Questions About ISON? Here Are Some Answers: Comet ISON imaged on Nov. 19 with the Marshall Space Flight Center 20″ telescope in New Mexico (NASA/MSFC/MEO/Cameron McCarty) Unless you’ve been living in the Oort Cloud you’ve probably heard about the current travels of comet C/2012 S1 (aka ISON) through the inner solar system. Although this soon-to-be “sungrazing” comet was first spotted by astronomers Vitali Nevski (from Belarus) and Artyom Novichonok (Russia) on Sept. 21, 2012, it’s actually been on its way toward the Sun for much, much longer — possibly for the past several million years or so. But on November 28 at 1:38 p.m. EST, as many Americans are sitting down for their Thanksgiving Day dinners here in the U.S., ISON will make its closest pass around the Sun (called perihelion) and, while you won’t be able to see it in the sky at that point (it’s much too close to the Sun right now) our many eyes in the sky will be watching.

Bowman (communications system) The PRC 355 radio, used at Section/Platoon level as a replacement for the Clansman PRC 351/2 Bowman is the name of the tactical communications system used by the British Armed Forces. Bowman replaced the Clansman series of radios. Robots, AI deserve First Amendment protection. Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images The First Amendment protects the reporter who examines the campaign donations to each U.S. representative and then calculates the open-market value of their votes in Congress. It also covers the artist who paints a mural tying specific state legislators to lax environmental regulations that caused the deaths of children. But what if C-3PO wrote that story? He's “fluent in over 6 million forms of communication”—can the federal government prohibit his speech in all of them?
U.S. Army Sends LEMV Airship on First Flight The U.S. Army sent its Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) on its first flight on Friday. The airship flew for 90 minutes over Lakehurst Naval Air Station. An Incredible Pattern Hidden Inside A Meteorite Last week, I wrote about a wonderfully animated video by Al Boredman . Instead of simply highlighting the great animation, I took the opportunity to whine about some of the buildings that made the cut and some that didn’t. So I was dismayed, but not surprised, when I realized I was one of several people complaining about a fantastic video for a pretty flimsy reason.
