Banks and finance companies don't make anything tangible either, yet get government bailouts in the hundreds of millions, if not billions.

Too bad they wern't 'too big to fail' while making nothing.

Let's be honest.. when you look at Africa and Rome 2000 years ago, now look at Africa and Rome today, the only change in Africa is that now they have guns.

I'm guessing the people using re-cpatcha for science are getting a little frustrated with all of the unidentified scanned words coming back as "nigger". This isn't a troll, try it and you will see it works.

When will people finally understand that there's a difference between communism/socialism and fascism/dictatorship.

You can have a democratic socialist system, you can have a despot ruled capitalist system.

New Zealand rocket buffs catch Nasa's eye

lul_wat lul_wat writes  |  more than 4 years ago

lul_wat (1623489) writes "Beck told the Herald on Sunday that Rocket Lab had received a research grant from the US Office of Naval Research to study new rocket propulsion methods and fuels.
Auckland science geek Peter Beck and Christchurch space lover Mark Rocket (who changed his surname by deed poll from Stevens) were the brains behind the 6m-long, 60kg rocket which reached an altitude of more than 100km and a speed of about 5000km/h from a paddock on Great Mercury Island."

Italian amputee gets robot hand for a month

lul_wat (1623489) writes "http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10613258

An Italian who lost his left forearm in a car crash was successfully linked to a robotic hand, allowing him to feel sensations in the artificial limb and control it with his thoughts, scientists said this week.

During a one-month experiment conducted last year, 26-year-old Pierpaolo Petruzziello felt like his lost arm had grown back again, although he was only controlling a robotic hand that was not even attached to his body."

US Nuclear Space spy could face death penalty

lul_wat lul_wat writes  |  about 5 years ago

lul_wat (1623489) writes "WASHINGTON — The Justice Department could seek the death penalty for a US space scientist accused of attempted espionage.

Stewart Nozette, 52, was ordered held without bond Thursday after prosecutors said he was a "walking safe deposit box" of government secrets who claimed to have already passed some of them to Israel.

Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson decided there was too much of a flight risk for Nozette to be free while he awaits trial."
