Mars Back Home - SpaceDaily I
think there is a lot that we must do before we ultimately go to Mars.
The main interest in going to Mars is the possibility that life may have
started there, and there may still be extant life there on the planet.
The reason for that hinges on the story of water on Mars. In 1971, the
Mariner 9 mission returned pictures, and we were astonished to see
evidence of large floods, of erosion by dry river valleys all over the
planet. And the reason we were so surprised is, at that time, we knew
that conditions on Mars were very harsh that it was too cold for liquid
water to be there, much, much too cold. Something had to have happened
in the past, we thought, that had changed, and the planet had evolved
from an Earth-like place to the dry, cold desert that we know today.
Nuclear Strategy Hits Congress - SpaceDaily Left: We
don't want big ones anymore, we want little ones instead.
war on terror has largely kept the spotlight off efforts to expand U.S.
nuclear weapons capabilities, but elements of the Bush administration's
proposed 2005 budget currently before Congress include controversial
measures toward that goal. "Nuclear weapons will remain
a critical element in U.S. national security," U.S. National
Nuclear Security Administrator Linton Brooks said Tuesday at the
conservative Heritage Foundation. The
Bush administration has operated under that premise, working to expand
research on new kinds of nuclear bombs.
Secrets Via Teleportation - SpaceDaily ANU
researchers in Canberra have announced that they are the first in the
world to demonstrate the sharing of secrets via teleportation using
quantum physics. The research has potential to significantly enhance the
security of computer systems around the world. The researchers used
crystals, lenses and mirrors to produce a pair of 'entangled' laser
beams that are then used to carry fragile information in the form of
quantum states. These quantum states cannot be measured or copied,
making eavesdropping impossible. The transmission of the light
beams constitutes a secret communication scheme with guaranteed
