Becouse it opposes one of the fundamental right of every human, that is the right to self determination of his own destiny, including deciding if and when to reproduce. Sooner or later we might arrive to the point that regulating childbearing will be a necessity for the good of the whole planet, but...

I remember reading about him almost a couple of years ago, but, apart from the initial promises and working diagrams, no more news was released on the project.
Also the website dedicated to the project apparently is not loading anymore:

My understanding is they are measuring a force exerted by the spinning fluid on a nearby measurement device, rather than a force on the spinning fluid.


That's correct.

The probe was around 1,5 Tons and at a speed of impact of around 9000 Km/H that's a lot of impact energy, for sure much more than the average people jumping in a swimming pool :) I found this for the expected crater dimension and ejected mass: http://lcross.arc.nasa.gov/images/impact8.gif Let's wait...

All those theories are just long shots to define something we did not observe nor we did fully understand until now. In a much smaller scale, you can make a comparision with 19th-20th century scientists trying to come up with the possibility of something moving at a speed greater than sound. I shoul...

True, in my calculations I assumed that the plume was a noticeble percentage of the total volume of the crater, but indeed it might not be the case.

Indeed it looks like something is going on in their experiments, let's wait for the next paper where, hopefully, they will have more data and a better understanding of what is going on. If it is connected to the liquid helium there will be a lot of people that will start to scratch their heads in se...

I hope that the final numbers are better than those as 35 gallons of water from the plume of a 60 meter diameter crater gives a water concentration of less than few part per "tenthousands".....

Let's wait for the more detailed analysis and see what comes out.

ok whats the bubble about? It's an emulsion of low temperature boiling points halomethanes like R-12 or R-22 (refrigerant liquid) with an ethylene/polyethilene matrix. This liquid emulsion has the characteristic that keeps his liquid state at a temperature higher than it's boiling temperature, and ...

As for using a heated drill, as put forth by Giorgio above, yes, that could work if we find ice sheets under the surface that are not very deep. I do not think that there is even a small possibility to find some ice sheets on the moon (tought I'll be very happy to be wrong). In reality we will be h...

Not even entertaining in my point of view, just some commercial blabbering. Anular wings (or ring wings) are around since the understanding of the concept of "wing" itself, and have been discussed and analyzed plently. No new phisics or invention here, just the old Bernoulli principle in a...
