Still, that’s a minor annoyance compared to the frankly bizarre brake pedal, which shuffles up and down so feverishly against the weight of your foot as the computers juggle regenerative braking with the normal kind that you think there must be something wrong. Blending those two methods of braking seamlessly is a fiendishly difficult thing to do and, as it stands, Porsche is yet to master that art with this car. On the positive side it feels unusually agile and alert along a twisting road for one so big and heavy and it finds huge grip in the road surface, too, but it isnt fun to drive in the conventional sense. Instead, it feels sure-footed and very safe. The steering, meanwhile, is precise and more or less slack free, but you can guide the car through corner after corner without ever feeling the rack load up. It’s just completely digital.

Nobody is sure what these two objects are but they do seem like they were made and placed there. By UFOholic Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, named after the Greek mythological characters attributed to fear and dread. The small satellites are irregular in shape and circle the planet in strange orbits. Most astronomers agree their shape is an indicator of their origin: asteroids caught up in Marsgravitational pull. NASA images show that Phobos, the smaller of the two has a peculiar structure on its surface. Rectangular in shape and standing close to 300 feet tall, the so-called monolith has sparked a great deal of controversy since it was first discovered by the Mars Global Surveyor mission in 1998. When people find out about that they are going to say, ‘Who put that there? Who put that there?” Buzz Aldrin, Apollo astronaut. ET enthusiasts speculate Phobos could be a hollow, artificial body and by extension, they believe the monolith could also be alien in origin.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden shared his thoughts on the life and legacy of Gemini and Apollo astronaut Gene Cernan, who passed away on Jan. 16 at the age of 82. Cernan flew on three separate space missions. He was the second American to walk in space as the pilot on Gemini IX; ventured to the moon on Apollo 10, the pathfinder for the first lunar landing; and as commander of Apollo 17, Cernan holds the distinction of being the last person to leave his footprints on the surface of the moon.

Nick Watt is with me, our political editor. A lot to focus on. What have you picked up from Brussels.

The website finally reports that this feature will launch alongside the Creators Update set to release in spring 2017, so it shouldnt be much longer (even less so for Insider Preview members). If you ask us, Microsoft would do well to find niches that Amazon hasnt yet dominated, like technical documents, white papers, and perhaps even nerdier publications like zines. In the meantime, weve contacted Microsoft for comment and will update this story should we receive a response. Via PCWorld But will books on a Surface Pro 4 beat a Kindle ?

Visual evidence went viral on the web (http://sneakernews.com/2016/11/27/black-friday-sale-destroys-seattle-nike-outlet/) and showed a chaotic landscape of shoes and empty boxes that was knee-deep in spots. To me the images were awesome but definitely not surprising. My most intense recovery experiences occurred when I worked in a large department store. Sorting and reorganizing displays of shirts, jeans, athletic gear, and other apparel often went on late into the night after closing time. I often thought of Sisyphus pushing his boulder up the hill only to see it roll down day after day, but he probably would have traded places with me in a heartbeat. "You've got it so good," he'd say. "I'm on a steep slope, with this same boring rock forever. You have a level surface to walk on, and a whole bunch of different things to look at while you put them back.

For some time, scientists have suspected that life may have existed on Mars in the deep past. Owing to the presence of a thicker atmosphere and liquid water on its surface, it is entirely possible that the simplest of organisms might have begun to evolve there. And for those looking to make Mars a home for humanity someday, it is hoped that these conditions (i.e favorable to life) could be recreated again someday. But as it turns out, there are some terrestrial organisms that could survive on Mars as it is today. According to a recent study by a team of researchers from the Arkansas Center for Space and Planetary Sciences (ACSPS) at the University of Arkansas, four species of methanogenic microorganisms have shown that they could withstand one of the most severe conditions on Mars, which is its low-pressure atmosphere. The study, titled Low Pressure Tolerance by Methanogens in an Aqueous Environment: Implications for Subsurface Life on Mars ,” was recently published in the journal Origins of Life and Evolution of Biospheres .
