  • Interesting fact: Self-made millionaire Cyrus Field championed the idea of a telegraph from England to Newfoundland. Britain quickly agreed to subsidize. Congress went along by a one-vote margin. That was in 1856. Laying cable was tough. It kept breaking. The first line - two years later - died almost immediately. But 10 years later, there were two working lines. Communications changed forever.

In science:

First, we discuss the degree to which the condensation process of large-scale perturbations generates large velocities, and the times required for them to subside.
The nonlinear development of the thermal instability in the atomic ISM and its interaction with random fluctuations
In particular, we seek to determine the physical perturbation sizes at which the condensation develops supersonic velocities, the times needed for these velocities to subside, and the state of the leftover diffuse gas, which, as we shall see, contains significant fractions of mass still in the unstable density range.
The nonlinear development of the thermal instability in the atomic ISM and its interaction with random fluctuations
Nevertheless, it is reasonable to assume that the number of resonances involved is constant, of order l∞, and therefore the extreme tail of the distribution should subside at large L at the rate ∼ l∞/L.

An advantage of the acoustic mechanism is that acoustic power does not abate until accretion subsides, so that it is available as long as it may be needed to explode the star.
Multi-Dimensional Explorations in Supernova Theory
This refinement is essential for obtaining a physically meaningful description since it ensures both that there is an interface tension between the two coexisting phases and that the spinodal growth rates subside at large wave numbers.

In spherical symmetry, explosion is the “opposite” of accretion, and that source of neutrino driving subsides early after the onset of explosion.
