The National Aeronautics and Space Administration destroyed an unmanned rocket 27 seconds into its ascent during an early-morning launching from Wallops Island, Va. The experimental rocket, made by Alliant Techsystems, had veered off course and was destroyed at an altitude of 11,000 to 12,000 feet. No injuries were reported on the ground, and NASA officials said they believed the debris had fallen into the Atlantic Ocean.
Unlike the cruel and unusual punishment of the cat o'nine tails, this cute cat o' four ears is nothing to be afraid of.
Killing cancer cells, while leaving normal tissue unscathed, is almost impossible.
Nanotechnology may do the trick, but big pharmaceutical companies are far from embracing that strategy. In the meantime, highly-engineered biological molecules will fill the void.
Antibodies can recognize cancer cells, and latch onto them, but they won't kill their targets without some help.
A five-year-old girl shot her 18-month-old brother in the head with an airgun in what police said was a "tragic accident".
Attacks in the wild are under way against Linux systems with compromised SSH keys, the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team is warning.
The attacks appear to use stolen SSH keys to take hold of a targeted machine and then gain root access by exploiting weaknesses in the kernel. The attacks then install a rootkit known as Phalanx2, which scours the newly infected system for additional SSH keys. There's a viral aspect to this attack. As new SSH keys are stolen, new machines are potentially vulnerable to attack.
Two “modern day Ninjas” calling themselves Shinobi Warriors on a quest to rid the area of drug users and drug dealers have been put out of business by police.

I admit it, even I was skeptical. When I received the first demonstration of the Silverlight plugin and the NBCOlympics.com web site back in March of this year at the 2008 Microsoft Technology Summit, where a group of Open Source experts gathered from around the world were asked for feedback on various aspects of Microsoft’s emerging technologies, I truly believed that when they finally rolled that website out, that NBC was going to be overwhelmed with traffic and the site would come to a screeching halt, resulting in a catastrophic embarrassment for Microsoft and NBC.
Trying to reap the health benefits of exercise? Forget treadmills and spin classes, researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies may have found a way around the sweat and pain. They identified two signaling pathways that are activated in response to exercise and converge to dramatically increase endurance.
