Now I would really like an article on the various launch strategies. Why is it better to launch this from a jumbo jet than the ground? You save yourself the trouble of 30,000 feet (5% of low earth orbit) but i would think you add a lot of complexity. Read more

I read a fair number of game reviews, and this is one of my favorite game reviews. Ever.

This game is great in all the ways you’d expect. Yes the controls can be wonky but you soon forget it after HONK!ing at someone’s face.

Because even though its a small market share the market is still everyone on fucking earth. A small percent of a fucking lot is still a fucking lot. I worked in the Organic Food Industry and my boss said that if we capture just a single percent of the market we would be making money hand over fist.

As long as it’s not less healthy than a burger, I call it a win. Even if it’s just a one to one direct replacement, that works for me. Impossible burgers and beyond burgers are attempting to provide meat alternatives to people who want to eat meat so that we can lower our reliance/consumption of livestock on the food Read more

No, as it says in the article; bird strikes with turbines are a minor factor compared to things like cats, pesticide use, and habitat loss. However, simply changing the colors of turbine blades would reduce that even further.

Ironically wind turbines are often not spotted by birds until they are too close, because the blades are in shades of light gray and off white to help minimize visible impact on humans. Mainly as a sop to the unsatisfiable wind turbine haters in the first place. Start painting them pretty colors and you’ll reduce bird Read more

Nifty. You have to wonder if there’s anything that prokaryotes can’t deal with at the molecular level.

Being able to treat perc and trike groundwater pollution in situ would be huge. Current pump and treat methods are insanely expensive.

What’s nice about the picture is that the villagers seem happy that big science is being routed through the village. Man, when Fermi and Argonne bring oversized loads of science through the western and southwestern suburban Chicago streets, it’s more bemusement then happy. Like, what the fuck is that and how long is Read more
