Rosetta’s comet sculpted by stress


#esa #europeanspaceagency #news #science #space

Feeling stressed? You’re not alone. ESA’s Rosetta mission has revealed that geological stress arising from the shape of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko has been a key process in sculpting the comet's surface and interior following its formation.

Is it ethically justifiable to murder a newborn?


I found an article on this and found it rather disturbing to only think about it, even calling it a «post-birth abortion». Hence, I would like to hear your opinion about it, but only after reading the article on this topic. I will only link the page in which I found it; if you can't access the article, install the free add-on Unpaywall to access it.

I'm the parent of a child who is recovering from vaccine damage due to a genetic predisposition. We think. Actually, we don't know. And the reason we don't know is because there's so much fearmongering on this subject that hardly anyone is brave enough to actually look at the science.

Sorry, but the question isn't "should we censor the crazies who don't believe in vaccines?". The question is "why did our government sell our kids to Big Pharma?"

A simple test could have saved us years of therapy for developmental delays and $20k. She never should have been vaccinated.

But instead of putting our heads in the sand like 3 of our friends at church did when their kids were diagnosed with autism, my momma-bear wife dug in and "googled" for a cure- and found one- yes, she cured "autism". But nobody cares....(quick! Hit the "censor button!")

Did you know the only large study comparing vaccinated kids against unvaccinated kids showed that unvaccinated kids are less likely to have asthma, add, adhd, allergies, ecz... show more

Last thing to share for the night, but I read this article today that both terrified and encouraged me.

Someone in my family died from Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and it was a truly horrifying and heartbreaking situation that I wouldn't wish on anyone. The prospect of these diseases being more widespread than previously thought is scary. But if the same driving force is behind CJD and Alzheimer's and others, then perhaps that will allow researchers to find more effective treatments or a cure more efficiently? I'm no doctor, but that would be spectacular.

The rapid evolution of Egypt’s Nile Delta over the last four years, as viewed from ESA’s Proba-V microsatellite. Think of it as a small token of our love for planet Earth: just a cubic metre in size, Proba-V maps land cover and vegetation growth across the entire world every two days.

Astronaut photography benefiting the planet

When astronauts take photographs of our planet while orbiting 400 km above our heads, they are doing much more than just taking pretty pictures. They are looking after the health of our planet and, ultimately, us too.

EarthCARE mission to improve weather forecasts


#earth #esa #europeanspaceagency #science #space

Image/photo

Earth observation satellite data are crucial for generating accurate weather predictions. They provide a global picture of the current state of the atmosphere, which is used as the starting point for creating a forecast. But our knowledge of that current state is limited, partly because satellites have so far not been able to collect much information about clouds, which play a key role in the weather. The ESA/JAXA future mission EarthCARE will provide this information to improve our predictions about the future weather and climate.

Project Pextex: materials for lunar spacesuits


#esa #europeanspaceagency #human #science #space

Image/photo

On 17 January 2019 ESA signed a study contract with Comex and its partners DITF and OeWF. Pextex is a two-year project to identify materials and textiles that could be used for future lunar mission space suits.

The project aims to develop solutions that could be based on existing space suit materials, but also identify novel types of textiles with self-healing functions or repulsing lunar dust and smart textiles for example.

The other day, @Rhysy posted a picture of a stained glass Menger sponge. That gave me the urge to 3d print one. So I fired up OpenSCAD and designed one. It’s a recursive structure, so the function in OpenSCAD was recursive. At four levels deep, it runs my computer out of memory. So three levels it is…
