New Era In Space Exploration Taking Off: Entrepreneurs Step In Where Big Government Left Off This post is written by Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom, VP of Operations for Singularity University. She spent two decades in the private space sector working on program development and operations for companies and organizations like Space Adventures, Odyssey Moon and the International Space University. She co-authored the book Realizing Tormorrow: The Path to Private Spaceflight. Go SpaceX! Space exploration has always been deemed too expensive and difficult for private enterprise, a realm that only massive government programs could hope to enter. And now with the recent NASA Space Shuttle retirement, and thousands of displaced NASA employees wondering where the future of NASA will be, it is therefore easy for the world to paint a bleak future of space exploration. Last month, SpaceX launched the Dragon on a Falcon 9 rocket, an orbital transport system capable of ferrying astronauts and rendezvousing with the International Space Station. Other groups are focusing on novel propulsion systems.

A trustworthy guide to black hole astronomy Black holes are some of the most bizarre objects predicted by theoretical physics that actually exist in the cosmos. While many of the more exotic ideas about black holes coming from string theory and other quantum gravity models are far from testable, the existence of astrophysical black holes is uncontroversial. Even if you insist on separating out the observed black holes from the theoretical black hole properties (including everything that lies inside the event horizon, the boundary beyond which nothing can escape), we still have reason to believe they are the same thing. Black holes are real. In Caleb Scharf's forthcoming book, Gravity's Engines, the focus is on the observed and observable properties of astrophysical black holes. The subtitle—How Bubble-Blowing Black Holes Rule Galaxies, Stars, and Life in the Cosmos—may be a trifle grandiose, but the book itself is an excellent overview of the state of black hole research.

About Ruby’s Growth Since its public release in 1995, Ruby has drawn devoted coders worldwide. Ruby-Talk, the primary mailing list for discussion of the Ruby language, climbed to an average of 200 messages per day in 2006.
