Saturn's moon Iapetus has a light side and a dark side, like yin and yang. Scientists have at last figured out why.

Via +Slashdot​
Saturn’s Iapetus looks like nothing else we’ve ever seen. What made it so?

Today in History: Higher Primate Ham Travels in Space before Man
On January 31, 1961 — 54 years ago today — a patient, trusting, competent, and cooperative Ham, a chimpanzee astronaut trained by NASA, became the first higher primate to travel safely in space in a suborbital flight. Ham was chosen because chimpanzees are the closest living relatives to humans, sharing more than 98% of human’s genetic blueprint. In NASA’s training program for chimps, Ham emerged at the top of his class, so he was selected to make this first suborbital flight. During his 16 minute suborbital flight, Ham participated in a brief experiment to test if his reactions were as quick in weightlessness as they were on Earth, and he performed the tests only slightly slower in space. Ham beat humans into space, including Yuri Gagarin, the Russian-Soviet cosmonaut, who made human’s first orbital spaceflight on April 12, 1961.

Dr. Jane Goodall, the famous primatologist and the foremost expert on chimpanzees, was dismayed at Ham’s treatment — his kidnapping* from his home environment, his being brought to NASA training facilities for intensive training, and his flight in which he was terrified at times. Since this time, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has organized protests that have put pressure on NASA to end experiments with monkeys (at least for now). 

*“U.S. Air Force engaged collectors to source some chimps from the native forest” in Africa.

Overall (for college housing) it is good. Note that all college housing is bad, whether on-campus or off-campus My son lived here 8-2013 to 7-2015. As a parent I did not have any major bill problems, no excessive dirt problems, and he learned to cook. It is a four bed, four bath, apartment, so the other three suite-mates, this is very important when regarding kitchen, living room, but he had a private bath and there is a washer-drier in the unit. Unlike on-campus, it is a 12 month lease, so he did not have to evacuate on the holidays. There is a reasonably safe car parking area, and it has a gate.

Basic good Chinese menu. Well cooked. Honest. They also have a Thai menu but the waitress could not understand my quality questions so went China. Good dinner and an easy walk if you near the Fulton Street center.

A compound inside Jerusalem run by nuns. Excellent location, though it is in the Arab section it is safe. Think of it as a large B&B.

Horrible, but I was exhausted, while going to my room a dead mouse in the hallway by my room door got me to turn around and keep driving. At least they gave me back my money.

Every single year for 15 years. It is a bit rough, and always crowded. It is two building joined together, the north side is a bar, and the south side is the kitchen and dinning are, well not really, it is like a long noodle. It you get there at 6pm, you will not find a seat.

Scary. No cops with lots of bums having around. Bring exact fare, credit/debit cards can NOT be used, the guy in the booth will not give you change, the ATM charges a $3.50 fee for $20 but the coin change machine only returns $0.25 coins, so you will be walking around with a pocket full of quarters and homeless guys asking you for money. It is a lot cheaper than a cab, but very anxiety generating. Definitely not to be done in the evening. The buses work well and are on time, though. ** this is a per a 6'2' USF student that took the Megabus from the Miami airport (which was great), and then took the #5 to campus **
