And really, what problem can't be solved by judicious application of barbecues, vodka or drones?

+Marvel Entertainment - the market is there. Get on it!
 
Thank you, Mark Ruffalo.
Mark Ruffalo doesn't get why Marvel isn't making more Black Widow merchandise.

People of Earth: this is why we were given The Hoff.

The less evidence we have for what we believe is certain, the more violently we defend beliefs against those who don't agree.

Eh, some underdogs are underdogs because they are made of fail. Don't cheer for them, guys.

International collaboration in space gives me hope that we'll someday learn to get along on Earth.

I'm trying (and failing) to keep from drooling over these images. I love when amazing utility is also beautiful.
Tonight Elon Musk finally unveiled Tesla Energy, the new battery initiative that is designed to handle power needs for homes, business, and even public utilities. The product that's aimed at the...

Huge range of applications. Great ideas here.
 
The Snowgoose is basically a small box with a propeller on the back; it can be carried around on the back of a Humvee, fly using either a parafoil or a top autogyro rotor, fly along a route entered using GPS or controlled by satellite, and drop off cargo either by landing or by pushing it out on small parachutes. Basically, it's a cheap, simple, deliver-stuff-to-tricky-areas machine.

This article talks mostly about how the military is using it, but its potential applications are much wider: think of its ability to deliver supplies in disaster relief situations (medical equipment to rural Nepal right now, for example!), or make ordinary deliveries to remote areas like the Alaskan bush.

Good engineering is simple, stupid, and effective -- not necessarily a recipe for making a "sexy" project that the Air Force senior command will love, but an excellent recipe for something actually useful.

In a scene right out of Call of Duty, your special forces unit is surrounded on a plateau deep in enemy territory and your ammo is running low. The area is hot with small arms fire, and even if a helicopter crew were to risk it, there are none available. Not to worry, a CQ-10 Snowgoose stuffed full of supplies is on the way.

Great idea, but if these things add more weight than a coat of paint, I don't see it happening.

This is the best answer to the Fermi Paradox that I've seen.
“SETI is essentially a search for technological waste products,” Schroeder has written. “Waste heat, waste light, waste electromagnetic signals—we merely have to posit that successful civilizations don’t produce such waste, and the failure of SETI is explained.”

The idea that successful civilizations would devour their galaxies in a never-ending cascade of consumption and production is a decidedly 1950's idea.
Maybe hyper-advanced civilizations don't cover their galaxies in Dyson spheres because they've learned a bit more about the universe than our best mid-20th century science fiction can speculate on.
#FermiParadox   #SETI  
The most far-seeing search ever performed for “Dyson spheres” and other artifacts of “astroengineering” comes up empty. Where is everybody?

Cool people doin' cool stuff. Check it out:
 
Hangout with Art is a MOOC (massive open online course) run by the Milwaukee Art Museum, in partnership with the Google Art Project, for people from around the world to get more comfortable looking at art and visiting museums. As part of the course, we offer a series of Google Hangouts on Air to highlight how people from many disciplines use art in their work. 

Phillip Naylor is Professor of History at Marquette University. He directed the Western Civilization program for nine years where he insisted that his graduate teaching assistants appreciate the manifold pedagogical besides historical value of art (including in-service sessions at the Milwaukee Art Museum). Art plays an important role in all his courses (Western Civilization, Middle East, North Africa, Byzantium, Modern Europe, and Rock and Roll). He is a member of Marquette's Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art Faculty Advisory Committee and the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees’ Committee for Education and Public Programs.

Jodi Eastberg is Associate Professor of History at Alverno College where she teaches world and women’s history with an emphasis on digital teaching and learning. Alverno’s abilities-based curriculum requires all students to demonstrate proficiency in eight abilities, including aesthetic engagement. Her classes are engaging active-learning spaces where art plays a central role in creating understanding of and meaning from the past. She serves as the President of the Milwaukee Art Museum’s American Arts Society and as a member of the Milwaukee Art Museum Board of Trustees’ Committee for Education and Public Programs.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jodi Eastberg. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
