What's a good place to find information on how to work with LaPlace equations? I'm interested in spherical harmonics for a project I'm working on. As expected, Wikipedia is great for learning if you already know...

This is classic Innovators Dilemma style problems. Boeing is big and huge; powerful in their way. However, SpaceX comes along and can do the same thing that Boeing does, for less money and shorter turn around times. When the BFR shows up, there won't be any limits on the payloads to orbit.

Want to put 1000 micro satellites in orbit for a couple thousand dollars each? Order up one BFR launch. Done.

INTERREGNUM, n. The period during which a monarchical country is governed by a warm spot on the cushion of the throne. The experiment of letting the spot grow cold has commonly been attended by most unhappy results from the zeal of many worthy persons to make it warm again.

Just the way this is written makes me laugh.

Projects like this make me laugh because I think to myself, "Got a programming language that compiles to bytecode and nativecode?  Let's make it compile to Java bytecode.  Win!"

I'm curious to see what happens with this project.

I'm reading through Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass" and I came across this line that completely changed how I view Alice (and made me like her more.)

'Nurse! Do let's pretend that I'm a hungry hyaena, and you're a bone.' - Alice
