Unfortunately, if I understand correctly, most of the publicised password breaches aren't due to intercepting the password in flight; they are due to successfully finding plaintext that matches the salted hash in the stolen database.
But still that's an interesting idea for protection against intercepting passwords in flight or recovered from RAM later.
Not only are passwords in plaintext in-flight behind a TLS terminator, typically on the LAN or virtual LAN or unix socket going to authentication services, but they also linger in kernel, router and middleware memory long after they have been transported around. Good security software knows to erase its own memory of sensitive data after use, but in between the TLS-terminating load balancer or web server (NginX, Apache etc) and back-end application processing of security URLs, usually there are a great many subsystems that transport the data of HTTP requests in plaintext, and don't have special provisions to erase their memory of them. So they linger in RAM afterwards until randomly overwritten. This can be made more secure than it usually is, but it's quite advanced.
but what are the chances of finding a good vintage of scotch to go with all of this breaded goodness they are going to be having up there?
Alcohol is definitely going to space. Ballantine's zero-gravity glass is made in cooperation with something called the Open Space Agency, which also has a design for an automated Dobsonian telescope. Ardbeg is going to space. And a vacuum still is an old science-fiction trope.
I was curious if they were bringing a significant enough quantity of eggs to support this breading program. Breading isn't any good without a binder.
This Official NASA Research is studying the egg problem.
There is also a proposal to import green cheese from the Moon.
Out of several tens of billions of humans, only a fraction have not yet died, and of those who died, only a small percent of disputed cases indicate recovery.
On the contrary, I have never died before and rumors that I would do so are spread by fact-checkers of the liberal press and corrupt global warming scientists.
I like the part in the SpaceX video where the rocket lands, and the door opens on magnificent desolation. This is artistic license. Obviously the material for a habitat would precede the arrival of people.
But yes, a first-try planetary colony won't necessarily work. Getting there is dangerous, and once you're there being able to continue to provide the population with air, water, food, shelter, and energy is going to have significant risks of lethal failures.
They probably have a breading program, might be worth risking death for...
Yes. Being able to make large quantities of nutritious, flavorful bread is essential to Mars colonization.
We have perfectly good helicopters today, but you don't want one on your street. Just a few basic physical problems that won't be solved without antigravity.
Just as soon as the Moller Skycar is ready. It'll be real soon now, right? He's only been working on it for about 50 years.
C for yourself.
