If you were to start a space company, what would it be based on? I have a dream of sending spacecraft out to explore space. However, I need a way to fund that exploration. What are some profitable ideas? I was thinking something satellite based, maybe sending them out to space? Then eventually get into space mining once there is a widespread need for raw material in space. Or maybe get a piece of the sounding rocket business.
Can coconut water be used as iv fluid for animals? for example: dogs or cows. I heard research was done for humans but I haven't read anything for animals.

Thanks guys, thanks for the SHIT advice.
Gladly, helium tank is already in the mailbox.
I don't get this board.
>Suggest people become engineers for the salary despite there not being a high demand for engineers
>Shit on CS majors despite there being a high demand and pay for codemonkeys
I'm sorry they did this to you OP.
Just imagine how many of the visitors to this board were pressured by these autists to major in the SM parts of STEM.
All those math/physical science/life science grads who thought their degree was worth something because "I STEM therefor I smart.", only to realize that workforce almost puts them in the same category as a liberal arts grad.
How much sense does a wedge-shaped space battleship make in real life? Lore-wise, the idea was to focus as much firepower possible forward while having a minimal profile.
Yeah, but let's just assume you could actually build one and space combat wouldn't be a boring affair of shooting at targets millions of kilometers out. What would be the optimum shape?
Educate me /Sci/. I'm working on a science fiction story, one planet concept I had was an earth like world, covered in fresh water oceans with very little salt water. It has an earth like atmosphere, and is about 3 times earths size. It harbours intelligent life, a species older than humanity in fact,
So how feasible is this? Should I make any changes?
How the hell does the Banach-Tarski paradox work? I've read about it, but I just don't grok it.
Exactly what part of the proof you don't understand?
Overall, it works thanks to the axiom of proof and non-measurable sets, without any of them it wouldn't be possible.
If there's a particular part of the proof that you don't get, post it and I may be able to explain it further.
I study physics in the first semester.
I spent the first 6 weeks of university doing almost nothing. I severly underestimated how hard it really is. Is there hope for me? I have already started studying but I feel like Ive passed the point of no return. Do you guys have any tips?
It is ironic that the more maths a person does the neater the handwriting, with medfags having atrocious writings.
ITT: Name your major + post PIC of your handwriting.
Pure mathematics master race.
What's wrong with pop science?
Nothing with the thing itself, it's only that the people who like it defend it too much
Is nanoscience a part of chemistry, biology, or physics?
Psssst hey kid, you wanna make nanomachines and shit? Then do chemistry kid.
Also, fuck you biology. Synthetic chemistry will soon exceed biology in what's possible. Fuck you proteins, you're too hard to engineer. Fuck you DNA nanotech, you're too weak.
OFFICIAL THREAD #1, HUMAN GENE EDITING SUMMIT
December 1-3, 2015
major component of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Medicine's Human Gene-Editing Initiative is an international summit to take place December 1-3 in Washington, D.C. Co-hosted with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the U.K.'s Royal Society, the summit will convene experts from around the world to discuss the scientific, ethical, and governance issues associated with human gene-editing research. Watch our live webcast beginning on Tuesday,...

some real news/info on it
In May, the U.S. Academies launched a major initiative to inform decision making related to new gene-editing technologies that could lead to promising, novel ways to treat disease but that also have given rise to concerns, particularly about their potential use to modify the human germline. In addition to the summit, the initiative will include a comprehensive study of human gene editing by a separate committee, which will issue a report next year with recommendations to guide the responsible use of such research.

Why do attractive women despise STEM?
Bettering yourself in STEM requires time and effort. For a lot of attractive women they have lived their lives with men giving them what they want for being attractive. So why do something that requires effort when you can just take handouts?
Part of it is social stigma. A lot of people seem to think the only way to be good in a STEM field is to be an introvert or a creep, so they avoid it because, "Ew, why would you want to be around THOSE people?"
Is there any easy way to learn calculus?
"easy" is relative. For example, it is easy for this goat to climb this cliff, but it would be hard for you.
Owl -> Hearing
"With ears set at different places on its skull, an owl is able to determine the direction from which the sound is coming by the minute difference in time that it takes for the sound waves to penetrate the left and right ears."
Is this true?
It's how your directional hearing works too. It's also why you can't tell what direction sound is coming from underwater; the higher speed of sound makes the time difference too small for your brain to find the direction of the source.
