NASA is currently working on a theoretical propulsion drive which will allow humans to travel not only faster than light, but much faster. Most current proposals offer near light-speed at best, but this idea goes even further, making interstellar travel very feasible within the lifetime of a single human. It is extraordinary in the fact that it will make the universe much smaller, allowing us to reach out and physically touch our celestial neighbors. Read more…
An article from Learning Mind addresses this question by analyzing the novel Flatland. The book uses the oft-quoted illustration of 2-dimensional creatures being surprised by the interjection of 3-dimensional creatures. This example is used in many science programs, such as Through the Wormhole and The Universe, to simplify string theory and make the issue of multiple dimensions more palatable to laymen. However, I believe there are a few problems with the conclusions the author, Anna Lemind, presents from these sources. Read more…
All of those horribly inaccurate end-of-days movies don’t seem quite so ridiculous once you let the data represented in this graphic sink in. This graphic was made by NASA and represents the orbit of all of the known asteroids within our own solar system. Now compare the numerous asteroid orbits with our beloved Earth’s lone orbit which is highlighted in white.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world.
