For bonus points, figure out the transformations necessary to map retrieved letters to a 2D surface.
Researchers say that for the first time, they can read letters inside the scrolls without unrolling them, by using a laserlike beam of X-rays.

I wonder how much of it is accounting data from local businesses.

A large scale endeavor indeed...
In 2005, Royal Dutch Shell, then the fourth-largest company on Earth, bought a drill rig that was both tall, rising almost 250 feet above the waterline, and unusually round. The hull of the Kulluk, as the rig was called, was made of 1.5-inch-thick steel and rounded to better prevent its being ...

Interesting inside scoop on how Neuromancer came to be.

Pretty amazing feat of engineering.
An enormous ship is being built to collect and liquefy gas at sea for the first time.

A series of 3D printed sculptures are designed such that the appendages fit Fibonacci's Sequence, a mathematical sequence that manifest naturally in objects like sunflowers and pinecones. When spun, these sculptures come to life.

Despite its flaws, I found The Imitation Game to be pretty entertaining:

There’s no question that the real-life Turing was decidedly eccentric, and that he didn’t suffer fools gladly.
The Imitation Game not only fatally miscasts the mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing as a character—it also completely destroys any coherent telling of what he and his colleagues were trying to do.

I read the book "INIGMA". Some fiction--but good info. Turing was as very sensitive guy who  was very upset each time a ship was sunk by the NAZI WOLF PACK SUBS. He felt he was responsible because he didn't break the code soon enough. He would go into deep depression when lives were lost and he was so close to cracking the code.
  
My brother "Howard Bell" was on the first B-24 Liberators that the NAVY ordered. It was the first heavy bomber that the NAVY ever had. It was painted all WHITE and designed to locate , track, and destroy Nazi subs that were untouchable before this LONG RANGE BOMBER was deployed.

It was the only plane at the time that could fly R/T to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean to locate and destroy them where the Nazi subs would gathered (undetectable at the time)  to attack American supply fleets, at will, containing HUNDREDS of supply ships going to England.

The Nazi subs would sink 50 or more of these ships cutting off the supply line to our Allies in Europe.  It has been said that if the B-24 had not stopped these Nazi Wolf packs the war may not have been won. So Turing "cracking" the ENIGMA  code and my brother and B-24's did a fantastic job. Both of them need to be given credit for this and talked about more in history classes!  Their story's need to be told--over and over.--What Say You??

Astronomers keeping an eye on Jupiter’s moon Io got a surprise on Dec. 16 when it looked like something had taken a bite out of it: What they saw was another of Jupiter’s moons, Europa, passing directly in front of Io, what astronomers call a transit (or more generically a...

Why didn't the transit police get involved? This could have been prevented, I'll bet! ;-)
