Turns out the entire new Brian Greene series on Nova this Summer, is already available.

The above was the first of five.

See #3, 24:00. Oh shit. Jeebus didn't die yet ? On no !

And BTW, could you come back in 10 million years, please. http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/20...tml?ref=hp

Here's one of those thingies I really like about science:

Quote: The finding, while preliminary, is already raising hopes for the development of warning signals that would alert whales, dolphins and other sea mammals to auditory danger.
Debating theism, I just wanna toss humans into the wood chipper. But stuff like this is where the "hope for humanity" exists, imo. Tiger would just eat them mofos. Thumbsup

Dang Gwynnies got me so spun up... to Mars. Big Grin

http://www.esa.int/esa-mmg/mmg.pl?b=b&ke...=11&size=b


Cydonia. You know, face on Mars? That, you know, ain't a face? Plus, a buncha cool pics and stuff, there, at ESA. Thumbsup

Here's another one:

Guy's leaning towards the tin foil, saying:

Quote:I am confident that few viewing them adequately will be able to escape the possibility, however minute, that there may indeed be products of intelligently artificial manufacture strewn about the sculpted massifs and plains of Cydonia.
But the pix are fat and look unedited; I see mesa. I can see how peeps see face, but, nah. Mesa. Thumbsup

...and now for something completely different!





This fucking guy... we can't know, little evidence, maybe this, unlikely that... Big Grin

Theists go, but that's doubt and shit! Not exactly. Thumbsup

...and after that one, here's a couple more:

Test tomorrow! Study up! Big Grin

Yep -nothing like National Geographic. It's about an hour and a half - but it goes by so quickly.

In Record Summer Heat, 97 Percent of Greenland's Surface Ice Turns to Slush

This has been a sensationally hot summer for America, with records breaking daily. But Greenland seems to have just claimed the heat-related phenomenon crown, with 97 percent of its ice sheet turning to slush. The even stranger part? It might be completely normal--at least for now.
The melting isn't a one-off event; every summer Greenland's ice melts some amount. But it's usually about half, and in the 30 years we've been keeping a satellite eye on the changes, we haven't seen anything like this. It was so out of the ordinary, in fact, that scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory questioned if it was caused by some kind of malfunction. The melt had to be confirmed independently by other climatologists.
By July 8, according to the satellite information, 40 percent was melted. Four days later it was up to 97 percent, and even the area around the highest point of the ice sheet, Summit Station, showed signs of melting. At the same time, a ridge of warm air known as a heat dome was affecting the country, which likely had a lot to do with the melting.
We know from analysis of ice cores that the last time melting like this happened was circa 1889, which, you'd logically think, would mean this was completely unexpected. But it wasn't. Lora Koenig, a Goddard glaciologist and a member of the research team analyzing the satellite data, said in a statement: "Ice cores from Summit show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time."
Researchers don't know yet if this will contribute to sea levels rising in Greenland, but if it happens again in the next few years, that could threaten the stability of the ice sheet, which would mean major cause for concern.
