Quickies: Juno, microscopic Pac-Man, and hacking
- A space pioneer is ready to track Juno for NASA – “Susan G. Finley began working on rockets before NASA existed. And now at age 79, instead of watching fireworks on the Fourth of July, she will be at her post in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., waiting for confirmation that the latest of its space adventures has succeeded.” From Donna.
- People are calling bullshit on this woman’s memoir about her “gap year in Africa” – “…many people in Zambia and from other countries in the region say there are no records of Congolese rebels invading Zambian villages the way Linton describes.” From Ray.
- Microorganisms chase each other down in a real-life microscopic Pac-Man level – Run, euglena, run!
- When should hacking be legal? – “A group of academics and journalists say a federal computer-fraud law criminalizes their work.”
