TommyBear writes "Since 2000, Folding@Home (FAH) has led to a major jump in the capabilities of molecular simulation. By joining together hundreds of thousands of PCs throughout the world, calculations which were previously considered impossible have now become routine. FAH has targeted the study of of protein folding and protein folding disease, and numerous scientific advances have come from the project.
Now in 2006, we are looking forward to another major advance in capabilities. This advance utilizes the new Cell processor in Sony's PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) to achieve performance previously only possible on supercomputers.
Could this be a sign of some of the Linux OS functionality the PS3 is supposedly shipping with?"
TommyBear writes "An Irish company called Steorn, recently made the claim that they possesed the technology to produce net enery for FREE. Editorial commentary can already be found from various news outlets world-wide.
Apparently not happy with the response of the science community behind closed doors, Steorn have taken it upon themselves to take out a full page ad in the Economist, calling on a Jury of 12 scientists around the world to examine their technology and report their findings to the world.
So far 800+ scientists have answered the call and over 8000+ people have registered to hear the results. Real or more of the quackery that slashdot readers are so used to?"
