Say there was a planet identical to Earth. Same size, mass, distance from the Sun (same sun too). Pretty much just a replicate.
Do you think if life were to take hold on this planet it would evolve in the same way as it did on this earth? Starting with the sea, fish, reptiles, amphibians and such and ultimately leading to dinosaurs?
Supercomputers make discoveries that scientists can't

>IN MAY last year, a supercomputer in San Jose, California, read 100,000 research papers in 2 hours. It found completely new biology hidden in the data. Called KnIT, the computer is one of a handful of systems pushing back the frontiers of knowledge without human help.
>KnIT didn't read the papers like a scientist – that would have taken a lifetime. Instead, it scanned for information on a protein called p53, and a class of enzymes that can interact with it, called kinases. Also known as "the guardian of the genome", p53 suppresses tumours in humans. KnIT trawled the literature searching for links that imply undiscovered p53 kinases, which could provide routes to new cancer drugs.
Did CS jut kill biology?
How do I into space??

I am a healthy young human, looking to contribute to science. I think we can all see where this is going: crowdsourced spaceblog. Average idiot human, in space. Daily posts about how much I miss hamburgers and learning Russian.
Where's the advantage over having me make these rather than that beautiful Canadian man and his space sammiches? Public interest. Of course academia happily beats off over everything happening in low earth orbit, but it's not something that the average person relates to. I'm not especially deviant, not especially prone to achieve much other than a regular paycheck big enough to survive until the next. Put me in space, and you have shown the everyman where he too could be, maybe, oh maybe, catalyzing a push of the space industry to where it should have been decades ago.
I'm pretty happy, satisfied, etc... But I could actually contribute to humanity, while being at least as satisfied. Discuss?

Math sci jokes thread.
My three favorites to start.
> A physicist, an engineer, and a mathematician are asked to test the hypothesis that all odd numbers greater than one are prime.
> The mathematician says "3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 isn't prime. It's false."
> The physicist says "3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 isn't prime (could be experimental error though), 11 is prime... I'd say they're all prime."
> The engineer says "3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is prime..."
