As the closest planet to Earth, Venus is a relatively easy object to observe. However, many mysteries remain, not least the super-rotation of Venus' atmosphere, which enables high altitude winds to circle the planet in only four days. Now images of cloud features sent back by ESA's Venus Express orbiter have revealed that these remarkably rapid winds are becoming even faster.

Title link as always, but note the list has power consumption on it. Tianhe-2 consumes at least 17 MW of power...I'm willing to bet that does NOT include cooling.

I know I’ve written about this before, but Richard Poynder’s new post reminds me that we Brits really do need to be up in arms over the abject behaviour of our supposed representatives, the research councils (RCUK). As a direct result of this policy, the publisher Emerald has now introduced 24-month embargoes on RCUK-funded papers, […]
Its not just the algorithms. Its the the friends we pick online too. We cannot afford to just be friends with those which totally agree with us.
Rather a near Venus and an Early Mars. So, no Grendels.
What I don't quite get is...why a bicycle? Is it a stand in for a motorcycle in a future prototype?
