Ask Slashdot: Science Sights To See?
Stanford Linear Accelerator Center
"SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is home to a two-mile linear accelerator—the longest in the world. Originally a particle physics research center, SLAC is now a multipurpose laboratory for astrophysics, photon science, accelerator and particle physics research. Six scientists have been awarded the Nobel Prize for work carried out at SLAC and the future of the laboratory promises to be just as extraordinary."

I Name My Servers After:
When I worked on Yellow Brick Road in Mentor Ohio, I named them from Wizard of Oz places and characters. I use to run a domain called disgruntled-employees.org there was names for my servers like postal , militant, perturbed, discord etc... Naming servers was always genre specific.

The disgraceful interrogation of L.A. school libra
.. LA School districts like their masses unwashed and uneducated , poorly read and empty in the head. Unburdened by the weight of books , philosophy and lofty ideas like thought and the recognition that one is being screwed.
When I was in school, I learned more in the library then in class. the teachers in the class were more interested in the monotone regurgitation of their lesson plan then the underpinnings as to why this works the way it does. I learned that in the library.
If you're going to kill it, open source it!

Sony Rebuilding PlayStation Network Security After Attack
""Sony got hacked but what happened was the hacker left them a dirty little surprise that wasn't caught until well after he was force disconnected. Most companies assume that when they shut out the hacker the attack is over and they patch the hole he used to get in. In this case him leaving something behind wasn't caught and by the time its users started reporting being kicked out his dump had started executing and forcing psn networks to stall out. Not only did this hacker steal information but he left something behind that started erasing and duplicating internally on the servers (hence the reports from users claiming that games were acting out right before the service went down entirely). Chances are by the time sony got to it the damage was too great and therefore they had two options 1. Negate all achievements, purchases, etc and deal with the nightmare of it. 2. Export the db tables for each user and rebuild it's network all over again. Keep in mind Sony just hired almost a dozen i.p. specialist and almost just as many security experts after firing a few over the jailbreak psn masking happened. If they can get psn back up in as little as 7 days it'll be a miracle and chances are you will have lost all of your activity for up to 5 days prior to the initial attack".
This sounds a bit more plausible then any other theory about PSN's outage including AnonOP's attacking Sony.
Personally I am happy to see Sony get raped like it rapes it's customers.
BTW: all of you PSN junkies going through forced detox, you have a few options. Get online with a Wii or Xbox or ....
Try this old game called LIFE , it is a hell of a game, comes with a life subscription , completely interactive and has over 6 billion players. No respawn , no cheats unless it is with a partner that isn't your Sig Other. It has no down time unless you end the game. According to myth , the developer hacked it out in 6 days.
I would rate it 6 stars out of 5.

Cosmonaut Crashed Into Earth 'Crying In Rage'

The gut-wrenching image of Komarov's remains has been around for awhile but does NOT show an open coffin for a state funeral. It shows General Kamanin making all the other cosmonauts file by in the morgue to see what could happen to THEM. The funeral carried an urn of ashes, after cremation was completed. A substantial amount of other remains were later recovered at the crash site and interred there. I got close (tens of miles) to that site a few years ago but was unable to visit it.
