Science News Comments 

U.S. Military Wants to Own the Weather - Space.com   Military officials and weather modification experts could be on the verge of joining forces to better gauge, react to, and possibly nullify future hostile forces churned out by Mother Nature. While some consider the idea farfetched, some military tacticians have already pondered ways to turn weather into a weapon.  The U.S. military reaction in the wake of Hurricane Katrina that slammed the U.S. Gulf coast might be viewed as a harbinger of things to come.   
Bangladesh, Pakistan Team Up With China On Space Cooperation - SpaceDaily  Left:  The formation of the Apsco will be beneficial to further exchanges and cooperation in space technology and its application and promoting economic and social development, and common prosperity, in the region, he said.  Seven Asia-Pacific nations, including Bangladesh and Pakistan, on Friday teamed up with emerging space giant, China, and signed a convention on space cooperation to set up a formal organisation. The Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organisation (Apsco), an international governmental organisation with its headquarters in Beijing, aims to promote multilateral cooperation in space technology and its application in the region. The eight nations are Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Iran, Mongolia, Pakistan, Peru and Thailand. Representatives from Argentina, Malaysia, the Philippines, Russia, Ukraine also attended the signing ceremony of the Apsco convention. The Apsco will be officially set up in Beijing after China receives final approval from at least five participating countries, Xinhua news agency reported.         

Managing Murphy's Law on Mars - SpaceDaily  Left: Loud and clear from the MEPAG report is that "Martian dust is a #1 risk," says Jim Garvin, NASA chief scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center. "We need to understand the dust in designing power systems, space suits and filtration systems. We need to mitigate it, keep it out, figure out how to live with it."  This is it: the moment of truth. The spacecraft door has just clanged shut behind you, locking you and your fellow astronauts into the small cabin that will be your home for the next half-year's journey through interplanetary space - at the end of which you personally will be the first human to set foot on Mars. According to Murphy's Law, whatever can go wrong, will go wrong, and presumably this applies on Mars as well as Earth.
