Apparently this is a huge deal? I need to find someone who knows physics to explain this to me.

Conversations With a Six-year-old on Functional Programming

https://byorgey.wordpress.com/2018/05/06/conversations-with-a-six-year-old-on-functional-programming/

I'll admit I got clickbaited by this title. I was wondering what a guy could possibly talk about with a six year concerning functional programming. Turns out it's just this cutesy bullshit article about him playing math games with his son.

It's begun! A programming error in a self driving car, what do you expect. Also Uber is super sketchy.

NASA Completes Full-Power Tests of Small, Portable Nuclear Reactor

https://www.engadget.com/2018/05/02/nasa-completes-full-power-tests-small-nuclear-reactor/

Just like in The Martian! So the mars rover used solar panels, but dust kept on covering them so the rover shuts down. By sheer luck, wind storms regularly blow the solar panels clean and that's how the rover is able to keep working. For newer missions, NASA plans to just screw the solar panels and put a nuclear reactor directly into the rover. Cool plan, imo.

Inkjet Printing of High Performance Transistors with Micron Order Chemically Set Gaps

Ignore all this academic speak bullshit. They made printable transistors. That's pretty cool I guess.
