Quantum machines rewrite the rules for computing. While NASA and Google test one, some debate whether a quantum computer even exists yet. When they do, it'll usher in huge changes in how we handle research, like space exploration, cryptography and cancer. http://bit.ly/1iZ1gzI

Hunting for Earth 2.0! ‪#‎NASA‬ announced today that it has found 715 ‪#‎exoplanets‬ -- 4 of them are potentially habitable. "There are an abundance of habitable Earth-sized planets. Our goal is to find Earth 2.0 -- an Earth-like planet that could hold life," said one NASA scientist. http://bit.ly/1mCLlVP ‪#‎planet‬

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Mars rovers Opportunity and Spirit being on the Red Planet, NASA scientists say a robotic-human team will get astronauts to Mars. One scientist said today, "Now, when I look at Mars in the sky, it's a totally different feeling. I look at Mars rise in the sky and I think, 'Yah, I know that place.' We've all experienced Mars through these rovers. Was there ever life there? We don't have the answer yet, but we're a lot closer than we used to be." http://bit.ly/1ie88oO

Driving robots! Team Thor takes on the driving course at the DARPA Robotics Challenge in southern Florida today. The Virginia Tech team is celebrating as it was only the second team to finish the course so far. #DARPAdrc

Here is a meditation garden Google created for employees on its Mountain View campus. A growing number of tech companies are offering employees mindfulness, meditation or yoga classes to help them clear their minds, be creative and balance work and home life. Would this work for you or do you think it's just a fad?

I certainly hope it's not a fad! I believe that companies that make the well-being of their employees a priority will be the most successful. Letting employees have time to clear their minds - especially during crucial projects - will produce a better product/outcome.

On Sunday my friend's brother died. He should be in the prime of his life, raising his 3 young kids. It's another sad reminder that life is unpredictable. Another reminder that I shouldn't complain about getting older. I'm lucky to be growing older, to hit another birthday. Another reminder that if you haven't been out dancing in a while, go do it. If you want to learn something new, do it. If you want to go somewhere, go. Love someone? Tell them. Play with your dog. Call people you miss. Plant a garden. Swim in the ocean. Go live.

Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are using #nanotech to develop smart suits they hope will protect soldiers from biological and chemical attacks. Similar tech could one day be used to create smart clothes for infants and athletes, or smart body armor for soldiers. http://bit.ly/1meTZcQ  @Livermore_Lab +Worcester Polytechnic Institute

As #Santa heads out on his big #Christmas Eve trip, you'll want to track his progress as he and his reindeer fly around the world. Here's how to do that! Volunteers at NORAD are tracking his prep and flight on their Web site and they'll even take phone and email questions. You also can track Santa's trip with Google. Get all your Santa tracking info here! http://bit.ly/1fYcJuh

NASA's robot is looking good hanging out at the DARPA Robotics Challenge in southern Florida this weekend. But it's not doing so well on the scoreboard, with no points so far. NASA's JPL team is doing much better with its RoboSimian bringing in 8 points so far.

Very cool robots being shown off here at the DARPA Robotics Challenge. Walking, climbing, drilling, door opening and car-driving robots all over the place. Will report in on the coolest stuff we see here.@sgaudin#DARPA http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9244913/Tech_pit_crews_prep_for_robot_speedway_showdown … …
