Cosmos got 12 million viewers in the US across the different networks it was shown on, 17.5 million if you include DVR.

Science on Fox?  Wat?

Science on any network other than PBS is weird.

The Walking Dead season 4 premier got 16 million, so for a science show I think that's pretty damned good.

:doh: I saw that earlier, no wonder it took Janeway 7 years to get her crew home from the Delta quadrant.

"I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called THE PRINCIPLE. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in SLATE. I am not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. More importantly, I do not subscribe to anything Robert Sungenis has written regarding science and history and, had I known of his involvement, would most certainly have avoided this documentary. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that. I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused. Kate Mulgrew

Scotty was wrong. You can change the laws of physics.


It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.  It's possible there is a faulty assumption somewhere or the fact that they're testing it in atmosphere is making the whole thing flawed.  If not, it'll mean every single satellite in space will be replaced by one half its size and weight that won't ever run out of fuel.  It'll also mean that you can make continuous acceleration ships (which would create artificial gravity to the extent of whatever speed you were accelerating at) that would reach speeds that massively surpass what we can presently achieve.

This is either all garbage or a Wright Brothers moment.
