, it's that!
