    The culmination of 50 years of planetary exploration by NASA. Take a second to think about how crazy this seemingly ordinary image is. A probe that was launched in 2006 traveled 31.90 AU (AU = Astronomical Unit | 149.6 million Kilometers or 93 million Miles) (2966.7 MILLION MILES AWAY!). It takes light 4 hours to travel that distance. It arrives at its target without any problems, executes its actions according to a plan set it motion 9 years ago, and takes a picture. We are seeing a planet so far away that light (the fastest thing in the known universe) takes 4 hours to reach, captured in a still photo. Then it beamed that information, 0's and 1's all the way back to earth. . . Just insane to me the level of accomplishment this represents.

    Natural selection algorithm applied to computer chip creation

    A fantastic read about a scientist in England who created an evolvable chip to discern between two sounds. The results are pretty amazing.

    This is ALL KINDS OF BUGGY! If that resolved in ANY other order it wouldn't have mattered. Was that intentional or the luckiest find of all time?

    Thanks for responding, I guess my question is broader in scope. Are creating this project for personal pleasure? Is there a grander idea behind all of this you can share? I understand your very early into the creation project of Panthology, but what is your end vision / goal of Panthology? Are you hoping to do some literary works around this world? A setting for a game or series you'd like to create etc.

    Do you have any more information on your Panthology project? The images look great! Are they from multiple artists?

    United flights resume after computer problem

    "FAA says United flights were grounded by a problem with the airlines' computer system." Looks like the link from the reservation to the FAA system was down causing a mandatory grounding. 4900 flights worldwide were affected.

    I think we're going to be disappointed by the first few fights (if there's more than one). In my head I'm ready to see some Gundam Wing in real life! but in reality we'll see some slow, first to fall over is donefore mech fights. When bipedal motion is better developed I think we'll see some crazy stuff but I imagine that's years away.

    I want to believe its going to be battle bots on a massive (size wise) scale, but I doubt it will be anything close.

    This is a scrape of an email that was sent out by Dave from the Mozilla team. It asks a lot of questions but doesn't give any answers.

    The game itself is going to have a tremendous amount of subtle depth. Planets will be colored based off of the fake elements that make up the no man skys periodic table. If a planets red, you'll know that it at least contains portions of element X.. Their will be a natural progression to the game as you unlock the ability to visit planets further and more hostile to you. Eventually players will reach the center of the galaxy where they will be given unannounced abilities that might encourage players to keep playing. (My guess is something to do with the sentinels or helping along other players).

    First and foremost this game is about exploration of galaxies. They were primarily focused on the sense of wonder that arises from visiting a brand new planet with unknown lifeforms. Because everything is procedural generated, literally every planet will be unique with strange creatures to observe or even name (if your the first!)

    Do you have any links to the project you mentioned for deorbiting space debris from earth? The system that launched to grab the debris in orbit would only need to slow the object down enough to lower its apoapsis enough to get caught by earth. Ideally the system would be able to maintain its orbit while deorbiting multiple objects before running out of delta v and returning itself.

    I like how crowded the sea feels in this painting. Also kudos to the poster for sourcing the image and giving credit where due! A recent snap outlines this process found here

    I think for sometime more this will still be a hot topic :( It's being picked up by CNN money and other large news sites as current events and deserves representation here. I'm focusing on the quality of conversation here, even about a competing website, rather than the reason for the conversation to garner more appreciation for this site, its community, and its setup.

    The copy of windows is usable as many times as you want on that ONE device. All major laptop manufacturers give you the setup disk within a hidden partition on the device. Your key is hidden in the registry and can be extracted using free software or, like mentioned before, usually printed on the outside of the laptop. It is your right as the owner of the OS license (by purchasing the laptop provided by the manufacturer) to install it as many times as you wish on that device. Eventually, with enough activations on file, Windows will prompt you to call a number to verify you are doing it for valid reasons, but you will still be able to use it again if you wish.

    You've been using the community preview version. I wonder if they can upgrade it from within 10 or if you'll have to do a full re-install like they did for 7 and vista.
