I was gonna create a 'Science & Technology' thread, but I thought this would be more interesting. Let's start with this, from NASA.

http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/home/index.html

Haven't read this but our resident scientists and GP might find interesting: http://www4.nationalacademies.org/news.nsf/isbn/0309090857?OpenDocument

If you find other sites of interest, please post them here.

Nice site, enjoyed one of the articles on there about the research being conducted into creating a suitable environment for humans: http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/spotlight/spirit/a8_20040113.html

When do you predict the first manned mission to Mars will get the green flag? I think they're aiming for 2020, finances permitting.

One of my favourite topics of all time, Nicola Tesla, brings the conspiracy theorists out of the woodwork .... but THIS GUY obviously likes Tesla more than I do:

This site is intriguing. Play with the sliders and watch the figure change. You can add lines or just watch the dots, they're both fascinating.

It's very clever!

You mean superficial like a document which claims links between the presidency, the masons and the illuminutti with analysis like...


The Cuban missile crisis lasted 13 days, which suggests a ploy or fake crisis. The upcoming movie is even entitled "13 Days."

That really is top notch material. :lol:

I have excellent eyesight especially at short to medium range but sometimes see colours oddly. I scored 12 with issues in the blue-green area (there was one tile in particular that looked totally wrong no matter where I put it.)

Boris, would it be OK with you if I moved your post onto the "interesting websites" thread on the main board so that main-board users can see the test?

Yeah, it's hilarious!

Chess is played by two people. They sit opposite each other with a board between them that has a bunch of pieces on it. These pieces move in confusing ways. Each player takes his or her turn, moving pieces until one of two conditions is satisfied. Either a player clearly humiliates his or opponent, or both sides decide that they are too bored and confused to continue playing, and so agree to draw.

There are a few other rules, according to the FIDE Official Tournament Rules:

* White first rule: White always goes first(racist). This rule can be traced back to the time of slavery, when whites always got to go first, and blacks pretty much never got to go at all. Note that there were very few good black players to arise out of this period of chess.
* The Touch-Move rule: if a player attempts to molest their opponent before a checkmate is declared, they must immediately move out of the playing area.
* 'J'ajuste': 'I adjust' - an exception to the 'Touch-move' rule. If a player purrs at another player in French, he or she may touch his or her opponent in various ways.
* Before making each move, a player must always have an agonized look on his/her face, as though constipated.
* Players are not allowed to make up their own rules. Fortunately, this rule does not apply to you, but it does apply to that chess club geek who keeps insisting that 'castling' and 'en passant' are actual rules and perfectly legal during games.

As the name of the section says, Chess rules!!!
