How does The World's Simplest Electric Train work?
TL;DR
the train uses the magnetic field of a current to push magnets
Working
____________________________
The battery, the conducting-magnets and the portion-of-the-coil-between-magnets form a complete circuit. Current in this portion-of-coil makes the coil-portion act as if it is a bar-magnet with North-and-South poles. This “virtual bar magnet” repels the magnet in front and attracts the magnet behind. Once the assembly moves, a new portion of the copper coil becomes the magnet. So a dynamic situation is created.
____________________________
NOTE
1. The copper wire has to be bare without varnish insulation. 
2. The magnets are electrically conducting.
3. The two magnets on either end of the battery have their North poles pointing in opposite directions!{i.e. S-N-(Battery)-S-N}

Q:Do the magnets just served the purpose of levitation here?
No. There is no levitation.

Q:are the magnet and the coil in contact here?
Yes, They have to be in contact to complete the current path. The positive terminal of the battery gets connected to the magnet at that end, likewise the negative. The circuit is completed through the coil, which becomes an electro-magnet for that length.

Graphics in reverse: Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands

Researchers can demonstrate that on some standard computer-vision tasks, short programs -- less than 50 lines long -- written in a probabilistic programming language are competitive with conventional systems with thousands of lines of code.

Saturn's 'great white spots' linked to water | Science/AAAS | News

'... About once every Saturn year—29.5 of our years—a mysterious great white spot erupts in the planet's atmosphere that can outshine the planet’s brilliant rings. This image shows the last outbreak, which began as a spot in the north in late 2010 that then spread into a band bigger than Earth. Now, planetary scientists writing online today in Nature Geoscience propose that these periodic superstorms arise from water.

Moist convection in hydrogen atmospheres and the frequency of Saturn[rsquor]s giant storms : Nature Geoscience : Nature Publishing Group

'Abstract

A giant storm erupted on Saturn in December 2010. It produced intense lightning and cloud disturbances and encircled the planet in six months. Six giant storms—also called Great White Spots—have been observed on Saturn since 1876, recurring every 20 to 30 years and alternating between mid-latitudes and the equator. Here we use thermodynamic arguments to demonstrate that the quasi-periodic occurrence of Saturn’s giant storms can be explained by a water-loading mechanism, in which moist convection is suppressed for decades owing to the relatively large molecular weight of water in a hydrogen–helium atmosphere. We find that the interaction between moist convection and radiative cooling in the troposphere above the cloud base produces an oscillation that leads to giant storm generation with a period of approximately 60 years for either mid-latitudes or the equator, provided the mixing ratio of water vapour in the troposphere exceeds 1.0%. We use a two-dimensional axisymmetric dynamic model and a top-cooling convective adjustment scheme to apply our conceptual model to Saturn. For a water vapour mixing ratio of 1.1%, simulated storms show a recurrence interval, ammonia depletion and tropospheric warming that are consistent with 2010 observations. Jupiter’s atmosphere is more depleted in water than Saturn, which may explain its lack of planet-encircling storms.'

For almost 200 years, Euler's conjecture reigned in mathematics unchecked. Then, a paper came out that turned the whole thing on its head... and it did it all in just two sentences.

The division between eukaryotic and prokaryotic life is one of the most profound in biology. Eukaryotic cells have a nucleus containing several elongated DNA-bearing chromosomes. This nucleus is surrounded by a membrane punctured by pores through which molecules can leave and enter. Beyond the nuclear membrane, in the part of the cell called its cytoplasm, is an array of specialised organelles such as mitochondria (which generate energy) and chloroplasts (which photosynthesise), and also further membranes, known as the endoplasmic reticulum, that carry out a range of tasks from making proteins to disposing of waste.

 Prokaryotes, by contrast, have no nucleus (their genes are carried on a circular DNA molecule without a surrounding membrane), no organelles and no endoplasmic reticulum. It was the shift to eukaryotism, sometime between two billion and one billion years ago, that opened the path to complex, multicellular life and thus, eventually, to human beings.
WHEN David Baum was an undergraduate at the University of Oxford, he pondered, as students are wont to in the small hours after the bar has closed, one of...

NASA approved the development of a Plasma Rocket that can reach Mars 5-7 times faster - just 39 days  :)

A former astronaut (and current CEO of the Ad Astra Rocket Company that NASA approved) explains in this 6 min video the things this rocket could do, including asteroid deflection ► https://youtu.be/KHXBe4NneHA. 
A new type of rocket that could send humans to Mars in less than six weeks instead of six months or longer may be one step closer to reality. NASA has selected Texas-based Ad Astra Rocket Company for a round of funding to help develop the Variabl...

Sometimes, I feel like it is my appointed job to sit on the futon, or even use it as the foundation for a replica of the Eiffel Tower.
Adults recall math as a sort of NCAA tournament. Everybody gets eliminated. It's only a question of how long you stay in the game.
