The Russian government will “ensure the continuity of transfer of the powers and functions of the abolished federal space agency to the state corporation for space activities,” the Kremlin said, in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The decision to liquidate the federal space agency and turn it into a state corporation was taken in January 2015. At the time, Igor Komarov, the CEO of United Rocket and Space Corporation -- a company established by Moscow in 2013 to renationalize the country’s space sector -- was appointed as the head of Roscosmos.
“The Federal Law aims to improve the management system in the space sector and maintain and develop the space and rocket industry’s scientific and production potential in the interests of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
When I think of Lemmy, of course the first song is Ace of spades. But then I recall 1916. A look at war with soul of an artist. To Lemmy, a drink and a toast. He did what few men do, he truly lived. Prost!

But critics say PiS has a hardline agenda, similar to that of Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán.

I kinda wonder what exactly prevents terrorists from buying up a bunch of drones, arming them with explosives, maybe doing a bit of tinkering to allow for higher speed/altitude/rage at the expense of battery life and then sending them to some major even like a football match or a concert.

For a big event, like the Superbowl, a big drone-free perimeter several miles in radius gives security plenty of warning. And stadiums already have large-scale signal-jamming ready to go; if you can shut down cellphone bands during a bomb threat, you can shut down RC frequencies as well.

>>11990 Should we seize people's property on suspicion? Stop being so fucking dumb anon, this is a place for intelligent discussion
For my two cents, this is wrong as hell and just goes to show how utterly broken our legal system is that this should happen in the first place, much less actually have to be battled out for SEVERAL YEARS.

cleaner emissions, relevant in California because CA has stringent air pollution standards. Converting an otherwise noncompliant vehicle from diesel to ethanol or natural gas (or even propane) is a cheap way of making compliance AND averting cap-and-trade pollution taxes. Many bus agencies and power companies (such as PG&E) already made the switch
however, due to the nature of ethanol (it has to be imported from the midwest), most companies prefer NG or propane because it's more plentiful and readily... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
