Gen-X: We’ll Win in the End.

“Boomers live in the past and have ransomed the future. Millennials fear the future and are ignorant of the past. Generation X acknowledges what has gone before, learns from it, and resolves to shape the future into something better. We don’t throw our hands in the air and say the job’s a bust, let’s give up. We know we can’t go back to mythical halcyon days and we know we can’t just rip it up and start again. We work with what we’ve got and try to make it better. We change things from the inside out….” read more at via Gen-X: We’ll Win in the End. — Longreads

When 2 become 1

Is it actually real?

In order to progress in the field of Physics we need to abandon common sense – whilst it can take you so far it is riddled with human bias. Although this is a most excellent practice, it is prudent to ensure that as you abandon common sense you seek evidence wherever possible to confirm the nonsense.

A longer discursive post, highlighting one of the strangest features of quantum mechanics – quantum entanglement. No mathematical ability is required, with only a little simple probability.

Diamond Batteries Made of Nuclear Waste Can Generate Power For Thousands of Years

 The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Eleanor Roosevelt

 

The researchers realized that they could extract the radioactive carbon-14 molecules from the graphite blocks used in nuclear reactors, the part of a plant where the nuclear reactions take place to generate electricity. These graphite blocks are used to ensure the stability of the reactor, but as they’re used in the crucial area where reactions take place, dangerous carbon-14 molecules collect on their surface. Researchers found that the radioactive molecules were close enough to the surface that they could be extracted from the block. The radioactive molecules can then be used to create diamonds, which are also made of carbon. The graphite blocks, with less radioactive elements, are then safer to store.

The world in 2045…

You can’t predict the future by looking at the past facts are technology evolves, and things change with new discoveries. In the past 30 years nanotech wasn’t even a thing; or it was just too expensive to do, now it is actually possible.

Predicting the future is fraught with challenges, but when it comes to technological advances and forward thinking, experts working at the Pentagon’s research agency may be the best people to ask.

“Imagine a world where you could just use your thoughts to control your environment,” Sanchez said. “Think about controlling different aspects of your home just using your brain signals, or maybe communicating with your friends and your family just using neural activity from your brain.”

First Philippine Microsatellite, Unveiled : The Diwata-1

The ‘Diwata-1′, the Philippines’ first microsatellite, was unveiled to the public for the first time at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). 

“This is the first microsatellite that is built with Filipino engineers, and also the first microsatellite of the Philippines,” said Dr. Rowena Guevara, Undersecretary for Scientific & Technological Services, DOST

Diwata 1 was developed and assembled by Filipino engineers specifically seven Filipino scholars in a span of one year.

Diwata-1 is the first satellite of the venture and is also a part of the Department of Science and Technology’s Philippine Scientific Earth Observation Micro-Satellite (PHL-Microsat) Program. The satellite is an updated version of the Raijin-2 which was developed by the two Japanese universities.

The Philippine government has been availing services from foreign countries for satellite imagery. Carlos Primo David, executive director of the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development called the whole PHL-Microsat program is a small investment taking note that in 2013, following the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Typhoon Yolanda, the government had to pay about ₱56 million for a set of image of areas affected by the typhoon. This led to the creation of the program.
