The next Hitler will have nuclear weapons.
 
a decent article. 
It seems we’re entering another of those stupid seasons humans impose on themselves at fairly regular intervals. I am sketching out here…

'Independent space nation' seems to be an oxymoron. :-))

It is accepted artists, not aliens, are responsible for the mysterious patterns, but how they are created remains a mystery.

Religion evolved because to have hope where there is none is still an advantage.

This new steel treatment is starting to make waves in the automotive industry. Radically cheaper, quicker and less energy-intensive to produce, Flash Bainite is stronger than titanium by weight, and ductile enough to be pressed into shape while cold without thinning or cracking.

Sounds great.  I'd imagine lighter car bodies will give electric vehicles a nice range extension too.  Could be something Tesla might look at perhaps?

Catherine Braiding is raising funds for #TeamMopra - Save the Mopra Telescope & Map the Milky Way on Kickstarter! Come and join us on a voyage of interstellar exploration as we chart the least known part of the Milky Way – its Delta Quadrant.

Note that while the kickstarter campaign claims that "Mopra is the only telescope capable of obtaining this new view of the Galaxy" the following news article states that "According to CSIRO, existing Mopra research can be undertaken at facilities such as the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array (ALMA) telescope in Chile, which operates in similar wavelengths." Personally I don't know the truth of the matter, but regardless it would be a shame to lose this facility.
