It’s Launch Day! NASA’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellite is ready for launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Launch Complex 41. Liftoff is scheduled for 9:05 p.m. EST, the opening of a 40-minute launch window. Live coverage on NASA TV begins at 6:30 p.m.

The TDRS-L spacecraft is the second of three new satellites designed to ensure vital operational continuity for NASA by expanding the lifespan of the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) fleet, which consists of eight satellites in geosynchronous orbit. The spacecraft provide tracking, telemetry, command and high bandwidth data return services for numerous science and human exploration missions orbiting Earth.

There's a new kind of planet to add to Kepler's cornucopia of alien worlds, and you won't find it in Earth's own solar system. Introducing Mini-Neptunes: http://oak.ctx.ly/r/lt6b

Intel announces Edison, a computer the size of an SD card
Intel built a processor for wearable computing, and now it has a tiny computer where that processor can live. At CES 2014, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced Edison, "a full Pentium-class PC" that's the size and shape of the SD card you might otherwise put in your camera. It's powered by a dual-core Quark SOC, runs Linux, and has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, according to the company. Intel even has a specific app store designed for Edison, and a special version of Wolfram that will come to the tiny computer.

Lasers might be the cure for brain diseases such as #Alzheimer’s and #Parkinson’s:

Researchers have made a discovery that may lead to the curing of diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease through photo therapy.
The researchers discovered (http://goo.gl/LEM7Xc) that it is possible to distinguish aggregations of the proteins, believed to cause the diseases, from the the well-functioning proteins in the body by using multi-photon laser technique.
