NASA Missions Catch First Light from a Gravitational-Wave Event

NASA Missions Catch First Light from a Gravitational-Wave Event

“For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. Shortly after 8:41 a.m. EDT on Aug. 17, NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a pulse of high-energy light from …

RGB Neural Net

RGB Neural Net

“This projects goal was to build an intuiative and visually interesting way of seeing a neural network learn. I built it becuase I had some empty wall space. A separate computer runs the neural network training program and communicates with the RGB Neural Net over WiFi. Using the RGB Neural Net First I generate some data that I want the …
