holy crap
I knew the Falcon 9 was 70 meters tall, but this photo really shows the scale
I like this pic of a SpaceX rocket with people next to it because it's hard to get a sense of scale in landing vids. Embedded image. 2:37 PM - 19 Aug 2016. 54 Retweets67 Likes. Reply to @hypercubexl. Replies. Marcus Conge. 3h3 hours ago. Marcus Conge @RockingThePixel. @hypercubexl Yeah it is!

In case you missed it, we tested one of the engines that will power the rocket carrying humans to deep-space destinations, and eventually Mars. The 7.5-minute test conducted at our Stennis Space Center is part of a series of tests designed to put the upgraded former space shuttle engines through the rigorous temperature and pressure conditions they will experience during a launch. Watch the test here: https://youtu.be/bJgsdnpjyes #NASAMarsDay

The rats are becoming nervous. They're all beginning the course of trying to save their own asses by playing that same old game of playing voters like a fiddle, to get their butts re-elected, again. This election really is important, more than most. This will become a great marker for measuring the stupidity and level of gullible in this country.

Elon Musk and JB Straubel talked about the ramp up to production of the Model 3 and solar energy at the Gigafactory on Tuesday. Read what they had to say.

How gravitational waves went from a whisper to a shout
- Had LIGO just confirmed a 100-year-old prediction made by Einstein? Had they discovered the first black hole binary? Had they opened a new era of astrophysics? With the stakes so high, the collaborators wanted to keep their results secret while they determined if the results were real. It was unfortunate that some onlookers chose to publicize vague rumors when the internal vetting had just begun - written by Robert Garisto

- image source: #Nasa : What are Gravitational waves? Gravitational waves are disturbances in space-time, the very fabric of the universe, that travel at the speed of light. The waves are emitted by any mass that is changing speed or direction. The simplest example is a binary system, where a pair of stars or compact objects (like black holes) orbit their common center of mass. http://nasa.tumblr.com/post/139124558019/what-are-gravitational-waves

New lithium air battery developed at MIT is poised to reach 4 times the energy density of current electric car lithium ion batteries, enabling ranges of 600-800 miles to become common (we already have many 150-200 mile range cars) - making gasoline cars obsolete :)

Electric cars are quieter, produce no cancer-Alzheimer-asthma-lowIQ- causing smog (► see the deadly oil car smog effects at ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/iHVLnhG5vEs), require no oil change, have 40% less parts, are far easier to maintain, electricity is 3-6 times cheaper than gasoline, free fuel is offered by Nissan and Ford first 2 years, solar panels can mean free fuel too, all these factors will shift the market to 100% electric also not just the cheaper car price, especially as 400 miles (644 km) range cars will become the norm in 5 years. Bolt has already 200 miles range and will be released in a few months, BYD E-6 already has a range of 240 miles (had 190 for years) just like Tesla Model 3 will have 215 mile range and Model S had 200 mile range for years.

The future is electric. :)

Austria is thinking about banning gasoline and diesel cars in 2020https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/i3h5LMojLi1.

A few German politicians started talking about banning oil cars in 2025.https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/EPxdxyHkrtL :)

Norway already has a tentative plan to ban oil cars in 2025. 29% of new cars sold in Norway are electric these dayshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/DNpT9MaiVYj.

See why (eco+public health+etc reasons) i installed solar panels equivalent to planting 322 treeshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/FHtw2ri5Dq8 and why i drive an electric car equivalent to planting 382 trees (if the oil car would be refilled weekly) ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/TQboBAji7uo.
If your panels produce more electricity than you use, you get free charging for your car too, like me. :)
New chemistry could overcome key drawbacks of lithium-air batteries.
