Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.) said the Senate unanimously passed a resolution to designate October 30th, 2020, as National Day of Remembrance for workers who helped develop and support the nation’s nuclear weapons program.
“Between 1942 and 1945, as many as 75,000 individuals in Oak Ridge worked on the Manhattan Project, and today, the Y-12 National Security Complex employs more than 4,000 Tennesseans. Our country is safer because of these patriotic men and women, and I’m proud to represent a community of such vital importance to our nation’s defense,” Senator Alexander said.

Pasadena, CA – When you look up at the night sky, how do you know whether the specks of light that you see are bright and far away, or relatively faint and close by? One way to find out is to compare how much light the object actually emits with how bright it appears. The difference between its true luminosity and its apparent brightness reveals an object’s distance from the observer.
Measuring the luminosity of a celestial object is challenging, especially with black holes, which don’t emit light. But the supermassive black holes that lie at the center of most galaxies provide a loophole: They often pull lots of matter around them, forming hot disks that can radiate brightly.
