I think she should be in trouble for misspelling Sulfur, Uranium, and Phosphorus. Seriously, you couldn't run that through spell-check before sending it in? :face:

SpaceX is holding a news conference at 10 p.m. eastern time tonight to introduce the Dragon V2 capsule, which is the man-ratable crewed version. According to Elon Musk, the capsule presented tonight will be 100% flight hardware and not a mock-up. Considering the tension between the U.S. and Russia over the Ukraine, I bet NASA would really like another way to get to the ISS other than buying rides from the Russians.

Didn't they just launch some astronauts up to ISS yesterday?

The Russians, yes. A new 3-man ISS crew sent up yesterday on a Soyuz. The two countries are still working together on the space station, although threats are flying. In response to the sanctions over Ukraine, the Russians have threatened to stop selling the NK-33 (aka the Aerojet AJ26-62) and RD-180 engines for any "military" launches. Two of the former engines are used in the first stage of the Orbital Sciences Antares, and one of the latter powers the first stage of the ULA Atlas V. While the Antares doesn't really fly military missions, the Atlas V is a mainstay launcher for the Air Force and the National Reconnaissance Office.

That's actually one of the most logical mind blowing arguments you'll hear.

Interesting. Never heard of Ophiuchus.



Incidentally, if you're a science buff and haven't watched all of Brady Haran's videos (Sixty Symbols, Deep Sky Videos, Numberphile), shame on you for six months.

Couldn't decide if this was Pens related, belonged in the Poop thread JTOR, or this thread. Oh well.

yes... this is an actual scientific, peer-reviewed, paper.

Elon Musk Donates $1 Million to New Tesla Museum

As much as I dig Elon Musk and Tesla Motors, and as glad as I am that he's being righteous here, I think this is a bit of an opportunity lost for the company. I think the five principal backers of the company should have pledged $1.5 million each; that would have resulted in $7.5 million in funding for the museum (which needs $8 million to get built) and a lot of pretty good press for TM.

Citation scam:

I have many issues with the culture of academic publications and how this culture can lead to such scams.

Just saw this. Pretty crazy.

It has been grown on sheets of aluminium foil which can be seen in pictures released by the company. While the foil is crinkled and uneven, the surface covered by Vantablack appears completely smooth because of its light absorbing property.

Odd that the worlds largest anything is found so late. Gives me hope for further interesting discoveries. Also, I concur: NOPE.
