[Science] The Great Issue of Our Time… (John Hinderaker) …is whether, as a people, we are too dumb to sustain a democracy. This question arises often; for me, most recently, upon seeing this Daily Mail headline: “Twitter user stuns the internet with math that proves one 18-inch pizza has more in it than TWO 12-inch helpings.” The theory was posted by U.S.-based Twitter user @fermatslibrary. Theory. Supported by a graphic, the theory proves that one 18 inch pizza is Published:1/10/2019 6:35:25 PM
[Science] Up to $818 million deal between J&J and Locus Biosciences points to a new path for CRISPR therapies The up to $818 million deal between Locus Biosciences and Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a division of Johnson & Johnson) that was announced yesterday points toward a new path for CRISPR gene editing technologies and (potentially) the whole field of microbiome-targeted therapies. Based in Research Triangle Park, N.C., Locus is commercializing research initially developed by scientists at […] Published:1/4/2019 4:29:42 PM
[Science] SpaceX completes its last mission of 2018 with the launch of a military GPS satellite Today's launch is SpaceX's first-ever U.S. national security mission. Published:12/23/2018 3:17:51 PM
[Science] Listen to the soothing sounds of Martian wind collected by NASA’s InSight lander The InSight Mars lander accomplished a perfect landing last week on the Elysium Planitia region of the planet, where it is hard at work preparing to drill into the surface (and taking selfies, of course). But one "unplanned treat" is a recording of the wind rolling across the Martian plains — which you can listen to right here. Published:12/7/2018 4:51:38 PM
[Science] Spaceflight’s 64-satellite rideshare launch takes off tomorrow on a Falcon 9 Seattle-based launch coordinator Spaceflight is gearing up for its biggest operation yet: Smallsat Express, deploying a staggering 64 separate satellites from 34 different clients — all from a single Falcon 9 rocket. It’s quite an endeavor, but the company believes that this kind of jam-packed “space bus” is the best way to make satellite deployment […] Published:11/27/2018 12:50:44 PM
[Science] With no moving parts, this plane flies on the ionic wind Since planes were invented, they've flown using moving parts to push air around. Sure, there are gliders and dirigibles, which float more than fly, but powered flight is all about propellers (that's why they call them that). Today that changes, with the first-ever 'solid state' aircraft, flying with no moving parts at all by generating "ionic wind." Published:11/21/2018 6:38:30 PM
[Science] ‘Science’ Magazine Clams ‘No Scientific Foundation’ for Defining Gender by Birth

'Nature,' just disgraced itself by signing onto the left-wing PCism that there are 57 genders and not just, you know, the two defined by actual science.

[Science] Facebook simulates itself up a better, more gradual product launch When you're launching a new social media product, like an image-sharing app or niche network, common wisdom is to make it available to everyone as soon as it's ready. But simulations carried out by Facebook — and let's be honest, a few actual launches — suggest that may be a good way to kneecap your product from the start. Published:11/11/2018 1:34:22 PM
[Science] NASA’s prolific planet-hunter Kepler has finally earned its retirement After nine years of service, half a million stars surveyed, and thousands of planets discovered around those stars, NASA's astonishingly successful Kepler space telescope is finally taking a well-earned rest. Out of fuel but in a safe orbit, the spacecraft will drift through the solar system looking at nothing in particular as its immense trove of data continues to drive discoveries here on Earth.

[Science] New plans aim to deploy the first U.S. quantum network from Boston to Washington DC About 800 kilometers of unused fiber optic cable running down the U.S. eastern seaboard is set to become the first stateside quantum network. The aim is to get the quantum network up and running and accepting customers by the end of the year, making it the first time that quantum keys will be exchanged commercially […] Published:10/25/2018 9:10:40 AM
[Science] NASA plans ‘on schedule’ Soyuz launch despite failure of Russian rocket The high-profile failure of a normally reliable Soyuz rocket during a crewed mission to the International Space Station earlier this week spooked the space community in more ways than one, but NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said he expects to launch a new crew in December via Soyuz anyway.

[Science] Stephen Hawking’s final paper about black holes is now online Stephen Hawking passed away earlier this year at the age of 76, but his incredible intellect isn’t yet done contributing to the scientific community. The acclaimed physicist’s final paper is now online for anyone to read and it revisits some mysteries of the physical world that came to define his illustrious career. Titled “Black Hole […] Published:10/12/2018 7:47:58 PM
[Science] Nobel Prize goes to laser-wrangling physicists, including first woman to be honored in 55 years The 2018 Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to a trio of researchers whose work in lasers enabled all kinds of new experiments and treatments. Arthur Ashkin is the primary recipient, sharing the prize with Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland; notably, the latter is the first woman to receive the prize since 1963, and […] Published:10/2/2018 12:56:14 PM
[Science] Mars orbiter spots silent, dust-covered Opportunity rover as dust storm clears Mars rover Opportunity has been operating on the surface of the Red Planet since 2004, but a dust storm this summer may prove to be the mission's toughest challenges. The enormous storm caked Opportunity in dust and blocked out the sun, its source of energy — and there's no guarantee the batteries aren't dead for good. But now that the skies have cleared, we at least have our first look at the workhorse rover from orbit. Published:9/25/2018 7:09:54 PM
[Science] Japan’s Hayabusa 2 mission lands on the surface of a distant asteroid The coolest mission you haven't heard of just hit a major milestone: the Japanese Hayabusa 2 probe has reached its destination, the asteroid Ryugu, and just deployed a pair of landers to its surface. Soon it will touch down itself and bring back a sample of Ryugu back to Earth! Are you kidding me? That's amazing! Published:9/21/2018 6:16:27 PM

[Science] Science: The Cultural Politics of Gluten (Steven Hayward) And now for something completely different. . . Sometimes science can be positively hilarious, except when it sets up another screen for detecting bigotry and sexism. That’s the case for a brand new study just out from the National Institutes of Health entitled “Too picky for my taste? The effect of the gluten-free dietary restriction on impressions of romantic partners.” Summary: turns out that being gluten-free is just fine if Published:9/20/2018 4:23:20 PM

[Science] Political anonymity may help us see both sides of a divisive issue online Some topics are so politically charged that even to attempt a discussion online is to invite toxicity and rigid disagreement among participants. But a new study finds that exposure to the views of others, minus their political affiliation, could help us overcome our own biases. Published:9/3/2018 8:21:32 PM
