The seemingly magical EM Drive has once again been shown to generate thrust, without expelling mass like a conventional rocket drive.

Nobody knows exactly how it works; NASA suggests it's really a quantum drive that manipulates random vacuum quantum fluctuations. If so that would make me happy because that's always been one of my pet ideas for space travel!

Science as taught in elementary school: "What is the percentage of water on Earth?" (That is the totality of the question in my son's exam. No context to speak off.) The correct answer is 97%. Whatever that means. Rote memorization strikes again!

I do not buy into the paranormal tendencies, but the underlying science is amazing "Normal adults have no more than 5 % of the volume of normal brain tissue. While initially disbelieved, these observations have since been independently confirmed by clinicians."

In case you didn't know... there is a highly efficient rocket drive that is impossible according to the laws of Physics but works nonetheless (according to several independent tests run by serious people).

True story: Some reasonable-sounding company got in touch with me for a consulting gig. At some point, they asked for my fax number. I said that I do not use fax. They told me that they could not do business with me unless I have a fax. We are not going to be doing business. I am sorry... but the whole deal whereas contracts must be signed by fax... is really, really getting old.

Whatever you'd like to think, the minute we shall be able to improve future children genetically, it will get done period. You think billionaires won't go to China to have their kids' IQ boosted? Ah! The best you can hope for is to make it unaccessible for all but the elite. Next question: do you think you could ban gene therapies that improve adult's cognition,  muscle and bone strength, disease resistance.. Fat chance again! And, obviously, these technologies are coming. Just a matter of time.

"(...) with the growing aging population and increasing technological capabilities, [treating aging as a disease] is achieving an ever greater prominence. Eventually, the question whether aging should be considered “a treatable disease” may be reduced to technological capacity and semantics. While degenerative aging, that is the accumulation of structural damage, impairment of metabolic balance and functioning, may be seen as a disabling and deteriorative process that requires prevention and treatment, using advanced biomedical technology; the achievement of healthy longevity may be its cure."
