View from Above: From the International Space Station, Expedition 42 Commander Barry Wilmore took this photograph of the Great Lakes and central U.S. on Dec. 7, 2014, and posted it to social media.

This week on the station, the Expedition 42 crew has been busy with medical science and spacesuit work while preparing for the arrival of SpaceX's Dragon commercial cargo craft, scheduled to launch on Dec. 16 on a two day trip to the station before it is captured by the Canadarm2 and berthed to the Harmony node.

After all these years, it dawned on me that list comprehensions in python are just flat out awesome. Nay, Python is flat out awesome. The switch from 2.7 to 3 was also really good. I'm sorry you have to go back and revisit your code...boo hoo.

Ok, my goal is to create a prosthetic brain in my lifetime. Let's start with a few suggestions/answers from all the knowledgeable people in my feed. 

Reasonable (In my ignorant opinion) Questions to Ask:
1.  Is the brain's computing power known? Are there are any relative terms with which to ask this question?

2.  Cochlear implants exist....can we create electrical signals to the rest of the body?...Are electrical signals really this hard to emulate? Where does Materials Science come in?

3.  If we do create biocompatible materials, is the link between biological signals and artificial signals that easy?

The limitations are vast but we have to start somewhere. Signaling Cascades in the brain seem like a good starting point. Our body (life) in general has seem to have figured out how to do this through chemical collisions. The goal would be to figure out how to do this at least within the solar system without having the limitations of a human cellular syndicate. 

Ultimately, our brain is our biggest asset and recreating human innovation elsewhere may be the key to survive long term (Are we even known as a species at that point...?)

YOUR THOUGHTS ARE MUCH APPRECIATED

Affordable and fast service. Everywhere else I went to get my flat fixed it was minimum $100. Instead, I went here, got it done for $50 and 15 minutes later I was ready to go.

I needed my front wheel fixed since it was basically falling apart. They put in new parts, cleaned the sucker up and got it running like new all for less than 15 dollars and 1 hour time. The staff knows what they're doing and tell you exactly what repairs are needed and why.
