Title: Science Articles
Post by: The Big Train on March 07, 2014, 12:25:46 AM
ITT we post and discuss articles about science, how stuff works, and why it works. Haters are highly discouraged but not everyone has an open mind so feel free.  This is not a science picture thread, we already have one for that. Another helpful thing to avoid luking is to post the article title outside the link.

I was disappointed too... Carl Sagan's The Cosmos was probably the most captivating science program I've ever seen in my whole life (And I've seen every BBC documentary series I can get my hands on) but NdGT just doesn't do a very good job selling it... he made the age of the universe seem uninteresting... i'm having trouble recalling what all was even talked about, other than it wasn't very engaging.  I'm in the one more week boat.

The ratio between a circle’s circumference and its diameter, named pi, is a mathematical constant of crucial importance to science, yet most scientists rely on pre-computed approximations of pi for their research. This is problematic, because scientific progress relies on information that will very likely disappear in case of a cataclysmic event, such as a zombie apocalypse. In such case, scientific progress might even stop entirely. This motivates the need for a robust, yet easily applicable method to estimate pi.

Here's The Scientific Reason For Why Women Are Attracted To Rock Stars

A study suggests that woman in their most fertile phases are more attracted to men who can produce the best music.

Researchers from the University of Sussex said the findings indicated that women believed men with strong musical abilities carried better genes than those lacking in such skills.

The study involved nearly 1,500 women with an average age of 28, who were not breastfeeding, pregnant or using hormonal contraception.

Pulsars are incredibly interesting.  They are usually 10 to 50 km wide and are more dense than our sun.  The supernova that caused the pulsar is even more remarkable (look up the Crab Nebula M-01).  I have heard about companion stars and this diamond white dwarf is freaking awesome.  Cool article!

Tesla Powerwall.  Charges overnight while less demand, then turns on and powers your home during the day.  They are estimating 25% savings on power bill without introducing solar to it as a charging method. Approx $3500.  Tesla is pretty badass.

Interesting and surely valuable for many applications.  However, the 25% savings on power bills will only be temporary if it gains widespread acceptance.  Power companies will stop having  favorable time of day rates if everyone starts using more electricity at night and end up reversing the peak.

Quote
Getting a computer to say things it shouldn't is practically a tradition. That’s why it came as no surprise when Tay, the millennial chatbot created by Microsoft, started spewing bigoted and white supremacist comments within hours of its release.

Quote
The bot has a quirky penchant for tweeting emoji and using “millenial speak”—but that quickly turned into a rabid hatefest.

Quote
The bot was taught everything from repeating hateful gamergate mantras to referring to the president with an offensive racial slur.

I love this kind of stuff.  I know there has been research suggesting that dark matter is very heavy(relatively speaking) particles that are about as heavy as you can get before becoming a miniature black hole.  That would help account for the extra mass needed to keep galaxies from spinning apart. 

Plus with the recent confirmation of gravity waves it adds all sorts of new things to the equation.  Most stuff that was once thought just as theory now has real staying power.

Religion says we are alone and that a single God created us.  There was a beginning and an end.  That conflicts with many parts of science. 

Pope Francis is a very smart man and if you haven't read some of his recent(last few years) comments about this very issue you should.  He knows that eventually the church will have to have a stance on it.  Pope Francis is the man.

About a month late on this, but anyone who thinks science and religion conflict really doesn't understand at least one, but probably both, of those things.

Religion says we are alone and that a single God created us.  There was a beginning and an end.  That conflicts with many parts of science. 

Pope Francis is a very smart man and if you haven't read some of his recent(last few years) comments about this very issue you should.  He knows that eventually the church will have to have a stance on it.  Pope Francis is the man.
Religion does not say this, at least not all religions.

I mean, honestly, how long will this go that the church can deny this kind of stuff?  The competent people can realize on their own, but the religious community, man.

Well until you can definitely tell me which religion is correct I'll keep lumping them all in one.  There is only 1 science and that's the truth.

I'm not sure what you are talking about Pope Francis said, but I seriously doubt it was anything to the effect of religion being mutually exclusive with algae on Mars. And I don't think any self-respecting scientist would claim to show the existence or nonexistence of God through science.

And to be clear, scientists and religious leaders can still be idiots.

Post by: The Big Train on August 17, 2016, 01:40:20 PM
The notion that we are alone in the universe has been said since religion began.  That's the point that we are the center of everything. 

Pope Francis acknowledged that if extraterrestrial life was found that it wouldn't conflict with God.  Since the universe is vast, he is saving the church from having a hard stance on it anymore.  Where would the money go if it was proven that we are not alone and the church didn't acknowledge the truth?

He also loves astronomy which had been a big no-no for the church forever.  Also most scientists are agnostic because of the research they do and how open minded you have to be to do it. 

Pope Francis is a very smart head of the church.

Really all he meant to say was that Pope Francis is a very smart man, and he (TBT) is smarter than the Pope. Therefore, through the amazing power of deductive reasoning, TBT is a very, very smart man. After all:
It has been shown in various studies that you are must (sic) less likely to believe in religion the more intelligent you are. . .

This topic is terrifying.  Have you ever seen them movie Elysium?  That's where I believe we are headed.  Wages driven through the floor via automation, and wealth amassed in the uber elite (sort like having 8 people have as much wealth as half the globe...uh, wait).  This article implies that "leaders" will redistribute wealth to workers who have been displaced, but there is no way that the rich will allow this to happen, and it gets less likely every day...as the rich get richer. 

The good news, is that we ought to be OK. The bad news is that your grand kids might be mumped.
