Researchers have demonstrated a display that lets you watch 3-D films in a movie theater without extra eyewear. Dubbed 'Cinema 3D,' the prototype uses a special array of lenses and mirrors to enable viewers to watch a 3-D movie from any seat in a theater.

In a historic find, a large fragment of an Egyptian statue measuring 45 X 40 centimeters, made of lime-stone, was discovered in the course of the current season of excavations at Tel-Hazor, north of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. Only the lower part of the statue survived, depicting the crouching feet of a male figure, seated on a square base on which a few lines in the Egyptian hieroglyphic script are inscribed.

The Askaryan Radio Array team recently published a performance review of the first two stations to come online, showing great potential for the detector to push forward understanding of the cosmos once it's fully operational.

Astronomers have discovered for the first time that the hot gas in the halo of the Milky Way galaxy is spinning in the same direction and at comparable speed as the galaxy's disk, which contains our stars, planets, gas, and dust. This new knowledge sheds light on how individual atoms have assembled into stars, planets, and galaxies like our own, and what the future holds for these galaxies.

A single-cell, bacterium-like organism clinging to volcanic sea vents may have been the forebear of every animal, plant and microbe on earth.

Proof of the religious status of government and politics, in regard to privilege.
 
City-goers can enjoy 4 a.m. last-calls and Uber-X-a-plenty this week in Philly. So why not always?

Rope and twine are critical components in the technology of mobile hunters and gatherers. In exceptional cases impressions of string have been found in fired clay and on rare occasions string was depicted in the contexts of Ice Age art, but on the whole almost nothing is known about string, rope and textiles form the Paleolithic. Researchers have now discovered a tool used to make early rope.

Why do we feel good about giving to charity when there is no direct benefit to ourselves, and feel bad about cheating the system? Mathematicians may have found an answer to the longstanding puzzle as to why we have evolved to cooperate.

Time to smash the beaker when thinking about oxygen concentrations in water, at the time when animal life first evolved. Oceans stacked oxygen here and depleted it there, as a new novel model demonstrates. It may well toss a wrench into the way we have dated the evolution of the earliest animals.

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.
