DailyDirt: Satellites Measure All Sorts Of Stuff...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are plenty of discoveries that are impossible (or just a lot harder) to do without properly-equipped satellites orbiting over our heads. Good thing satellites are getting cheaper and more reliable to send up. (But too bad there's so much space junk above us.) Here are just a few cool satellite articles for your amusement. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    I can accept a lighbulb in space, but only if it is a new generation low wattage bulb and "green" certified.

    How many astronauts will it take to change this light-bulb?

    Too bad.. b/c if this project actually gets off the ground, it'll probably be a good ol' tungsten light bulb.

    2 theories:

    1) HAARP - the atmospheric heater
    2) the 'expando Earth' theory.
