What they did is called a chosen plaintext attack, and is still damning.
Unless this paper costs less than 80 times the cost of a sheet of regular paper, it's a dumb idea. Not to mention the energy used in heating every sheet of paper you use to 120C instead of just recycling it.
Musk has gone full supervillain.
Replying to myself with one caveat: there are lots of tiny diamonds in asteroids, formed mostly by pressure in collisions involving carbonaceous objects. Different animals, but still "diamonds" in the crystallographic sense.
FWIW, there are diamonds in asteroids too.
Where did you ever get that idea? Diamonds are only formed under conditions you will find on a planetary body:
Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperature and pressure at depths of 140 to 190 kilometers (87 to 118 mi) in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to 3.3 billion years (25% to 75% of the age of the Earth).
Ain't gonna happen on an asteroid. A basic rule of thumb is that asteroids will only contain igneous materials, never sedimentary or metamorphic.
I think it's in the British Museum.
It's in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
I wonder how you're supposed to smelt it in space. Perhaps space air is flammable?
You smelt it with the uranium you mine.
Mod parent up.
I suppose you think all roads should be toll roads and your bank account is auto-charged for each one you drive on?
Sounds like an awesome idea. It's not a new one, either. Private autos impose enormous external costs on society, amounting to a hefty subsidy for car ownership. There's no reason cars shouldn't pay their way in full.
The Terrafugia Transition has a 23 gallon tank and under normal circumstances can go over 450 Miles.
The Terrafugia is a fixed-wing aircraft. Get back to us when you can do that with lift coming from ducted fans.
That's just dumb, that's just dumb because you can't make a car smart enough to navigate daily traffic with all onboard sensors.
This is exactly how Tesla does it, and while it isn't perfect, it's mostly usable and still improving. It's silly to say something is impossible when we are already most of the way there.
Parent was being ironic.
here's what happened when Airbus built a fully automated airliner (with no human inside) and have it land itself:
This was not an automated flight, and was not unmanned: there were 136 passengers on board. Three people were killed, and 34 required hospitalization. The cause was pilot error, and the flight crew was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for pulling a stupid stunt with a loaded plane.
