    Likely a high nickel content.

    Anyone else notice they always find these things by accident, never when they're actually looking for them?

    Mars "Perseverance" launch July 20, 2020...added twist a helicopter is hitching a ride on the rover...a $500 million dollar expedition to explore the red planet.

    So we're no longer limited to line-of-sight from the rover. Sweet.

    Mind boggled.
    "A theory that energy can be created by throwing objects into a black hole has been proved by scientists more than 50 years after it was first proposed.
    A team of researchers at the University of Glasgow's School of Physics and Astronomy set out to validate the 1969 work by British physicist Roger Penrose.
    They used sound waves in an attempt to endorse the 'extremely odd physics' caused when you drop an object in a black hole and then split the object in two.
    He theorised the energy generated from the recoil action of retrieving one half of the object could be stored and used to power entire worlds.
    Scientists have been finding ways to test the theory for decades, after Penrose claimed the engineering challenges to test it could only be carried out 'by an advanced, possibly alien, civilisation'. "

    whatever happened to Teslas' research after he died...
    that man was a genius.
    who got all his research after he died?

    The papers & research that were in his room when he died in 1943,were gone through by the US government. Beforebeing released to his nephew, who sent them on to Belgrade. Where the now reside in a museum dedicated to Tesla.

    What, if anything, the US government kept has always been a matter of speculation. Although several items were known to be missing from what was handed over to Tesla's nephew.

    found this on wiki:
    'Two days later the Federal Bureau of Investigation ordered the Alien Property Custodian to seize Tesla's belongings.[25] John G. Trump, a professor at M.I.T. and a well-known electrical engineer serving as a technical aide to the National Defense Research Committee, was called in to analyze the Tesla items, which were being held in custody."

    was JGTrump related to the current master of the universe?
    electric, baby

    As Carl Sagan once noted, "Every time you look up at the sky, every one of those points of light is a reminder that fusion power is extractable from hydrogen and other light elements, and it is an everyday reality throughout the Milky Way Galaxy."

    Could starships use cold fusion propulsion?

    how exciting, the current times.
    hoping news will be less polarizing.

    A bit scary.
    "Earth's magnetic field can change 10 times faster than previously thought, according to new research, almost 100 times faster than current changes.
    UK scientists have simulated the history of the swirling flow of iron 1,740 miles below the planet’s surface, spanning the last 100,000 years.
    Motion of the liquid iron creates the electric currents that power the field, which helps guide navigational systems, shield us from harmful extra terrestrial radiation and hold our atmosphere in place.
    In partnership with researchers in California, they've demonstrated that these rapid changes are associated with local weakening of the magnetic field.
    The magnetic field is constantly changing and satellites provide new means to measure and track its current shifts."

    'A gigantic stretch of the universe dubbed the 'South Pole Wall' containing hundreds of thousands of galaxies was 'found hiding in plain sight' by astronomers.
    The wall had remained undetected until now because large parts of it were hidden from Earth's view by the bright Milky Way galactic centre and dust surrounding it.
    The wall is one of the largest cosmic structures ever found, according to Paris-Saclay University researchers, whose worked involved creating 3D maps of the universe.
    Within these maps - that focused on an area behind the Milky Way Galaxy known as the Zone of Galactic Obscuration - the team discovered the South Pole Wall.
    This is a wall of galaxies stretching 1.4 billion light years across - roughly eight sextillion miles - and when seen from Earth is below the south pole.
    The Milky Way is part of a local galactic cluster that is 520 million light years across, this is about half the size of the South Pole Wall or about three sextillion miles.
    Whereas Pluto is just 3.7 billion miles from the Sun or 0.0006 light years.
    It was found about half a billion light-years away from the Earth by researchers using a mapping technique that involves measuring the 'peculiar velocity of galaxies'.
    This process takes into account the redshift - that is the speed at which an object is receding from Earth - as well as the motion of galaxies around one another.
    Study lead, Daniel Pomarede, said this method let them detect hidden mass that is gravitationally influencing how galaxies move - including dark matter.
    Dark matter makes up the bulk of matter in the universe but it emits no light
    and so can only be detected by the gravitational pull it exerts on nearby objects.
    By measuring the way this hidden mass interacts gravitationally they were able to map regions of space otherwise invisible from the Earth.
    Using computer models the team were able to plot the three dimensional distribution of matter in and around the Zone of Galactic Obscuration.
    The area of cosmology responsible for mapping the universe, particularly at a multi-galaxy level, is known as 'cartography of the cosmos', said Pomarede."
