Posted by Mattias Axell on September 23, 2015

What have I Done Today?

  • Finished the Concept Research Design.
  • Participated in a meeting on Theory U
  • Prepared and refined 15 scan cards.
  • Fixed up the Scope Wheel.

  • Writing.
  • Feedback.

NASA X-ray Telescopes Find Black Hole May Be a Neutrino Factory

What Surprised Me?

  • That whatever the level of readiness you have, there will always be something reminding you of the existence of Murphy’s Law.
Murphy's law doesn't mean that something bad will happen. It means that whatever *can* happen, will happen. And that sounded just fine to us. - Cooper, Interstellar (2014)

NASA's Chandra Finds Massive Black Holes Common in Early Universe: A composite image combines the deepest X-ray image ever taken with optical and infrared data from Hubble.

How do I Feel about the Project Today?

  • I feel that I did not live up to my ambition with the look, quality and feel of this research design. But at the same time, it’s also something that I feel should be in “constant beta” that I iterate on.

What has Changed?

  • The thoughts on how I do the daily journal. I want to make it once every day, but not necessarily at night. I can always update it the day after when I find time. Maybe do it in the morning. It’s great to prototype the time.

Black Holes Go Mano A Mano: A galaxy about 330 million light years from Earth.

What are the Next Action Steps?

  • Sending some e-mails and getting in touch with some potential collaborators.
