Why Scott Kelly's return to Earth is like an epic bad hangover

They won't actually know for a while: it will take at least a year for Kelly's data to be analyzed, NASA scientists said. Despite the busy schedule, he has had the opportunity to take a dip in his pool and have a family dinner, two things he said he wanted to do as soon as he got back to Earth.

MIT's new 5-atom quantum computer could make today's encryption obsolete

A paper published today in Science describes a five-atom quantum computer that can factor numbers - that is, start with a number and find numbers that, when multiplied, equal that first number. The new quantum computer was able to solve a mathematical problem. With a Massachusetts Institute of Technology team's latest breakthrough, quantum computers are closer than ever to crack systems that rely on classical encryption technology, which is based on factoring, or finding the ...

Astronaut Scott Kelly Sick After Space Mission

Like other astronauts, he got taller in space. But he lost it nearly as soon as he stood on solid ground. Backing away from the vessel, he said, the scope of the mission began to sink in: 340 days on a 15-year-old space station which is "a million pounds, the size of a football field, the internal volume, some say, of a six-bedroom house".

Year long space trip adds inches to your height

But Charles aid it will take many months to analyze all the data from the almost yearlong mission, including samples still aboard the space station that will not get back to Earth until later this year. "I think being able to see the Earth from space is pretty intimidating because you realize how small we are in terms of the rest of the galaxy". We must never stop.

Here's how Street Fighter V quitters are being punished by Capcom

Since last week, they have penalized around 30 players from their system, by docking their League Points. Each player will log in to find their League Points have been docked significantly as a warning. Capcom will continue to monitor those players closely to ensure they don't fall back on their cheating ways, and will continue to do similar sweeps every week of new players caught abusing the system.

Scott Kelly, Researchers Talk One-Year Spaceflight

Above: Kelly took this Aurora pic in August of 2015. He also highlighted the importance of focusing on space exploration. It was "heartbreaking", he said. It took him a full day to get back home from Kazakhstan to Houston. "So this time next year, I'm hopeful we'll start seeing initial results come out from the investigations that were fairly quickly completed and fairly quickly analyzed, and then I look for a constant stream of insights and results from this mission for at least another ...
