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).
The psychosocial implications of in-flight sex and reproduction are at least as problematic as the related physiological challenges. For the foreseeable future, space crews will be relatively small in number. If pairing off occurs within the crew, it can have serious ramifications on the crew's working relationships, and therefore, on mission success and crew operations.

If ASCII characters are used, the 256 bit key is calculated by applying the PBKDF2 key derivation function to the passphrase, using the SSID as the salt and 4096 iterations of HMAC-SHA1.
Slow by design.
Current technology can not capture wind energy in a way that is not harmful to the environment.
All energy production harms the environment, even hydroelectric energy production:
One study shows that a hydroelectric dam in the Amazon has 3.6 times larger greenhouse effect per kWh than electricity production from oil, due to large scale emission of methane from decaying organic material.
Tow the wind mills off shore. Bring down the production and maintenance costs. Scale up. Profit.
I don't think it looks half bad.
It looks rather bad in my Nokia e5-00 browser which until the recent changes displayed
For example, a battery electric vehicle which uses 40 KW/h of electricity per 100 miles would release more CO2 into the atmosphere than many small gasoline vehicles.
Gasoline production is very energy consuming. Please add that factor into your equation before you draw conclusions.
The tires are about the only wireless system. If they start designing remote disgnostics, then you can start worrying.
I worry already thank you. Cars are starting to become wireless and, consequently, vulnerable
