TPD Podcast EP: 003
Click here to listen



For this week, we covered:
  1. Sim Earth - Recent test simulations show that massive, close-orbiting gas giant planets can actually provide a save haven for Earth-like waterworlds.
  2. Quantum Entanglement - The rise of new computing methods could hail the new era of quantum computers.
Special: EM-Theory
New developments in space propulsion technology could change the way the world runs, or rather, hovers.



Pictured above is the funnel-type propulsion technique used for EMdrive. A basic overview on the propulsion technology goes along the lines of converting solar thermal radiation into microwaves, then shooting them down this funnel, causing a force.

While I thought he went out of the realm of coherency, Andrew's Thought Experiment this week deals with predicting randomness.
