So maybe everything about 2020 isn't sucking after all. :D

Heck yes, definitely a blessing in disguise.

Well, I can't be sure of that until I worked a month or 2 at the place but it is looking good. The difference between a good and a bad job is often who you work with after all.

But I do feel rather happy about it, with the pandemic unemployment is up all over the world so getting a new job isn't easy.
My kind of job isn't super common but there isn't much people with the knowledge and experience for it either so if there are a couple around I had pretty good chances. In fact I was interviewed at 2 different places recently but the other guys seems either slower or didn't bother to inform me they picked someone else (but they didn't sound like they were in a hurry, so I guess their loss).

I know some people in NS who had it worse them me though, a friend worked for a traveling agency in the Philippines and he got laid of in early Mars and haven't been around NS since April, I hope he is fine. And there are a few others from NA and EU as well.

Work might suck sometimes but being unemployed is horrible, particularly if you are so for a long time. Plenty of spare time and no money is a really bad combination. It wasn't so bad for me since it was 5 weeks, that is more like a vacation even if the uncertainty was tough. And I did have enough money for 4 months or so if worst have came to worst (took a slight dip in my "buy a Mustang account") it wouldn't be that terrible but many people live from paycheck to paycheck.

Luckily I have been blessed to stay steadily employed if not getting overtime in the beginning of Covid.

Wow, scientists have figured out that smoking weeds when pregnant is bad for the kid... I could have told them that, seems like a waste of resources to me.
I think we already are pretty sure that drugs and booze are bad during pregnancy, and that includes tobacco. Now, Coffee could be worth researching, it could have some effect and certainly more on different prescription drugs but this study seems more useless then the guys who made alligators breath helium.

Makes one wonder who decides to fund certain projects. Science is important, but funds are limited so it seems smarter to put those money on something like a cure for cancer, solide batteries or maybe those windfarms that doesn't require huge propellers (no noice, no dead birds and can be put on high buildings without being ugly).

Just saying, what is next? A study if breathing in water might make you start drowning?

Ivory tower morons care more about answering stupid questions than benefiting mankind, which is the point of all science I should hope!

Apostate wrote:Ivory tower morons care more about answering stupid questions than benefiting mankind, which is the point of all science I should hope!

Agreed, but there are some exceptions. The Japanese 60 feet robot based on the Gundam anime they just completed is fine in my book even if the benefits to mankind there is a bit doubtful.

It at least is awesome. :) And who knows, maybe it eventually leads to something useful. Military science is getting a lot of funding and you can make the same argument there, much military technology have become useful for civilians too, like jet engines for instance. The first "real" planes using the technology were the Me 262 but now they mean we can travel faster. The Manhattan project lead to us getting carbon neutral energy for an acceptable price. And so on.

More studies of things we already know is another matter. With a finite funding it is important to focus on things that is actually useful.

In some cases private industry shows the way. Space X certainly have shown us a few things the last few years, particularly if you compare their progress on Starship compared to NASA's Artemis project. NASA have spent over 10 years and an insane amount of money on their new rocket who is designed to get to the moon, while Space X have passed them in just a couple of years with a far more modest budget. Heck, NASA spent a lot of money to modify rocket engines meant for the space shuttle, which made them cost more then building new ones from scratch. That said, it might still be useful to NASA to have alternatives to Space X's Mars rocket, but SLS huge cost compared to Starship even though Starship is way more powerful makes one wonder if they shouldn't consider how they develop things like it.

But there are certainly things private companies have no interest in researching that is still worth learning. Like the fact that smoking leads to cancer for instance. I ain't complaining about research like that.

Just more government pork.

In SLS case, it is a bit more strange. The rocket is far less powerful then the Saturn rocket, it is slightly cheaper (counting Saturn in today's money) but not much at all and it have actually already taken longer to build.

You could argue that NASA had better budget during the space race but the Artemis project is using a lot of Apollos infra structure like launchpads, spaceport, factories and so on (I am not counting that in for the price comparison between rockets) but I don't think that is relevant here.

SLS will (hopefully) be a lot safer though.

Starship in comparison is low budget but it has stats close to Saturn.

So the question is why NASA bothered too create a new rocket that in many ways are worse then one they already are familiar with. The Lunar landar is a very different matter, the new one will be way better and the crew capsule are also a step forward. I feel that they either should have gone bigger or just used a slightly updated Saturn instead.

I am guessing it has to do with politics though. The cheapest solution would have been to throw some extra money on Elon Musk but I am saying that with a knowledge NASA and the politicians lacked 10 years ago. Few people believed Space X would accomplish what they already done and people were laughing at Starship just 2 years ago. In fact, we are still laughing at Musk's claims of sending a manned expedition to Mars in 2024... And now NASA have put a lot of money on SLS so they might as well finish the project.

(Yeah, I might have spent a bit too much time watching youtube the 5 weeks I was temporary unemployed learning all this and far more).

Nothing wrong with that, I like watching documentaries on various subjects.

I wa sin my pool this summer at night floating and looking at the sky. I saw a string of satellites go but, I thought they were aliens. I googled it right quick and it turned out Spacex had just deployed 60 satellites and they were spreading out. It was shocking but also awe inspiring to see what private industry can do. 60 at a time!
