really 2gb? 200mhz? 256 Ram?
youd think NASA could whip out better specs than a computer i literally just use to troll and jack off.
i mean, i had to fight myself not to get that AMD threadripoer, youd think that in 2020 those nerds could launch something into space that would a 1998 emachine a run for its money
They want something that works and keep on working.
Its not there to play RedDeadRedemption II at xtreme setting.
Fun note : My old C64 and my win3.1 PC (33mHz) still works.
everthing faster I have had since them all broke within 5 to 10 years. Think my pentium III was the worst in durability.
Speed + more "flimflam" does not equal durability!
none of my computers have ever just died. They only las7ish years for me because if you give me 7 years, i will find a way to spill vodka into the top vent eventually.
>The CPU itself can withstand 200,000 to 1,000,000 rads (2,000 to 10,000 gray), temperature ranges between –55 °C and 125 °C and requires 5 watts of power. The standard RAD750 single-board system (CPU and motherboard) can withstand 100,000 rads (1,000 gray), temperature ranges between –55 °C and 70 °C and requires 10 watts of power.
These are CPUs designed to work in environments where constant radiation is slowly degrading their circuitry by knocking off electrons and diffusing atoms around.
Your "threadripoer" would be dead on arrival to Mars because of the high radiation environment along the way there.
One of the greatest challenges to getting people on Mars is getting them there without everyone getting cancer on the way, too.
well put. i redact my statements
also i know it was ripper, but until wendsday, im using an on screen keyboard
Now suddenly I am all for shipping the Wealthy there into their own private "lord of the Fly´s" society.
they're not mining buttcoins on mars you musky goober>>3604889
even a pristine processor subjected to radiation will have random bit flips (which happen even on Earth to a much lesser extent) enough to render them functionally useless
So which Mars rover would ultimately triumph in one on one combat?
I'm betting on the one with the rock vaporizing LASER weapon.https://bgr.com/2020/02/10/mars-2020-laser-video-rover/https://futurism.com/the-byte/nasa-mars-rover-laser

How about the US military spending $1.727 trillion on the F35 project?
Could have given every homeless person in the US a trailer home.
To think of a small planet could be wiped out in an instant in 4 hours.
FOUR HOURS till the end of the world….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yg1tfSe3KKU
If they had GE , Nortop Gruman and the usual monsters build those shelters also, instead of worthless chest thumbing F35 who cannot defeat brown people with $5 woth of AK47´s , the stockholders would actually have earned the same!
I plan on studding my gsd Cain out when he gets older to make a Cain 2.0. IMO, he's actually the best dog. I've planned for some time to take a female from the litter and name her Laika.
Well you know, assuming he doesn't choke on a vodka bottle lid before then and now and my liver doesn't explode.
But without the F35, those trailer homes would have been seized by the chinese to lodge their colonists after they invaded the USA. The F35 ensures continued freedom.
Elon Musk has his head in the clouds and not on the ground.
Elon Musks $100 000 Ticket to Mars: BUSTED!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tLrGsDKJiI
Japan should be laughing at Elon Musk's hyperloop, it's the biggest failure.
Musk is a charismatic Flim-flam man.
But as long as investors believe he is the new Edison and keep pouring money into a company who hardly turns a profit, he will appear successful.
the cars are crap. the hyperloop are crap. the internet satellites are total crap.
the self landing rocketsboosters are nice though but since they will weigh more due to needing fuel for landing , their payload capacity will always be low.
So…mostly Gilded crap and investors cannot stop buying. The new Steven Jobs.
There's some truth to that.
-expensive, infrastructure costs orders of magnitude more for merely a doubling of travel speed
-unnecessary, we already got maglev technology and nobody uses it
-dangerous, basically the risks of space travel (decompression), except here, on earth. also risk of implosion, one moron with a .50 cal can turn the entire hyperloop into a crushed coke can.
-physically impossible to build without major improvements in pump/seal technology, a hundred mile long vacuum tube is gonna leak allover the place
Self landing rocketsboosters:
-same problems as the Space Shuttle program. reusable rockets end up costing almost as much as a non-reusable rockets cause the engines need extensive checking and reworking after being used
-not fit for purpose, if you have a hundred million dollar payload or a manned crew, you're not gonna risk blowing up just to save ten million dollars.
Teslas are okay but their business model is too Appleesque for my tastes. They're out of their damn mind if they think I'm gonna buy a car where the heated seats are deactivated in firmware until I pay them extra. Get fucked.
Or their solar panel shitfuck thing that won't turn on without an internet connection. Yeah, I don't want my house power to depend on some shitass server that can fail any time.
>>3608815>Teslas are okay
-Terribly expensive for a car, only fit for the rich
-Poorly made, full of software and hardware bugs, low quality manufacturing
-Unsafe: battery technology is a literal fire bomb. You crash it hard enough, and the rescuers can't get to you before you burn like a roman candle
-Unsafe: spontaneous combustions
-Unsafe: Autopilot has no intelligence, bugs out and kills you
-Planned obsolescence: ECU memory cards wear, basic functions handled by consumer grade electronics that break just out of warranty, batteries that wear out in 10 years…
The more electronics a car has, the less I like them. I still drive an 86 Fiero I've had since high school, and a 2002 dakota. I'm pretty sure the Fiero hasn't had a working computer since I learned how to shit in a toilet, and I've drove it from east to west coast and back twice with no issue. Well and a broken tensioner, but that was the mechanic's fault, not from wear and tear. The only thing to ever fail on the dakota was a 12 dollar fix to the switch for 4x4, an o2 sensor, and swapping a brake line.
They wont turn many heads (other than fiero fanboys), but I've never paid more than 2k for a vehicle, and it sure what most of my friends did going out to buy a newer car that costs more than half of what an entry level house would, and is going to shit itself to the junkyard in 10 years if you're lucky.
I'd much rather have two reliable but arguably shitty vehicles, and own my own house, than be spending all my slush money on shiny car payments for the next 10 years that has no guarantee of not shitting, or getting wrecked, and suddenly becoming an expensive shitty car.
Yeah.. I get to drive rental cars a lot and get to try out all the gimmicky gadgets found in them. They're all fun and handy when working but are a huge pain to deal with when they stop.
Also– all that assisted driving shit is designed in California and doesn't know what to do in snowy/icy weather.
I especially hate the 'maybe you should take a break' alert — maybe you can go fuck yourself car computer.
But you've bragged in the past about owning a Corvette. You mean you paid less than 2k for the Corvette?
caught in another lie!
Nope, 800. I had to wrench the motor over, they thought it was dead.
so yeah, still not a liar, and a former owner of a corvette.
someone, just one person, justify my being by telling me one thing that I've lied about.
I NEED to know why and how I'm a liar, just one lie, and I'll be happy
Quit your lies, SteamThePathologicalLiar!
You would not be happy. You would just make up new lies about how radiation exposure in the military ruined your health or some such.
why am I fapping to whatever this is. fuck it I've got gallons of lube, questions that don't need answered.
Stupid sexy cargo ship
It's pretty obvious that Phobos and Deimos are asteroids that became moons of Mars.
In the really old comic strip "Buck Rogers," (not the TV show,) Earth people used Deimos to actually bomb the Martian spaceport! (They slowed it until it fell out of orbit.)
that would require tons of power that would never work. It would require a battery the size of it that would take years to recharge on solar power to work for just a few days.
just open up a portal to hell to power it
The portal would have to still shower the robot with energy, you have to not just build a portal but a 'particle fuel injection system' with many other things in between. Not to mention advanced particle management for energy retention of said charged particles. Then even start to make a giant laser to make the portal that somehow mirror images ionic fields that filter time and space between the device you have waiting on the other side. Which by the way I don't see any portal-surface charge plates that people have laying around.
China's Mars rover Zhurong poses for a photo next to its lander on June 11. Who took the picture is what I want to know. :)
Okay, actually the rover dropped a remote-controlled camera.https://www.space.com/china-mars-rover-zhurong-lander-selfie-photos
googled: places that simulate mars Russia.
Good, I wonder how much supplies he used up in the simulated environment.
None, because they don't exist. They're simulated. Just tweak the code to add more if you want.
By the way, in case of any confusion, the boy they are talking about is the one with the arrow next to him. :-)
Earth too. Obviously. Otherwise there wouldn't be such a race for space colonization of a "second Earth". Twice as much trouble.
Up until last year I'd have agreed with you.
Nowadays… hmm… living on a barren planet with ten other people does sound like a good idea. No government there.
The only thing I'd miss is the wildlife here. And cute doggos. Everything else can go straight into the trash.
You would be stuck eating weird foods fyi and no sex or at least slim pickings theres a benefit to more people than getting away from them actually are you fully prepared to give all sense of self up for the sake of the human race you loathe so much that shit doesnt die off unless our species dies off so what will you do?
>>3628035This is why people don't talk to you, Cobalt.
No, I stand by it.
At the rate things are going, I'd be better off living on another planet just to escape the government tyranny on Earth. And my life doesn't revolve around sex, I'm not that hollow.
>>3628231>This is why people don't talk to you, Cobalt.
I thought it is because he is insane faggy tranny.
No its because I have the nerve to shove my words back into their faces no one likes being told off specially by someone they look down on it brings a major sense of self shame on themselves.
Any other excuse you have is just pitiful this is how the human mind works and no one likes being talked back to its in our nature
You still probably dont get it those were small examples basically the rate things are going you wouldn't be doing anything for the human race but working against it. Fyi theres a feasible number to ensure survival of the species specially because of external factors which hinder us in smaller groups we require more than 10 people in fact you would have to live amongst 200k people or so. And your 10 number even if exaggeration by example still wouldn't help you as you need to be capable of having the knowledge to run and do everything your life depends on and that will still require infrastructure so you would still need more than 100 people to keep you alive permanently
None of the people you "tell off" even notice it, because nobody can understand what the fuck you're trying to say.
The Romans used to stage events in their Coliseums and Arenas that were hugely popular, they trained animals to rape human women. And not just any animals, they imported species such as bears, monkeys, lions, apes, and zebras to keep the crowd from getting bored. From all accounts, the animals didn't need much training and got the idea of what they were supposed to do really quick.
They are probably hinting that without the dark ages, the romans would be on Mars already with coluseums where tentacle aliens imported from Alpha Centauri rape people.
No one will ever produce those giant space telescopes, it's taken 30 years just to get the comparitively tiny James Webb telescope ready for launch at a cost overrun of $10 Billion dollars.
just need to autostream vr space helmets in peoples sleep
bet the Chinese will build and launch a larger so fast it will make peoples heads spin.
looks like a tampon ad
NASA surveillance in YOUR vagina? More likely than you'd think.

Didn't they talk about the alignment taking months? Are they ahead of schedule on this?

If half life is referred to a video game and a decaying particle.
I got one; what about second life that is referred to a virtual world simulation and anew product?
did you spend alot of time on that?
This is a hostile invasion from the planet Coolfoodz!
Just kidding. Anyway, transgenic space lettuce is a thing now. And it's got what bones crave! Apparently.>In a new study, researchers from University of California, Davis (UC Davis) created an experimental strain of lettuce that produces a medication that contains a fragment of human parathyroid hormone (PTH) peptide. PTH is naturally produced by the parathyroid gland and helps stimulate bone growth, among other functions. >The researchers think that this new strain of "space lettuce" could help astronauts to maintain their bone density while they are in space. This new study was presented at the spring meeting of the American Chemical Society.https://www.space.com/space-lettuce-experiment-bone-loss-astronauts
Would you try the space lettuce?>>3653662
Cream, of all the mensches on this site, you're one of them. Just thought you should know.
Can I take the time it takes to be inert for $500 Jim
Would eating this space lettuce all throughout your childhood make you taller?
I'd rather eat space lettuce than manlet organic lettuce.
second life for plebs. lol. graduate to using xeno colonies to farm for your own personal fuckbangs.
I remember seeing that. I imagine food that's been in actual outer space would pick up particles that give space its characteristic odor, imparting the food with space seasoning. The smell of objects that have been in outer space pick up a distinct smell that's been described as smelling like like burnt steak, welding fumes, and spent gunpowder.>>3653763
It can help increase bone density. But I don't think it can increase height.
it can happen instantly because half life is not garunteed unless it is…which it isnt…ever…not naturally anyway. you have to go thru the whole life cycle of the particle to technically experience full heat death by the time any half life occurs its basically a replaced particle "or a dumbed down version of itself that its not the same". Imagine losing vital organs slowly until you are nothing left. Lol. There is no garuntee they go out one at a time either.
No one mentioned the largest marsquakes ever recorded that made the news about a week ago?https://www.space.com/largest-marsquakes-insight-lander-detection
"Not only are they the largest and most distant events by a considerable margin, [the event dubbed] S1000a has a spectrum and duration unlike any other event previously observed," lead author Anna Horleston, a seismologist at the University of Bristol in the U.K., said in a statement released by the Seismological Society of America, which published the new research. "They truly are remarkable events in the Martian seismic catalog."
it is. A radio-image of Sagittarius A.
Impressive since it is 1000 times lighter, thus much smaller than the central blackhole of M87
Behold, our first glimpse of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our galaxy. The scientists at the press conference mentioned making higher resolution images and even videos of it in the future. Einstein's general relativity confirmed again.https://eventhorizontelescope.org/blog/astronomers-reveal-first-image-black-hole-heart-our-galaxy
So basically everything gravitates and rotates around giant Assholes.
Somehow that explains a lot of things. In a lot of different fields. In fact all of them.
Herp Derp let's look at the giant death ball that everyone tells us not to look at.

The SLS is Outdated. Why Does it Exist?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0waPJXaZgEg
The reason why Nasa is launching outdated rockets… Gather Fail points Data on how aged old rockets work if so that they could create better newer rockets. Old stuff must be tested… if failed or succeed gather data on it's materials. Nasa is simply hungry for Data on their outdated equipment Their failure is their key to success.
It'll be fine, they are duct taping the tank leaks. Add a few sprays of WD-40 on the rustiest parts and it'll fly to the moon for sure.
Maybe in October it will finally work.
I could get into that. Unlike most cults it seems harmless. atleast compared to ISIS, Scientology and Apple.
I've never once seen a cheese moon.
Its like that black and blue dress, I see this as blue, and much to a lot of other people's surprise they see it as yellow.
Most powerful rocket ever successfully launched.
I always wondered how Venus would look today if it had replaced the orbit of Mars a few billion years ago.
We could actually have 2 fully developed and habitable planets in our solar system.
It might have taken more than that. I read one hypothesis where Venus's very slow rotation didn't provide a magnetic field strong enough to prevent solar wind from ripping away hydrogen in the upper atmosphere.
Also, because of slow rotation, magma couldn't circulate and remove heat from the core as easily as it does on Earth. The result is heat builds up until there is a periodic cataclysmic resurfacing of Venus.
And the lack of a large moon will have a seriously bad effect on the stability of the planetary axis orientation also no tidal effect on, presumably , early oceans and then maybe no life at least not as we understand what it took to make it happen.
The more you add up what it took to make life happen on earth AND having a stable planet in th right zone around a stable star with no major meteoric impacts the for last billions of years (they would outmass Yucatan impact millions of times) then it is actually very unlikely to find advanced life in the universe.
The biggest joke in the universe would be us not understanding LIFE is the rarest most valuable commodity ever, while we snuff it out so easily for a few dollars more.
Long before the hit movie THE MARTIAN, Paramont Pictures made the theatrical film ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS, (which I STRONGLY) suspect the author and producers of THE MARTIAN stole the concept and idea from.
Starring Adam West (Batman '66) in a serious role, this movie can be watched entirely FREE… (no ads, no pop-ups, no cookies, no sign-up or login, no tracking) at THE INTERNET ARCHIVE.https://archive.org/details/RobinsonCrusoeOnMarsEn
This movie is scientifically based on what was thought to be known about the planet Mars at the time, (1964). Technicolor, and full-screen mode available in controls.
LOVE THAT RETRO TECH that is shown throughout the movie! I would be interested to know what you think about this movie.
I love that movie. But then, I'm a sucker for any movie which has astronauts taking shelter in Martian caves.
And by Martian caves you mean Martian P****´s ?!
Yes the only way to stop an attack from one of those creatures is to throw socks.
Take your helmet of and explode in a gory mess.
That will scare it off.
And having enormous boobs and fake eyelashes. Are you blind or just retarded?
Retarded then. Thanks for clearing that up.

How much is the asteroid Ryugu worth?
82.76 billion U.S. dollars
The economically valuable materials present on the asteroid Ryugu have a total estimated value of 82.76 billion U.S. dollars, and is estimated to have a profit of 30.08 billion U.S. dollars once the costs of mining are taken into consideration.Feb 3, 2023
When the Three Gorges Dam was built, 39 trillion kilograms of water from the Yangtze River built up behind it to 175 meters above sea level. This altered the Earth’s moment of inertia changed ever so slightly, causing the rotation to move more slowly. This is the same principle behind why figure skaters tuck in their arms to spin faster.
NASA has calculated that the dam only slows the rotation by 0.06 microseconds, which is six hundredths of a millionth of a second. Our planet’s rotation speed actually fluctuates fairly often, as it can be influenced by earthquakes, the moon, and the climate change-induced movement of the North Pole.
"Rapid unscheduled disassembly."
>>3700922> the now-retired InSight lander.
Yeah, right. InSight was forcibly retired by dust building up on its solar panels until it finally stopped responding completely.
I could totally see that happening and not put any rage on the guy rocking that setup. My friend gave me several UPS's and a two nursing tough books that got tossed, because the batteries started to die, and it was cheaper for the hospital to just ditch them than to deal with putting new batteries in them.
Being homeless and ending up with some low grade intel core tough book bs that needs a power cord to turn on makes total sense. We have this idea that poor/homeless people don't deserve ok/nice things. That is a super toxic view point.
uninterruptible power supply units, I used the wrong acronym.
One is technically a passive uninterruptible psu, the other 3 are trueblood upsu's. I replaced 4 of his batteries with cheap ass chinese knockoffs of ATP's super expensive version, in exchange for 3 of his find.
I only mention it because I just had to re-replace the lead batteries and my mom was all "oh god you cant throw those in the trash!" I very much disagreed, and ended up giving her the broken deal lead acid batteries for "proper disposal." whatever.
