Their proposal is similar to what American scientists did with their NEAR spacecraft, which hadn't been designed to land on an asteroid but was successfully eased onto the surface of Eros, where it operated for a very short time.
Don't know about the second pic.
The four Galilean moons are interesting from an evolutionary POV. Io - Molten sulphur on the surface, purple volcanoes all over it. Europa - Deep water ocean, thin crust, very active plate tectonics. Ganymede - Europa with a deep dish crust and cooler core. Callisto - A rock.
Yes, I imagine the birds will have quite different types of beaks.
The real problem is that people *want* to see creative, aesthetically pleasing and different designs when browsing the web.
Speak for yourself. When I browse the web I want different types of information.
... all of the many small bridges in the region are specifically designed to be washed away easily. It's simply cheaper to build them new ones after every serious flood.
The Icelandic director of transport states in this mornings paper that "bridges are expensive". Just rebuilding two particular bridges that are candidates for being washed away would cost roughly 25 million USD. In addition there's the disruption and inconvenience until some rudimentary bridges have been put in place.
The plan is therefore to try to save the bridges. If necessary, heavy machinery will be used to dig the roads apart the allow the flood to go that way. Rebuilding roads is a comparatively quick and painless process.
Roughly 23 light minutes away.

All in all, Java isn't very enterprise friendly for us. We have some systems that rely on applets and browser plugins working correctly, there is no way around that. As far as I see it, for security reasons we would like to block applets by default, but we would also like to be able to white-list a specific set of servers from which applets are accepted. Any solution for this? We mostly use IE.
