Tool use at Lockheed-Martin
At 41 seconds in the video you can see that the open end of a combination wrench is used to tighten a nut, how unprofessional.

The substantial problems with the stabiltity of a magnetised plasma decrease with increasing scale. There is a reason why ITER is the largest experiment for controlled nuclear fusion up to this day.
A mass of 2*10^30 kg hydrogen by itself is sufficient to initiate a stable fusion reaction and solve all our energy requirements.
The survey asked an equivalent of "If your car is stolen, what would be its value on the black market?".
Both stealing cars and using personal data for a purpose it was not intended for are punishable by law. In the later case f.i. CELEX:31995L0046 'Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data', Official Journal L 281 , 23/11/1995 P. 0031 - 0050 and national laws like the Dutch 'Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens' supervised by http://www.dutchdpa.nl/ .
You might have a look at
where you can hear what MP3 (the MPEG1 Layer III audio codec, as defined in ISO 11172-3) discards by opening one of the links in the table with dBA values. It is pretty horrible.
My impression is that MP3 leaves the sound intact, but compromises the emotional impact. May be a boffin with access to an fMRI scanner can do some research on this.
For the Hubble Space Telescope image of the M60-NGC4647 system see Figure 1 of the article by Anil C. Seth et al.: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1409.4769.pdf .
"M60-UCD1 is the nearly point-like image in the bottom right. The discovery of a black hole in M60-UCD1 provides evidence that it is the tidally stripped nucleus of a once larger galaxy. We note that NGC 4647 is at approximately the same distance as M60 but the two galaxies are not yet strongly interacting. The inset shows a zoomed version of the g band image of M60-UCD1 with contours showing the surface brightness in 1 mag/arcsec2 intervals."

I remember a story form New Scientist that the very first CDs could not survive transport in the cargobay of an airplane, because the lower airpressure drew bubbles in the CD. Of course the problem was solved in subsequent pressings of CDs.
My coat is the one with the Hollerith cards in the pocket.
That I can read ElReg doesn't mean I can't read Chinese, all be it very slowly.
BTW the link leads to the video http://weibo.com/u/3957583411#_loginLayer_1405984877559 which suggests the hacker is using a mobile phone. The car is NOT moving.
May be there is just a little green man inside, you never know these days.
and the Swiss will also charge you CHF 12.50 p.p. for entry to the castle.

Not if 99% of rocket launches succeed. Nor if 99.9% of rocket launches succeed.
Now the failures only give a nice show and some smoke:
Astronomers can wait or a future generation will reap the results. Explore space, but there is no need to speed things up.
BTW the next tansit of Venus is in December 2117.
Far more interesting than the drunkard's walk is a Lévy flight. This is also a random walk, but now small steps are interspersed with sporadic very long steps.
Wandering albatrosses use this search strategy on their voyages on the largely empty ocean.
Tux because it is also a bird.
Secure encryption is only possible when the key is longer than the message.
During WW II "Die Rote Kapelle" used for its daily radio transmissions from Brussels to the Kremlin an antiquarian unpublished roman as its codebook.
It is unclear how Chadder shares its key(s), how they are generated and what they are.
May be the museum should show a realistic waxwork of an engineer oiling
the IBM machinery at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
IBM's German branch, the Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen Gesellshaft, was deeply involved in the running of the Nazi bureaucracy consuming 1500 million punch cards a year.
