Robert Seagall of NPR did a report on the student loans' non-dischargability. The guy he interviews suggests that there is very limited evidence of students' intentionally running up student loan debt in preparation for bankruptcy -- it just doesn't happen.
Furthermore, it's unclear whether said screen grab was from the victim's own computer, or if someone else took the screen grab. (I don't use Facebook; can you see pokes on other people's accounts?)
No, you can't see pokes on other people's accounts. If you're taking a screenshot of pokes, it's positively your own pokes (assuming no HTML wizardry).
However, the logged-in user's name is also not visible once you've scrolled down to your pokes – it's at the top of the page, and the pokes are mid-way down the right-hand column. So it's quite likely that the screen-grab didn't contain any details which would positively prove that the victim actually took the screengrab.
1. Get restraining order
2. Ask mutual friend to poke the person you filed the restraining order against
3. They get poked back
5. Claim you took the screenshot, profit!
(Late response... oh well. Today's stories didn't look too interesting.)
No stated in this article.
But I'm pretty sure the engine discussed will need to be roughly 100x more powerful to make that 39 day trip a reality.
No, not really. Hauling the fuel for chemical rockets into orbit is expensive, so mostly they do hard burns to get the right speed and direction, then they coast most of the trip. VASIMR doesn't need the heavy fuel, as it is solar powered, so it provides constant thrust. Apparently days of constant acceleration makes a difference.
From the article:
A new NASA rocket engine, designed partly in Canada, raises the revolutionary possibility that a manned trip to Mars could take less than three months instead of two years.
It would take about 39 days to reach Mars, compared to six months by conventional rocket power.
In three paragraphs we go from 89 days to 39 days. So which is it? With that kind of difference, I'm not quite sure it would be any faster than conventional rockets.
It's been a while since I posted frequently enough for this to happen, but I'm pretty sure I just got a comment modded troll for the first time ever.
