sts-125 mission is the next shuttle mission for nasa. atlantis is prepped for launch on october 10 to do some repair work on the hubble telescope.
my cousin (first and a half cousin?) sent me some links to photos of the shuttle taken by rod ostoski, a photographer who lives in florida. the set of photos at the link below shows a rare scene of both the atlantis and the endeavour on launch pads a and b in the same shot.
“knight rider” is back…again. the next episode was on hulu this week. interesting. i have a feeling the science behind the car is not all going to be explained away. nanotechnology turns normal car into transformer. i like science that is not real, yet plausible. i’m still waiting to be plaused.
back in the day, techtv was the best! “the screensavers” totally ruled the show. after comcast purchased techtv from paul allen, the coolness factor began to decay. now, “attack of the show” on g4 is what comcast turned “the screensavers” into. blah!

i think they need to be broken up like the phone company was many years ago. if anything, maybe some regulation of the internet/cable companies would be in order. oh, and definitely some net neutrality.
i wonder if one day we’ll replace the term “internet” with “google”? google is already a verb to indicate search. what if it turns out they become the internet?
they have launched, unlaunched, and will shortly relaunch their own browser which is said to make surfing better with their multiple process tabbed-design app named chrome. (press conference today at 2:00p to maybe give it back to us. synchronize your watches.)
i’m actually eager to see this. as much as i love firefox, i wonder if this tool will improve loading up as many sites in multiple tabs as i end up having.
