"We're not trying to create paranoia or anxiety, but I do think our findings are alarming. It's not every day that you conduct a study where the results are this strong."

“We have a Raspberry Pi in space. It was one part engineering, and nine parts paperwork. When the paperwork weighs more than the payload you’re ready for flight.”
The first results from the two Raspberry Pi boards now on board the International Space Station are starting to arrive on the ground.

Even human brains are a limited resource.

"A number of years ago, a team of research scientists tried to improve the design of a certain kind of computer circuit. They created a simple task that the circuit needed to solve and then tried to evolve a potential solution. After many generations, the team eventually found a successful circuit design. But here’s the interesting part: there were parts of it that were disconnected from the main part of the circuit, but were essential for its function. Essentially, the evolutionary program took advantage of weird physical and electromagnetic phenomena that no engineer would ever think of using in order to make the circuit complete its task."

Human ingenuity has created a world that the mind cannot master. Have we finally reached our limits?
