Science is Cool....

This is a repository for all cool scientific discussion and fascination. Scientific facts, theories, and overall cool scientific stuff that you'd like to share with others. Stuff that makes you smile and wonder at the amazing shit going on around us, that most people don't notice.

Post pictures, vidoes, stories, or links. Ask questions. Share science.

This is in support of the Penny 4 NASA project. If you enjoy anything you learned from this thread, consider making a donation and signing the petition.

I haven't watched the vid, but the fact that our sperm attacks sperm from another person when presented, suggests some serious ****ing was going on one way or the other.

Now THIS could be huge. Will certainly put pressure on carbon fiber innovation.

Approximately 3.3 million years ago someone began chipping away at a rock by the side of a river. Eventually, this chipping formed the rock into a tool used, perhaps, to prepare meat or crack nuts. And this technological feat occurred before humans even showed up on the evolutionary scene. That's the conclusion of an analysis published today in Nature of the oldest stone tools yet discovered. Unearthed in a dried-up riverbed in Kenya, the shards of scarred rock, including what appear to be early hammers and cutting instruments, predate the previous record holder by around 700,000 years. Though it’s unclear who made the tools, the find is the latest and most convincing in a string of evidence that toolmaking began before any members of the Homo genus walked the Earth.

A few years old but I hadn't seen it:

Archaeology has long associated advanced blade production with the Upper Palaeolithic period, about 30,000-40,000 years ago, linked with the emergence of Homo Sapiens and cultural features such as cave art. Now researchers at Tel Aviv University have uncovered evidence which shows that "modern" blade production was also an element of Amudian industry during the late Lower Paleolithic period, 200,000-400,000 years ago as part of the Acheulo-Yabrudian cultural complex, a geographically limited group of hominins who lived in modern-day Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

An interesting article overall, but the first part is the most interesting. It appears that we can fly by Pluto, but it would be extremely difficult to actually land on it or go into orbit around it. You have to go really fast to get there in under a decade, and Pluto's gravity is so low that you can't use it to capture the spacecraft or even slow it down much. You'd have to take an enormous amount of fuel to slow down, which isn't currently feasible.

Hey, I'm not too old for 4th grade humor.

Well, if the schedule's right, New Horizons just did that Pluto drive-by. We won't see pics until tomorrow, I guess.

I'm thinking, though: What if I were out there in my spacesuit just hanging around with Pluto and Charon, minding my own business, and this half ton thing blows past me at 30,000 mph? There's no shock wave or wake, I would imagine. But would I feel anything? Could I even see it?

Well I can cross another one off my list of potential places to relocate.
I had narrowed it down to Pluto or Scottsdale.

Wow, Musk has made a lot of progress on his idea of a hyperloop.
http://www.iflscience.com/elon-musks...sort-happening

The Hyperloop is a concept for a transportation system whereby a capsule inside a near-vacuum tube can accelerate up to around 1,220 kilometers (760 miles) per hour, providing a rapid transport system for passengers. It’s estimated that a trip from Washington D.C. to New York City would take just 30 minutes.


It sounds like the stuff of science fiction – and at the moment, it is. But the company that is aiming to develop this technology has announced they are making significant progress, and will start building a test track next year in Quay Valley, California.


SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk first proposed the idea of the Hyperloop in 2013. At the time, he said he wasn’t looking to develop the idea himself, but was instead releasing the idea for others to develop. Thus sprung up Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), founded by JumpStartFund, who decided to push ahead with Hyperloop’s development.


The company has been looking for volunteers across a range of disciplines – from engineers to technicians – to help make the dream a reality. The company has now revealed they have more than 400 professionals on board, while companies including Oerlikon, Aecom and Hodgetts & Fung were involved to provide support. And they also confirmed 2016 as the year they would start building the first test track.

Quantum Mechanics Just Got "Spookier"


An international collaboration and a newly published paper may have just settled a century old physics debate.


Quantum mechanics is spooky. Entanglement – a component of quantum mechanics – tells us that two particles can be directly connected even across vast distances. If you measure the spin of one particle, you immediately know the spin of its counterpart. Physicists have labeled this behavior as “spooky” as it doesn’t follow everyday logic. Common sense tells us that objects across the universe cannot possibly be connected, yet in the quantum realm, they are. Quantum mechanics also says that properties of particles are only fixed when the particle is observed.
Some physicists, including Albert Einstein, opposed this notion as it went against the very nature of the real world. In the 1930s when quantum mechanics was an emerging field, Einstein was a proponent of “local realism,” arguing that only close objects could affect each other. Einstein and other physicists developed the ‘hidden variables theory’ to explain the spooky behavior. They argued that our knowledge of quantum mechanics was incomplete and there could be hidden variables that we didn’t yet understand.


In the 1960s a physicist named John Bell devised a mathematical expression – called an inequality – to test for these so-called hidden variables. He realized that if these hidden variables did indeed exist, there would be a limit to how connected the particles were. If they exceeded the set limit then the hidden variables did not exist. However, the experiment – known as Bell’s Inequality – did not definitively close the door on local realism. The tests involved entangled photons, which can get lost along the way, and experimenters might not detect all photons produced.


In the new experiment, led by Bas Hansen of Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, we have two researchers – we will call them Alice and Bob – in two laboratories 1.3 kilometers apart. Each laboratory is set up with a diamond chip containing an electron whose spin was entangled with a photon. The photons were then sent to a third lab in between Alice and Bob, where a detector records the arrival time. If two photons arrived at the same time they would be entangled, resulting in the electrons being entangled as well.



The experiment took place over a span of nine days. In that time, researchers recorded 245 successful entanglements. While other tests over the last few decades have also supported Bell’s limit, this new experiment learns from their shortcomings to overcome experimental pitfalls. Previous test used inefficient detectors, only measuring a small number of the particles passing through them. Recent experiments used near-perfect detectors, but the entangled particles were close enough to potentially communicate. In the new experiment, the team used high-quality detectors and measurements collected before the electrons could possibly exchange signals with each other, making it the first to close both loopholes.


The results of this experiment have big implications for the world of quantum cryptography – meaning entangled photons could potentially create secure encryption keys. Closing the loopholes would ensure that computer systems could detect if anyone tried to intercept the keys, as it would break the entanglement and trigger an alarm.
