Yup, space is still hard
It doesn't matter how many rockets are being made, the chance of failure is never zero.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is in damage control mode after a launch of its Epsilon rocket was terminated with a self-destruct command on Wednesday. Epsilon is Japan’s small, cheap, launch platform. The solid-fuel powered craft can carry payloads totalling 590kg into orbit. It's designed for low-cost …
"Japan's minister of education, culture, sports, science and technology, apologized on behalf of JAXA for not meeting the expectations of the Japanese people. The Ministry he leads has launched a task force to determine the cause of the failure."
I can't help wondering if someone lower down the chain was found to be responsible, will they be made to fall on their sword, so to speak?
PSA : toothpaste (usually) is stuffed full of fluoride, and when in contact with teeth, it donates fluoride to the enamel - a process known as re-mineralization, because the opposite, de-minerialization - is what happens all the time when you eat food, where acids attack the enamel.
Brush you teeth, then leave it on your teeth for at least 30 minutes. Prolly still doing some good up to the hour mark, but 30 minutes will be fine.
I would if they would stop making every single smegging toothpaste so minty it makes me want to gag. I want that shit out of my mouth asap. And because of the addition of those useless foaming agents it usually also means having to rinse like 10 times because it just keeps sticking around.
If whatever is in your mouth is already to the point of rotting (and being actually bad for you) you might want to consider brushing your teeth more often. Once a day at bare minimum, preferably twice. Even then, if it's sticking around in your mouth your probably swallowing small bits of it throughout the day anyway, I can't imagine swallowing a bit more of it at the same time is going to make much of a health impact if it had any.
And yes, toothpaste is only foamy because of foaming agents and it absolutely doesn't need any.
