BTW as it now seems the 'Ministry Of Thought Control' are not going to kick my doors in, don't you think it's time for a more honest title for this thread?  'Let's try to bait The Brits'  might be a good one.

 

It's not even been a month! Give it some time!

Yeah, but you'll all be at war with a new country or two by then, and running rampant over your own rights in the process. 

 

So how would we judge who is less free?

Looks like they'll be far too busy for me.....They'll have to start with C4 first:

Conclusion.....Probably!  :o

 

I predict a mass outbreak of 'suicide by blunt penknife' amongst C4 staff in the coming months.

 

PS - The actual reason for this whole cock & bull Skripal story has become patently obvious since the (equally fake) Douma incident.....Clearly it's all Russia's fault (despite the fact that they have disposed of their chemical stockpile), so now it seems we will have to have WWIII (which we will very probably lose).

May seems to be back-pedalling.....She has suddenly developed an interest in 'proof'! 

 

I'm guessing that someone might have just explained the precise capabilities of the S-400 Growler to her.

 

Tony Blair chucking his lot in with the pro-war camp is the best news we've seen so far.....Comments in mainstream newspaper sites (the ones that still permit such things) across the political spectrum have been universally negative, generally along the lines of 'If Bliar says it's true then it definitely isn't.'.

 

The British public are learning it seems.

 

All a bit irrelevant once Bolton is off his leash of course.....

This whole Skripal case is getting more farcical by the minute.....BZ is an incapacitating agent with a very large safety margin, not a lethal nerve agent:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3-Quinuclidinyl_benzilate

 

So clearly whoever did poison the Skripals was being very careful not to kill them.

 

How much more BS do we need before we can start growing roses on this story?

Yet the OPCW "confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury", finding that "the  toxic  chemical  was  of  high  purity". The final report states that no precursors were found, directly contradicting the RT "source" on wikipedia

Which means what exactly?  How does that rule out BZ?  Novichok is a class of agents, BZ isn't amongst those listed on the Wiki definition, but are we sure it's not part of a broader group under that name (Newcomer)?

How does this contradict the RT source?  I don't see any mention of precursors there.....Typically they aren't making their report available, but here's Spiez Labs own comments via Twitter:

 

 Some of the links in that thread are well worth following up too.....I found this one most interesting:

I watch the BBC pretty regularly and I don't recall seeing this on their news service at any time.....Why wasn't it headline news, it's some serious stuff after all?  (I wonder).  :rolleyes:

Section 1 of the report summary:

Quote

The  United  Kingdom  of  Great  Britain  and  Northern  Ireland  requested  technical  assistance from the OPCW Technical Secretariat (hereinafter “the Secretariat”) under subparagraph  38(e)  of  Article  VIII  of  the  Chemical  Weapons  Convention  in  relation  to an incident in Salisbury on 4 March 2018 involving a toxic chemical—allegedly a nerve   agent—and   the   poisoning   and   hospitalisation   of   three   individuals.   The   Director-General  decided  to  dispatch  a  team  to  the  United  Kingdom  for  a  technical  assistance visit (TAV).

 

Section 7:

Quote

The  team  was  briefed  on  the  identity  of  the  toxic  chemical  identified  by  the  United  Kingdom and was able to review analytical results and data from chemical analysis of biomedical samples collected by the British authorities from the affected individuals, as well as from environmental samples collected on site. 

 

Section 10:

Quote

The  results  of  analysis  by  the  OPCW  designated  laboratories  of  environmental  and  biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury and severely injured three people.

 

It's pretty clear. UK alleges a nerve agent was used (and has been pretty consistent that it was an attempt at murder), OPCW agrees. 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate isn't a suitable tool for murder, as you pointed out, and being developed in the 50's it isn't really a newcomer either.

According to the Russian minister of foreign affairs Sergey Lavrov, a Swiss laboratory analysing the samples detected the presence of BZ and its precursors in the substance used in the Sergei and Yulia Skripal' poisoning case.[16]

Found reference to the 'precursors' comment in this article from the Independent, it is attributed to Sergei Lavrov (haven't verified): 

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/skripals-skripal-russia-nerve-agent-bz-novichok-poison-salisbury-attack-latest-update-a8304841.html

 

The Indy seem as confused as the rest of us.....As far as I can make out, we now have Spiez, an OPCW accredited lab producing (& apparently standing by) findings contradictory to those of the British (which were apparently verified by the OPCW).....Yet the lab won't question the OPCW's verification or indeed level criticism at Porton Down, another OPCW accredited lab.

 

Do you think the OPCW might be the actual target of all this?

 

PS - Apparently we even murdered the Skripal's cat (& Guinea Pigs):

Allied missile strikes on Syria – a message from the Head of the Civil Service

In the early hours of 14 April, the armed forces of the United Kingdom, the United States and France launched a series of co-ordinated strikes on sites in Syria linked with the production and storage of chemical weapons. This was in response to the use of prohibited chemical weapons by the Syrian regime against the civilian population of Douma, whose horrific consequences were widely reported.

I want to thank civil servants in a number of departments, but especially in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, the Ministry of Defence, Department for International Development, Department for Health and Social Care (and Public Health England), Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs, and the Cabinet Office, for their work after the attack on Douma and throughout the allied operation. This response was designed to degrade the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons capability and as a deterrent to their future use.

Coming after the nerve agent attack in Salisbury just over a month ago, I also want to take this opportunity to renew my gratitude to the hundreds of public servants – at home and abroad – involved in the response to that attack and the ongoing investigation. Their work was instrumental in ensuring widespread international support for the Government’s position on Russian responsibility for the Salisbury attack and the participation of many nations in the diplomatic sanctions that followed.

We could wish it was in different circumstances. However, the response to the Salisbury incident and the chemical attack on Douma showed the public service at its best: collaborative, professional and quick to act in the national interest, even under the greatest pressure.

Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service

      Colonization Of The Solar System

       
      This thread is for discussing the colonization of the solar system, mainly focusing on Mars and the Moon since they are the most relevant. 
      Main topics include transportation, industry, agriculture, economics, civil engineering,  energy production and distribution, habitation, ethics and politics. 
       
       
       
       
      First order of business, our glories tech messiah Elon Musk has set his eyes on Mars:
      Reason stated? Because being a interplanetary species beats being a single planetary species. 
       
      How does he plan to do this?
      By sending two cargo ships by 2022 to Mars for surveying and building  basic infrastructure, then two years later in 2024 sending 4 ships, two cargo ships and two crewed ships to start the colonization. First thing would be to build fuel refineries and expanding infrastructure to support more ships, then starting to mine and build industry. 
       
      This could mark a new era in human history, a second colonization era, this time without the genocides. The economic potentials are incredible, a single asteroid could easily support the entire earths gold, silver and platinum production for a decade. The moon holds a lot of valuable Helium 3, which right now is worth 12 000 dollars per kilogram! Helium is a excellent material for nuclear reactors. 
       
       
       

       
       
      Speaking about the moon, several companies have set their eyes on the moon, and for good reason.
      In my opinion,  the moon has the possibility of becoming a mayor trade hub for the solar system.  Why is this? Simply put, the earth has a few pesky things called gravity, atmosphere and environmentalists. This makes launching rockets off the moon much cheaper. The moon could even have a space elevator with current technology!  If we consider Elon Musk's plan to travel to Mars, then the Moon should be able to supply cheaper fuel and spaceship parts to space, to then be sent to Mars. The Moon is also rich in minerals that have not sunk to the core yet, and also has a huge amount of rare earth metals, which demands are rapidly increasing. Simply put, the Moon would end up as a large exporter to both the earth and potentially Mars. Importing from earth would almost always be more expensive compared to a industrialized Moon. 
       
      Now how would we go about colonizing the moon? Honestly, in concept it is quite simple.When considering locations, the South pole seems like the best candidate. This is because of it's constant sun spots, which could give 24 hour solar power to the colony and give constant sunlight to plants without huge power usage. The south pole also contain dark spots which contains large amount of frozen water, which would be used to sustain the agriculture and to make rocket fuel. It is true that the equator has the largest amounts of Helium 3 and the best location for rocket launches. However, with the lack of constant sunlight and frequent solar winds and meteor impacts, makes to unsuited for initial colonization. If the SpaceX's BFR successes, then it would be the main means of transporting materials to the moon until infrastructure is properly developed. Later a heavy lifter would replace it when transporting goods to and from the lunar surface, and specialized cargo ship for trans portion between the Moon, Earth and Mars. A space elevator would reduce prices further in the future.  Most likely, a trade station would be set up in CIS lunar space and Earth orbit which would house large fuel tanks and be able to hold the cargo from  cargo ships and heavy lifters. Sun ports would be designated depending on their amount of sunlight. Year around sunlight spots would be dedicated to solar panels and agriculture. Varying sun spots would be used for storage, landing pads and in general everything. Dark spots would be designated to mining to extract its valuable water. Power production would be inistially almost purely solar, with some back up and smoothing out generators. Later nuclear reactors would take over, but serve as a secondary backup energy source. 
       
       
      The plan:
      If we can assume the BFR is a success, then we have roughly 150 ton of payload to work with per spaceship. The first spaceship would contain a satellite to survey colonization spot. Everything would be robotic at first. Several robots capable of building a LZ for future ships,  mining of the lunar surface for making solar panels for energy production, then mining and refinement for fuel for future expeditions. The lunar colony would be based underground, room and pillar mining would be used to cheaply create room that is also shielded from radiation and surface hazards. Copying the mighty tech priest, a second ship would come with people and more equipment. With this more large scale mining and ore refinement would be started. Eventually beginning to manufacturing their own goods. Routinely BFRs would supply the colony with special equipment like electronics, special minerals and advanced equipment and food until the agricultural sector can support the colony.  The colony would start to export Helium 3 and rocket fuel, as well as spacecraft parts and scientific materials. Eventually becoming self sustaining, it would stop importing food and equipment, manufacturing it all themselves to save costs. 
       
      I am not the best in agriculture, so if some knowledge people could teach us here about closed loop farming, or some way of cultivating the lunar soil. Feel free to do so.
       
       
      Mining:
      I found a article here about the composition of the lunar soil and the use for it's main components:

      In short, the moon has large amounts of oxygen, silicon, aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and titanium in it's soil.
      How do we refine them? By doing this.
       
      Aluminum could be used for most kinds of wiring to requiring high conductivity to density ratio. Meaning power lines, building cables and such. Aluminum is not very suited for building structures on the surface because of the varying temperatures causing it to expand and contract. Iron or steel is better suited here. Aluminum could however be used in underground structures where temperatures are more stable.  Aluminum would also most likely end up as the main lunar rocket fuel. Yes, aluminum as rocket fuel. Just look at things like ALICE, or Aluminum-oxygen. Aluminum-oxygen would probably win out since ALICE uses water, which would be prioritized for the BFRs, since I am pretty sure they are not multi-fuel. 
       More on aluminum rocket fuel here:

      https://blogs.nasa.gov/Rocketology/2016/04/21/weve-got-rocket-chemistry-part-2/
       
      Believe it or not, but calcium is actually a excellent conductor, about 12% better than copper. So why do we not use it on earth? Because it has a tendency to spontaneously combust in the atmosphere. In a vacuum however, this does not pose a problem. I does however need to be coated in a material so it does not deteriorate. This makes it suited for "outdoor" products and compact electrical systems like electric motors. Yes, a calcium electric motor.
