Comment Said about every film on IMDB (Score 1) 168

"Worst movie I've seen in my life"

"You just didn't understand it"

"Most boring movie ever made"

etc., etc....

However, in between, there were a lot of great postings about soundtracks, directors, subplots, scenes, that only true fans that had seen the film several times would have known or noticed. I'll miss these postings. Without them, I have no reason to use IMDB.

Submission + - Beer on the Moon!... (ucsd.edu)

braindrainbahrain writes: ... well sort of. Students at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering are finalists in a competition held by TeamIndus, one of the teams with a launch contract to send a spacecraft to the Moon as part of the Google Lunar XPRIZE challenge.

Their proposed experiment will test the viability of yeast on the moon—and result in a freshly brewed batch of beer. Understanding how yeast behaves on the moon isn’t just important for brewing beer in space. It’s also important for the development of pharmaceuticals and yeast-containing foods, like bread.

Comment X-Ray Navigation (Score 1) 58

OK, I get the part about X-ray comms. What I don't get is the need to deploy an X-ray beacon for the satellites to navigate. After all, there are already natural sources that can be used. The technology for using these sources is credible enough that real money and real hardware is being developed for it.

Submission + - Radioactive Boy Scout Passes Away (tributes.com) 2

braindrainbahrain writes: David Hahn, who achieved some notoriety as a teenage boy scout with his attempt to build a nuclear reactor in his garden shed, has passed away. His "reactor" ended when the EPA declared his backyard as a Superfund cleanup site due to hazardous levels of radiation. His story was captured in a Harper's magazine article, and later the book "The Radioactive Boy Scout" by Ken Silverstein. It was also a Slashdot topic at the time.

The cause of death was not given.
