I’m not spreading any rumours about Philadelphia experiments and yowies today, just the news:
- Apparently the secrets of the Giza Pyramids were revealed at a talk given by Dr Zahi Hawass — but this article fails to mention them. Champagne journalism, it really is.

- Investigating the complicated chemistry of the fireball that ensued after the asteroid impact that may have killed off the dinosaurs.
- Studying the sun by exploring ancient observatories. I’m late with this news about Sun-Earth Day because I live by the moon. Coincidentally, the origin of the moon still puzzles scientists, and the moon’s features will puzzle the next group of people to go there even more.
- Mars is also puzzling scientists, but is the electric discharge hypothesis the one theory to rule them all? Thunderbolts of the Gods, by David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill. Awe-inspiring film of Thunderbolts can be viewed here (Quicktime needed).

- Post-soviet sects continue to attract minds and ruples.
Thanks Kat and Max.
