Liu Yang, China’s first-ever female astronaut, had a night shift on Shenzhou 9 a couple of days ago – which is apparently sort of dull in space too, because she entertained herself by going through some Tai Chi exercises.

Defence contractor, Pegasus Global Holdings is building a replica of Rock Hill, a South Carolina city, in the middle of the New Mexico desert as a testing ground for futuristic infrastructures – self-driving cars, green buildings and next-generation Wi-Fi. It’ll be an uninhabited laboratory – they’re calling it “an amusement park for scientists.”
You guys have heard of Kickstarter – that site that lets people pitch their projects for funding to the internet at large, and which has led to new apps, art projects, and a Robocop statue in Detroit.

So it was the Oscars last night, where we got to watch Billy Crystal act smug about being considered relavent by somebody. Also Christopher Plummer finally won something.

Nobody has any idea where they’re planning on getting funding from – but like a kid with an extended birthday wish list, NASA has unveiled some amazing concepts of future, eco-friendly aircraft, which they’re calling “greener flying machines for the year 2025.” Assuming they’re still here then.
Film geeks have unearthed India’s first sci-fi film, Hindi space adventure Trip to Moon, made in 1967. And, since it’s unlikely to take Netflix by storm anytime soon (though I fully expect an American re-make by end 2012) they’ve uploaded it to YouTube in full.

I’m sure the smarter audience out there – both boys and girls alike – will be well aware of the basic joys of having some talcum powder around. Perhaps more traditionally used to combat rash and aid in cut-throat-razor shaves, it is great for your feet when wearing sockless loafers, and equally useful around the nether region on a hot day. The latter being what I wish to talk about today. My point being – Imagine if your talcum powder had a menthol cooling vibe to it as well. Two words – GAME CHANGER. Follow the link – THIS STUFF WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.
