  1. How could we test it, Wouldn't we be able to detect this with our own star?
  2. Bye bye job 😡. F**k you corona. Could be worse, but still...

    1. MigL


      Job ? Who needs a job ?
      You can't spend money on entertainment anymore; everything is shut down.
      Pretty soon you won't even need money for food, as all the grocery stores will be shut.

  3. I'm no expert, but you should be taking this very seriously. Gloves, masks, regular washing of hands, social distancing should all be adhered too. Granted, it's easier to say than it is to do, do you even has access to face masks and gloves? I don't nor can I get any. The moderator Charon Y is a good person to follow on this subject. Very knowledgeable and informative. Try reading through the corona virus mega thread. Take care. Stay safe. 🙏🏻
  4. 'Antibacterial and antiviral activity are lower if no water is present'. Sorry, i misinterpreted the above statement, thought it meant more water made it less effective.
  5. 'Trump says he may soon push businesses to reopen, defying the advice of coronavirus experts' Sure glad I don't live in America right now. This guys an idiot. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/coronavirus/trump-says-he-may-soon-push-businesses-to-reopen-defying-the-advice-of-coronavirus-experts/ar-BB11BYiB?li=BBoPWjQ What should you use to dilute it instead of water?
  6. I'm not sure about the magical properties of Moscovium. It's seems more like science fiction rather than science fact. And if Bob Lazar says he's worked with a stable form then I don't trust him. it is fascinating though, I'd never heard of the 'island of stability' before. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Materials_science_in_science_fiction#Moscovium
  7. Looks like the same thing. They found Ribose, a type of sugar found in RNA. Doesn't mention it in my link. Found another story that mentions it and also says; https://www.poandpo.com/in-the-meantime/first-extraterrestrial-protein-found-inside-meteorite-232020498/
  8. Fuck, that's fascinating and slightly terrifying at the same time.
  9. I've watched that documentary and it's pretty good actually. It didn't come across as a conspiracy theory documentary, but saying that, it is an Oliver Stone produced film. It's a shame the OP didn't want to discuss anything, could of been an interesting thread.
  10. Just a thought, but Why not try it yourself. Use a football and a beach ball. Roll them down a slope and see where they stop.
  11. It's an interesting video. Surprised to hear that science doesn't study UFO's. Can't really get my head around that to be honest. How can you not want to know what UFO's are. Especially Scientists. But it's kind of exciting if you think about it, imagine what we could learn if science really made a effort to study them. Even if they weren't aliens it would still be fascinating to find out what they are.
  12. Ok complete guess and I know your looking for someone more qualified, but surely the lighter one would go further due to more friction on the heavier one.
  13. Could it be a trick question?
  14. A bit off topic, but Tom Hanks would be the perfect lead. Apparently him and his wife have tested positive. Hope he recoverers, He's one of your greatest actors.
  15. I don't think it's that far fetched to be honest. Alot more effective than a suicide bombing. Easier to get it into a country than a bomb. Think of a 'lone wolf', catch coronavirus and just go around leaving your germs everywhere. Dont think it would be as easy or as effective as it sounds, but it does makes me wonder. 100 years till the end of humanity is a being a bit pessimistic though.
  16. Model of the 2320 hemolithin molecule after MMFF energy minimization. Top: in space-filling mode; Center: ball and stick; Bottom: enlarged view of iron, oxygen and lithium termination. White = H; orange = Li; grey = C; blue = N; red = O and green = Fe. Hydrogen bonds are shown by dotted lines.

  17. Check this out. Radiooooo.com Music from 1900-now, from anywhere in the world (almost). Just click on a decade then a country. http://radiooooo.com/# To change the song, change the mood setting- slow fast weird. It's in Beta mode so it's not perfect.
  18. FSU physicists proposed a new particle (yellow) to explain recently reported rare kaon (blue) decays to neutral pions (orange). Credit: Florida State University https://phys.org/news/2020-03-physics-subatomic-particle.html
  19. I'm not convinced. I don't think being forgetful whilst talking, especially in public, is a definite sign of cognitive decline. That video is nothing more than a blooper reel. And Walker Bragman is a journalist and cartoonist not a neurologist. Not what I would call a credible source of information.
  20. Mohamed Abdus Salam: Pakistani theoretical physicist. He won the 1979 Nobel prize with Sheldon Glashow and Steven Weinberg for their work on electroweak unification theory. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdus_Salam#Religion
  21. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeman_Dyson Freeman Dyson, best known for the Dyson sphere has died today aged 96. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/28/science/freeman-dyson-dead.html
  22. 'Is there any psychobiological benefit to throwing i the odd really simple level, that is quick to complete' Personally I would prefer the levels to get progressively harder with easier bits within the levels themselves to aid progress and encouragement. A hard level followed by an easy level followed by a hard level doesn't make much sense to me. There's a certain satisfaction completing a hard level. Maybe instead of easy, make it more fun instead. What about bonus levels? A chance to boost your points or win some goodies that can be applied to the next level. Good luck with your game.
  23. 'Your moderators are liars and thieves' He's an 'Evil Liar' actually. Not sure about the thieving though.
  24. Researchers have held individual atoms and released them to interact for the first time. Their secret weapon is a set of three optical tweezer setups to hold atoms in suspension. They made predictions about the few-body problem, but were surprised by their results. https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/amp31026792/scientists-hold-atoms-quantum-physics/?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral
