How close would the spacecraft have to be to the comet in order to achieve orbit? At just 2.5 miles long, I don't suspect its gravitational pull would be very significant.

According to TFA, a tiny transceiver can be built into the plastic plug base of a USB cord. Of course, one has not been spotted in the wild, but it sounds theoretically possible.

I totally get it now. Thanks, folks.

I understand that the moon is tidally locked with the earth. What I don't understand is why the moon's movement is described as being "such that the same face is always facing the Earth." It appears to me as though the same area of the moon is being constantly lit by the sun. Doesn't that mean that that "face" is always facing the sun? I am not trying to be argumentative nor refute Cassini's Laws. I am just trying to understand the meaning of "face" in this particular context.
I thought the Earth's moon always presented the same face toward the sun. Am I totally misunderstanding what this means?

How do hearing impaired people address this problem? How about something visual?
But then again, the visually-impaired may become targets.
They certainly are. Or they can rent space on an existing infrastructure.
I think the idea seeks to solve the problem of falling revenue. Selling data collected by sensors could be a potential revenue stream.
that this is why Google purchased Gizmo?
According to NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco, who was interviewed on last night's McNeil Lehrer News Hour, the oil entering the Loop will have minimal environmental impact in other parts of the Gulf. She opines that "By the time the oil is in the loop current, it's likely to be very, very diluted. And, so, it's not likely to have a very significant impact. It sounds scarier than it is."
