could reincarnation be possible from a physical standpoint? Like, given massive quantities of time is it possible that all the matter that made up me will one day make up a new person, or multiple people or animals, and I will one day have a new consciousness? Or is it possible that time is cyclical and I will one day be myself again living the same life?

Is there any point in learning Maple extensively? It seems like an easy choice but does it allow even nearly the level of freedom that is provided by Matlab or Mathematica? And have I understood correctly that making your own script is essentially a requirement when using Matlab or Mathematica?

Is it possible to create a cipher or some other cryptographic tool to find any message you want in a random string of numbers or characters?

Does this mean anything? or is it entirely bullshit?

Shield theory from uranium

Shield theory from uranium 17 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Shields. If we take atoms of Uranium, stable model - not Fissionable - we should be able to speed the up into the MHz range and create a stable barrier. It should work, and will work even inside ships because the speed won't be at maximum potential until it surrounds. It's a natural bubble effect that electron clouds create, and should work at high speed. PhD Chemist asking for answers lil drunk sorry

Hi /sci/ I'm looking for other online communities for talking about science and math. Right now I mostly lurk around freenode ##math . It is mostly people asking for help with homework problems though. Does anyone have any recommendations for semi-casual math/science communities?

Why did the thread on algebra 2 being taught in schools get deleted, meanwhile threads on rape, intelligence discrepancies between the genders/races, and 5 million EMDrive threads are still up?

I am starting a double major in geography and physics soon. And I have to make a decision within this year because depending on what I master in in 5 years I have to take specific courses. Regarding job prospects, future and general working conditions: Would geophysics or geoinformatics be the better choice?

Let's say empty space had room temperature and there was a floating water drop of the size of earth, what would happen? Would it have a ice core caused by the pressure? Would it be possible for life to develop? How would an asteroid impact look like?

why is the universe so fucking big? what the fuck

Give me a hand with some simple ideal Chemistry /sci/. Mayer's relation states Cp - Cv = R. In the case of water: Cp is 1cal/g*K Cv is 0.47 cal/g*K R is a constant that has a bazillion representations, the most close for this excercise being 1.98 cal/mol*K According to the math, Cp - Cv =~ 0.53 cal/g*K How the fuck do you actually get to R = 0.53 cal/g*K doing unit conversions from the 1.98? I tried to use the molar mass of water and no dice.

Viability of Ancient Technology

Viability of Ancient... 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Greetings /sci/ I am from /tg/ and I have a few questions. A common trope in tabletop fantasy rpgs is ancient futuristic technology. Many of these stories involve this technology being thousands of years old. That part has always bugged me because I don't think any piece of advanced tech could survive for that long. Would things such as computers and other devices (tech from our time) survive a thousand years in some cave without the circuit boards crumbling and rusting? I doubt any of it would last 1000 years, but is 100 years possible? Woudl a fully loaded revolver last even 50 and still fire? Second question, what would it take to make a device that would survive a thousand years and still be usable?

Let's talk about nuclear fusion, /sci/. This seems to be one of the most exciting times in the history of research into the field. EMC2 proved plasma confinement in the polywell reactor. Focus Fusion is getting their new cathode machined. Helion Energy is preparing for a break-even reactor in 2019. General Fusion is sucking up funding and publicity. And Tri-Alpha is lurking in the background. For maybe the first time ever, I'm actually optimistic about fusion. It seems like things are moving quicker than they ever have, and important milestones keep getting reached.

Lets talk posthumanism What do you think things will be like when humans have moved past being human? What will it be that moves us forward to something unrecognizable as human?

/sci/, why do they hand out MDs to retards? http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/us-confirms-2-americans-with-ebola-coming-home-for-treatment/2014/08/01/c20a27cc-1995-11e4-9e3b-7f2f110c6265_story.html >can't control primitive emPATHETIC urge to help dead men get high on morphine >contract Ebola This isn't what intelligent people do. Also this virus sure is under control, that's why those with all the hazmat equipment are even getting infected. Why should I trust their belief that they can contain it when they're getting infected themselves, /sci/? They lack even the semblance of credibility by this point.
