      Duh, it’s NASA, they can fly to the Moon or Mars

            Some really scientifically based response by ChatGPT

            Sending 1MB of data to Mars depends on the distance between Earth and Mars and the data transfer rate, which varies widely. When Earth and Mars are closest, about 54.6 million kilometers apart, using NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN) as a reference, with rates up to 250 kbps under optimal conditions, it would take approximately 32 seconds to send 1MB. However, this is an ideal scenario, and actual times could be longer due to various factors like signal processing and interplanetary communication delays.

              That’s not latency though.

              The average ping, or round-trip communication delay, between Earth and Mars varies depending on their relative positions in their orbits. On average, it ranges from about 4 to 24 minutes, due to the vast distance between the two planets. This latency presents significant challenges for real-time communication and coordination between Earth and Mars missions.

    I’d be willing to bet this isn’t real.

    I’ve been to lots of scientific talks and the idea of someone trying to call put the person talking is kind of ridulous and never happens. You would have to an asshole of the highest calibre to do that. And the fact he mentions a specific paper/person and that just happened to be tbe person speaking and the idea that the speakers name wasn’t listed is just so incredibly unlikely I can’t ever imagine that happening.

    This just seems like the kind of thing people fantasing happening, so they can smugly correct them.

      To be fair, she didn’t say she was giving a talk, guess it could have been a side conversation. It would seem more likely in a little side conversation.

      However, at least when it happened to me, the other person remembered the paper but not the author, so it seems weird to refer to the paper by author. Also it feels weird even if he did remember to throw in the “et al”. It’s extra weird for her to declare that she is “McCarty et al”, since she is saying she is “and others”. It feels like a detail thrown in to make the exchange sound more “sciencey”, when it doesn’t make sense.

      Since I had it happen to me, I’m sure it’s happened to other paper writers, but this exchange doesn’t sound like a realistic way for it to go down. So it’s at least massaged for dramatic effect.

      Seems like the kind of thing that would have been an intentional poke at being funny if it actually came up until Karen tries to make a thing of it because it goes straight to her head.

    I mean, she’s McCarty…

    But I feel like this reploat has been around for a decade by now, and it’s always bothered me.

    Just sounds like a George Costanaza thing where she thought of this comeback but never in the moment

      the hair thing could be drama for the tweet but everything else is not the first time nor the last time that happened, there are others stories like that

        I don’t doubt the situation happened, it is common.

        But her reaction rarely is, but it’s always the rebuke you think of “in the elevator” afterwards.

        That’s the less believable part, that she thought of it and used it in the moment. Quick on your feet thinking is like the opposite skillset of doing hard scientific research

            exactly, if someone said that to me i could totally answer with a “but, i’m (my name)?” with a very confused look and in a less cool way, it’s not that clever

          What’s there to be quick about? Someone criticizes you comparing to your work, you tell them you’re the author…

      Don’t you understand? It’s not about him. To have a line as perfect as ‘jerk store’ and to never use it. I, I couldn’t live with myself.

    White guys in this thread: Hey now, this racism business is a two way street.

    Everyone else: Your race is bad so we can be racist!

    This once again shows how important it is to acknowledge ones own biases and to account for them.

      She’s just pointing out that because of his race, the man she was taking to was in a place of social privilege and he should be more mindful of this when talking to under-represented groups in his field, such as women and POC.

      Reminding him that his race grants him a level of authority, encourages him not to approach every conversation with the assumption that he is the smartest in the room.

      Honestly, I didn’t think it through. I saw this on Lemmy and thought “It looks like !confidently_incorrect@lemmy.world material and I haven’t seen content from it for some times.” So I crossposted it.
