Is that a spelling error or not? As 'effect' is quite accurate in this case...
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).
If they think he's carrying around a simple solution to breaking AES256 in a timely manner maybe they did fail the minesweeper cert after all..
This has been done already, check out the (slightly environmentally unfriendly) Project Pluto.
This can consist of a DA saying, "This guy possesses child porn. Here are some pictures exactly like the ones that we suspect are on his hard drive." Jury sees those, convicts.
DA then arrested for possession and distribution of CP?....
Back when this this was made?
Except it can't be *UTC* anything as UTC wouldn't exist..
of Orbital Mechanics. Physics, too... when convenient.
- Let's start with the mass of this asteroid, so we can determine the VAST amount of energy it will take to "nudge it." Recall that the 365-foot Saturn V pushed a capsule the size of a VW Bug.
Simple, park a few solar powered ion thrusters on the asteroid, turn them on in the required direction(s) and leave them going for for however long it takes to adjust the orbit enough....
We could send it to mars, attach a VASIMIR Ion Thruster which pushes at about ~5000 mN against the 420,000kg mass of the ISS at an acceleration of about 1.1 * 10^-5 m/s^2. Might take about 16 years to get the delta V to get to low Mars orbit, but it will do it eventually...
Ok I spoke to quickly, it just kills the visibility of the katamari, you can still play and everything thats stuck to it is still visible (until shot as well)..
You can play both at once but it gets boring quickly when you kill the katamari with the asteroids spaceship gun and just have the music playing against a game of asteroids...
The article needs a minor correction, the diagram is labelled as showing the front of a monolith but it is clearly a rear view.
That't right folks. The only people who have fashioned a beverage container bomb is the TSA.
At least its slightly better than the game of catch up they've been playing of late, ie someone fails to blow up a plane with shoes then everyone has to take their shoes off etc etc..
I'm not sure that Google's data centres could qualify as a single super computer with each node solving a different part of the same problem...
World domination isn't a single problem?
