I read a Slate review of Chinese Democracy. Guy got a hold of some less than honorable copies and said it was actually pretty good. I might actually look into it now.

Power Beaming Satellite: “One Lightbulb” Experiment

Space-based solar power has been mostly all-talk - now it’s time to energize the idea with some electrifying experiments!

And that’s the goal of the “One Lightbulb” project.

In December, the Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies at the U.S. Air Force Academy will begin the process of building two small satellites.

The bright idea here is demonstrate by doing - that is, power beam between low Earth orbit and the Earth to illuminate a single one-tenth of a watt LED lightbulb.

The project as now blueprinted involves the building of two satellite systems concurrently, one “heavy” and one “light.” This dual approach using different methods provides a measure of assurance that success can be attained given technical, legal, financial, or other challenges that might bog down one of the two satellite designs.

The WhiteKnightTwo — the mega mothership that will tote skyward the passenger-carrying SpaceShipTwo — is picking up speed - literally. The plane is being built by Scaled Composites in Mojave, California and is expected to be airborne in the next two to three weeks.

That’s the word today here at the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight in Las Cruces, New Mexico. One of the future passengers on SpaceShipTwo has received a recent briefing regarding the test program for WhiteKnightTwo from spaceline operator, Virgin Galactic.

Michael Blum said today that extensive ground testing of WhiteKnightTwo systems is underway at the Mojave Air and Space Port. Those tests have culminated in a recent high-speed taxi evaluation, Blum said.

Blum added that WhiteKnightTwo is some two to three weeks away from the craft taking to the skies for the first time - all in hush-hush status.

Huge Mountain Range Should Not Be There

An Antarctic mountain range that rivals the Alps in elevation will be probed this month by an expedition of scientists using airborne radar and other Information Age tools to virtually "peel away" more than 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) of ice covering the peaks.

One of the mysteries of the mountain range is that current evidence suggests that it "shouldn't be there" at all.

Drugs Found in Hair of Ancient Andean Mummies
Charles Q. Choi
for National Geographic News
October 22, 2008

The first hard evidence of psychoactive drug use in the ancient Andes has been discovered in mummies' hair, a new study says.

The finding confirms that predecessors of the Inca known as the Tiwanaku used mind-altering substances, and hints that the civilization relied on far-reaching trade networks to obtain the drugs.

Gnome terror returns to the streets of Argentina

A new sighting of South America’s ‘creepy gnome’ has caused panic among locals after a group of youngsters claimed a ‘midget monster’ ran towards them at night.

The teens – who recorded footage of the freaky being on their mobile phone – said they are now “too terrified” to go out at night.

Experts who examined the latest footage, taken in the town of Clodomira, province of Santiago del Estero, Argentina, last week, say it is ‘credible’.

But sceptics say the sidestepping ‘gnome’ could be a speedy child or even a small animal.

Last week’s footage was taken by Juan Carlos Roldan, his brother Javier and five friends, who were larking around by the water fountain in Clodomira.

Juan, who filmed the creature, referred to it as “something that looked like a dwarf”.

He said: “It was walking sideways and was wearing dark clothes. But it was impossible to see its face because its face was covered in shadows.”

One of the lads, who were aged 15-22, yesterday told Argentinean reporters: “We were messing about - singing and dancing - when we heard a loud rustling noise from behind us.

“This tiny thing started running down Avenue San Martin at us. It had a pointy head and dark clothes.

“It was a person of incredibly low stature. We filmed it then got scared and ran off.

“This little thing was barking like a dog - but running sideways on two legs. It headed off towards the football stadium.”

...

Photographic expert Aldegonda Alvarz, of Universidad Nacional de Santiago del Estero, yesterday said: “This video footage seems credible. We could be looking at another ‘petido orejudo’ - small being.

CB’s Nowotny Sees Global ‘Tri-Polar’ Currency System Evolving

Jonathan Tirone - Oct. 19

European Central Bank council member Ewald Nowotny said a “tri-polar” global currency system is developing between Asia, Europe and the U.S. and that he’s skeptical the U.S. dollar’s centrality can be revived.

“What I see is a system where we have more centers of gravity” Nowotny said today in an interview with Austrian state broadcaster ORF-TV. “I see for the future a tri-polar development, and I don’t think that there will be fixed exchange rates between these poles.”

The leaders of the U.S., France and the European Commission will ask other world leaders to join in a series of summits on the global financial crisis beginning in the U.S. soon after the Nov. 4 presidential election, President George W. Bush, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and European Commission President Jose Barroso said in a joint statement yesterday.

Playing With The Universe: Hubble & Fractals
This is going to be a bit of an "off post" here, but I wanted to point out some of the creative fun I had with playing with images from the Hubble telescope. Now you may remember in another post I had done this with images from an R.P.G. book, and this turned out to be a thought provoking venture! Let's see what the Universe has in store when we point our brains at fractals!

“I wonder whether fractal images are not touching the very structure of our brains. Is there a clue in the infinitely regressing character of such images that illuminates our perception of art? Could it be that a fractal image is of such extraordinary richness, that it is bound to resonate with our neuronal circuits and stimulate the pleasure I infer we all feel” (Professor Peter W. Atkins, Lincoln College, Oxford University, “Art as Science,” The Daily Telegraph, 1990).

'Eternal Sunshine' drug selectively erases memories

For those haunted by thoughts of an old flame or a tragic accident, the chance to selectively erase memories might be tempting.

Now scientists have moved a step closer to that possibility by wiping away a month-old memory in genetically engineered laboratory mice, while leaving other memories unchanged.

The researchers boosted levels of a protein called α-CaMKII involved in memory storage and retrieval, just as mice recalled the pain of receiving a light shock. This had the effect of dispelling the memory.

"I don't think it's possible to use our method in humans, whether it's now or in the future," says Joe Tsien, a neuroscientist at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. "But it does suggest that perhaps you can look into downstream targets [of α-CaMKII]. Maybe some pharmaceutical company is looking at that."

Humble sticky tape emits powerful X-rays

Peeling ordinary sticky tape can generate bursts of X-rays intense enough to produce an image of the bones in your fingers.

Seth Putterman and colleagues from the University of California, Los Angeles used a motor to unwind a roll of sticky tape and recorded the electromagnetic emissions. Ripping the tape from its roll at 3 centimetres per second generated X-ray bursts of 15 kiloelectronvolts – each lasting one-billionth of a second, and containing over a million photons.

Putterman admits he is not sure exactly what is going on. "My attitude is to marvel at the phenomenon – all we are doing is peeling tape, and nature sets up a process that gives you nanosecond X-ray bursts."
