Science that supports right-wing ideals will get less funding and science that supports left-wing ideals will get more. The vast majority of researchers will be unaffected, since there are relatively few fields that have any significant political charge. Although Democrats like to tout themselves as "the party of Science™," they're really no better that Republicans.

I noticed something my master's in engineering and the same applies to many colleagues of mine.

Females in grad school are often below average in looks and i cannot think of one who can be considered attractive, this is in stark contrast with the undergrads.

Maybe some of you will say it's age since they are older but we are tallking like 25 year olds here so its still young.

Could it be that smarter females are uglier and cannot depend on a man or is there something else at play?

Imo, most of the female TA's I've had in my engineering and math courses were probably prettier in their undergrad. I think it's just due to the general stress and the lack of time that comes with doing grad studies. When you're studying 8 hours a day plus doing TA/RA work another 2 to 3 hours, it doesn't leave a lot of time to do stuff that's superfluous. Plus I remember in my undergrad how little of a fuck I gave about my appearance when shit got busy. I can imagine it being worse in grad school.

Do you think there is a limit to how much knowledge can be gained, /sci/? Every year we have to have more and more background 'historical' science for students to learn. People like Euler were polymaths simply because of a lack of previous large fundamental knowledge about mathematics. Today a high schooler may be required to learn these concepts. I'm not saying inventing and learning a concept are comparable, but about a shear amount of background one has to go through today.

>Srinivasa Ramanujan FRS (/?srJnJv??s r???m??n?d??n/;[1] born Srinivasa Ramanujan Aiyangar; 22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920)[2][3] was an Indian mathematician who lived during the British Rule in India. Though he had almost no formal training in pure mathematics, he made substantial contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions, including solutions to mathematical problems then considered unsolvable. Ramanujan initially developed his own mathematical research in isolation: according to Hans Eysenck: "He tried to interest the leading professional mathematicians in his work, but failed for the most part. What he had to show them was too novel, too unfamiliar, and additionally presented in unusual ways; they could not be bothered".[4] Seeking mathematicians who could better understand his work, in 1913 he began a postal partnership with the English mathematician G. H. Hardy at the University of Cambridge, England. Recognizing Ramanujan's work as extraordinary, Hardy arranged for him to travel to Cambridge. In his notes, Hardy commented that Ramanujan had produced groundbreaking new theorems, including some that "defeated me completely; I had never seen anything in the least like them before",[5] and some recently proven but highly advanced results.

That ambiguity cuts both ways. We might be able to improve our tech geometrically over the next 10,000 years, with new physics letting us do crazy shit, or we might start hitting the limits of what is physically possible in less than a century. If the latter is true, then there is no reason to assume aliens would be some incomprehensible, Lovecraftian entities floating beyond the ken of mere mortals. I think there's ample room to hope for fantastic technological advancement, but it will never reach the point of incomprehensible magic.
>Anyhow, my mention of gods wasn't literal, it was just a way of getting you to understand the scale of informational difference better, but you seem to have heard that many times given your bitter response.
I'm not bitter about it, but it's part of a broader trend of occult-izing science and technology as something only a select group of wizards can understand. This mentality locks people out of the field because, if they initially have trouble understanding the concepts, they immediately assume they are not among the chosen few born to wield science powers. It encourages that masturbatory faith in science, since only science prophets can grasp and communicate the Truth to, as another poster said, our primitive monkey brains. In reality, science is a system that makes the universe readily comprehensible to everyone who puts in enough time and effort. It doesn't matter if it's a quasar at the edge of our light cone, life that evolved in the stratosphere of a gas giant, or a baseball bunted on a rainy day, we--you, me, anyone--can determine the behavior that's possible, predict the behavior that's likely, and extrapolate how these systems will develop on timescales of a few seconds to billions of years, with high accuracy.

Basically every chip has a dev board and many are in the same or better form factor then an arduino only reason people use the arduino is for the bloated libraries.(around same cost too) What happens when a beginner wants to program their arduino they type “how to make arduino do...” they will be given a library and they just import library and boom it’s done. You learn literally nothing. If you force them to bitflip they will learn. Technically if you are a super beginner and never programmed ever before in your life then technically you will learn some basic scripting skills.
