Came across this channel a few years back when he was creating his own mine in the US, this video recently popped into my subscription box. He talks about the science behind why you can hear thunder underground before you can hear it through the air, really interesting topic.
This sounds exciting to watch but would likely set off something huge in the media and possibly a mass scare/fear in some areas around the world especially in areas that do not get much news and so not know it's a hoax. Certainly going to be interesting though. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/-alien-invasion--to-launch-in-april---but--ufos--will-be-glowing-drones-piloted-by-hoaxers-084204169.html#1tDDf4z - Yahoo news. Read some other information on this project or experiment: http://ufosightingshotspot.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/world-wide-false-flag-ufo-event-planned.html This is a quite concern at what could happen during the event, and shouldn't be taken lightly, especially when a statement like this is made and the intentions they have (the organizers of event) My idea with this interesting experiment is it is a psychological reactive experiment - to find out how people react to such events, but mostly due to and thankfully due to the Internet/media many a word gets around that it is not an attack or invasion from space by other beings but a hoax. What do you think of this and how are people likely to react? should it go ahead or be banned? should the event be allowed only in places that know about it to avoid panic? Tobor.
Some will already be aware of this, but I think it merits a separate thread. The University of Chicago is running an 8 week MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) for non-scientists about climate change. The direct link to the course is here: https://www.coursera.org/course/globalwarming This is a fabulous opportunity for absolutely anyone who has an interest in the subject, or doubts about the science, to learn the basics and understand how it all works. It is FREE. You don't have to buy anything. You can drop out if you want. You don't need any qualifications (though they suggest basic maths). It's a few hours effort a week. If, like me, you are a non-scientist who has personal opinions and ideas about AGW, or whatever, there is absolutely no reason for you not to sign up and learn. If you complete the course you get a certificate of achievement and a new-found confidence in all your discussions about the pros and cons of this important subject. I've already signed up. Who else?
