It is only a problem of pattern recognition. See K.S.Fu "Statistical pattern recognition".

I have a HP laptop running SETI@home, Einstein@hom and vLHC@home 24/7. The only thing I did was to upgrade its RAM to 8 GB and to change its hard disk to a 120 GB SSD from OCZ.

I believe spots are from a heat source below them. It looks like a hot reactor vessel on the left and some heat exchanger pipes on the right. Science fiction?

A final correction has been made the New Horizons path to Pluto. It takes 9 hours to send a command to the spacecraft, so commnds must be sent in advance and stored in the computers to be executed at an exact moment.
Meanwhile the SOFIA 2.5 meters IR telescope aboard a 747SP modified jetliner has observed an occultation of a star by Pluto on June 29, which is important for the study of the Pluto atmosphere, which includes methane.

Recently the vLHC@home project reached 2 trillion events (not tasks) done and its chief, dr. Ben Segal thanked us volunteers for it. CERN believes in the distributed volunteer computing paradigm and has other projects running and coming.

Sorry, events instead of jobs. An event is a proton-proton collision, which may or may not produce other particles. such as the Higgs boson.

There is a register in Italy called "registro delle opposizioni" where you can record your telephone number in order not to be called by marketeers. But this does not apply to mobile phones.

I've suggested a kind of natural nuclear fission reaction, like that found in Oklo, Gabon, 1972. Wait and see.

Both Ceres and Pluto belong to the primitive part of the Planetary System. We might be in for some surprise.

Bright spots are seen on Ceres by the Dawn spacecraft. We shall be seeing them from a lower altitude soon as Dawn lowers its orbit.

My money goes to utilities, electricity for my computers, telephone line + ADSL, gas for heating in winter. Then condominium expenses, money for a new grasscutter, a paring down my trees every 4 year, etc.

In my estimation we won't be downloading the encyclopedia galactica any time soon.

I've read that Enciclopedia Treccani will be put online soon. Its physics editor was Enrico Fermi.

I've seen mountains from Triglav in Slovenia (beautiful its National Park) to Mont Blanc from Courmayeur and also from the Aiguilles Rouges above Chamonix. I've talked with Walter Bonatti in Van Veny and in Milano. Great man.

I have seen lights zigzagging in the night in 1966, unlike airplanes or satellites. That is my only experience of UFOs. They were Unidentified Flying Objects.
