the relativistic model is just a way to explain what is happening as far as we know. That doesn't mean that it's actual how nature operates or everything there is. It works because magnetic monopoles haven't been detected. But if new evidence is added, then we need to modify the theory, or get a new one.
You need to get it through your head that physics theories become theories when they can predict and model what we currently know about nature accurately. That doesn't mean that's all there is or that there aren't other acceptable theories.
>>8394506 What do you mean "see" the light that bounced off of the earth? To do that, Wed have to PUT our telescopes thousands of lightyears away from earth then then point them TO earth e.g. to see a dinosaur you can go 60 million light years away (instantaneously), point your telescope at earth, and you will see dinosaurs. To see before the time you leave the earth, you must travel at the speed of light or faster to your viewing destination
>>8394506 SEE THE LIGHT THAT BOUNCED OFF OF EARTH HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO SEE THE LIGHT BOUNCED OFF OF EARTH SEE BOUNCED OFF pure retardism, you can't see something that's bounced of off earth because the travel distance of light from the bounced from the earth is greater than the speed of light is after it bounced off. You can only see the past earth if the super telescope is pointed towards the earth between 10,000 to 10 light years away from the earth. I dunno what people in /sci/ are but... Comment too long.

Would it be possible to be successful in ChemE if I'm bad at math? I'm really good at Chemistry but I'm fairly awful at math. Is it a possibility or am I doomed to a non STEM degree. I'm willing to work hard to improve if that counts, by the way. Thanks
Some people claim that it was an evolutionary trait to attract women, but I feel like men's humor is probably more of a benefit to keeping the male members of a tribe together. Being able to make jokes and laugh with each other keeps spirits high, ultimately increasing their risk of survival in dangerous situations such as hunting vicious animals or going to war with other tribes.
Hey /sci/ I'm in 1st year undergrad of Geology and it looks like I'll need to do a term paper for my chemistry class. What are some interesting geology-related topics you think I could manage? Note that I'm not asking you o do my homework for me, I'd just like to hear some opinions.
Let's have a thread about this today. As we know, in DNA Replication the Helicase (which I believe is an enzyme) separates the double-helix of the DNA strand, and from there a complementary copy of the gene is created as mRNA. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, or elaborate further. In RNA Replication, there are two processes, Transcription and Translation. In both there are three steps, Translation happening after the former, Initiation, Elongation, and Termination. In Initiation, the RNA Polymerase binds to the Promoter, just under the TATA Cap.

>>8393849 Nothing at all, there's nothing. Nothing was invented in the 2000s that even helped anyone really.
Science has regressed, if anything, from excessive concern for rigor, academia becoming overly engrossed in theoretical again, and no good Engineers on the boards to help apply or direct the research going on in universities. And also lack of funding and forced admissions quotas caused a general depression in vision and progress in the scientific community. Everything in the 2000s nearly that was hailed as...

Thought I would offer up a new toy for you guys to play with: apply the Grothendieck construction to the functor from sets to categories obtained by composing a contravariant hom 2-functor (for some fixed category C) with the functor taking sets to their corresponding discrete categories. Objects in the entire category for the induced bundle are like sets, but rather than bags of structureless points, they are bags of objects living in C. A morphism is a function on the underlying set, but where each assignment f(x)=y is actually a morphism x—>y from C. Notice that we can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Will I get anywhere? Most mathematicians are dumb so I think I've got a great shot. I'm going to try to read all the related material and try to solve it mentally without writing anything down. Note that I only have up to Calculus 2 knowledge.
So this fucking CS autist walked by me today muttering something about the singularity. Some engineer probably stole his trash gf. He then started stuttering about how he's going to create a program that will do the job of engineers. Just laughed in his sad face as I waved my professional engineering licence at him. Why can't CS majors admit to themselves that they are nothing more than codemonkey servants who will never be considered real engineers? Even more sad is how they actually believe the baby set theory and combinatorics they studied puts them on the same level as mathematicians. "HURR muh Hamming code thus I know abstract algebra." Not that they even use any of that math to write their fizzbuzz scripts which is literally the only requirement you ever need to get a CS job. Seriously, they don't even know how to build the computers they use. Electrical and Chemical Engineers had to solve integrated circuit production because they too busy jerking off and playing tabletop Doom. They couldn't even develop their own abstract architecture which is why Von Neumann -another ChemE and mathematician- had to step up. Do we even fucking need CS majors when there are a million poo in loos that write the same crappy HTML bloat we hire them for? Furthermore it's the most beta profession and it's a proven fact that literally every CS major is a closet /mlp/ horsefucker. That's why they are too stupid to ever crack hard AI and we need to put mathematical researchers on it asap. Not that we could've expected much from them since they are busy jacking it to horse cartoons to even bother learning REAL control engineering and neural network optimization. I guess life is great when you can spam ML models like a monkey instead of THINKING because engineers built them computers too powerful for them to care enough to DO THEIR FUCKING JOBS RIGHT.
>>8393123 Holy shit, they gave Stoddart and Feringa a nobel prize. Both of them are incredibly based.
Yeah, you bet your ass it is. Well maybe, molecular machines are still floppy as fuck.
Stoddart's group proposed a way to build Feynman's nanoscale robotic arm for moving around individual atoms with near term synthetic chemistry: http://pubs.rsc.org/en/Content/ArticleLanding/2012/CS/c1cs15262a
Hey /sci/ I was watching some atheist/Muslim debates and I think I have a better way to come at the 0+0=1 question religious people are so fond of: 0+0=1-1=2(5)+12-2 and you can just go crazy with whatever you want as long as it sums to zero. then you say our universe exists in the -2 or something. what you guys think?
Why is it so hard for people to 'get' quantum mechanics, compared to, say, relativity theory?
Relativity doesn't really seem any more unintuitive than QM yet even normies seem able enough to accept it as true even if they struggle with its application, or understanding the arguments for it. This does not seem to be the case for quantum mechanics. Why is this?
