It's all a part of StationLIFE, an exhibit designed by NASA to show the science, the technology and a bit of the human side of the space station, including almost-real-time data from the station itself.Space Shuttle Enterprise Lands at New York City's Intrepid Museum The StationLIFE feed could be installed anywhere, though one unique thing about the Intrepid display is the use of a projector rather than a typical TV screen, said Mitch Youts, media producer and special projects coordinator at NASA's Johnson Space Center.Typically, he said, the exhibit uses a 55-inch 140 centimeter monitor.A division of the ISS program funds the exhibits, and there are five other installations besides the one at the Intrepid, including one at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and another at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry."Additionally, the displays can utilize an alpha channel for other graphic overlays and things, so each installation can have a customized look, such as a museum logo or something of that nature."This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
The company will let enterprises buy perpetual licenses that aren't tied to specific storage arraysCurrency from different nations.The practice of using software to define all systems and treating hardware as a commodity began in big Internet operations like Facebook and Google but is now becoming more feasible for ordinary companies.SolidFire isn t trying to compete with cloud storage services, but those options have changed the landscape, said Dave Wright, SolidFire s founder, vice president and general manager.This still counts as a capital expenditure, so companies that have been buying storage in one-time purchases don t have to change gears financially.SolidFire isn't saying how much the licenses will cost but says the new purchasing model introduces ways to save money.SolidFire has qualified some third-party gear to run its software, but this approach is best suited to large customers like service providers, Wright said.
Tile, the San Mateo-based startup that sells little Bluetooth-connected trackers to help people find their misplaced items, has raised a further $18 million in a round led by Bessemer Venture Partners, with participation from existing investors GGV Capital, Khosla Ventures, Tandem, and Chinese tech giant Tencent.Founded in 2012, Tile makes little fobs that can be attached to almost anything and work in conjunction with a mobile app to help you find keys, wallets, you name it.It also works in reverse, meaning you can find your phone by pressing a Tile.The company says it has sold more than five million of the $25 devices to date, drummed up $43 million in revenue last year, and is gearing up to double that number in 2016.Mike Farley, cofounder and CEO at Tile, said that the new cash influx will help the company take aggressive steps toward achieving true global scale.It will also open its smart location technology platform to other companies so they can embed in their own wares.Tile is one of a number of companies to receive VC backing for such a device, with the likes of Trackr closing a $8 million round back in October.Smart location is an enormous opportunity and has the potential to become the most valuable application for connected devices,  said Byron Deeter, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners.With powerful network effects, a foothold in retail and a platform that solves the problem of location for other companies, we are confident Tile will win this emerging category.

But above all, Hellboy in Hell has been about the acceptance of endings, that at some point it s time to rest and for a story to come to its close.Things end.It s simple, and stark, and despite some epic moments—empty vistas of the barren Hell, fully maximising Mignola s trademark use of shadow to overwhelm the reader with a sense of emptiness, or a lavish sequence of pages of silent action as Hellboy destroys Beezelbub s stronghold—it s the issue s uneventfulness that makes it melancholic and beautiful.But this is not the end of the comic; instead Mignola takes both us and Hellboy on one last, silent trip throughout Hell, emptied of the damned souls there and the demons Hellboy has vanquished.Despite the ambiguity of it, all the interpretations that you can wring out of these final pages, there s a sense of permanence here in a way that is rarely tangibly felt in comics, where there is always another story to tell, another series to kick off, another death to undo.For a story that has focused on accepting the inevitability of the capital-E-End, it s perfect that Mike Mignola says goodbye to Hellboy with the sound of silence.
That said we all remember Project Christine and how it went exactly nowhere, and so how can Asus' own Project Avalon modular PC concept possibly stand a chance?Behind the coverSure the cubical aluminum Asus co-developed with case designer In-Win isn't not exactly an orthodox case even compared to most Mini ITX systems, however, beneath the shiny metal shell everything you know about PC hardware stays mostly intact.The system uses a unique motherboard that only features a processor socket, interchangeable I/O shields and space for memory DIMMs.You'll find everything else integrated into the five additional printed circuit boards hidden beneath the main motherboard including a PCI-e riser for the GPU.Avalon's project manager explained Avalon's success relies entirely on power supply manufacturers adding a logic board connector.Modular PCs are surprisingly not the craziest thing we've seen at Computex 2016

Golf hazards like sand bunkers and lakes might ruin your day—but one hazard at Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida could end your life.A monstrous, dinosaur-sized alligator has been filmed strolling across Buffalo Creek golf course during an afternoon round of golf.Charles Helms, the man who recorded the now-viral video, brazenly filmed the carnivore from only a few yards away and posted it to his Facebook page.That must be 15-feet long.One of the golf course s worker told local news reporters that the alligator is like a mascot for the course.Let s just hope this mascot stays in a safe zone—far out of the field of play—from now on.
Google's re-implementation of selected Java APIs in Android has been ruled as fair use, but Oracle has stated it plans to appeal.Google has emerged victorious from a legal battle with Oracle that could have seen the company on the hook for $9 billion in damages for alleged copyright infringement within its Android platform.Oracle has been dogging Google's heels for years, claiming that the company breached copyright and patent law when it implemented various Java application programming interfaces APIs in its Android operating system - APIs Oracle held following its acquisition of Sun Microsystems.Agreeing with Google's argument that its re-implementation of the APIs constitutes fair use, the jury has claimed there is no case to answer for the advertising giant.Oracle, naturally, has announced that it isn't giving up and will appeal the ruling: 'We strongly believe that Google developed Android by illegally copying core Java technology to rush into the mobile device market,' general counsel Dorian Daley told press in a prepared statement.'Today's verdict that Android makes fair use of Java APIs represents a win for the Android ecosystem, for the Java programming community, and for software developers who rely on open and free programming languages to build innovative consumer products,' an unnamed spokesperson told eurl http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2016/05/google-wins-trial-against-oracle-as-jury-finds-android-is-fair-use/ Ars Technica eurl via email.
Fruit flies have enormous sperm.This is a well known fact in the scientific community — so well known, in fact, that there s a name for it: the big sperm paradox.A new paper published in Nature, however, has introduced a mighty intriguing explanation.Researchers found a link between the size of the semen receptacle in female fruit flies and the length of sperm in males, which suggests that it s the ladies who are actually calling the evolutionary shots.Specifically, longer sperm are superior at displacing, and resisting displacement by shorter competitor sperm within the semen receptacle, and longer semen receptacles drive sperm-length evolution by enhancing this competitive advantage, the paper reported.Image: Nature Pitnick and his fellow study authors compared fruit fly sperm to other sexually selected traits, like antlers and pheasant tails, but concluded that the sperm was possibly the most extreme ornaments in all of nature .
Computers that need 8in floppy disks as large as your head are still required to communicate with US nuclear forces.A report into the state of the US government, released by congressional investigators, has revealed that the country is spending around $60bn £40.8bn to maintain museum-ready computers, which many do not even know how to operate any more, as their creators retire.We re not even talking the more modern 3.5in floppy disk that millennials might only know as the save icon.We re talking the OG 8in floppy, which was a large floppy square with a magnetic disk inside it.Shockingly, the US Government Accountability Office said: Replacement parts for the system are difficult to find because they are now obsolete.The Pentagon said it was instigating a full replacement of the ancient machines and while the entire upgrade will take longer, the crucial floppy disks should be gone by the end of next year.

Getting better technology from Yahoo would help AT provide businesses with ads delivered over the internet that are better tailored to suit individual viewers interests.In recent years, Yahoo Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer focused on what she saw as the future of digital advertising, including paid promotions tied to mobile, video and social-networking -- along with native advertising, or inserting marketing spots alongside news stories, blog posts and other content.The company spent millions of dollars to stream more live National Hockey League games and has deals with Major League Baseball and the Professional Golfers Association.One piece that could be particularly appealing to AT is Flurry, an analytics and advertising startup that Yahoo bought for about $300 million in 2014.Since the acquisition, the unit has been blended with other Yahoo services -- and spawned the Yahoo Mobile Developer Suite, a set of tools to help developers analyze, grow and make money from their apps.Despite all those e-mail users, sports fans, financial news enthusiasts, search customers and Flickr photo buffs, Yahoo has serious challenges.This year, the Web portal will capture just 1.5 percent of the digital ad market, down from 2.1 percent in 2015, according to EMarketer Inc.Mayer has touted more than 600 million mobile users -- a valuable asset as consumers increasingly access digital services on smartphones and other portable devices, rather than desktop computers.Still, Yahoo has struggled with the transition to mobile, held back by its legacy as a web portal built in the 1990 s when PCs dominated.And for as much as Yahoo has messed up over the years, they are still the third-largest in terms of users, said Roger Entner, an analyst with Recon Analytics LLC.
In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner and marketing expert Ben Angel outlines ways entrepreneurs often lose sight of their customer base -- and how they can bounce back from that."If you're not clear on the brands that your customers follow, how much they spend, which news sites or magazines they read or their purchasing motivations, any attempt to keep your advertising costs low is going to be a stretch -- at best," he says.But unfortunately, he continues, too many people think they can skip this step and dive directly into social-media marketing, thinking they'll get an immediate return on investment.Well, they're wrong.If you've taken a wrong turn in your marketing strategy, watch this video and learn how to leverage online tools and become clear on your audience to get that marketing back on track.Follow These Tips to Persuade the Media.
Yesterday we learned that starting in September, Netflix will become the exclusive streaming home to all things Disney, Marvel, and Lucasfilm.Being a huge Star Wars nerd, it s easy to get hopeful about seeing The Force Awakens show up on my streaming provider of choice.However, that won t be happening any time soon.And The Force Awakens was just shy of that mark.Starz did lose the rights to broadcast films internationally last year, which means that The Force Awakens will show up on Netflix in Canada.It will likely take quite a large sum of money for them to want to give up the rights to such an iconic film.
Amazon itself followed up with its own Dot and Tap devices in March, and Google unveiled Google Home last week.Now it seems that not only is Apple planning a similar device of its own, but it has been at work on it for some time.The device doesn t yet have a name, but would be powered by an enhanced version of Siri, according to a report from The Information.Siri already features integrations with services from companies like Google and Yelp, but these have been fairly limited.While this could seem like Apple jumping on the bandwagon, Siri has obviously been around since the launch of the iPhone 4S, and The Information s sources say that the company has been working on the device since before the launch of the Amazon Echo.WWDC kicks off next month on June 17, with Apple expected to finally introduce Siri for the Mac, as well as a rumored new, improved user interface for Apple Music.
Today, Amazon's Comixology app announced Comixology Unlimited — an all-you-can-eat buffet of digital comic books for $5.99 per month, so you can binge Netflix-style.At launch, the Comixology Unlimited plan includes the first volumes of popular titles like "The Walking Dead," "Attack on Titan," "Saga," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8," among many others.There's even a 30-day free trial, so you can try it on your phone or web browser.A Comixology spokesperson tells Business Insider that this is all about helping readers find an entry point into the medium, with a focus on partnering with publishers to fill the service up with first volumes and introductory storylines."We ll be cycling through content periodically.The goal, it seems, is to provide a cheap way to give readers a taste of the next big thing in comics, and then reel them in to pay for the next books in the series.No matter how you slice it, this is a big huge deal.Absent from the list of participating publishers are Marvel and DC Comics, the two biggest names in comic books: Marvel has its own, separate Digital Unlimited app for $10/month; DC has yet to launch this kind of binge-reading plan.Still, while big-name superheroes like Spider-Man and Batman aren't included in this plan, Comixology Unlimited includes access to lots of independent titles that are more than worth your time.Just off the top of my head, "Locke and Key," "Lumberjanes," and "The Wicked and the Divine" are all incredible, and they're all included in the plan.Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.NOW WATCH: Become a comic book character in a few easy stepsLoading video...
Indeed, in 2013, the number of mobile messages sent via OTT apps exceeded SMS for the first time.There are other ways to send multimedia messages whilst keeping the costs at bay, said the network.Well it hopes to monetise this appetite for data by moving customers onto more expensive tariffs with bigger data allowances.This is its exact rationale behind Feel at Home , its roaming offer which lets its customers use their UK allowances in a number of countries.While this obviously eats into roaming revenue, it does mean customers are more likely to use their phone abroad rather than switch it off or use free Wi-Fi networks.For the operator that says its network is built for data, it makes perfect sense.
Last year, Tesla took aim at one of its key markets: the affluent Hamptons, a strip of town stretched out across the coast of Long Island's South Fork, long a vacation destination for New York City's moneyed elites.The 2015 edition was a "pop-up" store.Adorned with Tesla branding and built from shipping containers, it welcomed potential customers in Southampton for five weeks.The concept was so successful that Tesla is opening a fully blown store in 2016, located in East Hampton Tesla is also opening a vacationer-oriented store in Massachusetts' Cape Cod .But opening in this location comes with inherent risk because many people leave after the summer months.Automotive New reported that the new store would experience a major slackening off in business during the non-summer months, but that Tesla assumes interest from Memorial Day to Labor Day will be strong enough to make the effort pay off.Last year, Tesla offered test drives in the Model S sedan, but wasn't able to sell anyone a car.In New York, Tesla can sell cars to consumers on only a limited basis, using its direct-sales model.Interested buyers can go online after sampling a vehicle and arrange to buy, taking delivery at a later date.The electric-car maker now has an additional vehicle to sell.Last fall, after the Hamptons pop-up location closed, Tesla launched its Model X SUV.SUVs are extremely popular in the Hamptons, where wealthy families journey from New York City to their summer homes.The company is guiding to 80-90,000 deliveries in 2016, and CEO Elon Musk has set an ambitious, accelerated 2018 target of 500,000 vehicle deliveries.The Tesla store in the Hamptons will join a new location in Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood that opening earlier this year.NOW WATCH: Here s Tesla s massive plan to meet the demand for 375,000 Model 3 preordersLoading video...
