Hanno un bel coraggio queste donne a buttarsi nel canalone ripidissimo delle Tofane. Io sono salito sula Tofana II assieme a un mio amico che e' appena morto in Australia dove era emigrato in cerca di lavoro, come molti italiani.Ciao Giorgio.

All this is simply speculation.There is no hard evidence and probably it will never be.

Climbing solo is not a stunt but a way of life. You feel like being part of a great scene. I have done it only on easy climbs, but that is also dangerous. You lose the tension you feel on a difficult climb and you make mistakes. That is why great solo climbers, like Paul Preuss of Austria and my friend Enzo Cozzolino nicknamed "Grongo" (a fish) for his teeth die on climbs well below their capabilities.

As a matter of fact, "free climbing" (in libera in Italy) meant using only your hands, not ropes, pitons and belays. I have lost a few friends doing "libera".

Felix Neureuther vince lo slalom di Wengen davanti a Stefano Gross e Hennk Kristoffersen. Come avevo previsto, la libera di Cortina e' stata rimandato a domani a causa di una nevicata che ha reso felici gli albergatori

The Beagle UK spacecraft has been identified on the Mars surface. It landed OK but did not give any radio signal, so its fate was unknown. Now scientists can at least see the marks left by it on the Mars surface.

Domani e' prevista neve sulle Alpi. Lo slalom non dovrebbe soffrire ma la libera di Cortina si. Oggi c'era nebbia, e per questo e' stata accorciata. Domani si vedra'.

AFAIK the DSCOVR observatory (GoreSAT) to be launched Jan 29 atop a SpaceX rocket from Cape Canaveral is sent to L1.

After reading the information on the NOAA site, I think the main purpose of this mission will be that of giving an early warning in the event of a dangerouus coronal mass ejection or flare from the Sun. The purpose of finding more exoplanets will be best served by the New Generation Transit Survey just started from the European Southern Observatory on Cerro Paranal in Chile.

I went to the NASA site to get more information on it and did not find any. Then I reread the "Nature" article and understood that it was not a NASA mission but a NOAA mission, although its launch will happen from Cape Canaveral.

The European Southern Observatory has opened its New Generation Transit Survey at Cerro Paranal in Chile. It is an array of 20 cm mirror telescopes dedicated to the search of exoplanets.

The DSCOVR (Deep Space Climate Observatory) spacecraft, sponsored by Al Gore for Earth monitoring mission from a Lagrange point, is to be launched by NASA on January 29 after a ten years holdup due, says "Nature", mostly to political reasons. Its EPIC viewing instrument meanwhile has been checked and repaired to avoid a Hubble-like mishap. It would be difficult to send a repair mission to a Lagrange point.

Domani sono previste nevicate sulle Alpi. Forse e' per questo che la libera del Lauberhorn e' stata spostata da sabato a domenica. Sabato c'e' lo slalom.
38) Message boards : Number crunching : installation of BOINC under normal user account in Win8.1 x64 (Message 1627616)
Posted 17 days ago by Profile tullio
I bought a new PC and found it had a Windows 8 64-bit installed (no DVD). I was asked to create a user and I gave a password. Then I installed BOINC 7.4.27 and Virtual Box 4.3.12 which I needed to run the CERN programs written in Scientific Linux.
Since I am a UNIX and Linux user, I only did what the system asked me to do. I update Windows regularly and use Windows Defender to protect it. The only problem I find is when the system asks me to restart it after an update but, luckily, the CERN programs Atlas@home, vLHC@home and CernVM_WebAPI restart regularly after a shutdown, and so does BOINC.

Complimenti a Frida Hansdotter (Svezia). A Flachau ha battuto in slalom Tina Maze e Mikaela Shriffin. Ora le donne vanno a Cortina per due libere e un SuperG.

I shall be taking an online course on the Higgs boson starting on January 26. It is a free course from Edinburgh University and Peter Higgs himself is taking part in it.
