Qr Bbpost I will be wrong, though, if it turns out that fusion can never become practical.

And that would be a super depressing future to live in.

I'd think we'll have controllable fusion within 50 years.

General global warming / climate chage discussion

IPCC refers to global changes, which is what's most relevant for global warming.  In my region the sea level is dropping by about 50 cm per century. The bay that I swam in as a kid does seem shallower now (there is not much tidal difference).  It has likely more to do with that I'm taller now than ...

General global warming / climate chage discussion

7239 We can't rule out the possibility that there is a source of energy that we don't yet know about, though While that is true, it seems like today there really is a deeper understanding of the universe, compared to past generations.  If there were some other form of energy to tap into, given the ...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

cGYKCTFIZLI I saw an old X-files episode recently which I had missed when it originally aired, where a politician was injected with nanotechnology and then a russian spy was able to flat line him and then bring him back and told him if certain legislation didn't go through that he wouldn't come bac...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Of course! :) Going back to hemineglect: here are a couple good videos about it with some interviews of patients with the syndrome.  The demonstration where the interviewer asks which finger he moves is remarkable.  It is not as simple as a problem of vision, it's a problem of how the mind thinks a...

Science and Astronomy Questions

6509 Hemineglect? Never heard of it- but just breaking down the term, does it have to do with some senses atrophying because we don't use them as much when we get older?  Just a shot in the dark lol. No, it's way weirder, and usually is a result of damage to the brain.  A person with hemineglect &q...

6640 what kind of graphics memory usage are you seeing with your card (I assume you use a program like EVGA Precision, which is what I have, as well as MSI Afterburner.)  How often do you get over 2 GB VRAM usage at 1080 P resolution or over 95% graphics card usage? I play in a 1500x850 windows so ...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

6731 I have a bad feeling that this topic is going to turn into a political flamewar... It won't because I won't allow it.  Anyone going to insults or raging is going to be taking a 7 day break from posting.  You and Watshisname (quite literally lol) are two of the most balanced people I've encount...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

A-L-E-X , conspiracies are real, they happen all the time, governments and businesses try to hide and cover stuff up.  There are dozens of cases where governments and businesses have even invented conspiracies to redirect attention somewhere else.  When it comes to uncovering the truth it is best t...

6638 Do you play with exposure similar to how you would with a camera? I adjust everything.  I change stars, thermals, exposure, LOD, though in the case of the pictures of Mars or other planets I just do LOD 2 and use auto exposure. 6638 Is there an auto setting which will automatically give you th...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

That's a good point -- we did rather assume to take this to be breathable for humans.  But if we generalize it to be breathable for any lifeform then it's very difficult to know what the limitations are, or what to search for. At various times in the history of Earth, its atmospheric composition wa...

davidrn , play with settings for the most part.  Once I have good exposure and color settings I put the app in 4k and take a screenshot. This is what I've been asking too.  Do you play with exposure similar to how you would with a camera?  Is there an auto setting which will automatically give you ...
