    News Manchester Arena blast: 19 dead and about 50 hurt

    My sister attended the same primary school as the little girl who was killed. My dad tells me the main road through the village is now festooned with pink ribbons and balloons. Can't type any more - cant see the screen clearly.

    Extrasolar planet found orbiting Proxima Centauri

    Back on the old M6 forum (anyone remember that?) I posted a Fermi* calculation showing that if we looked for a civilisation 400 light-years away broadcasting a TV signal we would only be receiving one photon every hundred million years. Someone checked the calculation and agreed with me. I just...

    High-res planet textures in archive (tree) format

    Or a "WOW!" signal? I am interested to know why these exist. I can see an anomalous value in the elevation data causing it but there seem to be anomalous points surrounding it (see screenshot below). Are these extra points Orbiter interpolations or are they also real anomalous values in the...
