#superconducting @ -70˚C
Fantastic discussion about confirming this hydrogen sulfide molecule superconducting at a record-breaking 203 kelvin (–70 ˚C).
Hope it is validated!
Measurements show that hydrogen sulfide superconducts much closer to room temperature than other materials.

When LEDs came of age in the last 10 years, we saw the market change significantly.  #Graphene  is going to do the same, just bigger.

Comet Lander Philae is Awake!

The Rosetta Mission's lander Philae has woken up after a 7-month hibernation on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko!

Yesterday (June 13) at 22:28 CEST (4:28pm EDT/1:28pm PDT), signals were received from Philae at ESA's European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt. The Lander Control Center teams at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) have analyzed more than 300 data packets sent back by Philae.

"Philae is doing very well: It has an operating temperature of -35ºC and has 24 Watts available," explains DLR Philae Project Manager Dr. Stephan Ulamec. "The lander is ready for operations."

Via Rosetta, Philae "spoke" for 85 seconds with the ground team. The first contact since going into hibernation on November 15, 2014 after operating on Comet 67P for about 60 hours.

Analyses of the status data indicate Philae was actually awake earlier as historical data was also received. However, the lander was not been able to make contact earlier.

Scientists are now waiting for the next contact. More than 8000 data packets are still in Philae's mass memory. This will give the DLR team information on what happened to the lander in the past few days.

How to get #XposedFramework Installed on +Android  5 (#Lollipop) +Nexus  7 - Fix/Work-around for system memory error.
Essentially - the /system partition is not big enough with all of Google's apps that get pre-installed as part of the OS. 
Its not to hard to fix...
I ran into (and figured a fix for) a critical system memory error soon after I (tried to) install Xposed on my 2012 Asus Nexus 7 that I just upgraded to Android Lollipop. The error was (something like) Insufficient system storage, need more than 250MB system memory to install.

Me Too,
Look closely... 2 hoops per colour in 3Dimensional space.
 
After watching the lollipop boot animation quite often recently, I wanted to know where those orbs are actually going. These are their paths.

#F1 How Big Data Helps Lewis Hamilton Win Races
They've got the best car, and arguably the best driver in Lewis Hamilton. Mercedes are F1 world champions and are already way ahead in the current season. But there's maybe another reason they're out front. It's called big data. Tom Gibson reports.

This +IEEE Spectrum article has a very good synopsis, with videos, of the winning robot (the #TeamKaist   #DRC -HUBO Robot) in the +DARPA Robotics Challenge.
This transformer robot took first place because it was fast, adaptable, and didn't fall down

I have been going to these guys for over 10 years for service and not once have they tried a "fast one". Quality work and trustworthy. Without question, I would recommend Wetmore motors.
