‘I Don’t Believe In Science,’ Says Flat-Earther Set To Launch Himself In Own Rocket
What an idiot. Perhaps he doesn’t believe in gravity either. I’m betting he backs out.
UPDATE: Looks like he’s getting ready to back out…
A flat-Earther’s plan to launch himself in a homemade rocket just hit a speed bump
I must admit, I am a bit confused by this whole “flat-earth” thing. How can you disbelieve something that is so easy to prove? Science isn’t a belief system. It’s all evidence based. Belief never enters into it. It doesn’t need to because it’s about proof.

This conversation touches on many of the things I believe personally. What do you think?
Okay so one of my fun facts this week was that humans kill a million sharks each year, but sharks only kill about six humans per year. Well, I was wrong. Humans kill 100 MILLION sharks each year.

Wow this is beautiful. Stormchaser Mike Olbinski chased massive storms across the American southwest to create the latest installment of his Monsoon series.
Could early hominids have been walking around in Germany 9.7 million years ago? I doesn’t seem likely, and it’s a bit much to derive from two teeth.
Here is the slightly “fringe” article (warning: ad clogged website)…
9.7 Million-Year-Old Teeth Found in Germany Belong to Hominin Only Known To Have Existed in Africa 4 Million Years Later
And here is a response from National Geographic…
Ancient Teeth Found in Europe Belonged to Mystery Primate
This is so cool. I wish we could capture it, or at least analyze a sample from it.
Researchers observe the first known interstellar comet
This is so cool.
Scientists witness huge cosmic crash, find origins of gold
UPDATE! Veritasium has released a great video outlining the importance of this event.
Weird. Adding asphalt to lithium batteries decreased their charge time to just a few minutes, and they lasted longer.
Asphalt helps lithium batteries charge faster
You don’t want to ever be this dumb. BTW, this is why I don’t watch QVC.
I for one, welcome our new robot overlords…

Odds are Benedict Cumberbatch can’t do a good American accent though.
SpaceX has teased a photo of the full spacesuit and, of course, it looks cool.
Feed spiders carbon nanotubes and get webbing that could hold a human. Wow!
Scientists have spiders producing enhanced web that can hold a human
Nanomachines are microscopic robots that can perform surgery from inside a patients body. They have long been thought to be an effective tool against cancer. Now we are getting close.

I have discussed my adventure trip to Kentucky to see this year’s eclipse. Here are two videos of the event I found interesting…
First, a video from on of my favorite Youtube channels, Veritasium.
Secondly, a video from another favorite channel,
Smarter Every Day. Note, they worked the math out to do this
by themselves .
