TDyl (862130) writes "A small British company has produced the first "petrol from air" using a revolutionary technology that promises to solve the energy crisis as well as helping to curb global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Air Fuel Synthesis in Stockton-on-Tees has produced five litres of petrol since August when it switched on a small refinery that manufactures gasoline from carbon dioxide and water vapour.
The company hopes that within two years it will build a larger, commercial-scale plant capable of producing a ton of petrol a day. It also plans to produce green aviation fuel to make airline travel more carbon-neutral." Link to Original Source top

TDyl writes "The BBC is reporting that the Japanese asteroid probing Hayabusa container hit the top of the atmosphere just after 13:50 GMT today and scientists are now scouring the Woomera Prohibited Range in Australia to try to locate the capsule.
If anyone notices their blood turning into a rusty powder please inform the authorities immediately.
TDyl writes "I read this story in my local rag which hasn't published it on their website yet. Last year Higgs was found guilty of selling console mod chips (26 offences under the British Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (2003)). Now the Appeals Court judges have overturned the verdict — they'll give their reasons at a later date — but their decision could set a precedent for the video games industry in Britain, if selling a modcip is not deemed to be illegal."
