In this thread we post the most expensive biological research instruments we have used thus far.

Olympus BX61. I think its somewhere around $18,000 new.

Yeah I know, I haven't got to use any real toys yet.

Not for Biological research, but the most expensive piece of equipment I've used so far is a Philips XL-30 ESEM. Was told it's around 2m new.
The most expensive instrument I’ve used was a high frequency NMR machine. I think it cost well into the six figures, and I’ve heard or very high end NMR machines costing about a million
that's why all expensive equipment has service contracts

why we spend billions to explore and research space instead of our own planet?

I like the cut of this guys jib.
Because one day, we're going to need more than this planet.
Because it's not of incredible use to us and discovery for the sake of discovery is vain and gay.
Why work if you could just sit home and play vidya

Anyone know if 50% breast milk and 50% formula for a diet is as healthy as 100% breast milk? Wife has good /sci/ job and I'm in grad school online so it makes sense for me to stay at home. Could that ratio even be lower to 30% bm?

tee bee aitch anyone wanting to do this should drink nothing but Boost or Ensure for the amount of time they intend to keep their kid on fomula. Made by the same companies, made of just about the same stuff, mofos need to see how it feels and taste to suck down artificially flavored, veggie oil-coated, whey and corn syrup globules instead of the perfect natural delicious food crafted by God himself, or hundreds of millions of years of evolution, for your benefit

You will be cucked and the child will suffer tremendously from have half a man as a father.
Why do otherwise smart people make such bad decisions ?

Also your wife will never say this, but she is going to be less attracted to you if she is the breadwinner .
No matter what her politics, this will occur

just take your pills and learn to live with it
Depending on the type of Bipolar disorder the medication can be different, usually lithium is used as Mood stabilizer, SSRIs as well, and you can learn stratgeies that involve effective communication to improve interpersonal relationships. It is also useful to seek family therapy, aince closed one are required to understand your condition, and also develop strategies to help during hypomanic or manic episodes. There are unfortunately no cure, but a lot of people learn to live with it and can do wonderful things.

Hi, I'm an I.T student and I'm currently doing a small experimental study where I make an online attendance system that just uses web browsers and no hardware like RFID scanners. If I were to market this said system to a large target online (i.e i post my system specs online trying to find buyers), what are the basic output and reports expected from the system?

Am starting at the lowest level and intro physics and I'm about to start working through this book, is it good
Why not just get a normal freshman physics book?
not him but am I the only one who thinks all assigned texts suck? I have never had a textbook where I didn't find a more useful, clearer, more succinct but still thorough alternative
many time teachers use a book just because of the order of subjects to use as a guide not because its nescessarily a good book

>Nuclear submarines carry nuclear missiles
So the nuclear submarine is safer to use?But which generates or contains the most radiation?

probably the submarine since it's reactor is run hotter than a traditional plant so the radiation within has a greater density. The submarine also has lots of radioactive non-fuel substances on board (within the nuclear warheads) and it's reactor probably supports hot loading.
The reactors were designed for subs. They were never meant to be scaled up to grid size and therefore they were never safe.
The nuclear power plant poses the greater threat, but the chances of that threat eventuating are much smaller.

>snubbing this for the space shuttle

what the fuck?

Ye Olde NERVA was made in an era you couldn't clad the fuel in the reactor to keep fallout from being eroded from it into your exhaust. Modern ceramics have solved the problem, which is why NASA is working pretty hard on updated versions. The caveat is NASA's new-NERVA is intended only for vacuum use (for now) for political reasons.

you think that's bad they can create enough energy to destroy planets twice our size instantly with nuclear weapons and they don't use it for space travel potential. enjoy being trapped on planet prison.
Spend less time on Youtube.
Republicans killed it because they were doing their best to kill NASA.
i know the actual fuel is hydrogen, i meant the radioactive part.

How to get smarter? Can intelligence be increased? I’m not smart since I failed a few courses in uni. I studied for a Mass Com degree. I scored 120 IQ back in the 2nd grade.

Do I want larger size or density?
It should come down to how many hours a week you spend in a particular subject.

If you have accumulated +10,000 hours you would be an expert.
