first_imgThere’s a small planetary object where it shouldn’t be.  New Scientist reported the discovery of a Kuiper Belt object (KBO) with a high inclination of 47° and a nearly circular orbit.  Astronomers can’t figure out how it got there.  It’s too far out to have been flung by Neptune into such a strange orbit.  They have nicknamed it Buffy, the “theory slayer.”Theories are fun, till data get in the way.  One planetary science professor years ago was heard to say that astronomers usually get stuck at some point in their models of solar system formation, and have to invoke some kind of miracle to continue on and wind up with the real worlds.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img

first_imgBrian Rohrbough, father of one of the students killed in the Columbine school shooting in 1999, spoke on CBS News “free speech” segment October 2 after the recent Amish school shooting.  Tonight (Nov. 22) on Fox News, the Bill O’Reilly show replayed an interview he had with Rohrbough about that CBS speech that led to a firestorm of reaction in the media and on the web (example).  It was taped last month on his Talking Points October 6.  O’Reilly titled it, “CBS News allows conservative point of view and all hell breaks loose.”  He especially had taken issue with a poor choice of words Katie Couric had used on her blog, “We knew when we decided to put on this segment that a lot of people would disagree with it.  We also knew some might even find it repugnant.”  Bill countered that he found nothing at all hateful in the father’s short, impassioned yet sincere statement.    What was so repugnant?  One thing was that Rohrbough had tied the massacre to the teaching of evolution.  In Media Matters Oct. 17, Erik Boehlert called these “fringe comments.”  With little sympathy for the bereaved father or his right of free speech, he said, “Rohrbough proceeded to uncork a radical-right sermon about how godless liberals were running the country by, among other misdeeds, teaching evolution in the classroom.”  O’Reilly asked Rohrbough specifically about that reference to evolution, in which he had stated,This country is in a moral free-fall.  For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum, expelling God from the school and from the government, replacing him with evolution, where the strong kill the weak, without moral consequences and life has no inherent value.The popular TV host appeared doubtful that evolution could have been a motive for the crime.  Rohrbough, however, backed up the claim without a flinch.  He told O’Reilly that evolution is implicated because it “gives the right to exterminate the weak.”  Even more startling, he claimed that tapes made by the boys before they went on the shooting rampage clearly state that they were plotting their act because of evolution.  That was evidenced further by the fact that Klebold wore a T-shirt on the fateful day proclaiming “Natural Selection.”    Rohrbough was frustrated that this evidence has not been released.  “Evolution was the basis for the attack on Columbine,” he told O’Reilly; “They said it themselves.  Unfortunately, the sheriff’s department won’t release the tape.”Why won’t they release the tape?  Possibly because it is vulgar and filled with foul language; maybe because they fear emotional trauma to the families.  Or, perhaps it is considered too “politically incorrect” to link such an evil deed to evolution, lest the image of Saint Darwin be dishonored.  Here’s a cause for concerned citizens to get involved and demand that the truth come out.  Darwinists may claim till the mutant cows come home that evolution is merely a scientific theory with no moral strings attached, but students know how to connect the dots to nihilism.  Need proof?  Revisit our 08/31/2006 entry.(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img10 December 2010 South Africa’s new national space agency will coordinate the country’s major space projects, promote space science research, develop related engineering and technological capacity, and devise and implement a national space programme. South Africa has some of the best space infrastructure in Africa, and is already heading some notable space projects, including Africa’s bid to host the Square Kilometre Array, the Southern African Large Telescope, and the SumbandilaSat satellite. The South African Space Agency (Sansa) will become the umbrella body that coordinates all these projects, while integrating the country’s existing science and technology institutions, such as the Satellite Applications Centre run by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research at Hartebeesthoek, west of Pretoria.Space industry ‘big business’ Speaking at the launch of the agency and the National Space Strategy in Johannesburg on Thursday, Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor said the space industry had enormous potential for growth. Space science and technology were significant contributors to sustainable development on the African continent, and the South African Space Agency had a crucial role to play in this, Pandor said. Growing South Africa’s space capabilities would not only be of huge value to the scientific community in the southern African region, but would also help in addressing the challenges of health care provision, water resources, agricultural mapping, and urban planning and communications. The South African Space Agency would help develop a formal space programme over the next five years, Pandor said. It will promote research in the areas of astronomy, earth observation, communications, navigation and space physics, while growing scientific, engineering and technological competencies through human capital development and outreach programmes.Boosting South Africa’s international profile The agency will also promote cooperation on space-related projects between South Africa and the international community, with an eye to fast-tracking South Africa’s role in international space activities. At Thursday’s launch, Sansa signed memorandums of understanding relating to data access with Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research and the China Centre for Resources Satellite Data and Application. According to the International Astronautical Federation, there are about 74 companies that trade in the aerospace and defence sector in South Africa. The federation will hold its 62nd International Astronautical Congress in Cape Town in October 2011 – the first time the event will take place on African soil. In September, the South African Astronomical Observatory in Cape Town was chosen to host the International Astronomical Union’s Office for Astronomy Development, which will play a key role in taking astronomy to the developing world. South Africa beat about 20 countries in its bid to host the office, which will play a central role in coordinating and managing International Astronomical Union educational activities, as well as in recruiting and mobilising volunteers.
