(That works out to a cost of roughly $22 per second he was either strapped in a chair or floating around the ISS checking out the view.)Another possibility quickly comes to mind, however: perhaps the market for $25 million jaunts to a fading space station isn’t what it used to be. Space Adventures also announced an agreement with the FSA to send a private mission to the ISS in 2011.But the next scheduled space tourist after Garriot is Simonyi, who was the fifth space tourist.

Other errors show problems with Google stitching together images from their camera cars.One Street View “game” involves finding glitches in Google’s face blurring algorithm, like blurred out hubcaps, or faces on statues and billboards, like this Walmart ad in Toronto.Universe hates Higgs boson, Chicago CubsBy John Bowman, CBCNews.

quase impossvel se implantar uma indstria tecnolgica de ponta aqui porque trazer bens de capitais so quase impossveis de se chegar (se essa proposta da reduo para 4% passar, pode ser algo mitigador). Produzir no Brasil naturalmente mais caro e algo que no resolvido s com boa vontade do empresariado (que sim, se aproveita disso para criar oligoplios e cobrar margens de lucro fora da realidade. No h bonzinhos).Crony capitalism um problema pesado do Brasil, mas no o nico, nem de longe.
So I’ll show you how to make an easy peasy sunglasses pouch you can proudly show off to your mates, loved ones, and your canine best friend.
