More on the private spaceflight front:

Space.com: New Private Space Plane Passes 1st Flight Test

First SpaceX and now Dream Chaser, even though the latter hasn't gone into space yet. Definitely an exciting time for private space development.

responsiveness."

Could work, the plan is basicaly Red Mars redux. Of course you'd have to find peoples prepared for a one way trip.

Edit: lol at the 1st colonists in Red Mars leaving the Earth in 2026.

Guns using gunpower based bullets can fire in vacuum, because the gunpower itself carries its own oxygen for the combustion:

Cyber Spy Program Flame Compromises Key Microsoft Security System

"The cyber espionage super bug Flame compromised a key Microsoft security
system, the company has now revealed, prompting Microsoft to issue an
emergency patch to its millions of customers because of fears of what one expert
called potential "collateral damage" from the U.S. and Israel's cyber war against
Iran.

In an alert issued late Sunday, Microsoft told customers that the authors of
Flame -- a highly sophisticated surveillance computer virus discovered on
networks in the Middle East and Iran -- had figured out how to use Microsoft's
own security system to forge digital security certificates, which then allowed the
malicious code to spread undetected by anti-virus programs. Digital certificates
are in part designed to authenticate interactions online and help protect
computer networks from being accessed by unauthorized users."

There Is a Link between Genius and Insanity

Genius and insanity may actually go together, according to scientists who found that mental illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are often found in highly creative and intelligent people.

So... scientists have conclusively determined that something "may" be true, which has been a proverb for many years as it was? "There's a fine line between genius and insanity" and all that.

I wonder if those (Microsoft in this case) unduly affected by something like Flame, if it was admitted to be made by the US and Israeli Govt, could sue them for damage caused to their systems? It's not really all that different to other people that have exploited things like that and been caught.. why should a government get a free pass.

US spy satellite agency gives NASA 2 space telescopes

"The United States' spy satellite agency is giving NASA two spare space
telescopes free of charge, each potentially more powerful than the Hubble Space
Telescope, NASA officials announced June 4.

The two spy satellite telescopes were originally built to fly space-based
surveillance missions for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), but will be
repurposed by NASA for astronomical research instead. Their donation to NASA
was revealed in a surprise announcement."

^ Meanwhile they continue to cut NASA's budget (this has nothing to do with the economy, they have done so since the Apollo program ended), while the military has for scraps TWO hubbles they no longer need (no doubt they have something better, forget about them reading your newspaper from space, they probably are photographing the fingerprints you left in your glass of cola by now). The space otaku inside me is boiling in anger, while the starving enthusiast is happy NASA will no doubt give us extraordinary visuals and new insight on the universe around us.

They'll find a way. It is cheaper to launch something that already exists than to make something new...and than launch it into space.

With budget cuts, they were going to have to scrap some projects related to that field, but if they don't have to contract out to make a new telescope (or two), than all they need is to get it in orbit, since the fund to make these things probably came from the Defense budget.

Couldn't really see the sun here with really cloudy skies and no equipment to view the transit safely.

I've been following the Nasa live stream for an hour now, I think everyone should take a look since the next one would be in 2117, most people alive now wouldn't be able to see it again.
