Howdy CE5; just got through watching a youtube video where they were discussing CE4's research project's research into how to stop an Alien abduction. Was wondering if you had heard about them? Thought it was pretty interesting. :thinking:
These outwardly christian posers have obviously not read or understood Ezekiel, or several other passages in the very Bible they are grifting.

Guess that'd be better for the religion thread - this one is more about science ;)

Confused, intriguing but confusing, please explain. :thinking:

I'm not really sure what that type of laser would be good for - perhaps something like nuclear fusion tests? Or perhaps testing material properties for things to be used in nuclear reactors and such, although i suppose neutron bombardment would be the bigger issue there.

Some sort of gamma imaging/spectroscopy I'd imagine?

On another note, Falcon Heavy late December, get hype!

Elon already put it on the sideburner and spoiled the hype by announcing the BFR.:crackup:

The world's governments totally will go for using a crazy big rocket in place of conventional planes...
They totally didn't decide it was a terrible idea like 50 years ago. :whistle:

Seeing two boosters land at once will be something else though! :p

Yep. I really don't think saying you'll build a bigger, better rocket is really something you should do before your current big rocket has even been proven. Oh well, that's what happens when silicon valley gets into rockets.

For context:

The problem with this so called economic recovery is most people haven't seen any increase in their personal income. In fact, the middle class is set to suffer more with a passage of the tax plan still rolling around congress. The only real winners will be the rich....as is usually the case.

Well on the news of the tax bill AT&T just gave 200,000 employees a 1000.00 Christmas bonus, that's 200 Million dollars straight to the stagnant pay workers, So did Boeing and a couple of major banks.

You won't see that news on cnn.

Well, $1000 is not quite enough for a space holiday yet ;)

Giving money to the middle class actually is not a bad thing though, as they are quite likely to spend that money relatively quickly and in large part on domestic services and goods.

It's better than what's going on in europe at least, here they're creating money like crazy (due to quantitative easing etc) but none of that goes into the -real- economy. In just ends up in increasing stock prices as interest rates are zero and from stocks you at least get the dividends even if the price does not increase. The real risk is losing value when the bubble bursts, reducing your assents on paper by a huge amount... but you will still retain your share percentage in the company and will still collect dividends despite the lower valuation.
