Well, as I’ve stated repeatedly, I’m no Trump fan. But, I’m giving him his props on this episode. And, the cartoon is spot on!
I for one have jumped on the bandwagon, Trump is a winner!
Ted, sorry for the wait in moderation. You are now approved to freely comment. Thanks!
“The usual “mainstream” media tactics regarding a political outsider they hate is to ignore him or her: the example of Ron Paul should suffice to make this point. ”
Tell that pachyderm to get to the back of the bus and be quiet,
I missed this, from FEB 2015, Mark Dice collecting signatures for putting registered legal gun owners into FEMA camps on a college campus.
Interesting Dawn also had some troubles and went in safe mode a couple of days ago.
Now back online and continuing its descent closer to Ceres:
No new picture from Pluto yet :(.
Here is an older picture from Mars, where one can see carbon dioxide snow:
Some NASA guy had fun at the beach with a close up of algae foam is MY guess.
Lol, yes, it certainly looks like 🙂 .
The second link above does show the larger area where this is coming from
There is also a more detailed zoom where it is possibly to more clearly see the CO2 snow and a short explanation of the theory like how the dark structures form:
“When spring comes however, the surface heats up and the carbon dioxide frost eventually sublimates (turns directly from the solid to the vapor state), and forms jets of carbon dioxide mixed with dust, leading to the formation of the dark features we see in the image.”
Not sure if the coming decades will not bring a slow down or even a reversal in space exploration – at least for some time – so enjoying very much what is it available now.
To my mind space exploration is one of the few areas that can help increase our understanding of the universe…
It’s at this moment only limited by robotic intelligence so I expect space mining. It will stay very hard and INCREASINGLY uneconomic to use humans in space as machines are exploding in capabilities. THe concept for lunar mining and transport via a mass lifter EM catapult is developed; robotic mining on Earth is developed and in use; now, give it two decades and it might become commercially viable. Well 3 decades, add some delays.
While the decadent West devolves into a war All Against All combined with the search for new sex toys, the resource hungry East will proceed with technology.
Yes, that’s also my estimation of the 2-3 decades.
The question is also how much shared information will that wave of space exploration contain?
Interesting, as you talk about it, I always wondered why the EM catapult is not yet used or tested at least for replenishments to ISS or other such needs?
You know about StarTram right?
Drats, no, thanks for that:
We need to put one in Europe over the Matterhorn…
