Re: Factor X have we finally found the fountain of Youth?

China now claims to have two "Enhanced babies" with a third on the way. At first it was touted that is was just HIV resistance but with the third birth it was also shown intelligence and memory enhancements were part of the package. http://cdn.webfail.com/upl/img/fcd6ea1e729/post2.jpg

Re: Direct O2 evolution in collisions of carbon dioxide with surfaces

Aero wrote:Does the character of the surface have any effect on the efficiency of oxygen production? I'm thinking along the lines of a catalyst. And there must be an energy level sweet spot to maximize conversion.



Ohhhh, I like where your headed with this idea.

Re: Lockheed Martin news

Hmm, Just saw a request for a quote for a vacuum tank with six port holes made out out of stainless steel with some very high specs that looks like a enlarged LM machine, about 7 meter long and 1.5 meters wide. From a friend of mine in manufacture for the Gov. I am going to ask him to send the link ...

Re: SpaceX News

One final bit of info. SuperDraco is derived from Draco, and utilizes the same storable (non-cryogenic) propellant as the small Draco thrusters, but are over 100 times larger in terms of delivered thrust. The Draco thrusters were tested earlier in the day No conclusions or correlations just facts to...

Re: SpaceX News

Back to Apollo days : Three of those failed while they were installed in the spacecraft, two during a system test, and one, of course, was Apollo 13, as everybody is probably familiar. Others failed during acceptance or qualification tests due to: Stress corrosion cracking from red nitrogen tetroxid...

Re: SpaceX News

The engines burn hypergolic propellants—monomethylhydrazine is the fuel while nitrogen tetroxide is the oxidizer. These are fairly toxic compounds, but unlike other "cleaner" rocket fuels, they are more easily storable both on the ground and in space. COPV seem to fail when exposed to cryo...

Re: SpaceX News

There is a download on Google documents and you can reach the link on the Reddit space X forum that someone is broken down the explosion into 200 clips in PNG format. Detail is very grainy and unfortunately at the rate of explosion it only takes three frames to cover the entire craft. It is obvious ...

Re: Thermal battery with 6-8 times the energy density of lithium

Climate Change Technologies, also known as CCT Energy Storage, has launched its TED (Thermal Energy Device) with a set of remarkable claims. Remarkable claims require remarkable proof. I have yet to see either in this case. Pumped hydro still remains the cheapest most economical way to store energy....
