How do they know these bacteria are 16 million years old? Do they have birth certificates? Passports, maybe? Does AARP know about this, and are they eligible to join?

If they where german bakteria they would have a birth certificate and a passport. Even our Skeletons, Ghosts and Vampires get them ;)

Does Gliese 581 have a gas giant in the d slot?

TheEngineer April 25th, 2007 03:19 AM

Hi !

Well, the actual paper
http://obswww.unige.ch/~udry/udry_preprint.pdf
does not tell anything about gas giants.

It does indeed note, that M class stars generally seem to have a tendency towards small planet formation ...

regards,

TE

So, we'd better have some drop tanks.

TheEngineer April 26th, 2007 02:34 PM

Well, as hydrogen is the most common stuff in the universe, I would guess there is somewhere something to put in the tanks.
So perhaps purifiers and a piece of player imagination would be enough... [img]smile.gif[/img]
Hm lets think ... guess I still would like to use drptanks, too.

Yes, I know it's about temperature. Scroll down a bit to this part:

"Rosch and his colleagues have calculated that whereas clouds of atoms would normally be pulled downwards by gravity, if part of the cloud is at a negative absolute temperature, some atoms will move upwards, apparently defying gravity"

Presumably that's due to magnetic interaction with other atoms in the cloud though.

Soviet Cold War map making and the post-USSR market for the same

http://www.wired.com/2015/07/secret-cold-war-maps/

While something like "Google Regina" undoubtedly exists, how often is it updated and what sort of accuracy is allowed to the public? Most of our Google Earth dates from 2004 with only minor and sporadic updates since and civilian GPS is limited to a certain accuracy.

IIRC, LBB:4 Mercenary has rules for converting orbital scans into "chips" for the "map box" described in the equipment section.

Given the sensors and processing power available to even a scout/courier, what sort of "deeper" or topic-specific maps can be produced?
