53 voter have came in and I feel like there wasn’t going to be any more so here are the results of what kind of Science related posts people prefer. I am happy the way it came out because my AP exams are coming up and I was hoping to write about what I learned which would fit the formal educational posts category.
Hopefully some of this is useful to anyone else out there besides me and thank you for your vote if you have voted.
In response to the last post I just made I decided to make a quick poll to see what people like on Tumblr. You can click here or the link below to get there. Please reblog this post to get the most responses possible, thanks.
Or is Tumblr full of people who find an interesting article and copy and paste a paragraph or two into the description with the source. I don’t mind the sharing of good science material but I’m not sure if I find any blog who writes their own material, something from what I seen is lacking on Tumblr. Let me know what you think! ?
A team of international scientists have entangled two photons together that have a minimum of 103 dimensions, shattering the previous record of 11. The immediate application of this discovery is a breakthrough in quantum computers and security.
My school is going to an Elementary School to teach science
My partner and I have chosen to teach the basics of aircraft design to them through the use of paper air planes. In my research I have found an amazing resource to simplify aircraft design which I had to share. Click on the picture above to click Here to go to the source.
Elon Musk, the man originally behind Paypal, now running SpaceX, Tesla Motors and partner in Solar City who also proposed the idea of the HyperLoop, is now going to produce batteries. He is setting up the Gigafactory, a large scale factory dedicated to building lithium ion batteries for a low cost.
He is doing this so he can reduce the cost of his new Tesla car coming out. The battery pack is expensive so he is starting his own factory to reduce the cost bringing the human race inexpensive lithium ion batteries. The factory requires a massive amount of energy so Elon, being the green giant he is, is using part renewable resources to power the plant.
Not only that, he is researching into making lithium ion batteries safer. Currently the electrolyte in the batter is ether, a highly flammable material. You don’t want the base of your car full of ether. So Elon is hiring researchers to find alternatives. One of the proposed ideas is to use oxygen from the air which is a great innovation. It’s things like this that make Elon one of my idols!
A long time proponent of scientific literacy and space exploration, Bill Nye is the CEO of The Planetary Society, whose stated goal is to empower the world’s citizens to advance space science and exploration. We at Penny4NASA have utilized them many times for great insight regarding NASA’s budget constraints both in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Recently, The Planetary Society released a blog post focusing on the FY2015 NASA Budget, and ultimately how it impacts planetary science going forward.

An appropriately financed planetary science budget is vital towards the longevity of the Cassini and Curiosity exploration missions. Please ensure that your elected officials are aware of the importance of exploring and studying the Cosmos.
Hilbert’s Paradox of the Grand Hotel works like this. You have an infinite amount of rooms and every one of these infinte amount of rooms have a guest staying in them. So you have an infinite amount of occupied hotel rooms in your grand hotel. A man comes up to the reception desk and asks for a room, instead of turning him away because there is no vacant rooms the receptionist manages to find him one?
The solution that I was told was to move every single guest over one room so everyone gets a room but the first one is then left free for the new man to enter.
But here the kicker that I don’t understand how this is a solution!
You will be left with a chain of people moving over to the next room that will go on forever since the rooms are infinite. That means that there will always be 1 person who does not have a room at any point in time. This is equivalent to swapping the newcomer (Man A) with the guest in room 1 (Man B) and switching it alternatively.
I believe the only reason it sounded like a solution earlier is because we want each guest to have a room for a decent amount of time, its unfair to repeatedly kick someone out of his room and put him back in regardless of the fact that physically they are equivalent. The so called solution just presents the same problem in a different manner!
