    17 billion close orbit earth-sized planets. We all get 2 each, with a few spares.

    Sweet I always wanted my own planet.

    It's a shame we're never going to see any of them in our lifetimes :(

    Sleep pattern article on mars mission stuff.
    And fuck you EG forum, let me post the link!

    Read this earlier and I'm wondering how it can be right. Surely it is in the realms of the FUCKING OBVIOUS that poor lighting and no artifically constructed day/night cycles are going to cause problems? We have decades of electric light and shift worker studies, surely they can't have failed to take any of that into account for a project like that?

    Yay. Basically biggest thing ever found. Bigger than the biggest thing that should exist according to relativity. So big it breaks ideas about how the universe forms.

    The Opportunity Rover celebrates 10 years on Mars

    Pretty impressive for something thats was only meant to last 3 months.
  • Deleted user 23 January 2013 03:03:32
    Opportunity has driven 22.03 miles (35.46 kilometers) since it landed in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars on Jan. 24, 2004, PST
    Sounds like they used my old Citroen Saxo for parts. It got about as good mileage.

    Data could be stored in artificial DNA instead of hard drives in the future

    Great as an archiving system, if they get it to work.

    "With Carbon you could stick it in your recycling". Er, not with all the dielectrics and blobs of metal making up the terminals etc you couldn't.

    Still, another one to file alongside all the other graphene stories. One of them will come true eventually.

    Yeh, read a lot of different stories. I think graphene is just another one of the "give me funding" buzzwords of the moment, unfortunately :/

    Have ever mentioned what the energy density of Graphene is? Could it ever the high Wh/kg energy density or traditional batteries?

    I'm surprised not many people are commenting on this - to me it's an amazing result. Granted I'd like to see it repeated and above the 70% success rate but still...

    Taking information out of one animals brain and pumping it into another one (via the internet and over thousands of miles in one of the tests) is pure sci-fi territory.

    Yeah, read this story today. It's genuinely alarming how often I read that something has happened/been released that is pure sci-fi territory.

    I'm a young man, I can't even imagine what kind of shit we'll be doing in 30 years, and I'll still only be 50 and able to enjoy it/use it.

    Fuck me, they've given Big Dog an arm and taught it to throw bricks. The nightmare continues unabated.
