comment How are magnetic fields transmitted?
Besides, when you have a rather established theory giving a prediction, when discussing theory it's pretty normal to assume the existence of the prediction.

@DeanK. there is no question of their speed of existence from the theoretical framework. It has also been verified a couple of times. There have been a couple of times gravitational waves seem to have been observed, too. I'm not sure, but I think LIGO has seen incontrovertible evidence of these waves, though they haven't seen anything interesting in them yet.

@DaveCoffman look at the date on that comment. I moderate Chem.SE, I know about it :P

Spacetime doesn't really end at the horizon.

comment Why do we care about black hole interiors' physics?
@dcgeorge Predictions are the final goal; but a mathematically rigorous model is how you get there -- most of the theoretical research is driven by model-making rather than immediate predictive ability.

comment Countersteering a motorcycle
I don't think the wheels are actually moving laterally here. The motorcycle is tipping, that doesn't need the wheels to slip. I suggest you post an answer, I'm not really clear on what you're talking about.

@BlackbodyBlacklight countersteering is just another word for lending your weight to the centrepital force to create rotation. I solved the confusion in the question, I don't have to mention countersteering to do that.

comment How to prove the covariant derivative cannot be written as an eigendecomposition of the partial derivative?
A bunch of your equations here are not inverting the index of the denominator ($\frac1{B_\mu} = C^{\mu}$, not $C_\mu$ for some quantities $B,C$)

Was meaning to post this anyway after coming back from class: moved to meta. Please continue further discussion there.

comment Silicon-based life
@Dilaton The first question itself is way too broad, since it first requires you to make some delineation on what one means by life. Nor is it an astrobiology question, it is a general biology question. And the rest are not so related, they could be asked separately. Again, my point about the community members was that not all may have noticed the broadness, they just noticed that it was closed for the offtopicness.

Besides, IIRC xenobiology was not allowed on the old Astronomy.SE. This is one of those questions where the astronomy/physics of the post has been tackled and what is left is the biology. But the topicality is debatable.

Also, there is a good reason to closing old posts, not for the heck and fun of it. People tend to see posts on this site and ask questions similar to them. Having broad posts / off topic posts / open basic homework posts left open lead to more of the kind being asked.

comment Silicon-based life
Some people reopened it because they felt that it was not off topic (which was what it was closed as). And they may be correct on that. However, look at the question again, it is four questions. Topicality aside, it's objectively broad, @Dilaton. You can vote to reopen again if you feel that it isn't broad. Feel free to bring it up on meta instead. Moderators are entrusted with the binding vote and are allowed to apply it on posts where they are reasonably certain that the post is closeable. In this case, I agree that the post is probably on topic, which is why it was opened, but broad.

comment Why isn't $F = \frac{\partial \mathcal{L}}{\partial q}$?
The quantity you call force above is actually known as "generalized force" in the context of lagrangian mechanics

@SachinShekhar ... so do it manually. You can still create a room.

@SachinShekhar you can do it manually, or the link will appear when you try to add another comment.
