Easier to use than GIMP/Photoshop

If you've ever played with Nik Software's plugins before, you'll know that they allow some very powerful effects quite easily. I've no doubt that a Photoshop/GIMP ninja could achieve similar results, but I dare you to do it as quickly and painlessly.

DPReview recently favourably reviewed this same iPad App if you're interested: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/snapseed/

Making a storage mountain out of a molecule

Don't mean to nitpick, but...

"The Notts team, led by Dr Steven Liddle, created a depleted uranium molecule, one with its radio-active element removed..."

Considering that there is no stable isotope of uranium, depleted uranium is that in which the most active radionuclides have been removed - leaving behind uranium-238, which has a half-life of 4.5 billion or so years. So it's not *very* radioactive, but it certainly still counts as radioactive.

Still, a nice article. :)

Reg hack insults the Parachute Regiment

A fact's a fact

It's got to the stage where a jump's a jump, for those watching from the ground. Flashing a bit of skin or having lumps in the correct locations is a sure-fire way of increasing the interest of a lay person.

I'm sure that a nude female parachute regiment would have all eyes agape at the sky. :)

The return of Killer Chlorine

RE: So DDT wasn't bad?

No, it wasn't.

DDT should still be used to spray the insides of human dwellings in mosquito prone areas, as it has been proved to be a life saver and perfectly safe for the environment when not used to excess in areas where it is likely to quickly end up in aquatic systems.
