Thanks everyone for the replies. :)

New Theory?


Batteries offer best explanation for MH370 crash: investigator



A SIMPLE new theory for MH370’s disappearance points the finger directly at the 221kg of lithium ion batteries on board.

US pilot and aviation engineer Bruce Robertson has outlined the theory on his website, based on known facts about the Malaysia Airlines flight and what it was carrying.

He suggests the lithium ion batteries caught fire sending a cloud of deadly carbon monoxide into the cabin.

SETI's attempt to make contact with other signs of life

Human beings have always wondered if they're alone in the Universe.

In 1960, a young astronomer named Frank Drake decided to find out. He pointed an 85-foot antenna at two distant stars and started listening for signs of life. In that moment, a new discipline was born: the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI.

The epicenter of this search is the SETI Institute, an unassuming office building in Mountain View, California—the heart of Silicon Valley.

Seth Shostak, director of the Center for SETI Research at the institute, says the search for extraterrestrial intelligence is a lonely corner of science. "Worldwide, the total number of people doing this for a job, if you will, is maybe a dozen, maybe fifteen," he says. "Something like that. It's very small, terribly small."

:((((((

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - An unmanned Space Exploration Technologies rocket exploded about two minutes after liftoff from Florida on Sunday, destroying a cargo ship bound for the International Space Station in the latest in a string of mishaps in supplying the orbiting outpost.

The 208-foot-tall (63-meter) rocket, built and flown by the company known as SpaceX that is owned by technology entrepreneur Elon Musk, had previously made 18 successful launches since its 2010 debut. Those included six cargo runs for NASA under a 15-flight contract worth more than $2 billion.

Guinea Quarantines Coastal Towns to End Ebola

FORECARIAH, GUINEA—

Guinea authorities have implemented a quarantine this week aimed at finally ending the spread of Ebola in the country's coastal region, the one area where the virus continues to claim lives.

Three towns were quarantined in the Forecariah district, where the Ebola outbreak has persisted for more than a year.

Mohamed Camara, who's coordinating Forecariah's fight against Ebola, said the quarantine was implemented after residents of Dixinn Bouramaya, Kolota and Tamaranci voluntarily agreed to stay at home for 21 days.

Mysterious for now.

What Is Glittering at Pluto’s North Pole?

As the New Horizons spacecraft nears Pluto, more details are coming into view, and we are beginning to see surface features on the tiny world.
And that means we’ll see things that are … odd. Perhaps “as yet unexplained” is a better term, since we’re seeing these markings for the first time in human history. The press releases have been amazing, but the images released have been enlarged and processed in complex ways to bring out details.


Pictures of Pluto taken at 05:37:30 (left) and 30 seconds earlier (right), enlarged and contrast enhanced.

Ebola: Sierra Leone, Guinea quarantine people, villages again



Authorities in Sierra Leone have quarantined three doctors and 28 nurses after a woman who recently gave birth tested positive for Ebola.

The woman was transferred to an emergency ward in a hospital in the capital Free Town after doctors were unable to stop her bleeding.

It was confirmed she was infected with the deadly virus last Saturday.
