So I saw something about the great cold spot of the universe some how being able to prove parallel universes. Explain?>I understand CBR
Oh noes, I've been noticed. Um, I'm not sure what you're talking about, but I did find this>PARALLEL UNIVERSES DO EXIST AND RESEARCHERS MAY HAVE THE STRONGEST EVIDENCEhttp://www.physics-astronomy.com/2017/04/a-supervoid-is-unlikely-toexplain-cold.html#.WQMj-PnytEY
But I also found this>WHAT! NO PARALLEL UNIVERSE? COSMIC COLD SPOT JUST DATA ARTIFACThttps://www.universetoday.com/40413/what-no-parallel-universe-cosmic-cold-spot-just-data-artifact/
But who you're really looking for is a British chap who went by the name of "Space Elevator." I'm mostly just reposting his work from the archive
Is Life on Earth Premature from a Cosmic Perspective? >The universe is 13.8 billion years old, while our planet formed just 4.5 billion years ago. Some scientists think this time gap means that life on other planets could be billions of years older than ours. However, new theoretical work suggests that present-day life is actually premature from a cosmic perspective.>“If you ask, ‘When is life most likely to emerge?’ you might naively say, ‘Now,'” says lead author Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “But we find that the chance of life grows much higher in the distant future.”https://arxiv.org/abs/1606.08448
>Of all the designs submitted for Trumps wall, Otra Nation may be the only one advocating for a dismantling of the existing fence line. ... Otra Nation would provide better border security than any physical wall could by using a high-tech system of biometric surveillance and universal smart ID cards.>"Otra Nation will be the world’s first shared co-nation open to citizens of both countries and co-maintained by Mexico and the United States of America," the group says in their proposal.>Far from the wall Trump envisions, the MADE collective wants to build a high-speed, electric hyperloop connecting different parts of Otra Nation. According to the group’s proposal, the new co-nation would be six miles wide and span the 1,200 miles from San Diego/Tijuana to the Gulf Coast.http://fusion.net/story/396986/otra-nation-the-high-tech-ecotopia-border-wall-proposal-that-trump-needs-to-see/
They certainly have all the relevant buzzwords lined up. Seems unrealistic, but what does /mlpol/ think about the "here, but no further" aspect?
>>199>biometric surveillance>just an ID card
This is nothing more than a fucking passport, and we know Mexicans don't use them today.
Will cost 10 times more than a wall. Looks like shit, and will amount to nothing.
Just what I think of it.
if it's going to become a thing, I still want an actual wall on the border and that thing better be implemented in mexico territory.
"Biotech surveillance" and any sort of electronic "virtual fence" is an attempt to build a wall that can be willfully ignored. The people advocating these non-walls want a border that future presidents can direct the border patrol to neglect
I wouldn't mind no wall if they replace the wall with landmines
I like this idea. It is cheep and effective. One question thou, is there any animals (of importance) that could be hurt by this?
Bad news! The research they're referring to uses IAT as a basis that lacks consistency of results making it unreliable as a source.
Were implicit association tests ever firmly debunked?
It's more that they've never shown a robust body of evidence that is internally consistent and without bias.
Not really technology and science, but it is news.
Good news, too! Ebola is back in africa!https://www.afrika-news.com/ebola-outbreak-dr-congo/
Bad news: They seem to have a vaccine ready.

I LOVE YOU, EBOLA-CHAN!!!
She's not dead!! Good luck Ebola Chan!
I would think something designed for objectivity would be.
TLDR: natural gas trapped in ice, "potentially more energy than in all other fossil fuels combined">China said Thursday it has successfully extracted samples of natural gas hydrate for the first time in the South China Sea.>The samples came from the Shenhu area in the northern part of the sea, starting last Wednesday about 200 meters below the seabed at a depth of 1,266 meters, the China Geographical Survey said.>The institution under the Ministry of Land and Resources said about 16,000 cubic meters of gas, almost all methane, were extracted on average each day and described its trial mining as achieving a "historic breakthrough."http://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Economy/International-Relations/China-says-succeeded-in-extracting-gas-hydrates-in-South-China-Sea>Gas hydrate, methane hydrate in particular, is a cage-like structure of crystallized ice, inside of which are trapped molecules of methane, the chief constituent of natural gas.>According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), global estimates vary, but the energy content of methane in hydrates is "immense, possibly exceeding the combined energy content of all other known fossil fuels".http://oilprice.com/Energy/Natural-Gas/Energy-Breakthrough-China-Has-Successfully-Mined-Fire-Ice-From-The-Sea.html
This Anon's prediction: Windmills for show and gas for energy for the foreseeable future.

>Traditional jet engines create thrust by mixing compressed air with fuel and igniting it. The burning mixture expands rapidly and is blasted out of the back of the engine, pushing it forwards. Instead of fuel, plasma jet engines use electricity to generate electromagnetic fields. These compress and excite a gas, such as air or argon, into a plasma>The challenge was to develop an air-breathing plasma propulsion engine that could be used for take-off as well as high-altitude flying. “We are the first to produce fast and powerful plasma jets at ground level,” says Göksel. “These jets of plasma can reach speeds of up to 20 kilometres a second.”https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23431264-500-plasma-jet-engines-that-could-take-you-from-the-ground-to-space/
Only problem is getting a power source good enough.
I wonder, couldn't we move some of this discussion to /cyb/? This thread is pretty low-traffic, but so is that board.
