An end to six months of research
At roughly 12:30AM ET early on Friday morning, a soda machine-sized NASA spacecraft slammed into the dark side of the moon at 3,600 miles per hour. The impact was entirely planned by NASA engineers...

Our website has been redesigned

After some brilliant work by +Satyajit Sahoo and +ahmar siddiqui the Numix website now has a fantastic new look. 
It's simpler, easier to navigate and better looking.

Red Moon, Green Beam! | Astronomy Picture of The Day
This is not a scene from a sci-fi special effects movie. The green beam of light and red lunar disk are real enough, captured in the early morning hours of April 15, 2014. Of course, the reddened lunar disk is easy to explain as the image was taken during this week's total lunar eclipse. Immersed in shadow, the eclipsed Moon reflects the dimmed reddened light of all the sunsets and sunrises filtering around the edges of planet Earth, seen in silhouette from a lunar perspective. But the green beam of light really is a laser! 

Shot from the 3.5-meter telescope at Apache Point Observatory in southern New Mexico, the beam's path is revealed as Earth's atmosphere scatters some of the intense laser light. The laser's target is the Apollo 15 retroreflector, left on the Moon by the astronauts in 1971. By determining the light travel time delay of the returning laser pulse, the experimental team from UC San Diego is able to measure the Earth-Moon distance to millimeter precision and provide a test of General Relativity, Einstein's theory of gravity. 

Conducting the lunar laser ranging experiment during a total eclipse uses the Earth like a cosmic light switch. With direct sunlight blocked, the reflector's performance is improved over performance when illuminated by sunlight during a normal Full Moon, an effect fondly known as The Full Moon Curse.

para ejercer el pensamiento filosófico es necesario partir del presupuesto de que la filosofía no es pensamiento o sabiduría al servicio de otras disciplinas, sino más bien "amor a la sabiduría" donde la verdad no se "analiza y aplica", sino que se "cuestiona e interpreta".

Las redes sociales son peligrosas, un minúsculo malentendido discursivo puede ocasionar una bola de nieve de discusiones cual madeja de nudos que termina en discordia y molestia absurda.

El tema de súper habitabilidad no implica seres humanos. Y de hecho, en el caso de planetas de masa mayor, nos excluye en en esta actual forma y constitución, por obvias razones. Yo no estaba debatiendo si es o no posible que el ser humano viva en un planeta de radio mayor, por favor me subestimas demasiado, yo estaba apuntando el hecho de que NO ES EL CASO de ese planeta descubierto.

Surprise surprise. The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country's citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded.

After sifting through nearly 1,800 US policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile) and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the United States is dominated by its economic elite.

So far, is anyone surprised?  Yawn.  Only then one asks the next question… why is half of the voting public just fine with this?  Why do they let oligarch-controlled think tanks and oligarch-run mass media tell them to rage against every OTHER elite  -- science, teaching, journalism, medicine… etc. -- that might stand up to oligarchy on our behalf, but never, ever question oligarchy itself?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/10769041/The-US-is-an-oligarchy-study-concludes.html

In fact, there are reasons.  Similar to how plantation lords talked a million poor while southerners who had been victimized by that landed elite, to instead turn and fight and die for them.
Report by researchers from Princeton and Northwestern universities suggests that US political system serves special interest organisations, instead of voters
