Re: All things Science related. λν = c

Mmmmmm, science!



A representation of the evolution of the universe over 13.7 billion years. The far left depicts the earliest moment we can now probe, when a period of "inflation" produced a burst of exponential growth in the universe. (Size is depicted by the vertical extent of the grid in this graphic.) For the next several billion years, the expansion of the universe gradually slowed down as the matter in the universe pulled on itself via gravity. More recently, the expansion has begun to speed up again as the repulsive effects of dark energy have come to dominate the expansion of the universe. The afterglow light seen by WMAP was emitted about 380,000 years after inflation and has traversed the universe largely unimpeded since then. The conditions of earlier times are imprinted on this light; it also forms a backlight for later developments of the universe.

Re: All things Science related. λν = c

Pretty interesting take on the acetic acid sodium bicarbinate reaction. It appears shes using some sort of composite paper-mache-like material to house the decomposition double replacement reaction. Whats most striking to me is the green substance emitted from the apex of the right circulus cone like structure. It could be as simple as a food pigmentation additive or perhaps shes experimenting with more radical substances. Stunning nonetheless.

Re: All things Science related. λν = c


Article by Nadia Drake. Science News

LINK TO STORY

Editorís note: This is the first of two articles previewing the Mars Curiosity roverís upcoming Mars landing. This installment describes the vehicleís landing on the Red Planet, scheduled for Sunday evening, August 5, Pacific Daylight Time; the next will cover the roverís science mission. Science News astronomy writer Nadia Drake will be covering the landing live from NASAís Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

An enormous robot is about to hit the red dirt of Mars ó not too hard, NASA hopes ó in search of life-friendly environments, or remnants of them. The Curiosity roverís off-road adventures will begin only if it survives a daring seven-minute, 125-kilometer plunge through the planetís carbon dioxide atmosphere.

Scientists on Earth expect to observe the touchdown at 10:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on August 5.

Re: All things Science related. λν = c

Could LSD push the brains of our brightest scientists and thinkers to a higher level? The Morning News on the government funded institute which, right before it was shut down, demonstrated just this:

For decades, the U.S. government banned medical studies of the effects of LSD. But for one longtime, elite researcher, the promise of mind-blowing revelations was just too tempting.

I'm not a big fan of casual drug use of any sort but this is an interesting article.

If it goes wrong for us I'm sure we'll get all the press we can handle.

Why would this get more coverage than an event which strives to show unity and competition across the globe? Or more than an event which shows humans of all ethnicities pushing themselves to the extremes of human endurance?

Don't get me wrong, it's quite the fascinating piece of technology. Just don't get why it deserves more hype and coverage than the Olympics.

Very interesting, logical approach to psychodelics. Micro dosing is really interesting, but you would have to be extremely careful.

Yeah, I'm not and I have a fairly cavalier approach to life so I'm not the best person for this. Just glad their are more sensible people doing this stuff.

Re: All things Science related. λν = c

This guy is nuts:

Bryan Lewis Saunders - DRUGS

For his Drugs series, artist Bryan Lewis Saunders allegedly took a different mind-altering intoxicant daily and on each occasion drew a self-portrait. He has since dialed down the intensity of the experiment after suffering mild brain damage and being hospitalized, but it remains a noble endeavor and one which reveals a startling journey. The substances imbibed include Xanax, crystal meth, cough syrup, Klonopin,the jailhouse drink pruno, PCP, and, results seen below, mushrooms, morphine, and bath salts.
