Re: 2014 only the hottest year on the cooked books...

From that article.

"We’re not talking fractions of a degree, here. The adjustments amount to a whopping 3.1 degrees F. This takes us well beyond the regions of error margins or innocent mistakes and deep into the realm of fiction and political propaganda."

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

My understanding is that all the FBI has to do is accuse someone, and when they attempt to defend themselves they charge them with obstruction of justice for it.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

A few days ago I watched CNN's Anderson Cooper interviewing a college professor. The professor was on suspension and getting hate mail because he called for a white genocide. Cooper was taking the sympathetic position that his ideas were reasonable, rational, worthy of consideration, and the man was...

Re: SpaceX News

Maybe flying a car off to Mars is just a cover story, and it's actually related to the Zuma Sat.

Re: SpaceX News

When aliens from other galaxies stumble on to it, they might get a little confused, or if they do get it, they'll think humans were nuts.

Re: Unusual Looking Space Rock

Or it tumbles to maintain gravity inside. I read somewhere it's flyby of our sun will put it on a direct route to a nearby star. If you were an alien civilization and started picking up radio traffic from earth, you might want to investigate, and protect yourselves from discovery at the same time. W...

Re: EMC2 news

I think I saw one publication that said the spindle cusp configuration of Lockheed's machine would produce 1/100th the output of the polywell cube configuration.

Re: EMC2 news

There's also WB7, I was thinking some lab like maybe Lockheed Martin Skunkworks. Always possibly they've got a little scratch they'd be willing to part with on loan. EMC2 still has the patent, it could be like when Microsoft wrote code for Apple.

Re: EMC2 news

I was thinking they could lend WB8 to a company or university lab doing research on Spheromaks or FRC, since a polywell needs a plasma injection at initial startup to form the wiffleball. That way EMC2 wouldn't need to spend it's own money on the project, maybe even get paid for the use of WB8 inste...

Re: EMC2 news

I have a question, EMC2 probably still has WB8 in working order, what if they could get a plasma injector for it like they did with the little WB-X machine. Maybe team up with Focus Fusion or another company playing with Spheromaks, might be a good way to test scaling up on a low budget.
