  •’s image of the day: the astronomer’s dilemma…when you look so far back in time that the stars haven’t formed yet, what do you look for?
  • Five designer babies created for stem cells. Make mine a Gucci thanks.

  • Obesity and high-blood pressure are becoming endemic.
  • Ancient map confirmed by satellite images.
  • NASA must transform to put men on Mars. I’m sure they meant to say humans. Or perhaps men are to Mars, women are to Venus?
  • A day in the life of the Spirit rover. What do they tell the little fella when he asks when he’s coming home?
  • Tuna and sharks a prime example of convergent evolution. If you believe in that sort of freaky stuff, personally I’ll take my chances with God creating the Earth a few thousand years ago (n.b. before starting those emails…that was a joke).

  • Uber-physicist Brian Greene tell you all about the Fabric of the Cosmos.

There are not enough hours in the day to read everything cool out there…
  • Giant ‘masks’ suggest ancient Maya flourished.

  • Houses of Pharaonic gold miners found near Red Sea.
  • African lion roaming central Ohio? See also links in Heck’s blog and Sonicreducer’s blog. Thanks guys.
  • Giant squid isn’t picky, and will mate blind, not caring if other squid is male or female. So bit like humans and nightclub closing time then.
  • Builder survives nail gun incident. Trust me, check this one out…new meaning to ‘a pain in the neck’.

Quote of the Day:

Spirits and conjurations…gods, spheres, planes and many other things which may or may not exist. It is immaterial whether they exist or not. By doing certain things, certain results follow.
