Observation of Dark Energy Shortens the Life of the Universe

This Arsticle goes through the details. Which I don’t understand. And that makes me all the more certain that Al Qaeda will get their hands on dark-energy observation tools and use them to establish a Muslim caliphate!

    I can’t pretend I’ve got the chops to evaluate the argument, but the Slashdot thread was informative — a number of people making plausible claims to being quantum mechanicists in a professional capacity said that the paper was ludicrous. The idea that consciousness is the only way to collapse quantum states has been pretty well debunked, apparently.

    And I’m a little surprised at the Ars article. It’s definitely got the stink of something written by someone smart but unqualified who’s trying to make clever inferences while sounding “authoritative enough.”

    lol @ the al qaeda comment. Hopefully Dark energy is a myth, because if it isn't we are in some serious troubles.
