NASA successfully pilots spacecraft between Saturn and its rings

NASA plans to crash the spacecraft into Saturn to avoid any chance Cassini could someday collide with any ocean-bearing moons that have the potential to support indigenous microbial life. Because Cassini scientists and engineers didn't know what to expect of the gap - although it looked clear, unknown dust and debris could have proved harmful - the spacecraft was turned so its 13-foot-wide (4 meter) antenna acted as a shield as it dove, collecting data all the while.

See What the Power of Project Scorpio Does to a Beetle

Putting aside for one moment that amusing "I can tell", and of course I'd never dispute that one can tell the difference between a 1080p and 4K display, how many times has Spencer shuffled his Scorpio between televisions? I have a Scorpio at home, so I've moved it back and forth from a 1080p TV to a 4K TV - and if you're running on a 1080p TV and you plug Scorpio in you're gonna be able to tell. Read More

Can the US possibly climb out of a huge Davis Cup deficit?

Even Hewitt thought a win might be a bridge too far but his body language on the side of the court said it all as Thompson showed a clinical side when Sock began to lose energy and errors filtered in to his key weapon, a whipping forehand.

Wizards John Wall hit with $15000 fine for criticizing refs
