Yup- EMDrive still works. And it's putting out over 100x more thrust than a solar sail per Kw. submitted by Dortex1 to science

This is a motor that uses no propellant. Which means you can accelerate for half the trip, then turn around and decelerate for the other half. Continuously.

That 1.2 mN times the number of engines will add up over a month or two...

This thing working, means that you need a nuclear reactor providing enough power for a few hundred of these, and you can take a trip in a few months to the outer planets without shooting around the sun to pick up speed.

That's not trolling. That was criticism. Not necessarily constructive or eloquent, but trolling it was not.

Why is discrimination so often labled as free speech around here? submitted by SEND_ME_YOUR_SECRET to CriticalThinking

If you do not like something that is being said, counter it with your opposing opinion. Or take a more passive approach and downvoat it. If you want to tell people what they can and can not say, then perhaps you are interested in being a part of a less democratic community. Like the "other place". I hear it's "safer" there.

Will self driving cars signal the doom of Jailbreakers? submitted by DeathorGlory9 to technology

I think "over the air" updates would be something that they would HAVE to have. So I don't think that a trip to the dealer every time you need to deal with software is likely.

I definitely think that once the AV cars are sold en-mass there will be hacks for the controlling OS.

I think that the "easiest" way to take over the controls from the AV OS would be to actually tap in to the sensors and actuators and use a "shadow OS" with a few microcontrollers to run the car. This way you keep the original install intact which allows your car to pass the inspection. The inter-car communications could be in a proprietary and encrypted protocol, in which case it would be more difficult to insert your homebrew AV OS driven car into a traffic stream. If it's only standardized, so that OSs from competing manufacturers can communicate, then you would simply fake the ID of some other car. It'll be a cat and mouse game to spot the "jailbroken" cars by Google and the like.

Ultimately, I believe that manual driving will die out within a generation after the first AV cars are available to the public. Socially it will be looked at as worse than smoking and drunk driving.
