There are rumors that the ESO telescope at La Silla, Chile, has found a rocky planet orbiting Proxima Centauri at a distance of 4.23 light years. The result should be confirmed within August.

The Murchison Wide Field Array in Australia will be used by the SETI Institute to search for ETI, but at a lower frequency than Arecibo and Green Bank, that is from 103 to 133 MHz. Its observing field covers many of the planets discovered by Kepler.

Nibali has been operate at the collar bone by inserting a plaque. The Dutch girl is recovering and has tweeted. But that road was really dangerous, with a sidewalk that should not have been there.

Frightful fall of Annemiek Van Vleuten who is in intensive care. Mara Abbott deserved to win, I am sorry that Elisa Longo Borghini pushed the other two to a medal.

Nibali has two fractures, one at a wrist and another at the collarbone. He is coming back to Italy with President Renzi and will nor race against the clock. Maybe Fabio Aru can take his place.

Federica Pellegrini leads the 4x100 women freestyle to final with the Italian record.

Internet was before the WWW existed, but it was limited to scientists. On August 6 1991 CERN opened the Internet to all with the World Wide Web based on the HTML language created by Tim Berners-Lee. Then came Netscape and the other GUI browsers.

A Boeing 737 cargo from Paris to Orio al Serio (Bergamo) overshot the runaway and ended with its nose on a highway during a storm. Fortunately it was 4 AM and the motorists were few so they could avoid it.

CERN is not only a particle physics project, the best in the world. It develops many advanced technologies, and has produced the World Wide Web, which we all use.It also sponsors the Sesame project in Jordan, which sees Arab, Iranian, Turk and Israeli scientists cooperating. I am proud that Fabiola Gianotti, and Italian woman, now heads CERN.

I guess all the time and huge amounts of money will be worth it if they find a way to harness nuclear fusion to create cheap power for the masses or maybe counter gravity to make access to space cheaper and safer.

ITER is an international fusion project that has spent so far 15 billion dollars. CERN is spending much less and has given good results.ITER may need another 10 billion dollars before it arrives to break-even, producing as much energy (not electricity) as it consumes. The USA Energy Department has authorized the financing of ITER for two more years, after which it will decide. The USA contribution is about 9% of the total cost. ITER is located in France.

CERN is cooperating with ITER on superconducting magnets, in which field it is a leader.

Quest'anno, siccome molta gente non pagava il canone RAI (112 euro/anno), il Governo l'ha ribassato a 100 euro ma ha deciso che chiunque avesse un contratto per la fornitura di elettricita' lo avrebbe pagato con la fattura di luglio (70 euro) e poi con altre tre fatture da 10 euro.Naturalmente ci sono state molte proteste. Molti hanno gia' un contratto con Sky o con Mediaset, che trasmettono sopratutto calcio. Mediaset ha comperato i diritti della Champions League per tre anni con una cifra enorme e adesso si trova in rosso e cerca di rivenderli ai francesi di Vivendi, che dovrebbero acquistare una percentuale di Mediaset. Ma da quando il Milan non vince piu' e neanche l'Inter molti hanno disdetto il contratto con Mediaset.
Io guardo il ciclismo e le Olimpiadi su RAI, qualche gara (non tutte di Formula 1), quelle trasmesse in diretta su RAI e lo sci d'inverno, sempre su RAI. Il calcio non mi interessa.

RAI 2 trasmette tutte le gare, ma molte finali saranno di notte e vengono ritrasmesse da RAIsport 1 (canale 57) e RAIsport 2 (canale 58) il giorno dopo.RAI 2 e' anche in alta definizione(HD).

La maggior parte dei ciclisti italiani e' al minimo sindacale, circa duemila euro al mese. Poi ci sono i premi delle corse, specialmente al Tour. Chi vince il Tour si prende cinquecentomila franchi svizzeri. Ma bisogna chiamarsi Froome.

The MeerKAT array in South Africa, which will be part of SKA has received its "first light". But I doubt it will be used for SETI.

Vincenzo Nibali cambia team. Correra' per Bahrein Merida nel 2017. Anche Peter Sagan cambia team, per 6 milioni di euro, quasi come un calciatore.
