It's also not going to have a ~30 meter wing to distribute the weight. It's going to have all of the velocity concentrated upon a meter area like a wrecking ball.
Yes the CSA is smaller, but the mass is much lower ~500-1000kg vs 7000-12000kg for the DC3
Someone would have to do the maths obviously.
You think it hasn't already?
This isn't going to do anything, even if implemented.
The Apps talking to it will just refuse to work unless you release the information and probably rights to sell it on.
Depends what generic lager someone drinks hard to tell the difference between that and piss.
Some water company going there and bringing it back for the super-rich, un drunk water $100,000 a litre or some other ridiculous amount.
Most of the water on Earth has been drunk at least 10 times over time.
It all switched with the regulation changes that allowed users to cancel their mobile contracts at any time.
As the phone was a "freebie" with the contract, you could buy for 1 month and keep the phone, this required the companies to split the contract into the call plan cost and a loan for the device you are purchasing.
When this shift happened, it also conveniently coincided with the prices going up.
"HMRC would label it hypothecated and, on the basis that they don't like hypothecated taxes, would just roll it into the general taxation pot and the intended beneficiaries would get little or nothing out of it."
Treasury would, not HMRC, they seriously don't like having their spending direction dictated to, elected representative or not.

So they can flog all your location data to advertisers, then show you adverts in the car.
Extra revenue, for them.
Cost, cost, cost
Was about to say the same thing, but for the majority of uses of transistors today (by count) most are used as switches anyway.
The major issue I see with it is the removal of the solid state functionality, just like relays, making the thing reliable over billions if not trillions of actions, in wide environmental conditions is the challenge.
I could only see this being developed if we had room temperature superconductors.
Any data on the switching speed (I respect it's a prototype)?
Good training for a lot of programming environments.
Red dwarfs emit more radiation because they are physically smaller, i.e. the core is closer to the surface.
It could be that the young Sun was physically smaller for the purposes of starting the reaction and it would take time for the reaction to grow and also heat the outer layers of gas so there could have been more radiation emitted.
Which is the entire aim of the policy from a political perspective.
Until they setup another business unit under Alphabet and transfer knowledge and tech; "but it's not Google!"
Cider - Loosely based on a West country Scrumpy, you know the ones that get you pissed from the feet upwards.
With added Nanites - thoroughly intended to prevent you getting a hangover.
Side effects - note Nanites have been known to go rogue and covert you into a Borg!
"Not being a ginormous self-aware globocorp from some nightmare dystopian future, sent back in time to make sure it is created?
I call it the Crapinator."
"Only the Mega Rich corporations own anything."
Neither has Jupiter, look at all those Moons!
Awaits fax machines being banned immediately with no replacement or plan to replace them.
That really does make them astonishingly fu**witted.
Nope, it's deliberate and malicious.
No data = No proof.
Ergo Civil Servants and/or MPs statements have to be taken at face value.
Conceptually it's a Chicken and Egg problem, with the "Free Speech" mantra, but in reality most people are too ill informed to understand if something is malicious. Hence the approach that is taken.
Therefore expertise is required, my issue with it is that opinion of expertise could be abused.
What next, a Ministry of Love?
That's the Home Office.
"but more probably they pay accountants to look after their tax to make sure they
don't pay any more than needed as little as they can get away with."
Corrected it for you.
"The aim of business is not to provide the best service, but the ONLY service!"
I knew Aria when it was 2 guys in a small section of an industrial estate in Manchester.
Haven't dealt with them for a number of years after we had some issues with returns.
They are not using it, ergo they are not Unemployed.
No money going out and an unemployment statistics win.
The fundamental problem with UBI is it cannot work in a Capitalist Economy, the market will render the payments inert.
As everybody gets something, those working have more cash and so spending goes up, demand goes up and prices go up.
Relative value of your payments goes down until they are irrelevant, just like with JSA and the state pension.
Then again, we voted for them.
The positive of Democracy is everyone gets a vote, the negative is that is also the problem.
I always wondered why they didn't fit these rovers with a self-cleaning system? a windscreen wiper or some kind of air duster would surely be doable?
Weight, cost, complexity.
"If there's a long enough pause between the civilizations, the earlier one becomes the fossil fuels for the next. The rest of the fossils might be a clue to the future archaeologists that something went horribly wrong last go around, perhaps they should be more careful this time?"
Maybe that's what happened to the Dinosaurs? And we are just too arrogant to admit it?
White Dwarf cores are supposedly mostly diamond.
Curiosity is about 8200km away from Opportunity. Given it's taken Curiosity 6 yrs to travel ~9km, it would take ~546yrs to reach Opportunity.
"BFR is due for 2019"
Grasshopper style tests only, no orbit.
It's non-linear due to the half life.
By deflecting the Asteroids we would be leaving all those lovely resources up there for future generations.
However, we found that most of the ECUs still respond to the diagnostic messages even at normal driving speed (confirmed on BMW i3), which could cause serious security issues already. It will become much worse if attackers invoke some special UDS routines (e.g. reset ECU, etc..).
Curious If they would actually respond to ECU reset with vehicle speed above 0, most don't.
Yes some read systems still work with the vehicle moving, your OBD reader performing "real time readout" e.g. Torque. Uses these for operation and they are used during development or diagnostics of issues.
But safety critical features are typically protected.
I'm not saying they shouldn't be better protected, but this screams journalistic exaggeration to me.
"With closed source only the vendor can make changes to the code."
Depends on the supplier and the license.
No it hovers to lower the vehicle onto the surface.
Then flys off some distance before crashing.
Cats might work, they are typically lighter and tend to land on their feet.
Don't take so well to issued orders though.
Forced updates are irrational for all the above reasons:
2. Incomplete/Incompatible updates.
As they want to prevent potentially dangerous software from being active on the road, which is a valid request.
Require that particular operation/feature to not be available until the update is applied, rather than forcing the update.
When you get [insert giant tech company name] support callers.
Train it to waste as much of their time as possible.
ARM started in PC's.
Plenty of radiation on Mars, don't need a nuke for that.
Duh, from all the glowing monkeys! ;)
...He's also a hugely successful businessman, which seems to earn him Trump's respect...
Yes Gates is very financially successful, more so than Trump.
I think this is more to do with having 'control' over someone with a higher net worth, than actually the right person for the job.
You'd be surprised how much the 'upper echelons' of society can be childish and petty .
