plasma stories

Plasma thrusters may very well be the future of space propulsion. They're small, light, reliable, highly efficient, and are mostly powered by electricity. They do also need reaction mass to function, and researchers at the Australian National University have developed a new plasma thruster that runs on almost anything, including astronaut pee.
The thing about enjoying 3D at home is that it really depends greatly on your screen size. The larger your 3D TV is, the better your 3D viewing experience will be, mainly because a bigger screen will create the illusion that you are immersed in the third dimension. Panasonic's gone ahead and added 3D to its too-large-for-most-people 103-inch plasma TV.
