Cool stuff Microsoft! :)
You might not think it, looking at the ribbon UI and the missing Start button in Windows 8, but Microsoft has one of the largest R&D departments in the world.

Astronomers have confirmed the existence of a new class of planet - a waterworld with a thick, steamy atmosphere.

Yeah, I think so too. I watched a very good documentary on Deep Sea Volcanoes on Netflix the other night, I knew about extremophiles but it went into really good detail. There's bacteria living on Earth deep inside the underwater vents the magma is shooting out -- a bacteria converts the poisonous metals into energy, a big game of symbiosis. Check that documentary out if you can - it details what happens after a vent shuts off too, there's an interesting creature that farms energy out of the corpses of all that stuff that was alive breathing the metals - and there's a possibility that such a place is where all life formed. The red tubeworms you've probably seen in most of the vent pictures get their red pigment from hemoglobin in their blood, just like ours. Pretty neat -- so similar to us, but soooo different.

Very scary, real, and important. "The three numbers I've described are daunting – they may define an essentially impossible future. But at least they provide intellectual clarity about the greatest challenge humans have ever faced. We know how much we can burn, and we know who's planning to burn more."
Three simple numbers that add up to global catastrophe - and that make clear who the real enemy is

Cool advancement on aging :)
Whether it's a good idea or not, many people fantasize about the idea of being able to live forever. While scientists haven't been shying away from the problem, progress has been slow. Now, a team of ...

Oy, I'll pass. Being youthful until say your 70's would be awesome, but there's already 7 billion people on the planet and the growth rate would jump a lot if the birth/death ratio was twisted by science. It'd be extremely difficult to keep up with a surging population resource-wise.

I like to make and do stuff on the computer, I also like to make and do stuff in real life. You could say I like to make and do stuff, but you would be wrong. Instead of listening to me, you should go listen to Alan Watts - he has much more interesting things to tell you.
