Chinese Moon Rover Says an Early Goodnight

cyfer2000 Re:Brief translation from Chinese (284 comments)

There is a Chang'e 4 mission as a back up of this mission. The Chang'e 4 was originally planned for 2015, but it is possible they may make it happen this year if the Chang'e 3 fails.

I heard from unconfirmed source that the problem was mechanical. The solar panels of the "Jade Rabbit" can fold and can act as covers to prevent heat from escaping. One of the solar panels failed to fold.

China: The Next Space Superpower

cyfer2000 Re:another GPS? (250 comments)

I hope you realized the main purpose of Global Position System was sadly military related. These 7 entities are those who need/want to have their own GPS system for the military advantage.

Satanists Propose Monument At Oklahoma State Capitol Next To Ten Commandments

cyfer2000 Re:Offensive (1251 comments)

4 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it."

I like it very much, but it offended my last boss somehow.

U.S. Government: Sorry, We're Closed

cyfer2000 Re:Fucking idiots (1532 comments)

So you think USDA should be growing crops, raising cows, instead of supporting farmers? Do you mean the federal government should be doing all the work, instead of sitting in the back doing some supporting job like study how do preserve soil, testing the effect of pesticide, and letting market and individual figure out how to run a farm?

And DOT should own and run all those trucks, trains, airplanes and ships.

And DOE should own run all the power plants...

Isn't this socialism?
