New Textbook/Book Request Thread deadbabies ## Mod ## 13/08/25(Sun)06:03 No. 15270 ID: f34135 [Reply] Stickied

First off, hello there, I'm deadbabies, and I will be taking over as /sci/ moderator. Rules will remain the same. Please use the report function if you see posts that violate the rules, but also do not abuse it.

I have officially expanded the scope of /sci/ a bit. You may discuss Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics here now. No science is discriminated against as long as it's of the peer-reviewed variety. If someone wants to discuss Anthropology or Social Science, by all means, let them. If you do not like it, just don't post in the thread.

The IRC channel #/sci/ is now (finally) re-registered and I am running as operator on here. Feel free to stop by and say hi. I do leave my computer idling on IRC, so check back or leave me a message if you have any ideas, suggestions, or just want to tell me off. You can get onto #/sci/ by joining the server irc.7chan.org at port 6667. You can also use SSL at port 6697 but you will have to set your client to accept invalid certificates.

ADDITIONALLY and IMPORTANTLY I have had several requests on IRC regarding the old Ebook FTP that we used to have. Unfortunately, the mod who ran it entered the military and no longer runs or maintains it. I have no plans to make another one, but if one of you guys would like to, by all means advertise here.

That being said, I'm just going to leave this link here:


You may find what you seek here.

I will be unstickying the old ebook/source articles thread. Please post any new ebooks/source articles here, and feel free to post any working links from the old thread there; I will eventually be deleting it.

>Science is facing a "reproducibility crisis" where more than two-thirds of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist's experiments, research suggests.
>"It's worrying because replication is supposed to be a hallmark of scientific integrity," 

Why do people treat the scientific method as some kind of universal solution to everything when in fact it is flawed?

Anonymous 20/10/19(Mon)08:47 No. 17032 ID: f23628

OP, science is not a monolith. It is an umbrella term. The varying fields have different problems and burden of proof. For instance, in physics when you break it all down to the subatomic level then nothing makes sense and the ”laws” of physics don’t apply anymore. Another example is the speed of light. You have no objective evidence for how fast light travels because so far no one has measured it exactly and you can only estimate the velocity with calculations which in and of themselves are pure speculation. Calling science an authority on right or wrong is just cope.

Guys, where I can find supplier for parts industrial electric motors?

Anonymous 20/04/07(Tue)13:44 No. 16902 ID: c9cecf

I heard that such industrial electric motors used in machine tools and heavy metal industry

Anonymous 20/04/07(Tue)14:56 No. 16903 ID: 107a06

For example, if you use frequency converter in your industrial enterprise I suggest you to check https://eltra-trade.com/catalog/abb-acs880 drive where you can find energyefficient and powerful drives. AS you know Semiconductor devices consist of a power part made on transistors or thyristors, and a control circuit based on microcontrollers. This electrical equipment is suitable for three-phase and single-phase drives of any purpose.

Anonymous 20/09/14(Mon)23:58 No. 17006 ID: 2292e4

You'll want to find a local company, but a general supply shop may be able to help. What specific parts do you need?

Less worried about stopping climate change since its probably too late, but could the effects be prepared for?

What do you guys think about Neuralink? Is it a danger to humanity? Is it actually possible to create such a product? How long until it gets into our lives? Will it finish anonymity? How to save ourselves?

Similar kinds of situations occurred multiple times on history, things that would terrify society when they hear about back then become normal and regular things as the time passed thanks to the great brainwashing program. So it would not be a surprise to see this brain-computing concept becoming a real and powerful system which is used by some special groups and government. These are just baby steps of those kinds of technologies to regularize that will be beneficial to those specific groups.

>i don't think most people would willingly consent to invasive surgery done on their brain, dude.
Dude, neuroprosthetics is already a thing. Been around since the 50's. Pig insulin is already a thing and xenotransplantation is next.

Quit being squeamish.

I am making a table with hexagons spaced 3/16th of an inch apart filled with epoxy. The table is approx. 30" deep and 6' long. I need to know the volume of epoxy required to pour 1/4" thick for this table.

minor typo.
Area_Of_Gap = Area_Of_Hexagon_Including_Gap - [ 3sqrt(3) * Side_Length^2 / 2 ]

Anonymous 20/07/29(Wed)00:36 No. 16973 ID: 9e8c2a

by the way, if you end up doing the calculations yourself, make sure all your measurements are in inches. that way, you can use the calculator below to find your answer in fluid ounces.

Anonymous 20/07/29(Wed)01:30 No. 16974 ID: 9e8c2a

to get the volume of epoxy to get a 1/4" thick layer on top of the hexagons: [ Volume_Of_Epoxy_Needed + (Area_Of_Table * 1/4) ].

I'm looking for the name of the persons in this story.

In the summer of 1995, there was a family of three that toured Europe in search for a "alternative" cures. The daughter had a huge stomach tumour. She looked pregnant and had to be ride in a stroller.

The authorities took away the custody of her. And she had to take tumour shrinking meds before the tumour could be removed. Because it was so entangled in the organs.

Pic unrelated, because it is prettier to look at than random tumour pics.

What are the best resources and textbooks for learning about synthetic biology and nanoscience/nanotechnology? The wiki doesn't have anything on those.

Also, what other /sci/ boards are out there?
