Re: Comets can’t explain weird ‘alien megastructure’ star after all

You don't really want to make anything on that scale rigid. It's not anyway, at least when you look at the scale involved. Despite its thickness, when you look at the ratios it's rather thin and narrow. Nothing on any scale is "rigid". The universe is made of rubber. Of varying degrees of...

Re: Diamond Is A Semiconductors Best Friend

The descriptions in the article remind me of some of the descriptions Johan Prinn (am I remembering his name correctly?) gave for the work he was doing. Johan is in the comments here: https://phys.org/news/2014-02-team-limits-famous-quantum-principle.html It is about why the Copenhagen Interpretati...

Wave Particle Duality = Uncertainty

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/12/141219085153.htm Wave-particle duality and uncertainty have been fundamental concepts in quantum physics since the early 1900s. "We were guided by a gut feeling, and only a gut feeling, that there should be a connection," says Coles, who is no...

Re: Elon Musk Is In Bed With Crooks

Cost of solar will be at an economical advantage in ten years due to dropping cost and the better battery systems emerging on to the market as well as the traditional electric generation cost doubling in 15 years.. The problem with solar is that it is intermittent. To be economical from 4 hours a d...

Re: Regrowing telomeres

Indeed, shortening telomeres are but one of several elements of cellular aging. Unless other factors are also accounted for increased cancer seems a risk. Endocannabinoids naturally scavenge cancerous cells. It is too bad that research on that in America is stymied by our laws. Maybe Congress will ...

No, because it's already true there are locations where the cheapest way to have power is solar/battery/inverter systems. Are you seriously arguing to the contrary?


The only way it is cheapest currently is if there is no grid tie economically convenient. In that case yes.
