Dr. Richard Dawkins On Education, 'Innocence of Muslims,' and Rep. Paul Broun
So.. much... wrong... with.. this.. post...
I don't even know where to begin. So I won't, because you're clearly fucking clueless.
Ask Richard Dawkins About Evolution, Religion, and Science Education
How serious of a problem do you think gender inequality is in the scientific academic world? What would you do to correct it?
You caught a lot of heat for the "Dear Muslima" episode last year. Do you feel you were misinterpreted or misrepresented? Is there anything you regret or would have said differently in retrospect?

Intelsat Signs Launch Contract With SpaceX
You're an idiot.
First, launch escape systems only work if activated prior to an explosion. It won't save the lives of astronauts after the fact, the abort has to be done prior to the catastrophic event.
Second, of course the the Space Shuttle had Launch abort system. It had "Abort to Landing Site", "Transoceanic Abort Landing", "Abort Once Around", and "Abort to Orbit". Only Abort to Orbit was used in the program (STS-51-F):
Additionally, there was equipment and flight software for crew inflight bailout:
This was not available during powered flight.

Faster-Than-Fast Fourier Transform
The point of this FFT improvement is for signals that are sparse in the frequency domain, not spatial domain. Most images _are_ sparse in frequency due to discretization during data collection.
EU Approves Unified Full Body Scanner Regulations
Do you have any evidence that it is harmful? Because I have not seen anything convincing. Let's look at some facts:
- - Frequencies used in security applications have a water penetration depth of on average 0.3mm. So any potential damage is limit to surface layers of skin.
- - A purely mathematical model suggests that photon energies involved have a potential to break bonds in the loaclized sites of the DNA helix which may interfer with RNA transcription. No practical experiments have been done to confirm this.
- - Probabilty of these photon interactions is extremely small due to the tiny photoelectric cross section of the bond sites.
- - You're body is exposed to orders of magnitude more radiation which is actually ionizing from cosmic and terestrial sources daily.

An FPS Minus the Shooting
One of the best games of the early 90s was Disney's Stunt Island. You could either just play the game as a stunt pilot or better yet was the sandbox mode where you could set up stunts, perform and film them and then edit them with sound effects and music. It was an extremely creative game.
I believe it's available as abandonware now: http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/287/Stunt+Island.html

Oxford University Tests Universal Flu Vaccine
The treatment – using a new technique and tested for the first time on humans infected with flu –
You don't give vaccines to people who are already infected. I realize that this vaccine attacks a whole class, but it's not going to be much good on a specific virus that has already infected the body.

shows the equatorial rotation velocity as 10.892 km/h. So the train would need to travel that fast to keep out of the Sun. That number is reduced by the cosine of the latitude so at 85 north, it would be just under 1 km/h.
Of course teperature cycling would be enormous. Wikipedia gives the range as [100K 700K] at the equator and [80K 380K] at 85 latitude. What material can withstand that heat expansion and remain true?
I wonder if a space station in mercury's L4 Lagrange point would be feasable? Is Mercury's L4 still withini Mercury's umbra?
