How long until we see a picture of Planet 9? How detailed a picture of this planet can Hubble take? If not a picture how much info can we gather from spectral data? what are the chances of ayys living there?
Old article, but it states that a laboratory has managed to create a gas with a temperature in "negative Kelvin".
This means below 0 Kelvin, which makes no sense to me because I thought temperature was measured according to particle movement and 0 Kelvin means no movement... the article doesn't do much justice in explaining the concept very well.
Anons, I need advice. I am the 1% of women in my CS course and somehow I've ended up with this guy as my lab partner. My problem is that he's waay too ahead, not just me but he's on a scholarship and have a hell good amount of experience in the industry etc. What's worse is that I myself am basically the complete opposite - I'm grinding my ass off trying get above the curve (went to a girl's school, no computing courses offered before uni, had little preparation as i changed to CS from another course at the very last moment etc). Being with him... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ask him within the scope of your abilities, (explain) what you can do to lighten the burden of whatever projects you must complete. Also, everything is a paradigm into something else, from what is standard in the course of industry and work, to the fickle moments of individual imagination. Through a topological body, question yourself on how things are connected.
Honestly, I've got mixed feelings about them, I'm 1000 issues in and I'm still unsure if I've learned anything new about the post-grad life, it probably says something that I've yet to save any particular strips for future reference. Did /sci/ learn anything from them? At the very least, they're entertaining, but are they even accurate?
Also, does anyone have the second book? The author never put Mike's thesis defence online.
>>7842852 Mostly accurate except for the obvious exaggerations.
I tried to read all the comics in one sitting once. Failed. It gets really boring when he starts doing his trips talking to grad-students who dumbed down their research is a step up from pop-sci, but not as interesting as reading the front page of Nature.
I'd also like to see Mike's thesis defence, I'm considering just buying the book, but I'm kind of mad that the author took grad-school spots at top schools and a tenure track job... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7842862 >t gets really boring when he starts doing his trips talking to grad-students who dumbed down their research You mean the tales from the road thing? I'm planning to read all of them in one sitting, the text on them is too fucking small for me to bother to put in that much focus when I'm reading the other comics for procrastination purposes.
No more live than if you stayed inside. Autorotation lets helicopters fall quite gracefully to the ground, provided the main rotor still rotates freely and there's an engine fault and not a "huge explosion to the rotor" fault.
They're death traps, but not for the reasons you think.
I have a problem. I've been playing with ferrofluid, trying to make a display like pic related, but something weird happened. I filled a glass jar with 70% isopropyl alcohol (I read this would keep the ferrofluid from staining the glass), then added several drops of the ferrofluid. It worked perfectly at first, save for the isopropyl alcohol taking on a slight brown tinge. The ferrofluid behaved as you'd expect initially, but when I checked on the display a few weeks later, the ferrofluid had hardened into solid chunks of magnetite. The display was not in a magnetic...

The carrier fluid is described as a "light hydrocarbon" in the MSDS, which most sources seem to interpret as mineral oil. The only list of light hydrocarbons I could find contained gases, so oil might be a good bet. I don't know what surfactant they used.
This is a guess ok so dont diss me for it. You are, at a basic level making a battery by adding the alchohol. Thus there is anodic/cathodic reactions occuring even between minute particles. For me, that brown tinting is a classic sign of battery corrosion, its an indicator of same in electolyte. As I say, thats my SUGGESTION for it - i am no chemist. Dont shout at me !
