Liquid

Yesterday, NASA revealed that Saturn's moon, Titan, has flowing liquid in a mass roughly the size of Lake Ontario. The discovery of Ontario Lacus, as it's known, was made by the US-European Cassini space probe in December, NASA said. Titan has the rare distinction of being only the second body in the solar system to have something known to be referred to as liquid.



Titan has officially stepped up to the plate and one-upped Mars rather monumentally. There is no clear indication as to what, if anything, NASA intends to do with the liquid.

To the ire of academics and the delight of a science community looking for a poster boy, renegade physicist Garrett Lisi is officially surfing his "Theory of Everything" straight into the (semi-)popular consciousness. Read all about it in the American magazine, New Yorker.

Q: Honestly, how is it even possible that riders, let alone entire teams, are still bothering with this sort of behavior at the Tour de France? Despicable.

an
all-time
classic

Neither maddening rain delays nor the threat of absolute darkness could hamper the classic which unfurled in the suburban London twilight around 9:30 GMT this evening.

It was the truest classic from tennis' greatest rivals and without any conceivable question the best match I've ever seen.
