Bringing 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.  
US Nuclear Strategy Hits Congress - SpaceDaily Left:  We don't want big ones anymore, we want little ones instead.  The 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. 

Sharing 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 security.
