Womp Goes The Science

Was reading through one of my favorite cheezburger network sites, Dropping The Science, and found some interesting articles, videos, and pictures.

Have you ever thought we should be exploring space much more fervently than we are now? Well, good news, DARPA has a 100 Year Star Ship program in place. The agency recently awarded a $500,000 grant to a group tasked with all the sticky logistics of creating an interstellar spaceship. Link gathered from Dropping The Science:

Bonus musing:

In an attempt to stimulate some discussion: can computers become conscious? Do computers only do what they are told? Does a being need to have freewill to truly be said to have consciousness? Computers are told what to do by code, is not the human mind the same? told how to operate by genes.
