That Kurzweil website has some of the coolest science articles. Definitely a website that should be bookmarked.

Agreed! Which is why I find both science and the history of religion fascinating.

NASA's biggest rover is set to land on Mars in August.

Mars Rover Landing Set For August 5, NASA's 'Curiosity' Team Says


Thought I'd add a picture from one of Mars rover that was just taken recently.

These pictures that have come out of Mars are mind blowing.

No, no you don't.


That would be a red super giant star. Now, if you masquerade as the Human Torch, I'll allow this. :FIREdevil

I'm pretty sure that the nature of visuals should imply that stars dont like to be judged by their mass. VY Canis Majoris picks fights on Mu Cephai all day.

Re: All things Science related. λν = c

Popular Science:

Soldiers scanning the battlefield for threats may soon get a new tool: a brain-scanning set of binoculars that can pick up on a soldierís unconscious recognition of a potential threat and bring it to his conscious attention. Itís just one of many ways DARPA and other military research groups are looking to have soldiers mind-meld with their machines and materiel, and it demonstrates how remarkably close we are to deploying mind-control on the battlefield.

Ah, technology! What could possibly go wrong?

Something new we both learned today and good question by the way.


Wolf 359 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Wolf 359 first came to the attention of astronomers because of the relatively high rate of transverse motion against the background, known as the proper motion. A high rate of proper motion can indicate that a star is located nearby, as more distant stars must move at higher velocities in order to achieve the same rate of angular travel across the celestial sphere. The proper motion of Wolf 359 was first measured in 1917 by German astronomer Max Wolf, with the aid of astrophotography. In 1919 he published a catalog of over one thousand stars with high proper motions, including this one, that are still identified by his name.[14] He listed this star as entry number 359, and the star has since been referred to as Wolf 359 in reference to Max Wolf's catalogue.[15]
TL|DR: Named after Max Wolf's entry of this star into his catalogue. (#359)
