In the 1987 supernova event neutrinos arrived before photons, not because they are faster but because photons take a longer time traversing the core of the star.

The story of the Orion project is narrated by Freeman J.Dyson in his book "Disturbing the universe", which speaks also of space travel and colonies into space. I enjoyed reading it.

Fast Radio Burst 121102 , with a power of 500 million Suns emitted in a millisecond, has been pinpointed in the Auriga constellation at two and a half billion light years by three radiotelescopes, Arecibo, the Socorro Very Large Array and a European network.The FRBs were first found in Parkes records but they are not repeating, so it is difficult to pinpoint them. 20 of them are known but only FRB 121102 is repeating. The origin of their power is a mystery. The emitting source is a dwarf galaxy.

Don't think you would want to have the gamma rays from that. While the magnetosphere is pretty good at holding back the sun, you will need a mile of rock to hold back a supernova at that distance.

Then the people working at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso have a good chance to survive. They are both male and female, so they might rebuild mankind.

The same limits in Italy, but if you respect the limits you'll get hit by the TIR trucks which start flashing lights if you don't go fast enough in their lane, the rightmost lane. I traveled about eighty times the autobahn from Milano to Trieste and back when I was working in Trieste and came back every fortnight to near Milano to meet my sons and watch my home in Rodano.

I am using VirtualBox in the CERN projects, now grouped in LHC@home. I install Virtual Box on my SuSE Linux hosts by getting the generic version for all Linux distros, then compiling the kernel modules using gcc, make and the Linux kernel source code of my distro. Otherwise go to Oracle Virtual Box and download the version compiled for your distro, 32 or 64 bit, and the Extension pack. Once you start Virtual Box you start a Virtual Machine by the New header and follow the instructions. Of course you must provide it with sufficient disk space and RAM. I used to have a Solaris 11 Virtual Machine on a 64-bit Linux host, but Solaris has no BOINC clients and manager so I canceled it.

I have both a 1050 Ti on a Windows 10 host and a 750 OC on a Linux box, vintage 2008. The 1050 is much faster but its fan is making a lot of noise, while the 750 is silent. The PSU of the Windows host gives 300 W only, while the PSU of the Linux gives 400 W. No additional connectors are used. Now I have installed the Linux Cuda application on the Linux box and I am curious to see what it can do.
