Satellite Captures Glowing Plants From Space

stooo Re:I don't think it's 1% (40 comments)

it's simple : Direct sunlight is 1000W/m.
Let's say a tree is 1m direct to sun. In nighttime, it would emit 10w over it's surface. That's not realistic.

stooo Re:yea but (562 comments)

>>This is an attack by a foreign power. Laws regarding war apply.

What are you talking about ?
Who attacked ?
Sony left their servers with no security patches, open for anyone since years.
They simply don't have "computer suecurity" on their list. They're irresponsible.
You can blame canada lla you want... err, no that was North Korea.

What Would Have Happened If Philae Were Nuclear Powered?

stooo Re:I'm quite surprised it wasn't (523 comments)

>> I had the mistaken belief that all space probes / landers were nuke-powered.
No.
On a lander, you need short term peak power >> batteries
On a probe, you need long term avwerage power >> batteries + solar _or_ batteries + RTG
