Former NASA Astronaut Explains How Food Is Different in Space | WIRED

What's different about food in space? Former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino breaks down all the differences between eating on Earth and eating in space. Is astronaut ice cream REALLY a thing? Who decides what food is brought to space? Can you eat burgers in space? Why do astronauts use tortillas instead of bread?

Mike Massimino is a former NASA astronaut, senior advisor for space programs at the Intrepid Museum, and professor at Columbia University.

Thank the gods for artificial gravity. I think in eleventh century of the Third Imperium, only uplifted dolphins deal with zero-G food issues. :)

1. NordVPN for all your security needs, whether to obfuscate your online activities from Big Brother, the Cylons, or your better half.

2. They all look like bugs.

3. Except for the Helicarrier; it's probably cheaper to build it as a spaceship than an aircraft.

I guess most people know, but just in case it saves someone some grief: a VPN isn't really going to do much if they're in your house. It doesn't hide browser history from someone with physical access to your device.

After the fact, only if you have a record or leave traces.

Chrome promises there's no record, and solid state should make recovery impossible.

If spy software is pre-installed ...

Much depends on the technical ability of the spouse, and the nature of the relationship, but if they have physical access to the machine, your IT security system requires physical access protection. e.g. "Hardware Keyloggers" are a thing.

I'm not going to go into securing the home environment iself as it's not directly related to IT.

I assume you're using disk encryption and not relying on the random overwriting the SSD does (microsoft's bitlocker on windows, apple's filevault on apple)? Everyone knows from the news even the FBI have trouble getting data out of Apple devices but it does require that you turn on all the security features. Bitlocker _probably_ works.

Once it's in the Cloud, it's probably there for eternity, regardless how encrypted it is, so anything you want to remain relatively secure, has to be stored locally; science fiction writers were pretty prescient, when they mentioned self perpetuating viruses corrupting databases to change or eradicate specific information.

And if you have anything to really hide, go the whole hog and get a burner phone that's registered under and paid for by a shell company; at some point, the essential hardware can be fitted onto an sd card, which can be slipped into your regular phone and can be walled off.

Just to ensure there is no confusion, FileVault and Bitlocker are not cloud services.

FileVault gives you the option of using an Apple account for the encryption keys, but that's an option that's presented to the user in way that's very hard to misunderstand.

To be honest, if you're using Windows or Apple, you already trust one of either Microsoft or Apple implicity - or you'd be on Linux if trust was important.

World's richest man, presumable with a security department staffed with the best retired intelligence agents and whitehat hackers money can buy, who would probably vet any communications device he uses and those of who he contacts with confidential information.

His dick pics are now in the wild, though luckily haven't gone viral.

The best security controls are the simplest ones, and the most advanced can’t fix stupidity.

NSA and GCHQ want a master key for encryption. How long before that leaks and everything breaks?

Turns Out, Radiation on Mars Will Dramatically Change Our Brains and Behavior

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
