      Tech would use drones and insect biobots to map disaster areas

      https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1117104402.htm

      Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a combination of software and hardware that will allow them to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas -- such as collapsed buildings after a disaster.

        What shape are photons? Quantum holography sheds light

        Physicists created a hologram of a single light particle, a feat previously thought impossible.

          This is extremely interesting.
          New technology has been developed that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered battery. A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have grown a man-made diamond that, when placed in a radioactive field, is able to generate a small electrical current. The development could solve some of the problems of nuclear waste, clean electricity generation and battery life.

            Today's Sunlight Was Produced Before Human Civilization Began

            It may take light as much as a million years to escape from the sun’s fiery interior; from there, it has to travel 93 million miles to Earth, traveling at 186,000 miles per second -- about 8 minutes.

              The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder finally hits the big-data highway

              You know how long it takes to pack the car to go on holidays. But there’s a moment when you’re all in, everyone has their seatbelt on, you pull out of the drive and you’re off.

              Our ASKAP (Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder) telescope has just pulled out of the drive, so to speak, at its base in Western Australia at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO), about 315km northeast of Geraldton.

                okay....that is weird. I always assumed the light from the sun was produced on the surface of the sun, not inside the sun....nuclear fusion deep inside the sun makes the light and according to this, it takes millions of years for this light to merely escape to the surface of the sun, where then it is free and zooms to the earth in 8 minutes? mind blown.

                makes me wonder about earth, man made nuclear fusion and light made by it. maybe I need another drink.

                  maybe not the proper place for these thoughts of mine, that have been in my head for a day or two....but, as a 69 1/2 year old geezer.....I kind of feel sorry for todays people that are less than 50 years old.....why you ask? When Gene Cernan died on the 16th, the man literally walked on the moon's surface in December 1972.

                  At the time in '72 ......we had been seeing men walk on the moon for 3 years or so, and in reality it was "no big deal" and I don't really even recall his walk on the moon. Sure I remember the first steps on the moon by Armstrong in 69, but after that it was "old hat" and maybe you saw some video footage of it on the nightly news. But no one really stopped work or stayed up all night to watch video feeds.

                  Still, it was exciting to know men were going to the moon, landing, walking on it, riding around in buggies up there, and then coming back in a space ship. The whole few years that US astronauts were going to the moon and coming back, was kind of exciting, though I freely admit it got to be routine after a while and a moon trip to land was nothing that you hadn't seen before.

                  I don't think we thought that it would stop. We kind of assumed it would continue year after year and it just would not stop. But it did, and no one has been back and walked on the moon since 1972, the year before our daughter was born. She is now a grown woman, has a 20 year old son, and neither her or that grandson have ever seen a man walk on the moon in real time.

                  What happened? Why did we stop going? Were the payouts of the trip so unrewarding? Is a space station in earth orbit, better, in returns than a trip to another place you can stand and get samples of rock and "earth"? I guess the Mars trip is planned before long, and I hope it turns out okay though it will be a lot longer duration than a quick trip to the moon for milk and cigs.

                  BTW.....in June 1971 the "Last Whole Earth Catalog" was published, it was like Google in book form way before google existed. The cover color photo of the book was the planet Earth as seen from Apollo 4. The cost of the book was $5.

                    surface is also hot(about 6000K), and emits photons, like any hot body.

                      Pretty amazing I agree, commanding. There is a nice podcast about it with Dr Pamela Gay in this Astronomy cast.

                      And, thank you for sharing your amazing real time insights regarding the Apollo experiences, commanding, very much appreciated!

                                A LOST continent that sunk 100 million years ago has been discovered underneath New Zealand.

                                The Sun reports the sunken world has been dubbed Zealandia as is mostly submerged beneath the South Pacific.
