D_Evans45: Cracked was ever cool? 15 page slideshow/ad bombs comprised of "fu*k yeah!" humor, apparently aimed at 16 year olds, every time I gave it a chance.


I'll say this about it: I teach high school, and those 16 year olds love it. Ok, it's "f#ck yeah!" humor, but if it gets them interested in Alan Turing or whatever - I'll take it.

And no, I don't use it in class. They've talked about it though.

"Why the hell is the sun's corona so much hotter than its surface?"

Inductive heating from intensive magnetic activity.

NEXT!

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: My question has always been: Why bother with Mars or the moon? In my opinion, we should first focus on living in space itself. Once we've got that down, we can go anywhere we want. The guys focusing on capturing asteroids have the right idea, put rockets on one of those and drop it into a stable orbit.


You mean build a space station...maybe with international effort?

god damnit you idiots

Cracked "quick fixes" are always on one page.

But let's just be stupid about it.

thisispete: I think far more science can be generated by sending multiple probes to Mars than by sending a risky human mission


Who cares about minor changes in relative gains in science? The Beagle was a navy ship, Darwin still managed to discover shiat.

We go to Mars, look for life. If none is found, we put some there. Ta-da!

That's not THE space station though. That's the workmans shed that would of allowed the construction of THE space station.

Never forget exactly what the ISS was supposed to be and what it ended up being.

antron: Isn't L3, being on the other side of the sun, going to be more challenging than L4/L5?


L3 for the Earth-Moon system. We are many decades away from building manned stations at any of the Sun-Earth L points. So it would be opposite the moon's orbit but closer. Last I'd heard though there was more of a science case for L2, behind the moon.

NASA is thinking about the next station after ISS... and maybe that it should be parked at the L3 Lagrange point instead of an equatorial low Earth orbit. That location is actually farther away than the moon, but it is a stable sort of gravitational "sargasso sea" where shiat stays where you put it, but it only takes a small rocket burn to launch out to anywhere from there. It would make a reasonable gas station and launch pad for asteroid and Mars exploration.

I think far more science can be generated by sending multiple probes to Mars than by sending a risky human mission (although human exploration appeals to the romantic in me too). Especially a Mars sample return mission where samples gathered by probes are sent back to Earth for analysis. Additionally, whoever came up with the idea of mobile probes deserves a gold star AND a smiley face on his or her work.
