Paintballs may deflect an incoming asteroid

Quote:
In the event that a giant asteroid is headed toward Earth, youd better hope that its blindingly white. A pale asteroid would reflect sunlight and over time, this bouncing of photons off its surface could create enough of a force to push the asteroid off its course.

How might one encourage such a deflection? The answer, according to an MIT graduate student: with a volley or two of space-launched paintballs.

Researchers from the Korean Institute of Science and Technology's (KIST) Center for Intelligent Robotics (CIR) demonstrated their household service robot, CIROS, at Robot World 2012. CIROS, the third version of the robot since development began in 2005, is intended to help out around the home by performing simple chores. You can watch it prepare a salad by slicing a cucumber and adding dressing in the video below.

The first household robot, and they have to teach it how to COOK.

What if it starts cooking people?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Absolutely. Equip it with an apron, and the road to hadaka-apron for my very own maid-robo isn't suddenly sciene fiction.

Unless your job is to butcher people with a cooking knife to spearhead the machine revolution, that's not the aspect he's worried about.

Until it gets a good body design, let's keep it away from the naked apron.

Let's keep the ''naked apron'' away from any professional kitchen, there's reasons why we are wearing a full uniform .

rofl, you don't think the cucumber slices were expert? (yeah, I thought the robotics displayed was fairly "dog and pony show". Everything carefully arranged for the robot, key sequences not shown, etc.)

I thought the slices were pretty uneven. You'd think a robot would be able to move with precision if not deftness.

'Years of work' lost as Hurricane Sandy drowns rat colonies at NYU disease research l

In addition to displacing millions of New Yorkers, the catastrophic flooding and widespread power outages brought about by Hurricane Sandy have threatened a great deal of scientific research throughout the city. At New York University's Smilow Research Center in Kips Bay, the storm has claimed the lives of around 10,000 lab animals, dramatically setting back long-term studies on diseases such as cancer.

"These animals were the culmination of 10 years of work, and it will take time to replace them," Gordon J. Fishell, associate director of the NYU Neuroscience Institute, told the New York Times. The rodents in labs like Dr. Fishell's are specially bred and mutated, sometimes over years and years, to produce the effects of various diseases and disorders. The research involves studying abnormalities in brain activity that occur as a result of these mutations, gathering data that could be used to combat ailments such as cancer, autism, epilepsy, and heart disease.

I hope anti-science folks don't pile onto this, but to the pessimistic/realistic me who has friends / loved ones in advanced degree programs or doing research.. this sounds very similar..

Scientific fraud is rife: it's time to stand up for good science
The way we fund and publish science encourages fraud. A forum about academic misconduct aims to find practical solutions

It is a likely end game when science has to be funded by commercial interests who "expect results" ... meaning it isn't really fundamental research, just applied science/engineering. Its like being tortured -- you're going to give them the answer they wanted to hear.
