Comet Machholz Approaches the Sun

Why is Comet Maccholz so depleted of carbon-containing chemicals? Comet 96P/Machholz's original fame derives from its getting closer to the Sun than any other short period comet -- half as close as Mercury -- and doing so every five years. To better understand this unusual comet, NASA's Sun-monitoring SOHO spacecraft tracked the comet during its latest approach to the Sun in October. The featured image composite shows the tail-enhanced comet swooping past the Sun. The Sun's bright surface is hidden from view behind a dark occulter, although parts of the Sun's extended corona are visible. Neighboring stars dot the background. One hypothesis holds that these close solar approaches somehow cause Comet Machholz to shed its carbon, while another hypothesis posits that the comet formed with this composition far away -- possibly even in another star system.

Rice May Have Been Domesticated -- Separately -- In South America

Rice was domesticated in South America’s wetlands at least 4,000 years ago, according to a report in Science Magazine. Archaeobotanist José Iriarte examined a collection of rice phytoliths, or bits of silica made by plant cells, from Monte Castelo, an archaeological site in Brazil’s southwestern Amazon basin inhabited for more than 9,000 years. The study suggests that as the rice grains grown by the people living at Monte Castelo increased in size over time. Suggesting people were selectively growing larger and larger rice. Grown at lake edges and river edges, the crop would have ripened during the flooding season, when other food sources might be scarce.

If this truly was a rice domestication, that means South American joins Asia and Africa as an independent inventor of domesticated rice. Rice is thought to have been domesticated in Asia some 11,000 years ago, and in West Africa about 2,000 years ago.

Bilionário quer lançar missão caça-alienígenas

Yuri Milner está procurando enviar uma nave espacial para Encélado para procurar evidências de vida extraterrestre.

Impulsionado por relatos de um oceano subterrâneo de água líquida sob a superfície da lua gelada de Saturno, o bilionário russo está planejando enviar uma sonda robótica para lá nos próximos anos.

Descrevendo Encélado como “o candidato mais promissor” para encontrar a vida alienígena no sistema solar, Milner acredita que uma análise de suas plumas de água poderia fornecer “uma arma fumegante para a vida abaixo da superfície”.

“Nós formamos um pequeno projeto em torno desta ideia: podemos projetar uma missão de baixo custo e com financiamento privado para Encélado, que pode ser lançada relativamente cedo, e que pode olhar mais profundamente nessas plumas, tentar ver o que está acontecendo lá?” ele disse durante uma conferência recente em Seattle.

Os planos de Milner são particularmente ambiciosos, não só devido à dificuldade inerente ao alcance de Encélado e à coleta de uma amostra, mas também porque ele espera realizar tudo isso antes da NASA.

Ele descreveu o esforço como “a primeira missão de ciência interplanetária financiada por fundos privados”.

India’s Tamil movie industry created a world record, by making a whole feature length film within one day (23 hours and 58 minutes). The film, Suyamvaram, brought together 14 major directors, 19 cinematographers and over 30 leading actors in the Tamil film industry. So it also holds the Guinness World Record for casting the most “stars in a film.”

And when it was released in 1999, Suyamvaram even got good reviews!
