BUSINESS LINE - Mars missing most of its atmosphere: NASA, Apr 9, 2013

 "WASHINGTON, APRIL 9:   Mars may have lost much of its original atmosphere, but the remaining atmosphere on the Red planet is still quite active, findings from NASA’s Curiosity rover indicate. Evidence has strengthened this that Mars lost much of its original atmosphere by a process of gas escaping from the top of the atmosphere, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California, said in a statement. Curiosity’s Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument analysed an atmosphere sample last week using a process that concentrates selected gases. The results provided the most precise measurements ever made of isotopes of argon in the Martian atmosphere. “We found arguably the clearest and most robust signature of atmospheric loss on Mars,” said Sushil Atreya, a SAM co-investigator at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor."

BBC News - Margaret Thatcher: An inspiration to artists?, Apr 09, 2013

Margaret Thatcher
 "We see an elderly and confused Baroness Thatcher in an inner-city supermarket, circa 2011. She is buying a carton of milk. As she walks toward the counter, a brash, middle-aged businessman rudely cuts in front of her. He is on the phone, haggling over a deal, oblivious to his surroundings. As he leaves and she takes her place at the counter, a young man in a rush queues behind her. "

PERTH NOW - Japan deploys Patriot missile interceptors around Tokyo to counter North Korean nuclear threat, Apr 09, 2013

Japan North Korea
"JAPAN has announced it is deploying Patriot missile interceptors around Tokyo as a precaution against North Korea's nuclear threats. Share on email Share on twitter Share on facebook Share on google_plusone_share Share on linkedin The Patriot missiles - an advanced version of the interceptor of Gulf War fame - are being moved to key locations around Japan's capital city, including the defense ministry headquarters. Other key military bases on the Japanese mainland are also taking similar precautionary measures, reports indicate. Japan's defense minister has also reportedly put destroyers with missile interception systems on alert in the Sea of Japan. Japan purchased the PAC-3 version of the Patriot missile launchers from the United States during the past decade to face just such a threat. While it has never attempted to shoot down North Korean ballistic missile tests which passed over its territory in the past, the military deployment suggests Japan is not taking any risks ahead of a possible missile launch by the rogue state."

THE GUARDIAN - Margaret Thatcher: tributes pour in for groundbreaking but divisive leader, Apr 09, 2013

Margaret Thatcher in 1982.
 "Lady Thatcher, Britain's first female prime minister and among the most influential and divisive political leaders the country has ever seen, died on Monday at the age of 87 after suffering a severe stroke. The former Conservative leader had been in ill health for more than a decade, and was staying in a suite at the Ritz hotel in London while recuperating from a minor operation. David Cameron, who was in Madrid on a European tour, immediately returned to Britain to announce parliament was being recalled from its Easter recess, describing her as Britain's "patriot prime minister"."

MARS` atmosphere thinning but still active, Apr 09, 2013

Mars` atmosphere thinning but still active
"Washington: Recent findings from NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity indicate Mars has lost much of its original atmosphere, but what’s left remains quite active. Evidence has strengthened this month that Mars lost much of its original atmosphere by a process of gas escaping from the top of the atmosphere. Curiosity’s Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument analyzed an atmosphere sample last week using a process that concentrates selected gases. The results provided the most precise measurements ever made of isotopes of argon in the Martian atmosphere. Isotopes are variants of the same element with different atomic weights. “We found arguably the clearest and most robust signature of atmospheric loss on Mars,” said Sushil Atreya, a SAM co-investigator at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

AAJ NEWS - US Navy readies ‘laser attack’ weapon in 2014, Apr 09, 2013


 "WASHINGTON- The US Navy said it is preparing to roll out a sea-based laser weapon capable of disabling small enemy vessels and shooting down surveillance drones. The laser system will be deployed in 2014, two years ahead of schedule, aboard the USS Ponce, an amphibious transport ship retrofitted as a waterborne staging base, the Navy said Monday. Chief of Naval Research Admiral Matthew Klunder said the cost of one blast of “directed energy” could be less than $1. “Compare that to the hundreds of thousands of dollars it costs to fire a missile, and you can begin to see the merits of this capability,” he said in a US Navy statement. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) and Naval Sea Systems Command successfully tested high-energy lasers against a moving target ship and a remotely piloted drone. “The future is here,” ONR official Peter Morrision said. “The solid-state laser is a big step forward to revolutionizing modern warfare with directed energy, just as gunpowder did in the era of knives and swords.”"
