+ - German radar satellite lifts off tonight->

Submitted by 2Y9D57
2Y9D57 (988210) writes "Germany's new TanDEM-X radar satellite is scheduled to lift off from Baikonur Cosmodrome at 04:15 Berlin time on 21 June, that's 10:14 pm Eastern today (20 June). Flying in close formation with its twin satellite, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X will generate the the most consistent and highest-resolution (12 meter / 40 foot pixel pitch) digital elevation map of the Earth ever, taking three years to image all 150 million square kilometers / 58 million square miles and generating more than 350 TB of raw data in the process.

+ - Demonoid back online

Submitted by 2Y9D57
2Y9D57 (988210) writes "As of Sunday 30th September, the Demonoid bittorrent tracker is back online — outage caused by need to filter Canadian traffic following threats from lawyer representing the CRIA. Somewhat ironic — Demonoid stays in Canada, but Canadians can't use it. Nice work, CRIA."

There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence. -- Jeremy S. Anderson
