NASA Finds Most Earth-Like Planet Yet
 
02:34
Researchers have discovered the most similar planet yet to Earth, 1,400 light-years away. Kepler-452b orbits its star in 385 days, just 20 days longer than our own year. Its star is just 4% larger, a billion and a half years older, and 20% brighter than the sun, meaning 452b is firmly in the “goldilocks” habitable zone that puts the odds of it being rocky, like Earth, between 50-62%. More Information: http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-kepler-mission-discovers-bigger-older-cousin-to-earth http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/jul/23/nasa-closest-twin-to-earth-kepler-452b http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/24/science/space/kepler-data-reveals-what-might-be-best-goldilocks-planet-yet.html?_r=0 Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Like our page on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation Join us on Google+ https://plus.google.com/100134925804523235350/posts Follow us on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Researchers have discovered the most similar planet yet to Earth, 1,400 light-years away. Kepler-452b orbits its star in 385 days, just 20 days longer than our own year. Its star is just 4% larger, a billion and a half years older, and 20% brighter than the sun, meaning 452b is firmly in the “goldilocks” habitable zone that puts the odds of it being rocky, like Earth, between 50-62%. Scientist Jeff Coughlin says “this is the first possibly rocky, habitable planet around a solar-type star.” All 11 previously discovered exoplanets of similar size and orbit circle smaller, cooler stars. The planet was found by the Kepler telescope, which searches for possible Earth-twins by observing periodic dips in the brightness of stars as planets pass before them, like the way our moon causes an eclipse here on Earth. The Kepler telescope stared at a single patch of the Milky Way for four years before its pointing system failed in 2013, but the mission still succeeded in cataloguing more than 4,600 exoplanet candidates. This means astronomers still have huge amounts of data to sort through and make new findings, like this discovery. With 452b, just over 1,000 of the exoplanet candidates have now been confirmed. 20 years ago this fall, the first exoplanet orbiting a distant star was discovered. And with the successor to Kepler launching in 2017, the pace of discovery is about to increase substantially. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (or TESS), will be able to cover hundreds of times as much sky as the Kepler mission, and will identify prime targets for further examination by the successor to Hubble, the James Webb Space Telescope, set for an October 2018 launch. Astronomers can now project with some degree of confidence that of the 600 stars within 30 light-years of Earth, there should be roughly 60 potential earth-twins. So, according to Dr. Didier Queloz, the man who co-discovered that first earth-like planet 20 years ago, “If we keep working so well and so enthusiastically, the issue of life on another planet will be solved.” Like and share this video to help others on our little rock become aware of this good news. For the video editor Brendan Plank, I’m his brother Bryce, thanks for watching.

The Future of Airplanes
 
03:53
Planes will change a lot in the next 50 years. This is look at the developments in airplane technology that are likely in the future of aviation.

This is the future of flight. With the first all-electric twin-engine, self-powered plane successfully crossing the English Channel this month, and the ongoing effort of the Solar Impulse team to become the first completely solar-powered aircraft to fly around the world, the amount of innovation targeting the aviation industry is eye-opening. Within the next year, unmanned, solar-powered drones like the Silent Falcon will hit the commercial UAV market. The Joby Aviation S2 electric is a proposed Vertical Takeoff and Landing aircraft that could be five times as efficient as a conventional personal airplane. Airbus’ two passenger version of the E-Fan will use on-board lithium batteries to power two electric engines. The Aeroscraft ML868 could lead a comeback of giant airships. The 770 foot-long behemoth can carry 200 tons with cargo bays larger than any current air, truck or rail transport vehicle. Aerion’s AS2 is the first supersonic commercial jet since the Concorde. It will fly at a speed of Mach 1.6. Laminar flow technology and better wing design will reduce drag by 20%. By the middle of the 2020’s we’ll likely see solar powered drones delivering broadband to millions for a fraction of the cost of traditional satellites. Building on the concept of drones and autonomous flying technology, fully-automated planes will take to the skies to revolutionize not just the air cargo delivery industry, but possibly personal air travel as well, much like what’s happening today with driverless cars. By 2030, plant-based fuels should account for 30% or more of an airlines’ fuel consumption. Airbus’ hybrid commercial airliner will emit barely any emissions or noise on takeoff and landing thanks to lithium-air batteries. Boeing and NASA could team to launch a hybrid commercial airliner called SUGAR for Subsonic Ultra-Green, Aircraft Research, which uses two-thirds less fuel than an equivalent sized aircraft from 2015. Traveling 10% slower, but using 70% less fuel than today’s Boeing 737, the D8 Series Double Bubble’s fuselage will provide 20% of its lift. By 2040, we could see the world’s first hydrogen powered commercial flight. The hydrogen would be cryogenically frozen. EAD’s Zero Emission High Supersonic Transport passenger jet, running on biofuel, could cut the more than 6,000 mile flight from Paris to Tokyo to just 2:30 minutes. Like a fighter jet on an aircraft carrier, commercial planes could be catapulted into the air, reducing the length of runways by one-third. As if they were a flock of migrating birds, more intelligent systems could allow aircraft on the same routes to self-organize into a flying patter, reducing wind drag and saving fuel. Six hydrogen engines, a rear engine that doubles as a wind turbine, and solar panels on its roof and wings will propel the zero-emission Progress Eagle, a triple-decker, 800-passenger airplane concept that we could see in production by 2070.

Its rich soil was ideal for growing rice and attracted farmers from far and wide. In 1600, the great commander Tokugawa Ieyasu won the Battle of Sekigahara, a pivotal moment in history that secured Edo’s status as the most important place in Japan. Unfortunately, the buildings of the expanding city were made of wood and paper, a dangerous combination to confront the warm winds of summer. Legend has it that on one particularly dry afternoon in 1657, a priest made the deadly mistake of burning an unlucky kimono. The fire flared up, ignited his temple, and engulfed 70% of the city. 100,000 people lost their lives. Despite the disaster, by the middle of the 19th century Edo’s population was in the millions. That’s when the military shogunate system that had ruled for almost 700 years ended. A new government led by a young emperor finally made Edo the official capital of Japan, renamed it Tokyo, and made the castle his imperial palace. To celebrate his arrival, everyone toasted with rounds of sake on the house. Around this time Japan opened up to foreign trade and influence, with Tokyo driving the industrial revolution that was modernizing the country. But rapid development had a cost: a strained natural environment. Forests were razed, pollutants choked the air, and Tokyo’s once pristine waterways grew increasingly toxic. It was time for a more conscientious approach. The principle of Satoyama was born, promoting sustainable coexistence with nature, especially in the rice fields covering Japan’s sprawling foothills. Today, a century of conservation has resulted in parks covering 20% of the land in the Tokyo metropolitan area. But while the danger from pollution has been largely overcome, one natural phenomenon poses an unavoidable threat: earthquakes. In 1923, an 8.0 magnitude quake rocked Tokyo, devastating the geologically unstable eastern wards of the city. As firestorms engulfed whole neighborhoods, some took advantage of the chaos to target political enemies and minority groups, like Koreans. When the smoke finally cleared, 140,000 people had perished. Just twenty-two years later, in 1944, Tokyo was hit again. This time from above by allied air forces who waged a relentless nine month campaign that lasted until Japan’s surrender to end WWII following America’s detonation of two atomic weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On the worst night of the onslaught, 279 Boeing B-29 Superfortress heavy bombers dropped more than 1,600 tons of explosives on Eastern Tokyo... It took generations for Tokyo to completely recover, but today - after more than seven decades at peace - Tokyo is thriving... Zee news says in the newspaper that congress should make hawaii renewable like Japan.

China's Amazing Water Canal | China's Future MEGAPROJECTS: Part 2

South-to-North Water Transfer Project: The huge populations filling China's northern megacities have a shortage of the single most necessary resource for life: water. To solve that problem, the Chinese will soon be moving 44.8 billion cubic meters of fresh water each year from the wetter South to the dryer North.

To solve that problem, the Chinese will soon be moving 44.8 billion cubic meters of fresh water each year from the wetter South to the dryer North. There will be three canals in the project, a 716 mile-long Eastern Canal that will begin at the Yangtze River and snake uphill, with the help of more than 20 pumping stations, to reservoirs in Tianjin. Route two will flow downhill from the Danjiangkou Reservoir on the Han river 785 miles across the North China Plain to Beijing. And the third route is the Big Western Line. It’s still in its planning phase, but it will divert water from the rivers flowing into the Yangtze, sending it to the Yellow River instead. The Central Government has rammed this project through despite many concerns over pollution and the forced relocation of hundreds of thousands of villagers. It’s also late and over budget due to the soaring costs of building bridges and tunnels for the canals to cross the many rivers and highways in its way. Then there are the fears that diverting water from the Yangtze River could cause the world’s third-longest river to run low, devastating those whose livelihoods depend on it. One proposed solution to this problem is to give the Yangtze more water by redirecting rivers in southwestern China. But this would affect India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, potentially causing an international crisis. For the immediate future though, the South-to-North water Transfer Project is a done deal. Following the example of the American West in the previous century, China has completely reshaped its environment using dams and canals, allowing for the arid North to support tens of millions more residents than it otherwise could.

US Threatened By Future Mega-Earthquake
 
04:32
A "megathrust" earthquake and tsunami will devastate the Northwest US, a geological region of the Pacific Ocean's "Ring of Fire" called the Cascadia Subduction Zone where major tectonic plates collide. FB for daily news: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Written, narrated and produced by Bryce Plank Video editing and effects by Robin West Research by Juliet Saunders Video based on this article: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/07/20/the-really-big-one Music: All This - Scoring Action by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1300001 Decisions by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100756 Seattle timelapse courtesy of YouTuber Edward Aites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AqyHZ7JS1s When you think of the big earthquake that will devastate the Western U.S., you probably assume it will hit California. But the massive one we’re supposedly long overdue for will actually hit the Pacific Northwest, devastating Seattle and much of 700 coastal miles from Vancouver to NorCal’s Mendocino Cape. This area lies on the Cascadia subduction zone. The Cascades are the volcanic mountain range that run parallel to the fault, some 100 miles inland, and are formed by the Juan De Fuca tectonic plate colliding with, and sliding underneath, the North American plate. This geological battle will eventually result in the weaker North American plate buckling violently as it gives way to the mounting pressure, dropping several meters in a few seconds. This will cause a 9.2 magnitude megathrust earthquake that will last around 4 minutes and will be 30 times more powerful than anything California’s San Andreas fault can produce. What happens after that is truly terrifying. Since the event will happen in the ocean, it will send a tsunami, a wall of water more than 15 meters high, rushing back toward coastal areas like Puget Sound and the heavily populated Seattle area. As it washes ashore it will destroy everything in its path. The catastrophic tsunami triggered by the 2011 Tōhoku 9.0 earthquake in Japan was responsible for the vast majority of the 18,000+ deaths suffered in that disaster. And Japan even had an early warning system that sensed the initial tremor and automatically activated to save countless lives by shutting down power plants and railways, and performing various other vital services before the full quake and tsunami struck. The Pacific Northwest has no such early warning system. In fact, three years ago the citizens of Seaside, Oregon rejected a plan that would’ve raised their taxes in order to move three schools out of the tsunami inundation zone. [Show clip of devastated school administrator describing why that’s such a mistake.] The voters came to their senses this November and funded a version of the plan, but the story is representative of the lack of awareness those living in the Cascadia Subduction Zone have about the uncertain ground they actually live on. Part of the reason why the region seems to be in a complete state of denial is because the Juan De Fuca plate hasn’t caused an earthquake in 317 years. It’s a sleeping giant that’s 75 years overdue for an awakening. To get a sense for how destructive a 9.2 quake would be, we need look no further than the 1964 Great Alaskan Earthquake of the same magnitude that sent tsunami’s rippling throughout the pacific, one of which killed 12 people in Crescent City, California, some 1,600 miles away from the quake’s epicenter. The biggest problem is that seismology was in its infancy when much of the Pacific Northwest was built, so Portland - for example - didn’t have a seismic building code until 1974. More than a million structures in the region would collapse or be irreparably damaged by a megathrust quake, three thousand of them schools. Other critical infrastructure that will either collapse or be greatly compromised will be half of all highway bridges, fifteen of the seventeen bridges spanning Portland's two rivers, two thirds of all railways and airports, one-third of all fire stations, half of all police stations, and two-thirds of all hospitals. There will also be land liquefaction, a phenomenon whereby partially saturated soil loses strength and stiffness. Not only does 15 percent of Seattle lie on land vulnerable to liquefaction, but so does Oregon’s Critical Infrastructure hub where miles of gas lines converge.

Vladimir Putin's Early Life Story
 
03:35
How Russian President Vladimir Putin rose to power from the ashes of the Soviet Union. Subscribe to TDC for more videos like this: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation Facebook http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation Google+ https://plus.google.com/100134925804523235350/posts Twitter http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin was born on October 7, 1952 in Leningrad, Soviet Union, the city now known as Saint Petersburg. Growing up poor, he chased rats around the stairwells of his shabby apartment building. His father - also called Vladimir - served on Soviet submarines and, during WWII, was severely wounded while fighting on the front lines against the Nazis. Putin's mother, Maria, was a factory worker. She had given birth to Vladimir's two older brothers, but they both died before he was born. Vladimir's grandfather was apparently a talented chef who cooked for Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin. As a young man, Putin spent a lot of time in the streets of Leningrad, which was in bad shape after losing 800,000 people at the hands of a relentless Nazi siege. He became a hooligan and jumped at any chance to brawl. In sixth grade, he found an outlet for that aggression in Sambo, a Soviet martial art combining judo, karate and wrestling. Eventually he took up Judo too, and currently holds a 6th degree black belt in the sport. Influenced by movies and books, a young Vladimir also developed a desire to become a spy. At the suggestion of a KGB recruiter, Putin went to university. Soon after finishing, Putin entered the KGB, the main security agency of the Soviet Union. Around this time he married his now ex-wife Ludmila after a strange proposal in which Ludmila actually thought Vladimir was breaking up with her. In 1984 Putin got the break he had been waiting for, and was sent to spy school in Moscow, but was disappointed when he was assigned to work in Dresden, Germany to gain information about the west, mostly by just collecting press clippings to add to the growing mountain of unimportant information produced by the KGB. Putin's biggest success while in Dresden was in contacting an American Sergeant, who sold him an unclassified army manual for 800 marks. Putin was depressed. He stopped working out, turned to the bottle, and put 20 pounds on his narrow frame. While Putin was toiling in Germany the Berlin wall fell, uniting East Germany with the West, bringing everything Putin had been working for down with it. Forced to return his young family to Leningrad, the now 37-year-old Putin resolved to do everything in his power to keep the Soviet Union he knew and loved alive. But as the Soviet Union collapsed, Putin seized an opportunity to become involved in politics. He started working for the mayor of Saint Petersburg, who was one of his former college professors. While heading the Saint Petersburg Committee for External Relations, Putin was investigated by the city council for corrupt practices and it was recommended that Putin be fired. But, because he was the mayor's right-hand man, Putin stayed in the St. Petersburg government until 1996. Putin was then called to Moscow where he held a variety of governmental posts under President Boris Yeltsin, rapidly charming his superiors to climb the ladders of power, while building an inner circle of influential allies. Yeltsin, often drunk, in poor health, and paranoid, made Putin the head of a powerful successor agency to the KGB, the FSB. Putin was credited for modernising the security apparatus to take on new threats like organised crime, corruption and terrorism. As Yeltsin's own approval ratings plummeted, he wanted to give the Russian people a successor with little baggage, so he made Putin Prime Minister. And after Yeltsin's surprise resignation, Putin became President of Russia, rising from utter obscurity to become the most powerful man in the country less than three years after his arrival in the capital.

Turkey's Infrastructure Boom: Future MEGAPROJECTS
 
04:19
Turkey is spending $400+ billion on modernization projects to try and become one of the world's 10 largest economies in the coming decades. FB for daily news: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Video editing and effects by Robin West Researched, written, narrated and produced by Bryce Plank Music by Alex Gopher: https://soundcloud.com/alexgopher https://www.youtube.com/user/go4musicchannel http://www.go4music.fr/ All images and video credited and used under the protection of Fair Use in U.S. Copyright Law section 107. Script: These are the most ambitious megaprojects in development around the world. No other country, with the exception of China and perhaps India, is undergoing a bigger building boom than Turkey. The Turkish government is overseeing a $400 billion spending spree on infrastructure that it hopes will lay the groundwork for a rapid economic rise. The impressive list of projects includes: The $49 billion Istanbul New Airport that’s about half complete. It’ll replace the 93 year old Ataturk Airport and, with a passenger capacity of 150 million a year, it will be one of the planet’s busiest. Istanbul’s advantageous geographical location also helps. “Istanbul, as a hub, is definitely much better location than Doha and Dubai, or Abu Dhabi, so we have these certain advantages compared to other countries.” The $5 Billion Istanbul Finance Center will centralize Turkish investment banking, much like New York City’s Wall Street does for the United States. A 48 km canal is being built alongside the Bosphorous strait that divides not only the city of Istanbul, but the continents of Europe and Asia. At a cost of $10 billion, even Turkey’s President calls it a “crazy project.” Then there’s the $45 billion high speed rail system that at 10,000 km will be the longest in Europe and the second-longest in the world behind China. The $6.5 billion Istanbul-Izmir Motorway Project is a six-lane highway that will connect the eastern edge of Istanbul to the Izmir province on the Aegean coast. Turkey will become a regional energy hub thanks to a $10 billion natural gas pipeline that will connect Azerbaijan’s production facilities with consumers in Europe. Adding to its energy portfolio will be a $5.5 billion refinery on its west coast that, when finished, will be the largest in the country. Turkey is also beefing up its armed forces, spending $7 billion to cluster its defense and aerospace industries so it can increase production and exports to the international market. It has also committed more than $1 billion to develop an independent Turkish space program with the goal of launching 20 satellites into orbit by 2020. All of these projects come on the heels of the completion in 2016 of both the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge and the Eurasia Tunnel, two Megaprojects passing over and under the Bosphorus strait. But the country’s main project is much more practical. At a cost of more than $200 billion, Turkey will demolish and reconstruct seven million buildings throughout the country. Why? Because the majority of structures do not meet basic safety standards in a region prone to devastating earthquakes. Government edicts state that the need to implement the urban renewal plan overrules all existing laws that would’ve prevented people’s houses and apartment buildings from being torn down. The reasons for the MegaProject boom are complicated. Yes, Turkey needs to modernize, and the quickest way to do it is for the government to have a strong hand in guiding the nation toward prosperity. But it’s also a blatant attempt by the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan - in power since 2003 - to maintain control over the country by promising economic success. Not only is Erdoğan raising legitimate questions about corruption, his strongman approach is trampling the rights of individuals and local municipalities. On top of that his projections are unrealistically optimistic. Erdoğan says the country can become a top 10 world economy by 2023--which happens to be the 100th anniversary of the modern Turkish republic, and would mark 20-years of his rule. A simple look at where Turkey currently sits on the list of countries ranked by their GDP reveals that it’s economy would have to more than double in less than 6 years, while the economies of Canada and South Korea completely stagnate. That’s simply not going to happen. This high-stakes game was laid bare a couple months ago when Erdoğan narrowly escaped succumbing to a coup that would have seen the country descend into violent internal conflict and even civil war. Sharing its southern border with Syria and Iraq is only adding to the country’s instability.

Since the hit-making animation studio is set to release two more films in the next few months, I thought it’d be interesting to put the theory out there, and start a conversation. It begins with Brave, and Merida discovering the “the-will-of-the-wisps.” This magic turns her mother into a bear and is the reason why animals and inanimate objects behave like humans. A witch uses this magic and mysteriously vanishes through wooden doors. The magic from the will of the wisps eventually leads to... The Incredibles are superheroes who maintain order and justice in the world. But the villain Buddy introduces artificially intelligent robots which try and destroy the superhumans. He also harnesses Zero Point Energy, a power source that exists in wavelengths and gives life to… In Toy Story, toys learn which learn that another energy source is human love, upon which they thrive. In the first movie, the gang begins to understand what happens to toys that are isolated from humans... In the second Toy Story 2 film the toys evolve to become more self-aware and begin questioning their purpose. Certain toys, like Jesse, begin to resent their human owners for abandoning them. Resentment is also felt by animals too... In Finding Nemo we learn that fish have very advanced intelligence and are suffering from human pollution and experimentation. They too begin to resent humans for their lack of concern for nature and the environment.... In Remy from Ratatouille, we see an even more advanced animal who walks on his hind legs, can read, and cook better than all the other humans. His relationship with Linguini is also the first time we see communication between animals and humans, but the tides are beginning to turn, as Remy essentially uses Linguini as his controllable cooking machine... In Toy Story 3, three years later, the toys are also ready to take over. They’re fed up with being abused and some characters, like Lotso the Huggin’ Bear, hate humans with a passion... Meanwhile, in UP, as a result of the increasing dominance of the BnL corporation, Carl is forced to give up his property. This foreshadows that BnL is the cause of widespread pollution that wipes out life on earth in the future. Carl also discovers that animals can communicate with humans and he learns how bitter they are at their subservient role... In Cars, when the animals finally do rise up, the machines side with humans in the war because people are the source of the machine’s energy, but eliminating the animals throws off the balance of the ecosystem, so humans are sent away on a ship called the Axiom. All of the other machines are left behind to populate the world and run things... This is confirmed in Cars 2 when humans are still nowhere to be found anywhere on earth. With the humans gone, the cars have to run on oil, but the oil eventually runs out... Fast Forward a few hundred years when Wall-E is the only machine left on earth, surviving because of his connection to human culture and his relationship with the single remaining living creature, a sturdy cockroach. This robot Jesus and his aptly-named love, Eve, save the human race and help them come home to repopulate the planet. The end credits show the last plant growing into a mighty tree...

Step one is for Lockheed Martin to complete the $20 billion Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle. It will be the first modern spacecraft capable of carrying humans beyond where the International Space Station currently exists in low earth orbit, to reach asteroids and—eventually—the Red Planet. For these trips, astronauts will need a vehicle that can support them for extended periods of time, while protecting them and their equipment from radiation, extreme temperatures, and micrometeoroid strikes. But the NASA/Lockheed collaboration has competition. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has grabbed headlines with his announcement that its Dragon 2 spacecraft will fly two private citizens on a five day trip around the moon and back. The target launch for the mission is 2018. Although that timeline may be overly optimistic given that SpaceX has not yet flown a single manned mission, NASA—in a statement—praised its industry partner for “reaching higher,” and vowed to work closely with SpaceX to ensure it safely “returns the launch of astronauts to U.S. soil.” For his part, in deference to his company’s close partnership with the American space agency, Musk said he’s willing to bump the two space tourists—who’ve already paid a significant deposit—to a later flight. "NASA always has first priority...So if NASA decides to have the first mission of this nature be a NASA mission, then of course NASA would take priority." But regardless of who gets around the moon first, the big prize is Mars. 75,000,000 km from Earth, it’s 195x farther than the moon. To study the effects on the human body of spending months in space, astronauts Scott Kelly and Mikhail Korniyenko spent over 11 months living on the ISS. Kelly actually grew two inches during his prolonged time in microgravity. He shrunk back to his normal height two days after returning to earth. NASA is also using Mars Mission simulations—in which research subjects spend months together in Hawaii isolated from the outside world—to figure out the best way to handle the unique psychological burdens of the long journey. And that’s where the mission to Mars starts to run into serious challenges. One look at the Orion and Dragon crafts reveals that even if the scientists and engineers get everything else right about the journey, there simply is not enough room for multiple human beings to live together for a nine month each-way trip to Mars—unless the mission is to drive the astronauts completely insane. NASA’s going to tackle this problem in the next decade by capturing an asteroid and placing it in orbit around the moon, and then docking with it and collecting samples. This mission will be a test run for longer trips away from Earth, deep space walking techniques, and Solar Electric Propulsion, all of which will need to be perfected before any human mission to Mars can move forward. NASA calls the third and final phase of putting astronauts on Mars Earth Independent. Thanks to successful missions like the Curiosity rover, we’ve already begun to learn a ton about potential exploration zones. The next NASA rover is scheduled to touch down in 2020, and will have company. Europe, China, India, the United Arab Emirates, and SpaceX all plan on taking advantage of the summer 2020 launch window—when the planets will be at their shortest distances from one another—to deliver rovers and orbiters to the Red Planet. The 2020 rover will help NASA figure out the entry, descent, and landing techniques needed to get down to the Martian surface from orbit, and to learn what’s needed to live off the land. NASA is also planning a round-trip robotic mission that will return to Earth with samples sometime in the late 2020’s. But to make that defining moment in human history happen, when a human foot steps down on Martian soil, NASA will have to overcome two massive challenges that could make this one of the most expensive megaprojects in human history: designing a spacecraft that can support a survivable trip to Mars and back, and designing a propulsion system that can deliver that craft, and then bring it home.

"Unless you're Native American, you came from someplace else."
 
03:05
President Obama reminds the American people that all citizens of the U.S. are descended from immigrants. Watch the full speech here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lVIuW8vJ_E "Immigration's always been an issue that inflames passions. That's not surprising. There are a few things that are more important to us as a society than who gets to come here and call our country home. Who gets the privilege of becoming a citizen of the United States of America. That's a big deal. When we talk about that in the abstract, it is easy sometimes for the discussion to take on a feeling of us versus them. And when that happens, a lot of folks forget that most of us used to be them. We forget that. And it's really important for us to remember history. Unless you're one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from some place else, somebody brought you. The Irish who left behind a land of famine; the Germans who fled persecution; the Scandinavians who arrived eager to pioneer out west; the Polish, the Russians, the Italians, the Chinese, the Japanese, the West Indians -- the huddled masses who came through Ellis Island on one coast and Angel Island on the other. All those folks before they were us, they were them. And when each new wave of immigrants arrived, they faced resistance from those who were already here. They faced hardship. They faced racism. They faced ridicule. But over time, they went about their daily lives. They earned a living as they raised a family, as they built a community, as their kids went to school here. They did their part to build the nation. They were the Einsteins and the Carnegies, but they were also the millions of women and men whose names history may not remember, but whose actions helped make us who we are, who built this country hand by hand, brick by brick. They all came here knowing that what makes somebody an American is not just blood or birth, but allegiance to our founding principles and the faith in the idea that anyone from anywhere can write the next great chapter of our story,and that's still true today."

So the fact that China is building the world’s largest Wind Power Farm too shouldn’t surprise you. The Gansu Wind Farm Project will produce 20 Gigawatts of power by 2020, and will cost nearly $20 billion to build. Turbines are going up at the staggering rate of 35 per day across the three areas that make up the power base. In 2012, Gansu’s capacity surpassed the total wind-generated-electricity produced by all of the United Kingdom, and it’s just the largest of six mega-wind farms currently under construction throughout China. But China isn’t embracing wind just to reduce its carbon emissions, it’s doing everything it can to simply keep the lights on. Some parts of the country with booming middle class populations suffer persistent electricity shortages because, just like us, people want refrigerators, dishwashers, washer and dryers, and computers in their homes, but there’s only so much energy to go around. So China’s State Council is pushing for an across-the-board renewable strategy to reduce its dependence on oil, coal and gas, the finite resources of the 20th century whose extraction and consumption are subject to constant geopolitical tensions. As a result, since 2013, China has led the world in renewable energy production, with a total capacity of 378 installed Gigawatts, coming from projects as wide-ranging as Gansu to hydroelectric power plants like the Three Gorges Dam, which spans the Yangtze River and is the world’s largest power station of any kind. In just the last 10 years, China has increased its solar panel production 100-fold to become the world’s leading manufacturer of the technology. With China now pumping more CO2 into the atmosphere than the number two and three emitting countries - the US and India - combined, it’s vital for the future of the planet that it continues using MegaProjects to create a lot more Megawatts of clean, green power.

Einstein's Gravitational Waves Discovered
 
04:53
Scientists have confirmed Albert Einstein's 100 year-old theory of gravitational waves. They were detected using a massive system of instruments called the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO). Credit to Caltech's LIGO project for most of the media used in this video: https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/news/lig...

Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-... Artist: http://incompetech.com/ Script: 1.3 billion years ago two massive, whirling black holes collided, sending a gravitational ripple through the spacetime fabric of the Universe. Like a tsunami moving through the ocean, that wave passed through space until it washed past Earth last September. 100 years ago, Albert Einstein predicted exactly this type of event--that massive objects moving in certain ways will cause spacetime ripples, or gravitational waves. But the technology did not exist back then to try and catch one of those waves and after a few years even Einstein himself began questioning the theory. It must have been incredibly bewildering and frustrating to theorize on such a grand scale, but constantly run into the limitations of man’s ability to verify the interstellar events that your core scientific ideas are based on. Time passed. And in 1979, after a series of advances in gravitational astrophysics, the National Science Foundation greenlit Caltech (the California Institute of Technology) and MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) to develop a design for a gigantic instrument capable of detecting Einstein’s gravitational waves. Fifteen years later, in 1994, construction began on the $250 million Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory, or LIGO, which is a pair of L-shaped devices with arms 4 kilometers long--one in Washington state and the other in Louisiana. They are essentially laser rulers, so precise they can detect differences as small as 1/1,000 of a proton’s width. Theoretically, that sensitivity allows them to see a gravitational wave as it moves by and stretches the arms just enough to cause the laser light to warble. But for the first eight years LIGO gathered data it did not detect any waves, so an additional $205 million was spent upgrading the system. On the morning of September 14, 2015, when the advanced LIGO had just come back online after 5 years of refurbishments, lo and behold, it caught a wave! Both LIGO detection locations recorded the same exact changes in frequency. “I knew that there was something going on because I subscribe to the logs. This particular log pointed to something that looked like it might actually be a gravitational wave. What I saw is what called a time frequency plot called a chirp and it was strong, it was unbelievably stronger than anything I expected to be a first detection. It was so strong you could see it by eye and here is the chirp at Hanford, WA and there was the chirp at Livingston, LA, and I though ‘my God, this looks like it’s it.’ It was just perfect. In fact it was almost too good to be true. When I looked at it I said, ‘somebody must have done something wrong and injected a signal.’ Nobody right away believed it. Everybody thought it was a fluke—it was too good. And it took us a while to get to the point where all of us believe it. It’s monumental. It’s like Galileo using the telescope for the first time. They’re moving at the velocity of light. Damn near that velocity. Thirty solar masses moving that fast, I mean they’re putting out incredible amounts of energy. And when they collide with one another they produce a bigger black hole, but they also produce gravitational waves. And in that process about three solar masses just disappears and goes into gravitational waves. Oh its going to be amazing. We have always said that this is going to be a field called Gravitational Wave Astronomy. Gravitational waves carry information that you can’t get from any other way. A supernova, two neutron stars colliding, even the Big Bang itself - the beginning of the Universe - all produce gravitational waves. This first detection by LIGO is the very first step. It’s just the start of the story nature is about to tell us. I would love to see Einstein’s face. I mean he would have been as dumbfounded as we are because it’s a wonderful proof that all of this incredible stuff of strong-field gravity is in his equations. Just imagine that! To me that’s a miracle!”

Mexico's MEGACITY
 
09:07
Mexico's vast capital — Ciudad de México, the largest city in the Americas — is under threat from a severe water crisis...and vulnerable to disasters like the earthquake that struck on September 19, 2017. Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ More information here: http://nyti.ms/2kFT35m Video by Bryce Plank and Robin West Music from Motion Array's library Like TDC on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thedailyconversation Follow TDC on http://www.twitter.com/thedailyconvo Transcript: What makes this place unique? It is the world’s largest city at an elevation higher than 2000 meters. With 21.2 million residents it rivals New York City for the title of largest metropolis in the Americas, and it is one of the world’s oldest continuously populated urban areas. But what truly sets this megalopolis apart is also its biggest challenge. It is the largest city on Earth without direct access to a significant body of water, although that wasn’t always the case. This is an examination of Mexico City and the water crisis that threatens its continued prosperity. Nearly seven centuries ago, the Aztecs came across an island in the middle of a lake, in a vast valley, more than 2,000 meters above sea level, hundreds of kilometers from the nearest coast. Three hundred years later, a small group of Spanish explorers led by Hernan Cortes arrived, and what they found was a thriving capital city, the heartbeat of the Aztec empire with 300,000 souls. It was called Tenochtitlan, and it amazed the Europeans. Its labyrinth of canals dividing a network of manmade islands reminded them of Venice, and they wanted it for themselves. [Dr. John Pohl] “There in the center of the lake was this gleaming white city, it was something they’d never seen before. And for us we can almost imagine it as Dorothy looking at Oz for the first time. It was far larger at a quarter of a million people than any city they’d ever seen in Europe.” Armed with superior weaponry — and the most powerful exterminating agent, disease — the Europeans wiped the Aztecs out and systematically dismantled their great temples and pyramids. Then, they set out to quickly build the most renowned city in the Americas. They rejected the Aztec way of living harmoniously with the land and, instead, filled their canals, destroyed their “floating farms,” and drained water from the lake until it was completely empty. This set the city on a collision course with nature. Over time, it has grown to cover the entire lakebed, and well beyond. And because two volcanos — one of them still active — loom over the city from the south, the soil is a mix of clay from the lake and volcanic rock. That’s an unusual foundation to build a sprawling, heavy, concrete jungle on—and it’s why the city is sinking. But people keep on arriving, because the defining feature of Mexico City is centralism, the idea that all paths lead here. What used to be trails converging on grassy highlands, became dirt roads used by carts and donkeys loaded with goods, and are now the arterial roads that move millions. The explosion of Mexico City’s population — like other megalopolises around the world — follows the widespread adoption of the motor vehicle. In 1950, its population was 3.1 million. As paved highways became more common, it jumped to 5.5 million by 1960, then it nearly tripled to 14 million inhabitants by 1980. This boom has exacerbated the city’s two most urgent challenges: bringing in enough water for twenty-one million people, while simultaneously sending away the millions of litres of wastewater they produce each day. The city is failing on both fronts. Now, it’s worth noting that crime is not Mexico City’s most pressing concern. It can be a dangerous place, but the reality is that - while the country has seen its murder rate rise as drug cartels battle for territory - the Federal District has some of the lowest crime rates in Mexico. It has installed more than 22,000 surveillance cameras throughout its 16 boroughs and put thousands more police officers on the street. Increased security keeps violent crime in check and creates opportunities for educated and artistically-inclined young people from the surrounding states. It’s a young, vibrant place with an economy that accounts for one-quarter of the country’s GDP while holding more than one-fifth of its population, that’s one of the highest capital-to-national ratios in the world. Centralism, remember? It’s neighborhoods are diverse, and flow endlessly into one another. One minute it feels like you’re in Paris, turn the corner and its Manhattan, but just a few streets over lie the rundown avenidas of Tijuana. Above all, it’s crowded. Mexico City is the most congested place in the world. Although it has an excellent, twelve line metro system that’s cheap enough for anyone to ride, its five million cars snarl the roadways on the streets above.
