Game Designer Goes to Space
I just read about a game designer, Richard Garriott who will fly to the space station in October as a private tourist via NASA. While there, he will be conducting protein-crystallization experiments for some pharmaceutical companies. It will cost $350,000 to send emails from space to Earth.
Recently, my sister just got me a subscription to The Economist. I've grown to really like their Science section, which is almost like science journals except, not as technical. Some of the more interesting articles that I've read about and bookmarked in Delicious are about science research and citations, salmon farms, neuroeconomics, etc. There are broad subjects ranging from nutrition to different alternatives to designing photovoltaic cells.
