Scott Carpenter, a dynamic pioneer of modern exploration, has the unique distinction of being the first human ever to penetrate both inner and outer space, thereby acquiring the dual title, Astronaut/Aquanaut.
Before I did a quick Wiki lookup on the word aquanaut, I thought he was the first astronaut who knew how to swim. Apparently you need to dive deeper and longer to qualify for the distinction of being an aquanaut, just as you need to fly up a certain number of km's to be considered an astronaut.
On a side note, it appears that certain NASA web sites are still operational despite the US government shutdown of non-essential facilities.
It sounds like you're a cunt and have no idea how to help people.
You, sir, should be modded funny.
if the water drinking in unsafe there is a chance the subsequent breast milk could also not be.
I don't think that's the way nature works. Having developed immunities, the mother is presumably more resistant to the bacteria and other stuff in the water that would be toxic to a new-born baby. This is besides the natural filtration that happens inside the mother's bodies before the tap water turns into milk. So, as long as the mother cleans her teat, her breast milk should be safer and less expensive than infant formula + Third World tap water. (Boiled or bottled water is not always an option.)
Of course... Android is a better learning tool, and an iOS device such as a iPhone or iPad should not be the first one you get or your first choice: if you might be an engineering type and want to learn about, tinker with the technology, or see how it works.
Still halfway to reading the article, but I did a quick browser search. There are several instances of "ipad" in the article but no mention of the terms "Android" or even just "tablet". Why does Apple have such a lock on the educational system that it's effectively created a duopoly with Microsoft? Macs and now iPads for the rich or talented kids, Windows PCs for everybody else.
Inventors Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla are famous for being at opposite camps in the famous AC-DC war, with Edison's former apprentice emerging the big winner. Now I'm beginnning to think Edison's vision for small neighborhood generators may have greater merit than the power monopolies made possible by the longer range of AC power. Maybe it's time for a DC revolution, or a counter-revolution for increased power efficiency around the home.
What do you recommend as a general DC power solution, not just for our gadgets and desktop, but for the entire home? Solar-powered USB chargers are one thing, but is there actually an off-the-shelf (or off-the-Net) solution for power vampires like vacuum cleaners and air conditioners?"
Is this the site for cows to learn differential equations?
For example, if a synthetic skin is studded with pressure and heat sensors, it could be used as a lifelike covering for prosthetic limbs.
If we laminated the whole person, or at least the whole body short of the facial orifices, this might make for an ultra-thin space suit. The suit would be a mechanical counter-pressure suit that uses the suit fabric itself rather than a balloon-like cushion of air to compress the body in the vacuum of space. While whole body electronics isn't necessary for such a suit, it would make it more efficient by allowing for subtle variations in pressure, elasticity, or rigidness across the surface of the suit.
