But cryogenic methods first contemplated in science fiction may push the line even further. The idea is to freeze legally dead people in liquid nitrogen in the hope of regenerating them at some future date. View full abstract»

    About 48 kilometers off the eastern coast of the United States, scientists from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, peered over the side of a small research vessel, the Arabella. They had just launched RU27, a 2-meter-long oceanographic probe shaped like a torpedo with wings. Although it sported a bright yellow paint job for good visibility, it was unclear whether anyone would ever see th... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the application of NASA's software that calculates optical aberrations (wavefront errors). The power of this software lies in its ability to use an optical system's existing camera as a sensor to detect its own error, without installing any separate devices. This software is expected to sharpen images from space and improving the image quality of the astronomical telescopes, i... View full abstract»
