Results: Rampant Star Birth Left Universal Imprint - Space.com There's
an intriguing glow across the universe that astronomers have been trying
to pin down for years. Recent observations appear to have found the
source: compact galaxies in the early universe that were generating
stars at a furious pace. In this case, it is a wavelength of
radiation half a millimeter long that straddles the high end of the
radio spectrum and the low end of the infrared.
Australia To Acquire New Longer Range Cruise Missiles - SpaceDaily Left: "The
greatest advantage is its safety of aircrews. It means that weapons can be
dispatched further away from the target. That's the trend these days."

Australia announced plans Thursday to acquire long-range
cruise missiles that will give its defence force the "most lethal
capacity" for air combat in the region. Defence Minister Robert Hill said
the air-to-surface missiles would have the capacity to destroy air and sea
targets up to 400 kilometres (250 miles) away and would enter into service
between 2007 and 2009.
Using Proteins To Develop Nanoparticles To Aid Environmental Remediation - SpaceDaily The
researchers have been exploring how these nanoparticles can be used in
environmental remediation, such as helping to transform toxic metals in
lakes, rivers or streams, and in groundwater for easier cleanup.
"The protein we use to make these particles is ferritin, which is a
protein we carry around in our blood," says Daniel R. Strongin,
Ph.D., professor of chemistry at Temple. "For example, there are
certain oxidation states that would make the metals precipitate in
solution, or fall out of solution so they can't be carried downstream or
by groundwater," explains Strongin.
