Today marks a significant step in our work to protect whales and dolphins in tourism. Virgin businesses will only continue to work with suppliers that pledge to no longer take sea mammals from the wild. http://virg.in/tvp

15 years ago we placed the largest server offer in our history: 1680 servers, packed into the now infamous "corkboard" racks that packed four small motherboards onto a single tray. (You can see some preserved racks at Google in Building 43, at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, and at the American Museum of Natural History in DC, http://americanhistory.si.edu/press/fact-sheets/google-corkboard-server-1999.)  

At the time of the order, we had a grand total of 112 servers so 1680 was a huge step.  But by the summer, these racks were running search for millions of users.  In retrospect the design of the racks wasn't optimized for reliability and serviceability, but given that we only had two weeks to design them, and not much money to spend, things worked out fine.

BTW the four white pins in the forefront are the reset buttons for the four servers, and the disks are mounted on a plexiglass board which lies on top of the board (not attached -- there was no time to design a proper bracket).

NASA's Cassini spacecraft and Deep Space Network have uncovered evidence Saturn's moon Enceladus harbors a large underground ocean of liquid water, furthering scientific interest in the moon as a potential home to extraterrestrial microbes.

Researchers theorized the presence of an interior reservoir of water in 2005 when Cassini discovered water vapor and ice spewing from vents near the moon's south pole. The new data provide the first geophysical measurements of the internal structure of Enceladus, consistent with the existence of a hidden ocean inside the moon. Findings from the gravity measurements are in the Friday April 4 edition of the journal Science.

The gravity measurements suggest a large, possibly regional, ocean about 6 miles (10 kilometers) deep, beneath an ice shell about 19 to 25 miles (30 to 40 kilometers) thick. The subsurface ocean evidence supports the inclusion of Enceladus among the most likely places in our solar system to host microbial life. Before Cassini reached Saturn in July 2004, no version of that short list included this icy moon, barely 300 miles (500 kilometers) in diameter.

This illustration depicts Enceladus, which has jets of water vapor and ice gushing from its south pole and the large interior ocean beneath an ice shell.

Something really magical happened when a young girl put some money into one street musician’s hat. This is so awesome!!! This must have been a memorable experience for the young girl and everyone around her! Over 100 musicians from the city’s symphonies and choirs were involved in the street performance! Share this fantastic flash mob […]
