Fusion breakthrough as China's "artificial sun" reaches 100 million degrees
Why I am so against abortion
I seen this 100 times
I remember one time hiding out in a hotel room from my wife , stepping out for a smoke, running into this black dude from Philadelphia and him saying he wanted to go to the museum..
So I took him .(a bro date I guess)
It was fun as hell . A white dude and a black guy just enjoying chicago..
Ordinarily, it takes coral reefs between 25 to 75 years to reach sexual maturity. This means that it can take up to 6 years just to plant 600 coral – but Vaughan’s process of breaking up corals for reproduction, which is called “micro-fragmenting”, helps them to grow 40 times faster than they do in the wild.

'Flying-V' plane is unveiled which is named after a GUITAR | Daily Mail Online
It has the wingspan of existing planes but is shaped like a guitar, with the nose flaring backwards diagonally to create the striking V-shape. It is believed to use 20 per cent less fuel, be more aerodynamic and still be able to carry up to 314 passengers
A project to 3D-print bulky components in space rather than bring them up there has collected a $73.7 million contract from NASA to demonstrate the technique in space. Archinaut, a mission now several years in development from Made In Space, could launch as soon as 2022.
Once finished, this pair of 32-foot solar arrays would theoretically generate some five times the power that a spacecraft that size would normally pull in. Because spacecraft are almost without exception power-starved systems, having more watts to use or store for the orbital equivalent of a rainy day would certainly be welcome.

LightSail 2 has successfully deployed its solar sails. Shortly after 12:00 pm PST (19:00 UTC) The Planetary Society tweeted that the sails were deployed, and that the spacecraft was sailing with sunlight.
A solar sail utilizes the momentum of the photons coming from the Sun, much the same way that a sailboat captures the energy in the wind. The light sail doesn't capture the photons. The photons bounce off of the reflective surface and propel the sail. It's lightweight, simple technology that has great potential.
