Re: ITER under attack

http://phys.org/news/2015-05-star-power-iter-nuclear-fusion.html At this point I certainly support pulling out. It has more than tripled in cost and we are paying for European jobs.

Re: NASA's 3D Printed Habitat Challenge

Personally, I think the whole notion of printing such large volumes misses the point of the real benefits to be had with additive manufacturing. NASA needs to stop treating 3D printing as a fad and think more seriously. Especially when you look at what an energy intense process sintering of any kind...

. . .the WOD probably caused the huge spike in the THC content of pot surely didn't prevent it. You must have finally realized your arguments have no weight, to be repeating these trite banalities over and over in complete disregard that they don't come to the issue, even were they true, which obvi...
