Space Shuttles For Sale 
NASA is planning to raise money by selling off its space shuttles when they stop flying in 2010.

The U.S. space agency is in much need of money in order to produce the next generation Ares rockets, which will attempt to return astronauts to the moon.

And they may raise some funds by selling off their space shuttles, at a cost of at least $42 million.

The advertised price is just the starting figure for any one of the orbiters Discovery, Atlantis or Endeavour, which between them have flown 86 missions into space since 1984.

Included is the minimum $6 million cost of stripping a shuttle of toxic and other hazardous materials, preparing it for travel and flying it to an airport of the buyer's choosing.

Maybe something for your garden?

HP Flexible Display - Cheap and Unbreakable Screen Technology 
In science-fiction and in the movies, display screens are always impressive. Whether it's the giant plasma screen or the holographic projections, things are always visually appealing in fiction. What about in reality? What is the future of display technology? Most probably, something like the prototype handheld flexible displays that HP rolled out a few days ago.

This prototype from HP uses SAIL technology (self-aligned imprint lithography), a process by which a thin film of transistors is sandwiched with an E Ink film. This creates an unbreakable multipurpose plastic display. E Ink is the type of display technology that powers e-book readers like the Amazon Kindle and more recently, the Esquire E Ink cover page.

HP rolled out this prototype with the ASU Flexible Display Center. It's supposed to be unbreakable and uses a low-cost process that's like printing on a sheet of plastic. Apparently these screens use 90% less materials and are still cheap to make. This technology will most likely result in cheap, sharp and colorful flexible displays for future technology. This technology is still very young, but the market for such screens could grow to US$2.8 billion by 2013.

The applications for these types of displays are endless. They can become display screens of cell phones, laptops, computers and other devices. What's really cool is that they could roll up, which is something that is really useful. Large screens could be easily deployed.

Katharina becomes 5 years old 
Time goes fast when you have fun, and Katharina is having fun since 5 years now. She is the big girl now, not only by age but also by size. I measured her the other day and she's now 115 cm tall, that's normally the size of a 7 years old... and next summer she's off to pre-school. Joakim is also a big boy compared to his size of 96 cm, being 2,5 years old, but he still have to wait a while before going to pre-school as well.

Sick x 2 
I was sick for a couple of days and unable to blog at least every other day... Got some temperature and headache and don't know what, not very fun anyway. And when I was finally ok Joakim took by where I finished. Today he was without any temperature again so he will be able to go back to kindergarten and I to work. Don't get sick out there, it's no fun this time of the year... :(

Äntligen snö 
Så kom då snön till slut till ungarnas stora glädje. De var ute en stund i eftermiddags och röjde runt i den 0-gradiga kylan men tyvärr blåste det så mycket att det var inget skönt alls. Dessutom vill man ju inte att de ska bli förkylda eller få lunginflammation eller något annat så var inne igen efter en halvtimme. Men de får säkert leka mer i snön imorgon på lekis...

Tomb Raider 8 - Underworld released today! 
Today the 8th installment of Lara Croft games series Tomb Raider is released. I'm a big Lara fan since back to Tomb Raider II in -97. I played all the games up to Tomb Raider 5 but after that I have had less time to play due to work and family. I have my own screen shot section here but because of the above there are no more updates allthough I wish I could update all games.

Tomb Raider 3 was the one I liked the best, and it has a great Lara rendering. From Tomb Raider 4 she was changed and I didn't like it at all and lost some interest. The first Tomb Raider game is also a great quality game, and the vilian was the best up to date. It's just a pity the graphics back then was not as good as you would like it to be, Lara has breast that could puncture a balloon... The VCI level of Tomb Raider 5 was extremely hard but at the same time probably the level I enjoyed the best.

This new game looks great. Great graphics, interesting story, good-looking Lara rendering (reminds me of TR3) and I have an interest in start playing again. I hope my system is up the hardware requirements of the game once I bought it.
