They New York Times wrote about the ZKM
correlation was found between the times at which the Sun crosses the spiral arms and six known mass extinction events. Furthermore, we identify five additional historical mass extinction events that might be explained by the motion of the Sun around our Galaxy.
Wegen einer Demonstration ist die Rheinbrücke in Wörth am Ostermontag, 17. April, von zirka 16 Uhr bis 17 Uhr in Fahrtrichtung Karlsruhe voll gesperrt. Die Demonstration richtet sich “gegen die unnötige Vollsperrung von verkehrsrelevanten Knotenpunkten” und wurde von “Die Partei” angemeldet.
Science just gets awesomer every time, they find something new.
The stuff sounds more and more like things out of Fantasy Novels or Marvel Comics.
Next up, they probably find infinity stones or create mithril.
Scientists have developed ways to relatively quickly turn carbon dioxide captured from power plants to a solid for long-term storage.
They tested it at at Iceland’s Hellisheidi Power Plant and within two years, 95 percent of the injected CO2 had turned to mineral – far faster than the 8–12 years originally expected.
They mix it with water and hydrogen sulfide, creating soda-like carbonation, then inject the mixture into porous basalt rocks 400 to 800 meters underground.
“Iceland was a key demonstration. The holy grail is off-shore”
They also want to pull CO2 from the environment.
some guy on HN did the math

Finally found some time to write a draft for news post on i686. Here it is:
Title: i686 is dead, long live i686
Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the
community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture.
The decision means that February ISO will be the last that allows to
install 32 bit Arch Linux. The next 9 months are deprecation period,
during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting
from November 2017, packaging and repository tools will no longer
require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported.
Technically known as aluminum oxynitride, Star Trek fans may be more familiar with the term “transparent aluminum” first proposed by Scotty in the 1986 movie, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. While ALON isn’t quite what Scotty had in mind (it’s not truly a transparent metallic aluminum, but rather a transparent aluminum-based ceramic), it’s pretty darn close.
SpaceX resumed operations since the explosion last september.
Now they can get going with that Mars-Colonization-Plan.
awesome news 😉
