My wife has been preparing to teach a Mad Science summer camp on robotics. While going through their class supplies, she came across these two old robot friends. As best as we can tell, they weren't designed to operate in sync, but since they both use the same frequency for their remote control, we found they had some interesting moves.

Want to see a rocket launch with your Sunday evening dinner? SpaceX will be launching the DSCOVR satellite at 6:10pm ET tonight. Although we won't see it live, they will also be trying again to land the 14-story first stage of the rocket on a barge floating at see - which will be historic if they succeed. Check it all out here! #NASA #NOAA #SpaceX #Falcon9 http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html#.VNfomVPSlHc

"It's an amazing story, but only a story" - an interesting but ultimately improbable scenario for rescuing the crew of Columbia. This would make a great movie in the vein of "Gravity."

With the recent rash of security vulnerabilities in web browser plugins, here is a good tool to check to make sure you have the latest and greatest versions of the major plugins - Java, Flash, Adobe Reader, Quicktime, Silverlight, and maybe others. Not a bad time to check, because on top of the recent issues with Java, there's another serious issue with Flash that surfaced today.

This one could be bad - or at least that's my initial gut reaction.  Time to put the Java browser plug-ins to rest for good? #infosec
