Should you let your cat go outside? GPS study reveals the deadly consequences

Your pet cat might enjoy a romp in the yard, but local wildlife won’t be so thrilled. Cats kill up to ten times more wildlife than a comparable predator in the wild, according to a new study.

Origami antenna springs up for small satellites

A novel helical antenna that sprang from a container the size of a tuna can is now operational in orbit. Developed by Oxford Space Systems in partnership with ESA, this origami-inspired antenna is equal in length to the shoebox-sized satellite hosting it, part of a growing constellation of nanosatellites providing Internet of Things services around the globe.

@Frox are you an Social Darwinist, is it?

You voluntary promote the political agenda of this Doctor of Laws&Master of Arts, is it?

basis of conquest/colonial/capitalist pr


Conquest, Colonialism, Сapitalism are all collective forms of interaction between one group of people and another. Such forms of group interaction become available due to the organization and collective actions of many different people with different interests, when they start to act for a common goal (family, tribal, class etc.)
A common language is not enough for the success of such collective forms of activity; such forms of domination of some people over others meet with natural counteraction. A common social philosophy or ideology is required to justify the advantages of some groups over others. Thanks to the introduction of the Prussian educational standard of education in most civilized countries of the world, the social philosophy of Darwinism has been instilled for several generations already, through a 10-year regime from bell to bell during puberty. Various national and class theories of social Darwinism boil down to the fact that they proclaim struggle for existence, natural selection (survival of the fittest) and competition as the most important factors of evolution.
The postulates of social Darwinism are well grounded in the social sciences. But Darwinism itself was initially poorly grounded in the natural sciences and even rejected by academies, after confirmation of Gregor Johann Mendel's discoveries about genetic inheritance. In order to preserve the authority of Darwinism and its influence on the social sciences, academicians developed a synthetic theory of evolution. It is extremely important for the academic community to maintain this dilapidated evolutionary foundation, since all academicians without exception are fittest in the competition for academic titles, and the academic hierarchy is based on Social Darwinism.
But meanwhile, the evolutionary model of Kropotkin has long been known in the non-academic natural-scientific scholar community: Mutual Aid - A Factor of Evolution. This evolutionary theory, published 117 years ago, is well grounded, threre are many examples of stable and thriving populations prone to intraspecific and, especially, interspecific mutual aid. Animal and human examples demonstrate the advantages of mutual aid over primitive natural selection (at the time of publication, Darwinism had not yet been disproved by discoveries in the field of inheritance):
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Mutual_Aid_a_Factor_of_Evolution
Although Social Kropotkinism potentially level out academic, national and other authorities based on Social Darwinism, Kropotkin's very model of evolution is the most scientifically sound theoretical basis for describing current biological diversity.

Завоевания, колониализм, капитализм – всё это коллективные формы взаимодействия между одной группой людей и другой. Подобные формы группового взаимодействия становятся доступны благодаря организации и коллективным действиям множества различных людей с разными интересами, когда они начинают действовать ради общих целей (семейной, племенной, классовой и т.п.)
Общего языка для успеха таких коллективных форм деятельности недостаточно, подобные формы доминирования одних людей над другими встречают естественное противодействие. Требуется общая социальная философия или идеология, для того, чтобы обосновывать преимущества одних групп людей над другими. Благодаря введению Прусского образовательного стандарта обучения в большинстве цивилизованных государств планеты, уже нескольким поколениям привита социальная философия дарвинизма, посредством 10-летнего режима от звонка до звонка во время полового созревания. Различные национальные и классовые теории социального дарвинизма, сводятся к тому, что объявляют борьбу за существование, естественный отбор (выживание сильнейших), конкуренцию – важнейшими факторами эволюции.
Постулаты социал-дарвинизма хорошо обоснованы социальными науками. Но сам дарвинизм изначально был плохо обоснован и даже отвергнут академической естественной наукой, после подтверждения открытий Грегора Иоганн Менделя о генетической наследственности. Для сохранения авторитета дарвинизма и его влияния на социальные науки академиками была разработана синтетическая теория эволюции. Для академического сообщества крайне важно поддерживать этот ветхий эволюционный фундамент, ведь все без исключения академики – это сильнейшие в конкурентной борьбе за академические звания, академическая иерархия основана на социал-дарвинизме.
Но между тем, в неакадемической естественно-научной среде давно известна эволюционная модель Кропоткина: взаимная помощь как фактор эволюции. Эта эволюционная теория, опубликованная 117 лет назад, хорошо обоснована, перечислено множество примеров устойчивых и процветающих популяций склонных к внутривидовой и особенно межвидовой взаимной помощи. На примерах животных и людей демонстрируются преимущества взаимопомощи, перед примитивным естественным отбором (во время публикации дарвинизм ещё не был опровергнутой открытиями в области наследственности):
https://ru.wikisource.org/wiki/Взаимная_помощь_как_фактор_эволюции_(Кропоткин_1907)
Несмотря на то, что социал-кропоткинизм потенциально нивелирует академические, национальные и прочие авторитеты, основанные на социал-дарвинизме, сама же модель эволюции Кропоткина – это наиболее научно обоснованный теоретический фундамент для описания нынешнего биологического разнообразия.

A tremendous explosion bursts out from the Sun. Just a few minutes later and the spacecraft is bathed in radiation, blinding the star trackers it relies on to know what direction it's pointing in. The spacecraft goes into Safe Mode, like a turtle retreating into its shell. Most units are powered off, the onboard computer is rebooted and spacecraft points its solar arrays to the Sun. The control teams are left wondering what on Earth – or in space – has gone wrong.
