Kids from the 1960s imagine life in the year 2000 and their predictions are eerily accurate (msn.com)

The 40-second-long clip starts with a boy saying, "People will be regarded more as statistics than as actual people." A girl then offered her opinion and said: "I don't think it's going to be so nice. I think, sort of, all machines everywhere, everyone doing everything for you. You know, you'll get all bored and I don't think it will be so nice."

Another young girl then appears and talks about how work would be scarce for people. "First of all, these computers are taking over now. Computers and automation and in the year 2000, there won't be enough jobs to go around and the only jobs there will be, it will be for people with high IQ and those who work computers and such things," she said.
We were so smart back then. What happened? :unsure:

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Scientists have revived a worm that was frozen 46,000 years ago — at a time when woolly mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers and giant elks still roamed the Earth.

The roundworm, of a previously unknown species, survived 40 meters (131.2 feet) below the surface in the Siberian permafrost in a dormant state known as cryptobiosis, according to Teymuras Kurzchalia, professor emeritus at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden and one of the scientists involved in the research.

The flat-earthers insist these photos are made with a special camera because NASA is totally part of the conspiracy. They admit it! Look!

The usual picture or map of the solar system is not drawn to scale since the distances are so enormous. This web page is. On a pc, scroll with the right arrow key. I found it kind of fascinating, the amount of vast empty space.

A few years ago, a student st the local high school didna "scale model" of the solar system along a bike trail leading out of town. I went out and rode my bike out that direction. I think even at Jupiter, maybe just Mars, I could still see my car parked in the little lot. I know that through Mars it was like 50 yards or something small.

By the time I got to Pluto, I could see the next small down very close. Google says the distance is 6.2 miles and a 32 min bike ride. To see basically a pinhead (maybe a golf ball).

Leonardo da Vinci lived from 1452 to 1519. Over the course of his life, the Italian Renaissance man proved his genius across multiple fields, including painting, drawing, inventing, and anatomy. His Codices in particular hold the internal workings of his mind. Spanning about 6,000 pages, these collected notes can now be explored through an online experience, aptly called Inside A Genius Mind, which was created by a fascinating collaboration of AI technology and human scholarship.

I meant to post this story last night, but I forgot to, and as of this afternoon it is superceded by the latest update:

Russia's first lunar mission in decades crashes into the moon


The news comes a day after the spacecraft reported an “emergency situation” as it was trying to enter a pre-landing orbit, according to Roscosmos.

“During the operation, an emergency situation occurred on board the automatic station, which did not allow the maneuver to be performed with the specified parameters,” Roscosmos shared in a Telegram post on Saturday.

The spacecraft was meant to complete Russia’s first lunar landing mission in 47 years. The country’s last lunar lander, Luna 24, landed on the surface of the moon on August 18, 1976.
