You mean average people protesting nuclear plants, research reactors, throwing nimbyism all over the place, which led to the shudder-cocking of nuclear development for 25 years? Well I guess that's the nuclear and fossil power industry then.
There's as much fact in there as there was 70 years ago when people said artificial hearts would never happen, transplants would never work, and building a building over 80 stories would cause it to collapse.
So really the only person that seems to know shit about anything is you.
You must be pretty young, or skipped history class. You missed the moaning and whining after 3 mile I take it. Hitting up your local libraries newspaper archives would help.
Acutely summed up in this quote from the Crichton lecture:
In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period.
He was 17, she was 15 when the sex occurred. He didn't rape her. She regretted it afterwards, and either cried rape or was forced to cry rape by her parents.
If all the upperclassmen that had sex with underclassmen at my former high school were jailed, probably a third of the school would be behind bars. This is fucking ridiculous.
Yeah, but did the upperclassmen in your school use *computers* to lure those innocent little underclasswomen into their lairs? Yeah, didn't think so. So, as you can see, it's *totally* different!
To answer your question, smaller habitat, no experiment at maintaining atmospheric composition, outside excursions in "space suits" etc. Its not very much like Biosphere II.
As for why not under the sea or Antarctica I can give at least three reasons. (1) cost of building, transporting and maintaining the habitat; (2) all the support and research personnel live in Hawaii, above water; (3) the research objectives don't require putting the experiment in a dangerous or inaccessible place.
Now someday when we have an actual habitat design along with all the actual support systems we plan to send to Mars, a trial on top of a super high mountain would make sense as a kind of Mars analog. But we don't have such stuff to test so we don't need the Mars analog with all the expense and complication.
Not everyone in Saudi Arabia are bedouin; in particular the ruling House of Saud is descended from town dwelling Arabs.
I'll go out on a limb and guess that not everyone in Saudi Arabia is worthless. Even people involved in managing their oil. And as for the elite they don't seem to be worse than anyone else who's inherited oil-based wealth; they've managed that for the long term benefit of themselves and their families. If they're ostentatious with their wealth, well they have a lot of it and it hasn't bankrupted them yet.
So there's no rational reason to want to destroy Saudi Arabia. But there's every reason not to want to be so dependent upon them.
Jesus dude. Dropbox controls the in and the out of the pipe. So their client can compress further on upload and decompress when downloading/streaming. I don't understand how a simple business case can be so confusing for people.
There is nothing confusing here. And yet you've managed to be completely confused.
May I interest you in a tall glass of perspective?
Would have been true, if not for the environmentalist anti-nuke nuts.
I think it depends. If the show's well put together, smartly written and performed by actors people enjoy watching, it could be successful. If it depends entirely upon recycling material from the movies, it'll definitely fail.
There used to be a web page called "Your Eyes Suck at Blue". You might find it on the Wayback machine.
You can tell the luminance of each individual channel more precisely than you can perceive differences in mixed color. This is due to the difference between rod and cone cells. Your perception of the color gamut is, sorry, imprecise. I'm sure that you really can't discriminate 256 bits of blue in the presence of other, varying, colors.
