  1. A new attempt to find the universe's age revealed troubling flaws. https://futurism.com/hubble-broke-understanding-universe
  2. I wad thinking about Ion lifters today as those youtube videos show it only going up like 10 feet in the air with hardly any weight. That if a craft was to lift 400 pounds or 1000 pounds the power requirements would be huge. And that probably why NASA and companies stop doing research into it. Also there is no air in space so it would not work in space.
  3. There are some other similar ion lifters and some that are really big like 10 feet by 10 feet. 😨 But I guess thrust is too low for it to be any use? If I remember there was an article on some research into this in the past. But most of those youtube videos on ion lifters have power cable hooked up to this. I have not seen youtube video of this ion lifter having its own power source on it they have a power cable hooked up to it like lot of those videos. So not sure but power may be problem?
  4. From what I understand when the ionocraft or ion lifter is turned on, the corona wire becomes charged with high voltage. When the corona wire reaches approximately 30 kV, it causes the air molecules nearby to become ionised by stripping their electrons from them. As this happens, the ions are repelled from the anode and attracted towards the collector, causing the majority of the ions to accelerate toward the collector. The current is carried by a corona discharge (and not a tightly-confined arc) means that the moving particles diffuse into an expanding ion cloud, and collide frequent
  5. Well from what I understand quantum computers operate on 0s and 1s and both and being both at the same time. So this opens up big problem how could data be both there and not there? From what I understand computers today use 1s and 0s , but quantum computers use 1s, 0s and can be both 1 and 0 at the same time? So how can data be both 1 and 0 at the same time so data is there and not there?
  6. Well I don’t think people should be obsessing over it and people should get on with their life but people who have billions of dollars and governments that start wars and stop spending trillions of dollars on the wars and put it in say education, healthcare, research and building hospitals and stuff. The problem is the human brain is wired to be way too optimistic. Some of that is good as we don’t want people panicking. But If I was Bill Gates having billions of money and now his age putting 98% of his money into schools, education, healthcare, research, labs and building hospitals a
  7. Well I think part of the problem is the world we are in today people are hooked on watching TV, watching movies , playing video games, sports and more entertainment and pleasure. This keeps people so busy they have little time to say oh I may die from this or that. It also some thing you can’t see or touch like you see in news like a house fire, crime, car crash or plane crash or building exploding. But cancer or heard disease would not make news. We spend billions of dollars on entertainment and buying things. And rich people that have billions are drown in on the way too optimisti
  8. So I was looking at this web site today showing odds in person life time some one dying. I’m shocked most people fear fire, Motor-vehicle crash and airplane crash , yet people do not show the same fear over cancer and heart disease and they have a way higher chance of dying. Looking at the table. Motor-vehicle crash 1 in 106 So if you have 106 people that live on your street one person will die in car crash in their life time. Fire or smoke 1 in 1,399 Well if there is 1,399 people that live on your street one person will die in their life time. Choking o
  9. Well it was the poster above who said politicians should be an intellectual. I said they could well love to read lots and lots of books on many subjects like biology, medicine, physics, law and economics so on and still be risk taker or do stupid things. That just because you a intellectual does not mean you good at understanding cause and effect and analysis risk.
  10. You can be intellectual person that loves to read lots and lots of books and be really knowledgeable in math, biology, economics, medicine, Physics, culture, law and government so on and still be risk taker or not understand cause and effect. So I don’t think making law that only intellectual people can set up businesses or be in government will help.
  11. Well delete that post above I don’t think logical reasoning test has any thing to do with risk taking and cause and effect. A logical reasoning test measures your ability or aptitude to reason logically. Generally, logical reasoning tests measure non-verbal abilities. You must, through logical and abstract reasoning, extract rules, analogies and structures which you subsequently use to find a correct answer among a set of possible options. Not sure if logical reasoning will help, I don’t think it has any thing to do with this thread. As this thread is more about risk and cause an
  12. Well I’m not sure I could be getting confused with logical reasoning test. A logical reasoning test measures your ability or aptitude to reason logically. https://www.123test.com/logical-reasoning-test/
  13. Well from what I understand there are different IQ tests. The spatial IQ or Spatial intelligence is ability to visualize with the mind's eye the visualization of objects from different angles and space. This IQ is well mostly useful for construction and engineering. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spatial_intelligence_(psychology) That you may score high on spatial IQ test but low on other IQ tests or score high on other IQ test but low on spatial IQ. You also have Verbal intelligence useful for problem solving and abstract reasoning. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verb
  14. Why is it not a must that all politicians and business leaders have to have IQ of 100 and above. Bill out money to big banks and big businesses is socialism for the rich hardly capitalism under capitalism bad business should go for bankruptcy. And the free market will taker off making new businesses to do well. Now a pandemic like Covid, war, fire or disaster may be? And I use the word here may be? But they still should be required to have some money not businesses or banks living on the edge not having any money or cannot even shut down for short time. When I gone to school my
  15. Well the above post explains it and sadly the human body is more complex as lot of popular science like to point out the holy grail by year 2050 may be we may have lab on chip a small microchip that looks at the blood and protein and can diagnose. And most likely that never will come to be if it is 50 years from now or 100 years from now that just the way human body built. It is sad but the way the human is built things like lab on chip will alway be scfi. May be the medical tricorder will have better luck in 50 or 100 years from now.
