Why we don't have nuclear propulsion or other shit like that? If I remember some dudes back in the 60s consider nuclear propulsion and it was fesable, what happened bros?

How are they avoiding asteroids and space trash?
>>
>>12757765
They don't, it's not that dangerous as you may think.
Asteroids are big and easy to detect, also the event of a collision is really very low.
Small meteors aren't a big problem as a small breach is easily solved.
Anyway that design is only art. A realistic model would include a shield for cosmic rays, which is just as good for meteors.

Do you believe that there was a well organized civilization on Earth before the commonly known time of the invention of agriculture?

yes
>>
>>12750729
Yes, but it's all under the sea now.
>>
>>12750729
Megalithic architecture, large urban settlements and complex social organization all predate agriculture by thousands of years.
“Civilization” doesn’t mean anything useful
>>
>>12750729
the answer is obviously yes. Finding good evidence will be difficult, and it may not be deemed of high enough value to do so. During a sufficient period of time, say 5,000 to 10,000 years it becomes very likely of catastrophic events that would wipe out intelligent, but relatively small civilizations. Rare but devastating events like massive volcanic eruptions, astroid/metorite impacts, massive landslide, floods, fires, can wipe out civilazation and destroy evidence. Also, as can be seen in China, an emperor can transform a dynamic, intelligent, exploration driven society into an inward, backward retarded civilization and destroy hundreds or thousands of years of progress, experience, and knowlwedge.e

But they do actually believe they have evidence for their beliefs. They will post NASA videos and other stuff, which is meant to prove their position. They won't actually bother with physics or math part, visual footage is the highest evidence.

Is it somehow possible to detect microwave radiation in the human body and document it? Can it be detected by bloodwork? What about MRIs or EEGs?
>>
>>12757674
no
>>
>>12757674
Microwave radiation is just a wave of energy. It's not a substance and it doesn't persist in matter. You could put someone in front of a camera that can image microwaves and see them reflecting off though.

Now, after the dust has settled, what the hell was it?

Theories:
>Hydrogen iceberg
Pros:
Could explain the strange acceleration
Possible theories on how these theoretical objects could be formed
Cons:
Such object has never been observed before
Some models predict these things would evaporate upon close encounters with stars

>Comet with undetectable comma
Pros: Explains the acceleration
Comets should be one of the most common interstellar objects
Cons: Some models predict an outgassing should shatter or deviate the trajectory of 'Oumuamua yet that wasn't observed
Weird shape for a comet
Weird tumbling motion

>Asteroid

Learn programming from scratch with strong fundamentals. /cspg/ guides and textbook packs coming soon

Topics: CS + SWE + CE + IT (muh A+ certs) + SecOps + Math

Guides:
Complete self taught pathway: https://teachyourselfcs.com/
Structured pathway: https://github.com/ossu/computer-science
AI focused pathway (warning: functional programming ahead): https://learnaifromscratch.github.io/

The first link recommends SICP as an entry, but if you want a gentler introduction to the world of computing, I'd recommend How to Design Programs. Before you complain, read:

Yes. But algorithms are eventually based upon mathematics. That being said, I definitely require algorithm study

generally, you don't need much maths for designing algorithms, only for detailed analysis of algorithms that are harder to analyze. Most of CLRS has very little math.

>>12757378

You don't need much mathematical knowledge for these competitions, just do practice problems and memorise all of the algorithms.

News shows just used videos of people like that as a "gotcha" moment that's supposed to be dramatic and somehow prove their guilt. Most of the time they can't get called out for it, but sometimes they just end up harassing an innocent person, and it's really sad. Fortunately shoe's not.
