TV’s Top 50 Sci-Fi Characters

Do they even rank the top 50? It doesn't seem like they do. No list = total cop-out.

1987 Sci-Fi Writers Predict the Future

Reading this is chilling and eerie: http://blastr.com/2012/08/14-sci-fi-writers-outrage.php

Quote:
Because we will be in a trough between 20th-century resources and 21st-century needs, in 2012 all storable forms of energy will be expensive. Machines will be designed to use only minimal amounts of it. At the same time, there will be a general expectation that a practical cheap-energy delivery system is just around the corner. Individuals basing their career plans on any aspect of technology will concentrate on that future, leaving contemporary machine applications to the less ambitious or to those who foresee a different future.

Re: RWE's SciFi Corner

This is an intriguing thing. When I look at the photos I am struck by moments of clarity where the importance of this, the significance and the impressive scope of landing on Mars... landing a rover on a planet moving around the sun at nearly 54000 miles per hour, in a solar system that itself is moving around the galaxy at almost 515000 miles per hour. In a galaxy moving at 1.3 million miles per hour.

We intercepted that planet, landed on it successfully, and are sending back images from its surface.

That is ****ing impressive.

Question Is there dark matter at the center of the Milky Way?

Have astrophysicists finally managed to find elusive dark matter?



Quote:
The theory goes that dark matter is made of WIMPs ("weakly interacting massive particles"), which act as their own antiparticles. When a large number of WIMPs are gathered close together, they begin to destroy each other, producing energy that then generates other particles, which then generate gamma rays. So, if the theory's correct, a large amount of gamma radiation in a concentrated with no other obvious source is a sign of dark matter, and the UC Irvine team believe that's just what they've found.
Hmmm...

Quote:
But could the source be something other than dark matter? One theory is that the gamma rays actually come from dense stars called pulsars, and even Abazajian acknowledges that's a possibility.The work now will be ruling something like that out.
Doesn't sound like anything is conclusive just yet.

Quote:
"I can only emphasize that it is very difficult to disentangle all the different contributions to the observed data in this region of the sky, and I think more work needs to be done to make a definitive statement," said Simona Murgia, a fellow UC Irvine astrophysicist.

NASA's Curiosity rover is shooting at Mars rocks with lasers



http://blastr.com/2012/08/so-why-is-nasas-curiosity.php

Quote:
Over the weekend Curiosity fired 30 powerful pulses of a laser at a fist-sized rock called "Coronation" as a test of the rover's "ChemCam," an instrument that will eventually be used to determine the chemical composition of rocks on the Martian surface.

ChemCam works by targeting a rock and blasting it with several million-watt laser pulses until it's melted "into an ionized, glowing plasma." Then a telescope is turned on the light generated by the glowing plasma, and three spectrometers onboard the rover analyze it. That's right. We've got a robot car on Mars that can melt rocks with lasers.
