  • Nuclear waste, couldn't we just dump it in a volcano?

  • Wrong address court summons UK?

    A member of my family was in court recently for none payment of a traffic fine. They had my address on the insurance and driving licence, even though they live at a different address. Now they have said in court that they never received the summons and I interfered with their post.

    Is this a reasonable defence? Or should they have told the DVLA and their insurer about the new address? Could they get me into trouble if I failed to pass on the mail?

  • Artist on our record label is in breach of contract? How to proceed?

    My friends and I have setup a small independent record label and have so far released two singles with different bands. We paid for a third band to record an album but when we listened to the tapes, it was a load of rubbish.

    We suggested a compromise, said if they recorded two of the tracks again for free, we would be happy to release a single and allow them to use the rest of the material any way they wanted.

    They have refused and are planning to release a single with their own money. Does the label have any ownership of the recordings, seeing as we paid for them? Can we insist they buy us out before they release anything?

    We haven't signed a contract or taken out copyright on the recordings, but surely we have some say in how the tapes get used as we have receipts?

  • Manned mission to Mars, would this work?

    Two of the obstacles that keep getting mentioned in getting people to mars are the radiation and the amount of fuel required.

    There is a lot of radiation in interplanetary space, so the journey should be short. To get there faster with chemical rockets would mean a massive amount of fuel, making the spacecraft impossibly heavy.

    Could a solution be to use an ion drive to pick up speed while the craft is still in earth orbit, within the magnetosphere, then break orbit and do the transit in weeks rather than months, using chemical rockets when it gets to mars, or is there some physical law I'm missing? Would it take too much fuel to slow down?

  • Will the police move a car if it has no insurance?

    I threw out a family member from my house last year. We are having a family feud and now they've blocked my driveway and they're refusing to move it.

    I think the car is still registered to this address, so is the insurance. I'm pretty sure this means the details on the insurance are fraudulent, therefore invalid. Will the police get involved, even though the car isn't on a public highway?

    They have been charged with driving offences recently, so they may have given a false address in court too.
