20/6/2017 7:39 Nighttime Rocket Launch To Create Colorful Clouds in Space: The much delayed NASA sounding rocket has a good chance of lifting off tonight too many clouds again — next attempt on June 24th with a launch window between 9:07 and 9:22 p.m. from Wallops Island, Virginia, considering the weather report. The launch window is from 9:06 to 9:21 pm local time. “Canisters will deploy between 4 and 5.5 minutes after launch releasing blue-green and red vapor to form artificial clouds. These clouds, or vapor tracers, allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space. The clouds may be visible along the mid-Atlantic coastline from New York to North Carolina.”

These clouds, or vapor tracers, allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space. The clouds may be visible along the mid-Atlantic coastline from New York to North Carolina.”

8/6/2017 9:10 Sam Harris and Charles Murray: Like many brilliant people, Sam Harris is sometimes incautious when discussing subjects outside his area of expertise, perhaps thinking that his native intelligence can compensate for a lack of deep knowledge of a subject. This syndrome was evident in Harris’ attempt to debate a real security expert about security screening, and has reappeared in a partial failure to critically engage Charles Murray in a discussion about IQ and genetics. The linked article, while in ways biased and incomplete, is at least a starting point for those wishing to understand some of the criticisms of Murray’s work.

31/5/2017 20:11 Lebanon Bans ‘Wonder Woman’: Because the star is an Israeli.

15/5/2017 12:55 Scott Adams embarks on the Johnny Hart road: I’m not sure the comparison is entirely fair, but Adams’ odd confusion about how science works is starting to leak into his strips. It’s not doing much for the already attenuated and intermittent humor value.
