is marked with a . But, IMO neither the question, nor any of the answer really live up to the exigence. Or am I being too strict?

    $\begingroup$ bilbo_pingouin - I agree, and have downvoted some of the answers for this reason. @DaaaahWhoosh Equations are not needed for it to be hard-science! $\endgroup$
