WWII has been over for nearly 70 years now, but some aircraft and soldiers are still missing. One of the mysteries of WWII has been solved with a largely intact RAF fighter plane recently being discovered deep in the Sahara desert. The aircraft is said to be largely intact.
A rock from the Red Planet was discovered in the Sahara desert, and has been under study for the last year. The results from the study show that it is different from other Martian rocks that have been discovered, in that it contains more water and is older than the majority of other discoveries. The finding has been named NWA 7034, is said to be 2.1 billion years old, and offers a glimpse into Mars' history.
We can safely say that there's all sorts of implementations for solar power. Even today, we saw what it could do for a soccer ball. But, let's take things a bit bigger, shall we? Start looking at the big picture, more or less. And with as grand of plans as the European Union seems to have, it may not get any bigger than this.
Damn you, Warner Crocker! Here I am, having just about managed to staunch the flow of drool that threatened to drown my cat and short-circuit my keyboard thanks to lusting over TabletKiosk's Sahara i440D Tablet PC, and you go and get me all moist again with your bearded review.
My ageing tc1100 was already looking pretty shabby in comparison to the new Sahara slates from TabletKiosk, and having now read Steve's hands-on experience of them over at GottaBeMobile its taken to snuffling sadly in the corner of the room.
No surprise, really; with dual active and passive digitisers (meaning finger touch and more accurate stylus control), easily accessed RAM, hard-drive and wireless modules for future upgrades, and a casing design not only minimalistically attractive but obviously well thought through, the i440D is edging its way to the top of the list for those considering tablet upgrades.
Jeep has announced that the special Altitude editions of several of its popular vehicles will be debuting in 2014. The vehicles that get the Altitude treatment for the first time in 2014 will include the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, and Wrangler. Those three new Altitude models join the existing Altitude Compass and Patriot models.
A satellite put into orbit around the Earth by the European Space Agency called the Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer or GOCE has completed its mission. Rather than leaving the satellite aimlessly orbiting the planet forever, the ESA is having the satellite reenter the Earth's atmosphere. The satellite weighs about ton and experts believe that some parts of the satellite will impact the surface of the earth.
In 2012, Jeep showed off a concept Wrangler called the Dragon, a model that it decided to put into limited production and will begin offering for sale next month. Unlike some limited edition models, the Wrangler Dragon has the same specifications as the average Wrangler, but comes with a new design that features, not surprisingly, a dragon.
Google has been throwing a lot of effort and money into its Google Fiber gigabit Internet plans, having announced several cities in the past couple months that are slated to get the service. That won't be the extent of its dabbling in the territory of Internet provider services, however, if sources who spoke to the Wall Street Journal are correct. Reportedly, Google plans to bring wireless Internet to a billion or so new users in emerging markets.
Researchers from IBM have created a very impressive and affordable new photovoltaic system that is capable of concentrating solar radiation up to 2000 times. The system is also capable of converting 80% of incoming solar radiation into useful energy. Other than simply creating solar electricity, the system also has two other very important capabilities.
