DailyDirt: Staring Off Into Space

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Telescopes have taught us a lot about the universe around us. As we collect more data from other stars and satellites, we might figure out the mysteries of Dark Matter and the probability of other lifeforms existing. Here are just a few cool telescope projects out there. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    The problem probably is math here any amount of data can be reduced to an exponential expression, that data could be reduced dramatically at the cost of heavy calculations on the ground to expand that number to its useful form, the question is how much a computer can process today?

    You missed the surprise NASA announcement yesterday that we are not going to be killed by the comet Elenin as it passes Earth by in October!

    Looks like a non-story... since the Earth is SAFE from this comet. :)
