HIDDEN OCEAN of LIVING SOUP found on Enceladus, moon of Saturn

A beautiful photo of Enceladus

I'd like to buy the whole of the Cassini team a beer for their continuing brilliance but to furnish them with the amount of alcohol they deserve would leave me brassic, and them too drunk to continue working.

"Local football will never be the same again..."

Seeing as FIFA refuse to use computers to determine whether or not a goal has been scored, I don't think this development will have much of an impact on footy.

Tributes

"Pi has inspired other tributes as well, including iPhone apps, a feature film, T-shirts, and one pizza joint in San Francisco and a chain of them based in St Louis – and, of course, there's the Raspberry Pi."

Not forgetting the Big Muff Pi and associated spin-offs.

Re: Balls to that!

Yowser! Apart from that alarming revelation, it would be quicker to use something like 06060606 because then you could use 2 fingers.

Vulcan? Not on our tiny balls. Pluto moons named Kerberos, Styx

Alien

Legacy

He has already been immortalised by neurologists; time perception is, of course, governed by the Shatner's Bassoon. There's still plenty of potential for the name Vulcan to be assigned to more appropriate rock in the galaxy, there isn't a shortage of them. I daresay the trekkies will have cause to celebrate one day.

Doom is awesome

I saw Street Fighter in the cinema when i was about 10, and realised it was a turkey back then. Having watched it again recently, it is devoid of the vast majority of the special moves, except for some throws that don't require any CGI. The word HADOUKEN appears nowhere in the film.

Super Mario Bros. concentrates far too much on the brothers' plumbing skills and not enough on the jumping/mushroom-eating for my liking.

David Webb's (above) review of Resi is spot on.

Doom looks like it is a real film with an actual budget, game plot-line discrepancies aside. The Rock may not be a great actor but everyone else is at least averagely convincing. And the first-person section is an amazing bit of cinematography.

Can't comment on the rest, haven't seen 'em.
