Anyone into space-age stuff? Looks like we will soon be living on other bodies within our Solar System.  Cool

Quote
Scientists working with astronauts on the International Space Station are "very pleased" with the results of a small food-growing trial.

Italian and American scientists say plants can be grown without the Earth's gravity, using specialised water, soil and light techniques.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Rome.

It's a personal pedantic pet peeve of mine when people confuse free fall with a lack of Earth's gravity. The Earth's gravity acts on the moon. It has no problem reaching a tiny fraction of that distance to a space station.

Finally.

"We will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years.

Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks, but pure P2P networks are holding their own."

AFAIK this (growing plants, not the exact experiment) has been done on MIR before.

Why is this good news? It just shows that no real progress is being made because it isn't as if growing plants is a major breakthrough.
