Decades-Old Soviet Reflector Spotted On the Moon 147

cremeglace writes "No one had seen a laser reflector that Soviet scientists had left on the moon almost 40 years ago, despite years of searching. Turns out searchers had been looking kilometers in the wrong direction. On 22 April, a team of physicists finally saw an incredibly faint flash from the reflector, which was ferried across the lunar surface by the Lunokhod 1 rover. The find comes thanks to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which last month imaged a large area where the rover was reported to have been left. Then the researchers, led by Tom Murphy of the University of California, San Diego, could search one football-field-size area at a time until they got a reflection."

You forgot to mention that if you want to access the drive *outside* of your lan, its either a yearly or monthly rate of like 20 or 30 dollars a month. And you have to use their service to access the configuration of the device.

Yeah I was looking at borderlands and all their dlc, to buy it all was like 80 or 90 bucks I just laughed at that, killingfloor has some dlc too that's pretty reasonable priced at $1.99 each but I still haven't bought it because why should I have to pay *more* money so I can have a couple more character models (I think the game has like 4 or 5 base and each dlc pack adds like 4), I don't think you can even use a model you made yourself, it was a good price back in december when it was like 10 bucks, but I'm not sure if it's worth much more than that.
