    Definitely a duck at first but I can see a rabbit with some effort after 1-3 seconds. And then flip back and forth. I think I've seen other versions of this image online elsewhere too, that are a little harder to flip back and forth with.

    I've been a little interested to watch this but I keep hearing its got a lot of inaccuracies and misleading info in it, much like one of the vegan docs I watched on Netflix a few years back. Almost feel like if you watch this its only a spring board to get you into the topic, where you first have to fact check all the info in this film, and then dive into the facts and fictions yourself. In that sense it does shine a light on topic, but in another I just wish some documentaries were more honest.

    I had to double check this was an actual NASA video and not a fan-made one as it's quite.. psychedelic with the music and the visuals. But really, when you discover just how binary black holes distort and bend light as they pass each other, what other choice do you have? Happy

    I heard rumors of this early on and hoped it was true as this means vaccines are viable on two fronts to stopping the spread of the virus, making it even more imperative a vast majority of us get shots.

    Awesome. I hadn't heard of that. Seems the company is called Skyrora. They also use 3d printing to make their rocket engines.

    Chemistry labs of the future are trending heavily toward being almost entirely run and operated by AI and machines. I don't just mean for the grunt work, I mean for basically everything.

    From modeling experiments to designing new compounds, to synthesizing and evaluating the result and interpreting the data. That's almost the entirety of what a chemist does!

    They are calling it 'looped intelligence' and basically it's the entire scientific method, all run by AI.

    So where will humans fit in, if labs go this route? Well they will still be the ones (in theory and for now) setting the overall objectives and then ultimately doing the final stage of 'understanding' of what the AI has created, but the vast majority will be done by very precise machinery and AI powered, computer learning software that adapts and gets better and smarter and more creative the more time in the lab it gets. Very cool, and as always a little scary.

    Basically this could speed up the rate of discovery for new chemical compounds exponentially, ones that could cure cancer or aging, or any number of things in maybe the not-too-distant future. We aren't there yet but perhaps super close.

    With that kind of network usage (which is close to mine btw) you certainly don't need to. Eventually you'll be forced to as every phone on the market will be a 5g phone but 4g isn't going away anytime soon. So you're good until you actually need a new device. We still have 3g service out there and even 2g I believe, it's just that they don't make many or any 3g phones any longer. Or should I say most phones are 4g now but of course they can still use lower bandwidth towers when they need to.

    Yeah that's interesting. I looked it up and it is a concern. So has this happened on any level in space yet?

    Yeah ironically I think that idiom applies to people stuck in their ways more than dogs. Happy

    lol that's awesome. yeah that music is terrible. Mute it for sure.
