Next Gen Fabber May Go to Space Station

(permalink)

It is expected that Lunar and Martian explorers will build tools and parts as needed while traveling or using local resources. NASA scientists are interested in testing electron beam freeform fabrication EBF3 on the International Space Station. Such a device could build certified aerospace parts cheaper and using less material than conventional manufacturing methods.

Biggest Known Black Hole in the Universe!

(permalink)

Astronomers have identified the biggest known black hole in the universe. It is 6.4 billion times more massive than the Sun and lurking 60 million light-years away at the centre of a giant galaxy. The galaxy, called Messier 87 or M87, is a popular target for backyard stargazers in the constellation of Virgo and was suspected to contain a supermassive black hole. Now one of the world's most powerful computers has worked out that the cosmic cannibal is up to three times more massive than thought.

Perspective from Bad Astronomy

(permalink)
I just saw this on Bad Astronomy and I just had to snag it!



This is even better than marching through the snow to school for seven miles up hill both ways. :-P

SluggyWiki

(permalink)
I've created, totally on a whim, a wiki for Sluggy Freelance. It's a cool comic, but when I went looking for a wiki and didn't find one, I just up and started one. I've done very little to it since. So, if you like Sluggy Freelance and want to join in, be my guest!

BTW, I do intend to get to work on it eventually. But, I am also, like, procrastinating at my main hobby of colonizing the galaxy, so we'll just have to wait and see how things turn out.

Lotto Numbers

(permalink)
I just realized that even IF I wanted to play the lottery, my favorite numbers are 42, π, e, and i. I don't think I could play them.

Fringe

(permalink)
I always feel bad at how bad the science is in science fiction. Should I feel bad if I like Fringe? It's all bad science, right?
