13-Year-Old Uses Fibonacci Sequence For Solar Power Breakthrough

jyak Re:He just used more solar cells (410 comments)

I understand what was quoted, but it doesn't match what I see. Also, 10 PV cells at 0.5V will have a max voltage of 5V. So how did the tree output 5.25 Volts? Certainly, he had to have more cells on the tree.

Shiny New Space Fence To Monitor Orbiting Junk

jyak Concept Design Competition (76 comments)

http://www.lockheedmartin.com/news/press_releases/2009/063009_LM_AirForce_SpaceFence.html

Actually, after searching google news, no article paints the complete picture with awards going to all three competitors, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon.

Just because an application can be called a powerful e-commerce solution and the commerce site is considered secure by VeriSign, etc, doesn't mean that the application is not flawed."
