  1. This visualization presents 22 X-ray binary systems that host confirmed black holes at the same scale, with their orbits sped up by about 22,000 times. The view of each system reflects how we see it from Earth. Star colors ranging from blue-white to reddish represent temperatures from 5 times hotter to 45% cooler than our Sun. In most of these systems, a stream of matter from the star forms an accretion disk around the black hole. In others, like the famous system called Cygnus X-1, the star produces a hefty outflow that is partly swept up by the black hole’s gravity to form the disk. The accretion disks use a different color scheme because they sport even higher temperatures than the stars. The largest disk shown, belonging to a binary called GRS 1915, spans a distance greater than that separating Mercury from our Sun. The black holes themselves are shown larger than in reality using spheres scaled to reflect their masses.
  2. Perhaps their approach of having people focus on the music is to prevent them getting a beer.
  3. So, this clarifies what the speed was supposed to be (45 rpm) for this record. It's strange to me, as I only really liked it at 33 rpm. The music seems too rushed at 45. I have the same issue with Jeswa - Skone, only there the intended speed seems too slow.
  4. "Most of this album was recorded around 2017 at the North Sea Institute for the Overmind This month I finally had some energy to get the artwork, tracks and "mastering" etc. together. As usual heavy tripped out raw melodic Smackos synth compositions for all your deep listening hobbies" https://legowelt.bandcamp.com/album/fables-from-a-silent-wave
  5. Stars orbiting Sagittarius A* at the center of the Milky Way. S2, the central star that swoops around the black hole reaches a speed of 7000 kilometers per second!
  6. (Sorry, your opinion on this doesn't really do much for me :/) 🤭 But seriously; doesn't it?
  7. Gaspard Ulliel 🥺 He died after a ski accident. Only 37 years old... https://variety.com/2022/film/news/gaspard-ulliel-dead-moon-knight-marvel-1235157242/
  8. Ok, I just found out about this wonderful piece, 'The Grand Canyon Suite' by Ferde Grofé. It's been sourced for three tracks in stage 2 of EATEOT (C4, D1 and D5). I'm not very familiar with American composers and their work. This makes me want to find out more about them. Apparently, Grofé also played a major part in making Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue a success by adapting the score for orchestra. Original 1932 recording, conducted by Paul Whiteman. Later recordings with better sound quality are also worth checking out.
  9. Ovals & Emeralds on vinyl, finally! Bit of a pity it's not an emerald green record, as it was originally intended to be on Mush Records.
  10. From the description of the tracks in the 5.3.11 thread I think it's the one that's known as Live Jam Session Vol. 1. Not sure, but pretty sure.
  11. Ice to Goe is an especially satisfying transition 😆
  12. I liked Aphex up until the SC dump. Then I loved him.
