So what does /sci/ know about the world and its current progress on realistic stem cell research? Im no professor or university student, and unfortunately I broke my spine this year damaging my spinal cord, so you can imagine stem cells are of great importance to me. first off, what do I know? bare with me, its a lengthy post for you Bio-majors and Neuroscience Genuises.
Im going to list the various approaches Ive found in MY OWN personal studying, to be the most beneficial therapies for injuries such as mine; not acute injuries, but chronic ones to include every situation....

>Invivo Therepautics
This is a company that is looking to use what they call a "Neural Spinal Scaffold" to bioengineer neural tissue via Neural Stem Cells that would be inlaid into the spinal scaffold. A 3D bandaid if you will, go in, cut the damage out, apply the 'bandaid' with stem cells giving the nerves framework to cling to. It is compromised of what they call 90% air so as to allow it to be absorbed by the body naturally once the nerves have regenerated. Clinical tests have been done on acute and chronic with some improvement WITHOUT the preloaded Neural Stem Cells this company has in their hands.

>Stemcells Inc.
This is a company that is looking to transplant CNS-derived stem cells to create multi-potent, tissue-derived “adult” stem cells that are directly transplantable into the brain, spinal cord or eye without the need for immunnosuppresive drugs as the cells are created from your own system. From what I can understand the cells are injected into the spinal cord where your injury is and accompanied by peptides to allow the axons to grow through the glial scar that blocks chemical signals.

>Olfactory ensheathing Bulb
This is more a less an approach that has been barely broached but shows huge promise, by using cells cultured from the olafactory ensheathing bulb within your brain as they are the only cell able to continuously regrow throughout your lifetime. They are also perfect for recoating the axons in myelin a fatty substance that gets damaged during SCI, which allows electrical signals to be transmitted swifty.

File: person on raft.jpg (207 KB, 750x499) Image search: [iqdb] [SauceNao] [Google]
207 KB,
Yes, I know it's probably a simple problem, but I'm retarded. So a person is standing on a raft that has no friction with the water, but still has friction with his feet. If he takes a step forward, what happens to his position in space and the position of the raft? I'd assume mass has something to do with it, so if it weighed 9999999 kg you would both move but the raft would move a small amount. If the raft weighed less than you, the raft would move a lot more than you. Can someone explain this concept?
>>
I haven't done physics in a while but I think it's because the center of mass of the system {guy+raft} doesn't move
>>
>>7669693
Also, I don't think the movement of the raft depends on the mass of the guy standing on it, it just moves the same amount in the opposite direction
>>

But your assessment seems correct to me.

Don't want to get hooked on nicotine, and prefer not to inhale polonium etc. And I grew up around people who smoked.

I don't have an addictive personality, but I get attached to drugs easily. Stimulants especially. So I'll stick to caffeine and cocoa beans.

Why are we still at blue ray? why haven't we optimized the potential elite violate rays yet to create disk that can hold 100+GBs? Or is society just slowly moving away from disk all together so things are now all digital since internet access is pretty abundant?

This. Why would I want to buy a disk when I can watch something and then move on with my life instead of having it for a long time on a shelf? Books aren't a good comparison since they have great re-readability potential while you can only watch your favorite a movie for a few times a month maybe.

36 KB,
Greetings, /philosophy/

There can be no solution to the problem of the "prime mover" within our universe. We exist in a causal universe, therefore, nothing in that universe can be the "first" cause because it would violate the definition of our universe as causal.

Correct?

If so, then must we conclude that beyond our universe is a reality that is non-causal? And is it reasonable to assume that a causal universe could be "spawned" from a non-causal reality?

This is the only line of reasoning that solves the problem of...
>>
Your image distinguishes between input and output, you should too.
>>
>>7669375
I'm not sure where you need the distinction made, but I'll try... The "prime mover," or the first thing that ever happened in this universe, would have to resemble the right half of the image. Just some output happening on its own, with no input. This universe is not capable of that, as far as we know, right?
>>
>>7669367
the unmoved mover moves without being moved.
aristotle mentions the analogy of someone being loved. the loved one moves the loving one without being moved himself. he (or it) so to speak can't be causal. he just is.

I fucked up sci.

I have literally no idea how to use differential equations. Its been years.

Pic related, an old exam problem the likes of which I'm gonna need to be able to solve for my final.

I'm in panic mode, somebody please try and explain this shit to me... use small words.

>>7669342
Just review the dynamic sections in your heat transfer textbook. You're looking for the heat transfer PDE in cylindrical coordinates. In 1.a set all differentials with respect to time equal to zero.

This problem is too textbook tier for an exam imo. I'm assuming your writing closed book then? Your prof is a fag.

What textbook are you using?

So let's get this straight. Are parallel universe/ multiverse/ alternate realities/ string theory or whatever you call it really real? By real I mean scientifically proven and is real in the sense that it actually exists. I want to know if there could really be an infinite number of realities in an infinite number of universes where every possible scenario to every possible situation is happening all at once and everything that ever was is or could be or will be every possible solution or outcome or path of way of movement is possible and exists in a universe that is running...

>>7669247
No, it's hypothesis at this point, and not testable so far.

>>7669257
lol so its not real? Have they proven it?

>So let's get this straight. Are parallel universe/ multiverse/ alternate realities/ string theory or whatever you call it really real? By real I mean scientifically proven and is real in the sense that it actually exists.
Not scientifically proven, might be real in the "actually exists" sense since it's not disproved.

571 KB,
So what's the deal with this, guys?

Is there anything to this? And what is actually being done to these mice, and possibly humans? I find it a bit hard to believe we'd just find immortality like various articles are claiming

Are the mice actually still aging and will die of natural causes and are just not being hampered by the effects of old age, or did we actually just find a possible way to make living creatures biologically immortal?
>>
I want to live longer, so I can help others longer.
>>
>>7669234

What articles have you seen claiming we've discovered immortality? I'd be more interested in those.
>>
>>7669259
Well, they weren't the kind of websites to use the words "immortality." More like they were calling this new drug "like the fountain of youth."

Just googling "anti-aging drug mice" and some of the first few articles mention it.

I'm paying extra attention to this drug because, well, I really, really want to live until the heat death of the universe.

Why don't we launch rockets from very tall mountains where the atmosphere is thinner?
>>
>>7669216
Moving the equipment and rocket to the top of a mountain is harder than just shooting the rocket to that height.
>>
>>7669216
Because atmosphere isn't the biggest issue, not by a long shot. Long story short, launching at the equator like the yuros is the best you can do as far as location is concerned.
>>
>>7669225
What about tall mountains near the equator?
