Beancounters tell NASA it's too poor to fly planned mega-rocket

What an Enterprise! NASA physicist, artist unveil warp-speed craft design

NASA's Harold White has been working since 2010 to develop a warp drive that will allow spacecraft to travel at speeds faster than light -- 186,000 miles per second. White, who heads NASA's Advanced Propulsion Team, spoke about his conceptual starship at a conference last fall. But interest in his project reached a new level this week when he unveiled images of what the craft might look like.

This, this is what counts as progress today - CGI imagery, fantasy and make-believe.

Re: Certain cuts will have to be made, say the bean counters

But the savings will be immediately allocated for the War against the Caliphate, the War against the Emirate, the Pacific Pivot or The Other NATO Expansion. I despair.

Re: Real portrayl?

You may notice that WWII was started to guarantee that the german town of Danzig remained in Poland, but ended with Poland ravaged and handed to Stalin on a platter while the lying liar FDR maintained to the end (which is to say, until the presidential elections were over and had obtained the polish vote) that Poland would be get a dose of freedom and that Stalin had jolly well agreed to this. This was then followed up with operation Keelhaul, about which the less said the better.

Any correlations with current events are totally unintended and no animals are being harmed.

Please bring back skeumorphism, all is forgiven.

Only the Knights of Utter Hipster Retardation think that skeumorphism is necessarily bad.

People have all that visual cortex that can usefully applied to grouping semantically related or separating semantically distinct elements via fast analysis of a nice quasi-3D image. Forcing people to pull the same information out of a flat expanse of rioting color is an idea that is just stoopid.

That hand must also have travelled a LONG time through space, so I suppose this all plays at a time that is near the moment of utter heat-death of the universe?

Re: Smells like copy-protections

If I buylicense software, I pay the software company for the SOFTWARE.

If I get more cores, then I pay the hardware company for the CORES.

The SOFTWARE company asking me to pay more for actually using the CORES, which they didn't develop or otherwise had a hand in bringing to market should immediately result in management of said company being run out of town on rails, possibly chased by antitrust regulators.

Re: So sad

You don't need to feel hollow, just off-base (at least for now) because MANPADs are definitely NOT involved here. They wouldn't be able to reach the plane. You need the east-side equivalent of a Patriot missile system (a very complex weapon system), coincidentally fielded (with chasing radar active on the 17th) in large numbers by Ukraine I hear (via rt.com, natch). Though this is being denied by both Ukraine and the "Obama Administration", which has somehow become the very protectivce chaperone for the Ukrainians and their unsavory right-wing antics, with the affirmation that Ukraine's anti-aircraft capabilities are actually non-existent. Ho-hum.

To counter some extreme levels of "Putin Bad" retardation the MSM is currently duly exhibiting (they know who butters they bread after all), the best résumé can be found here and here.

Note that Hillary already confirmed that it was Putin who dunnit. She certainly is a powerful medium. We should have deployed her on USS Vincennes...
