    Rosette Nebula


    what's at the edge of the universe? If matter, energy and time are non existent beyond the boundary, is the boundary just a limitless blackhole? If so, will it be constricted to a point or will it be a limitless locus of points?

    I think the Earth has only 500million years until life becomes unsustainable. Not sure but I think its the combination of the sun slowly getting bigger and the moon moving moving away towards Venus.

    Northern lights from space - pretty cool, if you like that kind of thing.

    But, I find this even more exciting -

    Quote
    (CNN) -- Russian scientists briefly pierced the two-mile-thick veil over a freshwater lake hidden beneath Antarctica's ice sheet for millions of years, polar researchers announced Wednesday.

    Scientists hope samples of Lake Vostok, a body the size of Lake Ontario, will yield signs of previously undiscovered life and new clues about the history of the planet. The lake is believed to have been covered by ice for up to 30 million years.

    We Are So Close to Inventing a Real-Life Mr. Fusion
    Some would argue that the biggest obstacle robotics currently faces isn't the Uncanny Valley or suppressing the urge to destroy all humans—it's keeping their batteries charged. The newest version of the EcoBot may have the answer—it eats poop. Our poop.

    Powering robots is pretty straightforward—either have a whole bunch of spare AA's on hand or train it to plug into a wall socket like a Roomba. But if you're taking your robot on a trip to say, the ISS, neither of these options proves tenable. But what if the robot could power itself from fecal matter generated by the station's crew? Well, it could run indefinitely.

    Battery turns sea water into fresh water, no magic necessary
    As the world's population continues to grow, fresh water is becoming one of the most valuable (and contested) resources on the planet. Whether it's for drinking, agriculture, or keeping our armpits clean, we need more of it, and we now may be able to make that happen with little more than a fancy battery.
