Celestia and Luna's Private Prison, Tartaros "Hellooooo theeeeeere," an unknown voice called from somewhere far off, stunning everyone. "I can hear you. Why don't you come closer?" The voice was slightly high-pitched and rough, like that of an old man, and there was an amused ca...

And now we as a species are wandering a dark and cluttered room with nothing but a dinky little laser pointer, after our nice little flashlight burned its bulb out. How 'bout some nice IR goggles? Would you believe an IR monocle ? It was funded about a year ago, with launch expected in 2025. That's...

Still is. Or do you imagine Musk is sending NASA astronauts to ISS for free? And, um, you are aware that all of NASA's boosters were built by private companies, and most were designed by them as well? And that private companies have been flying private payloads on said privately built boosters for ...

Of all the "military-industrial complex" stuff the US spends money on, why would you object to space programs? You know why they built GPS, don't you? I do object to the military industrial complex, and while the state would ideally be producing all its own parts at least it's the one sen...

Allowing Arecibo to collapse while continuing to lavish funds on pipe dreams like manned missions to Mars and boondoggles like the ISS is a crime against science. Nice catch. ;) But NASA isn't spending any money on manned Mars shots, only Musk is. And in any case, the relationship between US space ...

Aside from that, (and while I don't have a source on this yet, if one exists), I've been told they've cordoned off the section of jungle surrounding the observatory because workers didn't have an opportunity to collect potentially toxic substances inside the platform's machinery before it collapsed...

I was completely distracted by this part. “We fly pretty low for these surveys so we can identify the gender of the sheep, Maybe I don't know much about sheep, in fact I'm certain that's the case, but the notion of flying low enough that you can tell what gender a sheep is sounds... well, LOW.

As I understand it, the receiver "cab" -- the movable part on cables -- isn't nearly large enough for adding transmitters, and the cables and supporting stuff isn't strong enough to bear a transmitter's weight. There's also the point either Wakipedia or another site I looked at raised: Ar...

There are forces in this world that are stricken with the most unimaginable pain for their choices. They hate all things good, all things right, and all things sacred.

The greater tragedy of Arecibo is that it's still well within it's useful lifespan, but that there is no way without essentially rebuilding the whole thing to keep it operational. The Chinese have built one just kinda like it, but bigger. See Wakipedia . Significantly, Arecibo had a powerful transm...
