Gravitational Microlensing


Published on

The history and physics of gravitational microlensing: its use to search for dark matter and planets.

Talk for a general audience

Published in: Education
  • My computer sessions in Frome public library are mirrored, rimmer, by robot-rabbit-humanoid-parasitic criminals that have attacked me constantly for 17 months. They expected that I would be intimidated against reporting crimes to the police, I cannot be intimidated. They hack in to weapons, rays or beams, ionising equipment, change molecular structures & air direction. I have evidence of the pirated Windows, Omni, Urchin, bibliography, names, addresses, IPs, source code. Get these grotesque criminals out of my life. Ruth Jolly.
