SternisheFan points out that there is a great new panorama made from shots from the Curiosity Rover. "Sweep your gaze around Gale Crater on Mars, where NASA's Curiosity rover is currently exploring, with this 4-billion-pixel panorama stitched together from 295 images. ...The entire image stretches 90,000 by 45,000 pixels and uses pictures taken by the rover's two MastCams. The best way to enjoy it is to go into fullscreen mode and slowly soak up the scenery — from the distant high edges of the crater to the enormous and looming Mount Sharp, the rover's eventual destination."
are you so sure of that MIT has done it http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2007/wireless-0607.html
unixfan writes "Georg Greve, developer of Open Document Format and active FOSS developer, has received a knighthood in Germany for his work. From the article: 'Some weeks ago I received news that the embassy in Berne had unsuccessfully been trying to contact me under FSFE's old office address in Zurich. This was a bit odd and unexpected. So you can probably understand my surprise to be told by the embassy upon contacting them that on 18 December 2009 I had been awarded the Cross of Merit on ribbon (Verdienstkreuz am Bande) by the Federal Republic of Germany. As you might expect, my first reaction was one of disbelief. I was, in fact, rather shaken. You could also say shocked. Quick Wikipedia research revealed this to be part of the orders of knighthood, making this a Knight's Cross.'"
The Chinese stuff isn't an exact copy is a modernized version, a lot of work has gone into it. They didn't buy the rocket they built it them selves, thats something I'd say.
yes gravity wells that block radiation, that at least in the short term is difficult to block.

I strongly disagree, we have 7 computers among 4 people, 2 linux servers, 2 mac laptops, 3 linux laptops. not a single windows box in sight. at work i work exclusively on linux on my laptop and on our servers. I have absolutely nothing I need windows for.
I believe you can, there's even a book about it from a respected scientist. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1894959736?tag=jpaer-20&camp=14573&creative=327641&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=1894959736&adid=0DKZD44S4ZHFG34GQD5N& http://www.jpaerospace.com/
