Wandering Around London's Science Museum with Some Niners

Sign in to queue

Description

While in London not too long ago I met up with some friendly neighborhood Niners to check out London's awesome Science Museum. Two of the usual suspects, blowdart and sabot are on the scene and somebody you've never met before (at least in video context).

Some interesting trivia here: We learn that Dave Oliver's (Sabot) mother was a software developer back in the day when there was more gender parity in the field. Very cool! We also look at some brains...

Enjoy!

    The London science museum is cool.

    And if memory serves me correctly that Cray was the last Cray1 in use anywhere in the world, wasn't it?

    At the Atomic Weapons Establisment.

    I sleep safely in my bed know that the UK's atomic weapons have the very best of technology to keep them going correctly Tongue Out

    The brilliants of making a machine that does polynomial functions is fascinating! I can’t begin to imagine how one goes about making something like that. Even when I see it it’s hard to believe. I admittedly paused just to get a closer look at that human brain.

    How do you "do" a polynomial function? Do you evaluate it's zeros, or evaluate it numerically at a point, or what?
