Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

I hope everyone is settling nicely into the new year. Here are some selections from the physical science categories in the last week on ResearchBlogging.

Temporal cloaking sounds like something Romulans might do – but in fact it was scientists at Cornell who demonstrated this amazing phenomenon in the lab. Dr Skyskull gives an excellent and detailed explanation of this work for the non-initiated.

The discovery of the two most supermassive black holes ever seen in the Universe was a great recent observational result for astronomers. Charles Daney describes the background and the method of detection on Today’s Science.

On Greg Laden’s blog, Greg alks about recent work on changes in the salinity of our oceans and its relation to climate change.

Thanks for the great posts and I’ll be back next week with more selections.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this in my search for something concerning this.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I usually do not write many responses, however I read some of the responses on this page ResearchBlogging.org News » Blog Archive » Editor’s Selections: A Cloak in Time, Supermassive Black Holes, and Ocean Salinity. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it seem like some of the responses look like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    I have seen plenty of useful factors on your internet site about computer systems. However, I have the judgment that lap tops are still not nearly powerful more than enough to be a good option if you frequently do tasks that require lots of power, including video editing and enhancing. But for net surfing, statement processing, and quite a few other common computer functions they are perfectly, provided you cannot mind the small screen size. Thank you sharing your notions.
