Research: Moon colonies could be (partially) built with human urine

Colonies on the Moon or Mars could, one day, be manufactured — in part — from using human urine. The waste we flush away on Earth could play an important role in constructing the first permanent colonies in space, a new study finds. Urea extracted from urine could be used as a plasticizer, forming concrete for use in building living quarters, a new study finds. These structures could then shape the makeshift concrete using large 3D printers. The European and Chinese space agencies, along with NA...

Bill Murray Explains How He Was Saved by John Prine

Judging by the outpouring of affection in online comment sections, Chicago folk musician John Prine (may he rest in peace) has helped a great many of his fans through tough times with his humanist, oft-humorous lyrics. Add funny man Bill Murray to the list. Taping a video in support of The Tree of Forgiveness, Prine’s first album of new material in over a decade, Murray recalled a grim period in which a deep funk robbed him of all enjoyment.

Trump Signs Executive Order To Support Moon Mining, Tap Asteroid Resources

An anonymous reader quotes a report from President Donald Trump signed an executive order today (April 6) establishing U.S. policy on the exploitation of off-Earth resources. That policy stresses that the current regulatory regime -- notably, the 1967 Outer Space Treaty -- allows the use of such resources. This view has long held sway in U.S. government circles. For example, the United States, like the other major spacefaring nations, has not signed the 1979 Moon Treaty, which stipula...

The Incipient Antarctic Accent.

Last December Susanne Bard reported for SciAm about an unexpected but not actually surprising development: University of Munich linguist Jonathan Harrington [is] interested in how accents first get started. But because of global communication, most communities are no longer linguistically isolated, and audio recording equipment didn’t exist back when more of them were. So how to capture the early stages of accent formation today? Harrington and his team turned to members of the British Antarctic...

Weekly Astrology Forecast April 6 – 12, 2020

Many of us are beginning to feel the burn with restrictions to our freedom, so we need to be conscious of how we channel our frustrations.

Stoners cheered when Canada legalised cannabis. How did it go so wrong?

Growers have gone bust, and the black market is still thrivingThe lights shone more brightly than anything I’d ever seen.

Life found in rocks beneath the ocean floor give scientists hope of finding life on Mars

Discovery of life in solid rock deep beneath sea may inspire new search for life on Mars

Newly discovered single-celled creatures living deep beneath the seafloor have provided clues about how to find life on Mars. These bacteria were discovered living in tiny cracks inside volcanic rocks after researchers perfected a new method cutting rocks into ultrathin slices to study under a microscope. Researchers estimate that the rock cracks are home to a community of bacteria as dense as that of the human gut, about 10 billion bacterial cells per cubic centimeter.
