Ring World

Impact armor, a flexible form of clothing that hardens instantly into a rigid form stronger than steel when rapidly deformed (for example, by the impact of a projectile such as a bullet) – a technology which is quickly approaching reality; … Continue reading

The Continuing Saga?

It was Socrates’ turn to look puzzled. Oh, wake up. You know what chaos is. Simple deterministic dynamics leading to irregular, random-looking behavior. Butterfly effect. That stuff. Of course, I know that, Socrates said in irritation. No, it was the … Continue reading

Monster of the Milky Way

Lubos Motl, it does not have to be “ten billion souls” that we find of just one the same. How many scientists do you know that refer to Plato? If enough is captured as “part of the original,” then why … Continue reading
