How Did They Get That Name? game

 How Did They Get That Name? gameEveryone knows that David Bowie got his name from a Tin Machine song, and that Queen got their name from Freddy's prediction that one day Brian May would play to *the* Queen from the roof of Buckingham palace - but what about other bands. Do you know about Spagna? About psychedielia's The Umbilical Chord? About Whipsnade, the animal Portishead? Do you?

Liquid water discovered on Saturn moon

The orbiting Cassini probe has taken his-res photos of "icy jets and giant water vapor plumes from geysers resembling frozen Old Faithfuls" on one of Saturn's moons, Enceladus. Liquid water discovered on Saturn moon"We have the smoking gun" that proves the existence of water, said Carolyn Porco, a Cassini imaging scientist from the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

If Enceladus does harbor life, it probably consists of microbes or other primitive organisms capable of living in extreme conditions, scientists say.

The findings were published in Friday's issue of the journal Science.

David Morrison, a senior scientist at NASA's Astrobiology Institute, cautioned against rushing to judgment about whether the tiny moon could support life. Scientists generally agree habitats need several ingredients for life to emerge, including water, a stable heat source and the right chemical recipe.

Kircher’s Cat Piano

Athanasius Kircher first described the cat piano in his landmark 1650 work Musurgia Universalis.

In order to raise the spirits of an Italian prince burdened by the cares of his position, a musician created for him a cat piano. The musician selected cats whose natural voices were at different pitches and arranged them in cages side by side, so that when a key on the piano was depressed, a mechanism drove a sharp spike into the appropriate cat’s tail. The result was a melody of meows that became more vigorous as the cats became more desperate. Who could not help but laugh at such music? Thus was the prince raised from his melancholy.
