For me it's the car chase in Matrix Reloaded.

Trinity: You told me never to get on the freeway. You said it was suicide.

Morpheus: Then let us hope that I was wrong.

Sept. 27, 1997: Communications are suddenly lost with the Mars Pathfinder, here.

No signal was received from the spacecraft on the next Martian day, Sol 84, which began in the evening of Sept. 27.
The team's transmission session began at 11:15 p.m. PDT. The lack of a signal, at that time, was thought to be caused by a possible computer reset incident, ground system problem or low voltage condition.
A reset or a low voltage condition, caused by the aging of the battery, would cause the spacecraft sequence to automatically stop and not execute its planned communication with Earth.
The team attempted to communicate with the spacecraft again on Sept. 29 (Sol 85) and Sept. 30 (Sol 86) with no success.

I bought the Blu Ray version, the Final Cut is awesome. On my 40" HDTV (1080p/24), the colors and the depth of field are impressive. This is the best edition at this time.
10) Message boards : Science (non-SETI) : Helium leak causes set back to CERN and LHC (Message 811499)
Posted 2165 days ago by Profile Nicholas Volodimer
LHC re-start scheduled for 2009...

Apparently, the helium leak has destroyed two supercooled electromagnets and an entire section, and the time necessary for the investigation and repairs precludes a restart before CERN’s obligatory winter maintenance period, bringing the date for restart of the accelerator complex to early spring 2009. LHC beams will then follow.

A bad news...

Sept. 19, 1982: The emoticons... read on Wired

1982: At precisely 11:44 a.m., Scott Fahlman posts the following electronic message to a computer-science department bulletin board at Carnegie Mellon University:

From: Scott E Fahlman
I propose that the following character sequence for joke markers:

Read it sideways. Actually, it is probably more economical to mark things that are NOT jokes, given current trends. For this, use:

I joined the project in '99, at this time I was registered with an other profile name (Cereal_Killer) but I lost access to my "space.com" mail address.
So, I started a new profile with my real name in '04, and a new team in '08.
Now, I have a brand new iMac C2D at 3,06 Ghz (OS X) and an old PC P3 at 930 Mhz (Win2K) running exclusively S@H 24/7.
