Quake

+ - Quakelive beta test begins.->

DarkProphet writes "I was pleasantly surprised today to find that I have been selected to participate in id Software's beta test of Quake Live. For those living under a rock, Quake Live is essentially Quake3 Arena played inside your browser. Eurogamer does a good job of summarizing the concept. I can attest that it does indeed load quickly and has on-par or better graphics than Quake3 Arena, and it runs nice and fast. Its not a carbon copy of Q3A though, it includes a tutorial as well as new maps, player models, and more."

+ - Molecular Basis of Life Found on Extrasolar Planet->

DarkProphet writes "Scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope have for the first time found the telltale signature of methane, an organic molecule, in the atmosphere of a planet outside our solar system.

Methane is one of the chemicals of life, an organic compound in the class of molecules containing carbon. However, no life is likely to exist on the large, gaseous planet known as HD 189733b. Its daily temperatures can reach 1,340 degrees Fahrenheit."
