Man dies having sex with a scarecrow which was wearing a six-inch strap-on penis

An Argentinian man died while having sex with a scarecrow that he had fitted with a six-inch strap-on penis, police believe.
He had also painted a mouth onto it with lipstick, and given it a wig, before having sex.
Police found the rotting corpse of Jose Alberto, 58, lying next to his ‘lover’.
Rodolfo Moure, a spokesman for the prosecutor, said: ‘I initially thought there were two bodies but then I realised one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig.
‘It was lying next to the deceased and had a six-inch strap-on penis.
‘There were no signs of violence and we are working on the assumption that the man died during sex with the scarecrow
‘Straw had been stuffed inside the old clothes that had been sewn together to make the scarecrow.
‘We are now waiting the results of an autopsy.’
Alberto was described as a ‘loner’ by neighbours.

Athena: Lockheed Martin's new laser weapon can destroy a truck from a mile away

Defence and aerospace firm Lockheed Martin has demonstrated a new laser weapon able to successfully disable the engine of a truck from over a mile away.
Sounding like something out of a science fiction movie, the Advanced Test High Energy Asset (ATHENA) is a ground-based system that features a 30kW, single-mode fibre-optic laser that can be used to disarm targets in a non-lethal way.
The laser uses a technique called spectral beam combining, which takes multiple fiber laser modules and directs them at the same point to form a single, powerful beam, making it far more powerful than the 10kW lasers used in other systems. 
During the demonstration, Athena was able to stop a truck by burning through the engine manifold, so that rather than causing the engine to explode, it simply just rendered it unable to work.
Athena is based on Lockheed Martin's existing Area Defense Anti-Munitions (ADAM) system, a portable 10kW fibre laser weapon launched in May 2014 that has proved effective in dealing with air and sea attacks by improvised rockets, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and small boats.

Lasers, unlike projectiles, do not do their damage upon contact with the surface.  Even the most powerful laser will require time to heat the sub-straight to a temperature that will cause melting or destruction of it's intended target.  Not really knowing the extent of modernization of a weapons grade laser leaves doubt as to, HOW MUCH TIME, it might take to complete it's task.  It could be micro seconds, and I doubt I could get my trusty mirror out an aligned correctly before the damage was done.

Then there is the whole deal about latent energy and where that all goes, and how long that might last.  Anyone for hotdogs for dinner tonight?  We could run some very crude tests and extrapolate from there.  Or Not...

“Super Saturn” Has an Enormous Ring System and Maybe Even Exomoons

Astronomers watching the repeated and drawn-out dimming of a relatively nearby Sun-like star have interpreted their observations to indicate an eclipse by a gigantic exoplanet’s complex ring system, similar to Saturn’s except much, much bigger. What’s more, apparent gaps and varying densities of the rings imply the presence of at least one large exomoon, and perhaps even more in the process of formation!
J1407 is a main-sequence orange dwarf star about 434 light-years away*. Over the course of 57 days in spring of 2007 J1407 underwent a “complex series of deep eclipses,” which an international team of astronomers asserts is the result of a ring system around the massive orbiting exoplanet J1407b.
“This planet is much larger than Jupiter or Saturn, and its ring system is roughly 200 times larger than Saturn’s rings are today,” said Eric Mamajek, professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester in New York. “You could think of it as kind of a super Saturn.”
The observations were made through the SuperWASP program, which uses ground-based telescopes to watch for the faint dimming of stars due to transiting exoplanets.
The first study of the eclipses and the likely presence of the ring system was published in 2012, led by Mamajek. Further analysis by the team estimates the number of main ring structures to be 37, with a large and clearly-defined gap located at about 0.4 AU (61 million km/37.9 million miles) out from the “super Saturn” that may harbor a satellite nearly as large as Earth, with an orbital period of two years.
