That's right guys! The first tests for creating a stabilizing a fusionplasma are starting this week in Greifswald, Germany! Is /sci/ hype for the next big step for sovling any imaginable engery crysis? Sorry, but for now I only have a german link for proof. If someone could find a english news article, that would be great.
You can't swim yet you're asking to dive in the deep end
>Is there any recommended book or resource that explains these concepts without relying too much on higher level mathematics (if such a thing is even possible) while at the same time not going full on retard popsci? Dis nigga
Are there any repercussions to spending a long time in the shower? It's the best part of my day and I'd like to start having 3-4 hour sessions in there, maybe even get to the point where I can lie down and sleep under the shower head.
Gookchan doesn't have a health board so I figured /sci/ would be the next best thing.
Humans neocortex (the outer brain, the conscious and "smart" one) is directly connected to the limbic brain (the emotional one, not conscious). You can't chose who to love or like, the limbic brain automatically selects who is "perfect" for you; since the limbic brain is deeply connected to the neocortex we will feel attachment to someone that's not part of our family (animals like dogs start liking you because you maintain them, their limbic brain is really developed but their neocortex is not half as developed; humans can have "love at first...

>>7706220 >You can't chose who to love or like, the limbic brain automatically selects This is near universally wrong. You can most certainly choose how you want to feel, it can feel real, and you can do it for years.
Not to sound like a prick, but don't assume your own lack of mental exploration and slave-like mentality constituents the truth of how the human machine works, and can be made to work. You can choose how you feel. You always could, you always can.

I am starting to believe that it really is a better idea than Mars. >Shielded from radiation >Atmospheric pressure is the same as on Earth >Venus is closer >Same... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7705967 Nobody cares if it's more viable for a colony. We like Mars better because it has a lower gravity (lower escape velocity) and more usable materials. I know that Venus is more suitable for human life, but what's the advantage of going there? What is the human race gaining? Going to Mars allows us to more easily mine from the asteroid belt, and that's what space exploration has always been about. Exploration of new frontiers is fueled by resources; human colonies just provide a bigger customer base.
No it isn't. Making something warmer is much easier than making something colder.
Beyond that, not having access to the planet surface makes things a lot harder. On Mars, you don't have to bring most of your building materials with you - just tunnel in. On Venus, it would be more like being on a space station - just much harder... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Calc 1 student here. Final is in 6 hours. I could use more optimization practice. Does anyone know a resource for practice optimization problems (that have step-by-step solutions available)? Preferably a resource that has both easy and hard problems.
1. Find objective function 2. Identify constraints 3. Reduce objective function to one variable 4. Identify domain of objective function 5. Differentiate 6. Find critical numbers by setting to 0 7. Test critical numbers using on of: a. closed interval method b. 1st derivative test c. 2nd derivative test 8. Answer
Hardest part is easily steps 1 and 2. Sometimes step 5 is tough if I have to differentiate something messy. The rest is easy.
Retards are still mad about Monsanto and claim that genetically modified food products are "unnatural" and "abominations."
I sat and listened to a woman bitch about how we didn't know if they were carcinogenic or not. Sometimes I enjoy my rage, other times I do not.
My research in genetics was solely in humans and rats, so I don't have firsthand interactions with GMOs. I hope there are some /sci/entists who do work in the field. Pls post about what you're doing and what your research will be the basis for in years to come. C:
>>7705881 Last time we had a thread about this. Some faggot kept posting pictures of pigs and rats with tumours and blatantly lying to promote the anti GMO agenda.
What I got from that thread is that GMOs are perfectly safe, but there's a big economic argument to go against them: GMOs are the future and they're going to crash smaller markets. This is a reason some countries are banning them.
>>7705887 They threaten the whole bullshit non-GMO market which makes billions.
So some corporations throw a few million dollars to San Francisco natives to go smell bad around labs.
I remember reading an article from a Monsanto research head a few years ago about how the focus was going to shift from optimizing the crops themselves to optimizing where the crops grew, focusing on the soil's superregional ability to support certain crop types better.
It would make harvesting a pain, but it was an interesting idea.
Hey /sci/ I use to hate math as a passion. Recently though I've learned why I hated it so much. It wasn't because I found it boring or anything like that, but when my teachers told us how to do formulas, they never told why they work. I discovered this recently when I found out what makes pi so important.
Now I'm wanting to get into physics and would like some suggestions on books I should pick up.
