SLS: Is cancellation too good?

SLS: Is cancellation too good?

The SLS axiomatically cannot provide good value to the US taxpayer. In that regard it has already failed, regardless of whether it eventually manages to limp to orbit with a Falcon Heavy payload or two.The question here is whether it is allowed to inflict humiliation and tragedy on the US public, who so richly deserve an actual legitimate launch program run by and for actual technical experts.The best time to cancel SLS was 15 years ago. The second best time is now.Oh yeah, the disclaimer. I do not speak for my employer. This blog should not be construed as an attack on the rank and file...

About that fake Mars night sky panorama

About that fake Mars night sky panorama

Stargazing for people who think they don't have time for stargazing.«February 23, 2021There’s a thing flying around Facebook, and probably other social media sites, that purports to show a panorama of a starry night sky over the Perseverance rover. There are a couple of problems with it.For one, it’s a fake. The landscape around Perseverance is real, and the sky is real, but it’s an Earth sky, not a Mars sky, and the two have been composited together. How do we know?If it was dark enough to see all those stars, it would be waaaay too dark to see the ground in front of the rover.So I checked...

The Curious Case of MOL’s Missing Mission

Chronicles of someone trying to get off the rock.For those interested in diving down a spaceflight rabbit hole, I here detail a key term hidden amongst thousands of declassified pages that hints at a defunct space station’s secret mission – one that might soon find new life given the renewed talk of a “Space Force.” …if it hasn’t already been resurrected, that is…Artist’s rendering of the Manned Orbiting Laboratory, or MOL.

What an 1850s winter scene says about New York life

What an 1850s winter scene says about New York life

Chronicling an ever-changing city through faded and forgotten artifacts«»At first glance, “Winter Scene on Broadway” does what colorized engravings are supposed to do, which is to offer a dramatic, romantic view of life in New York City, mainly for nonresidents.In this case, the overview is the hustle and bustle of Gotham’s most famous thoroughfare between Prince and Spring Streets in wintertime: icicles hanging from handsome buildings, pedestrians of all stripes navigating the sidewalks, and a jam-packed streetcar fitted with sled rails and pulled by three teams of horses making its way...

BBC claims it’s not “in the public interest” to report on fatal false rape accusation case

BBC claims it’s not “in the public interest” to report on fatal false rape accusation case

Earlier this week we , a young man from Hull who sadly took his own life after being falsely accused of rape. In the article we noted the lack of national media coverage of the case, highlighting in particular the public service of the obligations of the BBC to report on the case (specifically the local BBC Look North and radio Humberside networks).We’re pleased to say that our initial report it now somewhat outdated and sections of the media picked up on the story immediately after our article was published. One Wednesday the Daily Mail published an concerning the case, as did . Notably,...

Chronicling an ever-changing city through faded and forgotten artifacts«»Every year this site does a —the faded outlines of chimneys, flat or peaked roofs, windows, and staircases that were left behind after a demolition and look like apparitions of New York’s low-rise, walkup past.They’re spooky reminders of a different city and often easy to see, like this one in Upper First Avenue, probably a four-story tenement, painted in orange. And could that be a second ghost building behind it, a little taller faded in white?This one is another double ghost building on 44th Street toward Midtown....

False rape accusations take yet another life – national media silent

False rape accusations take yet another life – national media silent

We’ve the issue of false rape accusation here at HEqual, particularly fatal false rape accusations in the UK and regret to bring readers news of yet another such case.On Sunday, the Hull Daily Mail reported the news of the inquest into the death of Grant Townsend from Hull. Townsend was aged just 24 when he took his own life and while he clearly had a number of pressures and tragedies in his life, the reporting is commendable in that it makes it clear that a false rape accusation was the main reason for his death, a position echoed by comments form his family. The coroner at the inquest...

An ode to construction workers on a 57th Street Art Deco tower

An ode to construction workers on a 57th Street Art Deco tower

Chronicling an ever-changing city through faded and forgotten artifacts«»There’s a lot to love about the Fuller Building, the Art Deco-Art Nouveau beauty built in 1929 that rises 40 stories over Madison Avenue and 57th Street.A few favorites: the black granite facade on the lower floors, geometric designs at the top of the tower, and the medallions showing various buildings constructed by the Fuller Company, an early developer of steel-skeleton skyscrapers. (These included the when it opened in 1902—but “flatiron” stuck because of the shape of the lot it was built on.)Perhaps the most...

Friedel Oscillations: wherein we learn that the electron has a size

Abandoned Russian Diamond Mine turned into Eco City

Abandoned Russian Diamond Mine turned into Eco City

In Eastern Siberia in the town of Mirniy is a open pit diamond mine that closed down in 2011. The mine itself is 525 meters (1,722 ft) deep (4th in the world) and has a diameter of 1,200 m (3,900 ft),[1] and is the second largest excavated hole in the world, after Bingham Canyon Mine.

For rent on the Upper West Side in the 1930s

For rent on the Upper West Side in the 1930s

Chronicling an ever-changing city through faded and forgotten artifacts«»Finding a relatively affordable apartment in a pricey Upper West Side building is no easy feat. But things appeared different in the late 1930s, as a peek at the real estate pages of the New York Times reveals.The “for rent” section of the paper in August 1938 features dozens of oversize ads dripping with adjectives and images designed to lure tenants—and the vast majority of these ads are for elite Upper West Side addresses.A combination of factors apparently led to a late 1930s glut of unrented units in the buildings...

GAB – another extreme in extreme society

GAB – another extreme in extreme society

The GAB social network – which has attracted a record number of new users in a short period, wants, as their CEO Andrew Torba says – to give everyone complete freedom of speech.A few years ago, GAB was the target of many media that declared them Nazis, white supremacists, racists, etc.Common derogatory names for anyone who thinks differently. But is that so?When we criticize one side, we should always take pure facts as the only relevant ones.As Twitter has been shutting down specific accounts lately, it is diminishing the number of followers of certain politicians and conservatives – we...
