Discussion and news about the modern effort to understand the nature of life on Earth, finding planets around other stars, and the search for life elsewhere in the universe

Pastures New









The dearth of recent posts is about to come to an end. Life, Unbounded now has a new home at Scientific American's crispy fresh blog network! This has been a while in the making and creates a whole new platform and audience for our discussions on the search for origins in the universe. Scientific American (with the incredible efforts of Bora Zivkovic) has put together an amazing network of bloggers to inform, enlighten, entertain, and amuse the world. It's rather humbling that Life, Unbounded gets to be a part of that, and it's going to be tremendous fun.

This site will remain however, as an archive and dormant outpost. The "new" blog will simply continue the content and style at a different address. Come along and see.

That's great, but is there an rss feed for the new blog? If I click on the rss icon at the top I get a list of blogs that doesn't include Life Unbounded.

Casimir effect is traditionally demonstrated by placing two extremely thin plates extremely close to each other (mere micrometers apart) and letting them spontaneously slam together. But that they slam together destroys the practical usefulness. To use Casimir effect practically, such as tapping vacuum energy or manipulating the vacuum itself, it is necessary to keep the Casimir effect Casimir. Therefore the plates should either be magnetized in such a way that they repel each other or be held on one or two sides mechanically in a way that leaves the space between them free. A solid object honeycombed with microchannels or microholes can also work. The resulting stable Casimir device can be used practically. Manipulating the vacuum energy and the vacuum itself is useful for cheap launches. Anyone with the resources can build a prototype and test it, I am not going to claim any patent money, I just want space travel to really get going.

It was very well authored and easy to understand. Unlike additional blogs I have read which are really not that good. I also found your posts very interesting.

4,000 confirmed exoplanets similar to Earth In the past, visual artists have produced infographics to show in the simplest way possible the ever-increasing number of planets and what we know about them. This latest iteration, called the Exoplanetary Orrery V, was created by Ph.D. student Alan Zucconi from Imperial College London. It presents all confirmed exoplanets with known orbits and temperature until January 2016. The visualizations also include the habitable zones (in green) for the systems based on the luminosity of the host stars.

(1)...interstellar travel (to the third world)... we come in our ship from faraway...are reaching finally, that star they call Sun...our destiny that third planet is distinguished from the others aridly and barrens with its luminescent blue against the dark background of the Universe...now we are under its spell...they call the Earth...we pick up its broadcastings TV...we are hearing the stories that they tell...they speak strangely but we understand... We see at its inhabitants, the human beings very similar to us, outside... We have been studying them in their lifestyles, some in developed places with high level, and others in those other places to that they call...The Third World...suffering, hunger, malnutrition, war, calamities and horror against the feeble... There´s no limit to what we feel... Are we dreaming or is it all real?...is it true?... We see at their leaders to they call religious...(Torquemadas who were "executioners" against the Human Beings in the Middle Age with their Inquisition on behalf of their sanguinary gods...and still have the arrogance to put their secrets and sectarian religious symbols (channel TV Discovery Max, "secret societies") in popular bank note 1 dollar, if anyone doubts who governs in the shadow the World)...well fattened in their golden palaces... while children perish converted into skeletons with some skin and eyes full of flies, in the arms of their horrified mothers who do not have even a glass of clean water to drink them... religious and political leaders who are purposely keeping the horror because WITHOUT POOR AND IGNORANT THERE IS NOT RELIGION... Have to separate between the worthy concept, strictly personal, believing in a Goddess or a God (wheat) and Humankind´s anxiety of Eternity;...from the manipulation and interested ancient Lie that is religion (darnel)... religions only are a Malign Tale for social control to serve at pontifices, monarchies and politicians...who hypocritically first created the poor..."the poor are always with us"...and after give them an alms... Only are in Earth´s "culture" religion gods, for that reason ½ century ago without go to Moon...religious have very fear from extraterrestrial...because innocent people also will know this... IT´S TRUTH THAT RELIGION IS LIE
