The Rosetta ESA spacecraft is going to crash on its comet, after putting its lander Philae on it, which ended in a position such not to receive much sunshine, so its transmissions ended soon. Philae was recently detected by ESA on the comet.

Mars should be sterile due to it's temperature and bombardment with high energy radiation.

Yes, but is has cavities that are shielded and may have higher temperatures. I know that caves in the Carso (Karst) region above Trieste have the same temperature all year long.

Da un articolo su "Nature" pare ci vorranno anni di testing, dati i problemi di un telescopio con 2225 attuatori per modificarne la geometria, di cui 150 sono risultati difettosi. Pare che i 300 metri interni sono un paraboloide, e non uno specchio sferico.

Yesterday I had a major Windows 10 update, which changed my Windows from 1511 to 1607. I had to reinstall VirtualBox on it, so I updated it to the latest release but my nVidia driver for the Geforce GTX 750 OC remained unchanged. I had updated it using Geforce Experience to 372.90 and it remained unchanged.

I have a Windows 10 Home edition updated from 8 and 8.1 on a HP PC. When I installed on it a Geforce GTX 750 OC to run both SETI@home and Einstein@home GPU tasks, I installed a nVidia driver using Geforce Experience and I regularly update it. MS never overwrote my driver in its updates.

Probably they have realized that they still have something to learn, after the Jade Rabbit failure on the Moon and the Tiangong-1 out of control. China is pushing ahead in science and spending 2% of its GNP. I know that Roberto Battiston, the head of the Italian Space Agency, is in contact with the China Academy of Science.

From what I saw in images, the "source feed cabin" is rather small and I doubt it could contain the SETI receivers. Also, FAST focuses to a point and not to a line like Arecibo. I read that the first 300 meters are really parabolic, not spherical.

All GPU tasks on the Linux box with its HD 7770 using OpenCl 1.2 are guppies. I have downloaded GPU tasks on my Windows 10 PC with Geforce GTX 750 using Cuda 50 and they are Arecibo tasks.

Sul Monte Mufara nelle Madonie in Sicilia e' stato inaugurato un telescpio ottico di 1 metro di diametro alla quota di 1865 metri slm. Supera quindi la quota di quello di Cima Ekar sull'Altipiano di Asiago, alla cui inaugurazione ho partecipato, che pero' ha uno specchio piu' grande 1 metro e 65 cm se non ricordo male. Ma il nuovo telescopio, battezzato Gal Hassin dal nome arabo della localita' Isello in cui sorge, e' del tipo a largo campo (sette gradi quadrati) per cui e' adatto alla ricerca di asteroidi e Near Earth Objects ed e' robotizzato, per cui puo' essere comandato a distanza. Ho letto la notizia sul Corriere della Sera.

Near the village of Isnello, Sicily, a new telescope has been inaugurated on the summit of Monte Mufara at 1865 meter height, named Gal Hassin. It is not a big telescope, one meter diameter mirror, but has wide field capability (seven square degrees) and will be used also to track Near Earth Objects. The site also holds a Planetarium with several refracting telescopes and a small 2.3 meters radio telescope. It will be used also for educational purposes. Go Sicily!

We cannot stop quakes or volcano eruptions. All we can do is to minimize effects.
Same for asteroid damages.

In 1992 I connected my BULL/MIPS RISC computer to the Gopher server at Minnesota University. It had a line of command client. no GUI. The most visited directory was "Top models" on the Pisa university server.

I am a Windows novice, since I mostly use Linux. I bought a PC from HP with Windows 8.1, then updated to Windows 10 1511. Since then I get regular updates. But this Bulletin speaks of Windows 10 1607. Which is the difference? Maybe some Windows user can instruct me. I mostly run CERN programs on it with Virtual Box but also SETI@home and Einstein@home GPU tasks on its Geforce GTX 750 board.

I know TCP/IP was developed in DARPA. But WWW is the work of Tim Berners-Lee at CERN.
