"Our goal right now is to find 90 percent of the 140-meter asteroids and larger," says Chodas, but right now he estimates they're able to find only 25 to 30 percent of the estimated population of objects that size.
So let me get this straight. They fail to find 75% of NEO asteroids targeted, that are, btw, city busters roughly seven times the diameter of the Chelyabinsk meteor and about 50 times its mass, and even if they do find it they do nothing to stop or divert the incoming asteroid. And this is cool?

I think you're much more level-headed on theodicy.

An American satellite abandoned in 1967, now assumed to simply be space junk, has started transmitting again after 46 years.

This was one of the satellites designed and built by Lincoln Laboratory at MIT between 1965 and 1976, for testing techniques for satellite communication.

Legendary Picks Up Rights to Classic Sci-Fi Novel 'Dune'
A new visit to the planet of Arrakis is being planned.

Legendary has picked up the film and television rights to Dune, the classic science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert, the company announced Monday.

Legendary said its agreement calls for the development and production of possible film and TV projects for a global audience.

Set in the distant future, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, whose family accepts control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, control of Arrakis is highly contested among the noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion and man’s relationship to nature as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s control of Arrakis.

The projects would be produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent and Cale Boyter. Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert are serving as executive producers. …
Here we go, again.

Maybe they'll take a page from Peter Jackson and turn it into half a dozen movies.

You must be super duper excited about this one. It's the second time you've posted it in this thread.

I clicked that link. When it went to a full-screen commercial I did a quick ctrl-w and went back to giving Goose grief.
