A new type of nanodevice for computer microprocessors is being developed that can mimic the functioning of a biological synapse -- the place where a signal passes from one nerve cell to another in the body, report scientists.

Astronomers have found distinct spiral arms in the disk of gas and dust surrounding the young star Elias 2-27. While similar features have been observed on the surfaces of such disks before, this is the first time they have been identified within the disk, where planet formation takes place. Structures such as these could either indicate the presence of a newly formed planet, or else create the necessary conditions for a planet to form. As such, ...

They’re Not Coming Back: The Religiously Unaffiliated and the Post-Religious Era - The wistful refrain among religionists has for some time now been the same: the religiously unaffiliated will return to religious practice one of these days. New numbers from a survey jointly conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute and Religion News Service, however, might crush whatever hope is left about luring Nones back into the fold.

SpaceX plans to build a “self-sustaining city” on Mars, according to its founder Elon Musk. But, while we now know a lot more about how SpaceX plans to get to Mars, details about how people will actually survive up there remain sketchy.

Our brains hold on to memories via physical changes in synapses, the tiny connections between neurons. Unexpected molecular mechanisms by which these changes take place have now been revealed by new research.

ESA's Rosetta spacecraft arrived at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 6 August 2014, following a ten-year journey through the Solar System after its launch on 2 March 2004. The Philae lander was sent down to the surface of the comet on 12 November 2014. Confirmation of the end of mission is expected from ESA's main control room at 11:20 GMT or 13:20 CEST +/- 20 minutes on 30 September, with the spacecraft set on a collision course with the comet...

Story
Introduction
I've been programming computers since the 1970s starting as a hobby in high school, and since the 1980s professionally. I read lots of books and magazines, especially on science and science fiction. I really enjoy things like spending a nice summer day canoeing/kayaking down a river, but it's a rare time I get that kind of opportunity. I play pool - I used to play pool in a league in Eaton County, Michigan, but now just play once in a while, since I moved. I was born in Marshall, Michigan, but grew up in Texas, Oklahoma, and Oregon, and I've also lived in California and Georgia, as well as Michigan. Recently I've set my sights on Florida - specifically, the Miami metro area. I had wanted to move to Arizona, but I finally realized I wanted to be not just in a warmer climate in the winter, but also close to the ocean.
