THE MUSKULARITY UPDATE: City-to-city travel by "Big Fucking Rocket"

quote [ Elon Musk proposed using SpaceX?s forthcoming mega-rocket (codenamed Big Fucking Rocket or BFR for short) to lift a massive spaceship into orbit around the Earth. The ship would then settle down on floating landing pads near major cities. Both the new rocket and spaceship are currently theoretical, though Musk did say that he hopes to begin construction on the rocket in the next six to nine months.

Musk showed a demonstration, claiming that it will allow passengers to take ?most long-distance trips? in just 30 minutes, and go ?anywhere on Earth in under an hour? for around the same price as an economy airline ticket. ]

Oh, God, is there never to be any age of happiness? Is there never to be any rest?

Saudi to lift driving ban on women

quote [ King Salman issues an order allowing women to be given driving licences for the first time.

Government ministries are to prepare reports within 30 days and the order will be implemented by June 2018, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world to forbid women from driving.

Rights groups have campaigned for years to allow women in Saudi Arabia to drive, and some women have been imprisoned for defying the rule. ]

Saudi Arabia dips a toe into the twentieth century.

London to Tokyo via the Trans-Siberian railway

quote [ Passengers might soon be able to travel from London to Tokyo on the Trans-Siberian railway via an 8,400 mile route, in an ambitious proposal by the Russian government. The project would involve constructing a 28-mile bridge that would allow trains to cross the East Sea. Beginning in London, the train would take travellers through the heart of Russia before concluding in Wakkanai, Japan. ]

What could possibly go wrong?

Human Forms in Nature: Ernst Haeckel?s Trip to South Asia and Its Aftermath

quote [ An early promoter and populariser of Darwin's evolutionary theory, the German biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel was a hugely influential figure of the late 19th century. Bernd Brunner looks at how a trip to Sri Lanka sowed the seeds for not only Haeckel's majestic illustrations from his Art Forms in Nature, for which he is perhaps best known today, but also his disturbing ideas on race and eugenics. ]
