You gain 100% flexibility in orbital plain. No launch restrictions because your launch point is completely flexible. This is a common feature with SeaLaunch. It would actually be very cool if SpaceX used a similar mobile launch platform for Falcon 9 as an additional facility. Certainly, reliability would likely be much better than Zenit.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Somebody with presidential ambitions would be good to become educated
Mary Boas' Mathematical Physics book is pretty good, and the second edition was in publication forever.
Why not have this without the other baggage?
Better to have a neutral way of process dependencies being defined, then have tools automatically translate into the configuration of your favourite init system. Alternately, sell upstream developers on the merit of a standardized init system conf file format and get them to adopt it.
But this isn't the problem. The problem is that un-forked udev is only shipped in tandem with systemd. ConsoleKit is deprecated and replaced with logind, which is only shipped with systemd.
It's like MS bundling newer versions of DirectX only with their latest flavour of Windows, although perhaps not for the same reasons. Same tactics, though.
Isn't it enough to teach people how to properly perform unit conversions (then show them the cell phone app)?
Within the context of science education, it is a much easier to focus on understanding the mathematical relationships which underpin theory using metric. Use of customary units (US or UK) will result in more students falling back on the use of memorized magic numbers and not proper derived constants. Understanding concepts of scale in science becomes an order more difficult as well.
For this reason, metric units (mks or sometimes cgs) units are by far dominant in scientific papers and texts. Imperial has some presence in engineering, possibly due to a more narrow focus and more resistance to change.
Nope. Plasma physics was very young, and nobody had truly studied plasma turbulence.
It's easier to use section breaks, for a variety of reasons. Of course, that's like saying it's easier to knife off your testicles with a scalpel rather than an axe.
Compared to malice or corruption, I think sufficiently dangerous incompetence is equally undesirable. Bad results and bad methods are bad.

Atom chips with their completely open PowerVR graphics chips?
The input energy for the heat engine is less than the total amount of energy transported. In an example of a heat pump acting as a chiller, there is significant waste heat which must be dumped into a heat sink.Total energy transported is more than the input energy, but overall energy is conserved.
1) Supercomputers are populated with x86 heritage CPUs because they're cheap.
2) The most power efficient supercomputers are made with IBM PowerPC SoCs.
3) ARM is coming to the data center with their new 64 bit variant.
Webkit had to be contributed to comply with the licensing of KHTML.
My Palm OS device preferred stylus, but could work (badly) with finger touch as well. Resistive touch screens.
