So, what would it take to intercept 1I/’Oumuamua, our first detected interstellar visitor and others in the future? "Now that we have determined that the object now known as 1I/’Oumuamua is indeed interstellar in origin, is there any way we could launch a mission to study it? The study below, written by key players in the Initiative for Interstellar Studies (i4is), examines the possibilities. Andreas Hein is Executive as well as Technical Director of i4is, while Nikolas Perakis, a graduate student at the Technical University of Munich, serves as Deputy Technical director. Kelvin Long is president and co-founder of i4is; Adam Crowl, a familiar figure to Centauri Dreams readers, is active in its technical programs. Physicist and radio astronomer Marshall Eubanks is the founder of Asteroid Initiatives; systems engineer Robert Kennedy is president of i4is-US and general chair of the Asilomar Microcomputer Workshop. Propulsion scientist Richard Osborne serves as i4is Director of Technology & Strategic Foresight. Their plan for 1I/’Oumuamua follows. For a more in-depth look, view the paper just released on arXiv at https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.03155 ."

Geek Question of the Day: Since today is Thanksgiving, I was thinking about all the family reunions that happen this time of year and it occurred to me it would be fun to ask you all; *What fictional family reunion do you think would be the most interesting (or awkward) to witness and why?* Any source works for this one so dig as deeply and obscurely as you like. Also I'll leave the definition of family up to you...=) #gqotd

Elon Musk promises a 620 miles range Tesla Roadster, with 200 kwh battery (the normal Nissan Leaf got 24 kwh) :)

See why (eco🌎+public health🌈+☮etc reasons) i installed ☀️ solar panels equivalent to planting 322 treeshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/fRXCoB36DdD and why i drive an electric car equivalent to planting 382 trees (if the oil car would be refilled weekly) ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/HN9dbDavUzz. If your panels produce more electricity than you use, you get free charging for your car too, like me. 💜😊💜

Chandratal crepesculars

Spiti, Himachal, India

The sun was moving fast towards the horizon as I was approaching the Chandratal lake campsite, and I was fearing I would not make it in time as the language barrier between me and my driver made it impossible to clarify whether the camp site was by the lake or not.

When we arrived at the very end of the road I got my answer – no lake in sight! I was still unable to get any idea as to the distance to the lake and just had to walk as fast as I could on the trail. When I finally got the view of the lake I quickly realized I would not have a chance to get a capture of the lake and the sunset before dark, and instead had to find a suitable location just west of it.

As the beautiful crepuscular rays became more and more prominent I knew they would diminish very soon and I set up gear here on this flat area as a contrast to the snow capped mountains and the dramatic ridge just ahead. It is a rather unusual looking location with a redness to it that made me think of Mars

I wish I had more time here, but at least I got some beautiful sun rays.

5 Cybersecurity And Privacy Cases To Watch
By Allison Grande, Law 360,
FYI Partial excerpt from the FIRST of THREE linked in news articles, follows :>
Supreme Court Takes On Location Privacy

The Supreme Court in early June agreed to review the Sixth Circuit's 2016 decision in Carpenter v. U.S., which held that a phone's cell-site location information counts as a routinely collected business record that the government can gather without a warrant as long as the data reveals nothing about the actual content of cellphone communications https://www.law360.com/articles/936384/5-cybersecurity-and-privacy-cases-to-watch

Pictures taken in San Diego,California The Santa Maria Old Unique Ship,USA Submarine,And Many Artistic Statues And Attractions. These pictures also include The area that's very popular for Para Gliders and Hang Gliders due to the airdraft. It's said there has been very few if any injuries from this sport or attraction but you got to admit you would be a little hesitant. The cliffs near by are unstable but look awesome of course people ignore the signs and just stand and take pics. I only mention this due to the fact it might just save your tail. This video is 01:42 long.

As you can see it was a beautiful day as usual in Sunny San Diego,California. Also there is a picture included of the prices of Gliders And Gliding in general. I was a little hesitant to do that but some are thrill seekers. It's actually pretty cool to watch. Thanks for watching and liking,Subscribing,or Sharing. Thank You so much in advance.

There are no guarantees when it comes to cancer recovery. But doctors have greater success finding and treating some types of the disease than others. Some are slowly starting to use another "C" word for cancer: "cure."

Here are five cancers where there's stronger hope for recovery.
