I make a ratatouille that is to die for.
I think it's time to abolish time zones all together. In reality most of the world works off of UTC. Displaying different offset times only confuses things. Maybe it made sense in the 1800s but not anymore with the global economy.
It's the latest SI prefix.
So true. I was very surprised to learn that lithium batteries have an energy density in the same ballpark as gunpowder and dynamite. Small wonder that one of them cutting loose and letting all that power go at once is a big deal.
> A lithium-air battery has an energy density (per kilo) comparable to traditional gasoline
It's still got problems to overcome, but the point is, battery storage is only getting better.
If solar energy were dirt cheap but batteries were still for shit, then yeah, using H2 as a storage medium wouldn't be so bad. However, both PVCs and batteries are getting better all the time. The latest lithium-air batteries actually have the same energy density as gasoline. H2's density is still better of course, but has a host of storage problems that make even a lesser storage system more appealing.
On the pads, not phones. Too damned early on a Monday.
At least now the school knows not to include camera-enabled surveillance software on the phones.
Space suits in general and the SAS in particular are why I no longer give a rat's ass what happens to NASA. Cut their funding, Congress orders them to start launching their rockets upside-down, I couldn't care less. NASA had a working prototype of a replacement for those injurious, exhausting, and dangerous inflatable suits 40 goddamn years ago, and they flushed it down the toilet and haven't looked back since.
The future of the human race is in outer space, but NASA will have zero role in it. Giving them money would be no better than throwing it away.
Am I the only one who remembers seeing this sort of 3-d painting reproduction featured on Beyond 2000 a good 20 years ago? They made a rubber mold of the original painting, printed the copy either with special ink or onto a surface that could be flash melted to fit the mold.
Copyrights with a theoretical duration of nearly 2 centuries (max human lifespan plus 70 years) is kinda stretching the definition of the word "temporary".
