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

fadethepolice 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.

Submission + - Bill Gates disturbs graphologist

fadethepolice writes: I don't have any time to write a story but thought you guys might want to. 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." Unfortunately it was not blair, but bill gates' doodle. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=101727048

Submission + - Orbitting Carbon Observatory crashes

fadethepolice 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
