+ - NASA posts map showing height of forests worldwide->

Submitted by fadethepolice
fadethepolice (689344) writes "This map may be interesting to the slashdot crowd. I haven't had a chance to really study it yet, but the thinness of the amazon basin is rather striking when compared with the northwestern united states. The image was compiled from data from 3 satellites, NASA's ICESat, Terra, and Aqua."

Here is the link below: "struggling to maintain control in a confusing world" and "is not rooted." Worse, Blair was apparently, "not a natural leader, but more of a spiritual person, like a vicar."

+ - Orbitting Carbon Observatory crashes

Submitted by fadethepolice
fadethepolice (689344) writes "Nasa's latest satellite launch has been a failure. The Orbiting Climate Observatory has crashed in the ocean near antarctica. What do slashdot reader's think this will have on the Obama Administration's move to combine the infrastructure of the Defense department with Nasa's rocket programs? Nasa needs to stop having high profile crashes while their competitor's on the world stage slowly improve their reputations. http://uk.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUKTRE51N2QL20090224"

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
