No, it will not be a total eclipse in Amarillo, Texas, where I live, although there will be a partial eclipse. Yes I am going to see the total eclipse with my wife by traveling up to the zone of totality. Yes, this is worth it, if you're aware of the universe around you.
I do not think building a city on Mars is going to solve anything at all! First of all, it’s unlikely a city on Mars will be built due to the incredible problem of transporting parts and materials to that planet. We all would like this to happen, since we screwed this planet, to go... Continue Reading →
Kids, young adults, some of them with families and kids of their own -- do not know how to read cursive writing. It's our secret hieroglyphics, our secret code. You can write faster, the pen never leaves the paper between words, and "new" people have no idea what it says. One guy told me it... Continue Reading →

Will we find extraterrestrial life before we all die? No, because somebody just died somewhere even as I wrote this sentence. I think you really want to know if we’ll find extraterrestrial life before you die. This is unknown. We don’t know if there is life on Europa or Titan or other moons around Jupiter...

Would the speed of thought be faster than light? Hardly, since the speed of thought in our brains are a result of electrical impulses between neurons. We know this because if the brain is altered the thought changes, or ceases. These electrical impulses act fully within the laws of physics and therefore do not travel... Continue Reading →
