The New Dark Age of Oil Science in Canada

leave a comment »

CBC Canada’s Fifth Estate recently presented a news documentary called Silence of the Labs that explores the massive cuts by the Federal Government of Canada to virtually all forms of science from food inspections to water quality, climate change and the dismissal of more than 2,000 federal scientists and researchers in 2014. The government’s reasoning was simple, if the research did not fit current ideologically, driven program objectives (tar sands) then is was to be cut.

Welcome Back to Mars!

Mount Sharp, Mars

This image taken by NASA’s Curiosity shows what lies ahead for the rover — its main science target, Mount Sharp. The rover’s shadow can be seen in the foreground, and the dark bands beyond are dunes. Rising up in the distance is the highest peak Mount Sharp at a height of about 3.4 miles, taller than Mt. Whitney in California. The Curiosity team hopes to drive the rover to the mountain to investigate its lower layers, which scientists think hold clues to past environmental change.

NASA’s Curiosity

Maybe we’re on Mars because of the magnificent science that can be done there – the gates of the wonder world are opening in our time. Maybe we’re on Mars because we have to be, because there’s a deep nomadic impulse built into us by the evolutionary process, we come after all, from hunter gatherers, and for 99.9% of our tenure on Earth we’ve been wanderers. And, the next place to wander to, is Mars. But whatever the reason you’re on Mars is, I’m glad you’re there. And I wish I was with you. ~ Carl Sagan

Possibilianism. A Way Out of the New Dark Ages.

leave a comment »

Kevin Kelly wrote after watching the video:

Agnostics end with the lack of an answer.
Possibilians begin with the lack of an answer.

Agnostics say, we can’t decide between this and that.
Possibilians say, there are other choices than this or that.

Agnostics say, I Don’t Know, it’s impossible to answer that question.
Possibilians say, I Don’t Know, there must be better questions.

Both start in humility, but agnosticism is bounded by our great ignorance, while possibilism is unbounded by our limited knowledge.

I think that both Dr. David Eagleman (Neuroscientist) and Kevin Kelly have shown a possible way out of the polarized and mean-spirited conversation that has captured and continues to torture mainstream America.

Molecular Imaging

singlemoleculeimaged

The detailed chemical structure of a single molecule has been imaged for the first time, say researchers.

The physical shape of single carbon nanotubes has been outlined before, using similar techniques – but the new method even shows up chemical bonds. (The bonds to the hydrogen atoms can be seen at the pentacene’s periphery)
