Oh no ! The data has been held back, not released, postponed . . . expectation put on hold, suspense . . .

big news from the galactic centre


. . . waiting . . . .

For long periods of time the floor where I work is quiet, the tap of keys, the hum of AC and gentle buzz of lights. People go about their business in a library like atmosphere.

Then occasionally there is a frenzy of activity, voices are raised, people congregate by the blackboard or round a computer screen. There's an air of excitment and tension, the expectation that something's about to happen.

Yesterday and today there's a big buzz as news is about to come in, gamma ray data that may or may not confirm the presence of dark matter in the galactic centre. Fingers crossed.

Hope it's nothing to do with . . . .
