THIS SOUNDS LIKE A REACTIONLESS DRIVE. NOW THAT I HAVE PROPERLY CATEGORIZED IT FOR YOU, YOU CAN JUST GO STRAIGHT ON TO BEING SKEPTICAL, SINCE EVERYONE KNOWS REACTIONLESS DRIVES ARE BALONY. THIS HAS BEEN A SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE SOCIETY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE STATUS QUO IN ENGINEERING. THANK YOU.

(We had to bribe Slashdot editors to let us write the above in all caps. They are total suckers for lower-case letters. It's a fetish of theirs, probably. Poor little letters. Cut to CmdrTaco doing a lower-case 'a' in the butt. Oh, ffs, will this filter ever let me through? rthwerg erg qergqegqerg qerg qegqegqreghqer gqer gq erg qer gqe gqergqergeqrgerg)

+ - Open source camera races to the moon->

nerdyH (702091) writes "The all-volunteer FREDNET science project vying for Google's Lunar X PRIZE competition will use a Linux camera from Elphel, the same company that supplied Google with imaging gear for its StreetView and Book Library projects. All of Elphel's cameras are completely open source, a good fit for collaborative scientific research projects like Team FREDNET, a FREDNET volunteer writes, because there's no chance for patent NDAs to obstruct innovation. The question is, will the Man in the Moon express privacy concerns, when his cat appears in Google MoonView?"

+ - Underground Water on Saturn's Moon?->

Submitted by

Iddo Genuth writes "Researchers working on NASA's Cassini mission to Saturn are theorizing that Saturn's moon Enceladus has pockets of liquid water located just underneath its surface. Several recent flybys of this moon (including one on October 9, 2008 that passed a mere 16 miles from its surface) focused on studying water vapor plumes and jets of icy particles shooting out of the moon. This phenomenon was discovered by Cassini in 2005, but the new closer photographs and spectral analysis of captured particles allowed researchers to compare their behavior to mathematical models. The observed behavior matches that which was predicted for situations when underground water is present."
