“Houston, I think we reached the moon.”
“The idea of an elevator that could transport humans into space with ease has long been a fantasy of science fiction writers. However, a new form of carbon ribbon could actually make it possible.
Motivated by a $4 million funding prize from NASA, the team at Cambridge University developed a light, flexible ribbon that is believed to be the world’s strongest. Currently, the team is producing 1 gram of the material per day, enough to stretch to 18 miles in length. According to Alan Windle, professor of materials science at Cambridge, NASA wants 144,000 miles of the stuff—but he notes that it would take an industrial level of production to make that happen.
Still, this once preposterous idea is actually gaining some traction. The Japanese have already seriously considered making one out of carbon nanotubes and some believe that this new project could get the job done in as little as a decade. I’m not buying that—but I’m still keeping an open mind. [Times Online via io9]”
1g per day? Hmm…I am taking Materials science and engineering how tough it would be to iron out the imperfections at the atomic level but…I guess it’s still pretty far away from completion. Now where’ my gundam?
Btw, anyone still wants PSP Gundam 00?
Here’s something for the Gundam and UVERworld fans alike. UVERworld had released the PV for their latest single, Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi, which was used for the opening theme for Gundam 00 season 2. So my verdict? The song sounds way better in the OP rather than the full PV cover. Either way, the fans would definitely be itching to have their hands on this PV. For the full PV rip, click here.
I gotta say this : This is the BEST episode so far for season 2. It’s full of win and GAR from setsuna and crew. Epic battle scenes. Watch this space for the full review some time soon, got lots of schoolwork these few days. Waking up at 0700hrs and leaving school at 2000 hrs is no joke two days in a row. In the meantime, shock and awe from the powderful gundams!
Recycling is goood.
This episode builds up from episode 1 as setsuna gathers the remaining personnel for celestial being, namely Lynes and Sumeragi. There sure is a lot of hints and questions of future plots from the OP and ED so I will just note down my thoughts together with a brief summary. I have many pictures which I wish to caption but due to time constraint, I could only insert all of them as a gallery and hyperlink them to my ‘review/summary’. Hope you guys enjoy the screenies as much as I do.
I was going to put all the shows into one BIG post, but I’d have trouble getting through the whole thing, so I’d assume you, reader, would get bored too. So I’m going to cover 4 shows at a time. Keep tuned!
A = If you watch anything this season, watch this
B = Very good, sometimes surprisingly so.
C = If you have the time, you should check this out
D = Not my kind of thing, I won’t be watching this
E = Bad. Very bad, ignore this show
F = Frustratingly awful
