Hey team ! Today I learnt a really interesting fact thanks to the book written by Sean Carroll called Something Deeply Hidden. I just have to tell someone. The power generated in gravitational waves by the Earth orbiting the Sun is close to ( choose one ) :

A. 2 Watts

B. 20 Watts

C. 200 Watts

D. 2 Kilowatts

E. 2 Megawatts

.... all answers/guesses must written on the back of a $50 note. :-)

ANSWER >> Yep it's C : 200W, a mere few light globes worth. And to think that the little wiggles detected at LIGO represent the blowing off of several Sun's worth of mass/energy. << ANSWER

Cheers, Mike.

There, all your letters A, B, C, D, and E on the back and a nice lady too!

Well Dr Hewson, since I didn't get any award for my $50 bill I had to mention I was just watching an Aussie News guy and he sure was funny doing his commentary.......I might have to google him and see if he always does that (he looks closer to my age than yours) Laughing ........and doing some beta testing for the CMS we just tried our hardest but still couldn't make a decent sized mini-black hole to show everyone over here Cool
