Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe. Never heard of her? Then you need to check out her first adventure. Free.

Ruby is great fun, and full-cast radio theatre at it's best. Ruby and I go way back, back to when NPR broadcast radio theatre in the mid '80s.

More good news on the Mach Effect reaction-mass-less drives. A good quote from Dr. Fearn: "[I'm] ninety-nine percent convinced."

Tweet Nextbigfuture has been covering the work of independent researchers who are working to enable the Mach Effect to be used for propellentless space propulsion and potential as a means to create wormholes. James Woodward is the primary researcher and theorist in this area.

It's one thing to force Clippy onto MS Word users, it's quite another to arm Clippy and put him in charge of office security.

The notion of dark energy as an explanation for the accelerating expansion of the universe has always bothered me. It feels like it was something conjured up to explain the data. (Sometimes we just misinterpret the data.)

Or, to quote Edward Kipreos: "The accelerated expansion of the universe has been attributed to the effects of dark energy. However, there is no understanding of what dark energy is or why it has manifested only recently."

The alternative interpretation of the data, to put it in simple terms, is that relative to now, time in the past passed more quickly.

#darkenergy #cosmology #time  
Dark energy is an unknown form of energy that is proposed to drive the accelerated expansion of the universe. A new study by University of Georgia professor Edward Kipreos suggests that changes in how people think about time ...

We just reflexively want to assume that "the present is the key to the past."  It is very difficulty to consider a different line of thinking.

I felt a compelling need to write this rant review of Ancillary Justice. No spoilers included.

Note the Dunning-Kruger Effect reference in the third paragraph (that is, the knowledgeable in a subject are more likely to inflate their knowledge level).

In my ongoing "tropes are genre" and "genre is tropes" and you need them to tell stories awareness campaign, I point at this article by Jay Lake and Ruth Nestvold and say, "Yeah, that." (With a tip of the hat to Delany's "Reading Protocols")
