“And when the universe has finished exploding all the stars will slow down, like a ball that has been thrown into the air, and they will come to a halt and they will all begin to fall towards the centre of the universe again. And then there will be nothing to stop us seeing all the stars in the world because they will all be moving towards us, gradually faster and faster, and we will know that the world is going to end soon because when we look up into the sky at night there will be no darkness, just the blazing light of billions and billions of stars, all falling.”

Egypt Turned off the Internet.
Reports are emerging that Internet has gone down in Cairo and perhaps throughout Egypt, only hours before the largest planned protests yet.
According to a report from The Arabist, “Egypt has shut off the internet.”
Multiple Internet Service Providers are affected according to the report, which states:
I just received a call from a friend in Cairo (I won’t say who it is now because he’s a prominent activist) telling me neither his DSL nor his USB internet service is working. I’ve just checked with two other friends in different parts of Cairo and their internet is not working either.
The news of the Internet outage came minutes after the Associated Press published a video of an Egyptian protestor being shot.
CNN reporter Ben Wedeman confirmed Internet is down in Cairo and writes, “No internet, no SMS, what is next? Mobile phones and land lines? So much for stability. #Jan25 #Egypt”
The Los Angeles Times is also reporting that BlackBerry Internet has been taken offline in Egypt.
UPDATE (7:05 p.m. ET) Reuters confirms ”major network disruptions” for Egypt Internet users at this time, with reports in Cairo that there is no Internet altogether. A top state official declined to comment.
