stuff from the weekend...
Here's a quick rundown of a couple of Items I noted but never got around to posting over the weekend.
The World's Smallest Website I mentioned earlier has been surpassed--if that's the world--by an even smaller one. (via MetaFilter)
C00L! Scientists believe they have identified a gravitational "superhighway" that runs through the Solar System. If the observations pan out, spacecraft could take advantage of zones where gravity is nearly absent to travel with a much lower energy cost than currently possible. Interplanetary probes currently use the gravity of moons and planets to "slingshot" themselves forward. By contrast, calculations have revealed a complex series of pathways where gravitational forces are in almost total balance, meaning spacecraft would not have to expend enrgy to overcome those forces. NASA scientists have already used these calculations to compute an efficient flight path for its Genesis spacecraft, which collects particals of solar wind. (via MetaFilter)
