Have questions about Soylent? Please check out our blog for more information! 7/23/13Shipping and manufacturing process update on the blog What if you never had to worry about food again? For many people, on many occasions, food is a hassle, especially when trying to eat well. Suppose we had a default meal that was the nutritional equivalent of water: cheap, healthy, convenient and ubiquitous.
03 May 2013 Combining wonder material graphene with other stunning one-atom thick materials could create the next generation of solar cells and optoelectronic devices, scientists have revealed. University of Manchester and National University of Singapore researchers have shown how building multi-layered heterostructures in a three-dimensional stack can produce an exciting physical phenomenon exploring new electronic devices. The breakthrough, published in Science , could lead to electric energy that runs entire buildings generated by sunlight absorbed by its exposed walls; the energy can be used at will to change the transparency and reflectivity of fixtures and windows depending on environmental conditions, such as temperature and brightness.

A video game that teaches how to program in Java One of the characters in the CodeSpells game environment (credit: UC San Diego) CodeSpells, an immersive, first-person player video game designed to teach students in elementary to high school how to program in the popular Java language, has been developed by University of California, San Diego computer scientists. The researchers tested the game on a group of 40 girls, ages 10 to 12, who had never been exposed to programming before. In just one hour of play, the girls had mastered some of Java’s basic components and were able to use the language to create new ways of playing with the game.
INTP Relationships, Love & Mating By Dr. A.J. Drenth While sometimes presenting as aloof or self-focused, INTPs often attract potential mates through their Extraverted Intuition (Ne) and Extraverted Feeling (Fe). These functions contribute to their wittiness, personability, and sincerity, conferring a childlike innocence that others find refreshing. INTPs are often kind and considerate, wanting everyone to feel included and treated with respect (Fe).
RodinAerodynamics.org - Marko Rodin - Rodin Coil - Waterfox -- Introduction -- Hopefully this will enable people to understand "why" there is only "one" truth and how we can all move forward in learning more about the "nature" of what that one truth is and why no single person or group of people can be the "owner" of the one truth and that literally everyone has a piece of the "enlightening" puzzle which is like a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. -- Substance -- I just figured out a great example of how two seemingly very different points of view can be demonstrated to have not only similarity but symmetricality to the point that they are saying or expressing almost, if not totally, the same exact thing! :o)
Vortex Based Mathematics - Marko Rodin - YouTube - Waterfox
Vortex Flame Amplifier/ Regenerative Combustor/ Solid Fuel/ Waste Recycling - Waterfox These are the graphic plans outlining research completed1981. Vortex geometries were studied for high temperature refractory construction. A small scale model was built and tested. In brief the essential combustor design addresses the problems of burning solid fuels for many diverse applications. Ceramic castable cements and ramming mixes were chosen because of their adaptability to form and function.

Its goal is to create a permanent settlement on the red planet that could pave the way for future space colonies. It’s a beta test for planetary colonization, and Mars One seeks to establish an environment that is a “sustainable outpost designed to receive astronauts every two years.” According to Mars One, the company has “developed a precise, realistic plan based entirely upon existing technologies. It is both economically and logistically feasible, in motion through the integration of existing suppliers and experts in space exploration.” If your dream is to be one of the first people to step foot on an alien world, Mars One may just enable it as it has set its requirements for astronauts. The chief medical director of Mars One, Norbert Kraft, a former senior research associate for NASA, discussed the trials and tribulations that lie ahead for any of the brave astronauts chosen for the Mars mission. Volunteers For Mars Colonization Wanted: Apply Today [VIDEO]
Would You Volunteer for a One-Way Trip to Mars? Would you volunteer for a one-way trip to Mars, never again to return to the Earth? That is the proposition the non-profit organization Mars One is putting forth for a group of 4 brave people with a distinct lack of nostalgia for old Mother Earth. Once on the red planet, they will establish a habitable, sustainable outpost designed to receive additional astronauts every two years. If the plan works, we will see Mars being colonized by as early as 2023… that’s 10 short years people!
"Evolution Is Not Over" --New Insights Into the Genetic Code Swiss Researchers are looking several billion years back in time, when life on Earth was just beginning to examine how a primitive protein was able to evolve. The journey into the past also afforded the scientists a glimpse into the future of synthetic biology . The first primitive life forms that developed on Earth around four billion years ago had little in common with today's organisms. They probably managed without proteins.
Mueller Planetarium to unveil mural-sized images from NASA | News Releases | University of Nebraska-Lincoln - Waterfox WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 15, 2009 Lincoln, Neb., November 11th, 2009 — Mueller Planetarium at the University of Nebraska State Museum will take visitors on a journey to the center of our galaxy when it unveils two new mural-sized images of the Milky Way's core, as seen by all three of NASA's Great Observatories: the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The stunning photographs commemorate the 2009 International Year of Astronomy and will be unveiled to the public at 4 p.m.
Aug. 3, 2011 — The theory that our universe is contained inside a bubble, and that multiple alternative universes exist inside their own bubbles -- making up the 'multiverse' -- is, for the first time, being tested by physicists. Is our universe inside a bubble? First observational test of the 'multiverse'
