The Dumbass Lounge>Science is Cool....
Fish 09:43 PM 05-21-2012
This is a repository for all cool scientific discussion and fascination. Scientific facts, theories, and overall cool scientific stuff that you'd like to share with others. Stuff that makes you smile and wonder at the amazing shit going on around us, that most people don't notice.

Post pictures, vidoes, stories, or links. Ask questions. Share science.

The concept of a craft scooting all over the cosmos while farting nuclear detonations is funny, though

I think that concept has been around for a long time. I remember reading about it in college. We were much more into nuclear explosions then.

Not that I expect anyone to take the 10 hours to watch it all, but this YouTube series on the history of science is fascinating. It's all stuff you've probably heard bits and pieces of, but it's fun to rapidly run through all of the crazy twists and turns that "science" has made over the millenia.

Probably my favorite thing about it is that it points out all the ridiculous stuff people used to believe (e.g., the four elements are earth, air, fire, and water), but by walking through it historically you can see how they got there and the logic of it.

Got it on the second try. It's definitely a slow-and-steady kind of deal. I think it took me probably 10 minutes to get it right.

But that probably makes it a good simulator. I think the real deal takes more like 30 minutes.

This was fantastic. Got it on the third try.

Just to make sure people know (since it's otherwise in the Space Exploration thread), the manned launch is happening in two weeks.

If a lay history of science is your bag, few have done it better than Bill Bryson

I almost mentioned that book. Also, the James Burke series Connections that told stories about the history of science by showing how one advancement led to another which led to another in sometimes unexpected ways.

That show was incredible.

My local library had this for free on audio book. It was incredibly well written.

Cool. I'm going to have to check this out. It'll probably give me some good ammo for those who ridicule me because I'm able to see that the ideas that that man came from an ape, that life came from non-life and that the Earth is billions of years old are all laughable non-science. And that those falsehoods, like the items in the article, will be eventually be proven wrong as well.
