How about a stiff import tariff / carbon tax on all the junk imported from China?????
For your own safety, of course....
Isn't it designed to look for Methane in Mars' atmosphere? And didn't the MSL rover (Curiousity) determine that there is no detectable methane in the air, at least at Gale, right?
So DropBox, that's a way to differentiate yourself...hint hint...something that we all want...and will never get.
Actually the real scandal is not using the money for a Europa probe.
Not the manned pork in things like SLS and the ISS.
Definitely pork. The real science is the unmanned missions out of JPL/CalTech while the pork is with the SLS, ISS and the ridiculous asteroid capture mission.
The SLS was built to funnel money to well-connected districts, not for any mission needs....
There are management problems at NASA (i.e. too oriented toward manned spaceflight), but not at JPL that built and runs the rover. I just love you hindsight jocks with zero engineering knowledge of the project.
To all you idiots who think you could have done do a better job, read Emily's article. There were serious weight constraints for the wheels that effected everything from EDL to operations. Any huge engineering project is full of tradeoffs. Hindsight is 20/20.
Only someone with no brain would post that.
C++ has always been a steaming pile of hacks build on top of an insecure, unsafe language that was glorified assembler. No amount of new hacks on top of the old hacks will ever fix this software disaster. It created one software disaster after another such as Netscape 6.
So why are they unnamed? Makes me think it was China...
Nope. Not even close. Trees are slow growing and decay back to CO2. Better to grow fast-growing crops like corn or grass and burn to form long-lasting charcoal. Better yet, much better, move everyone to solar power.
Did you dive your car under a beer truck in the snow? Sue. Was your flight cancelled because of the weather? Sue. Did it rain on your picnic? Sue. The possibilities are endless.
