Scientists spotted a 'space hurricane' swirling above the magnetic north pole. It was raining charged solar particles.

An illustration of a space hurricane above the North Pole. Qing-He Zhang/Shandong University Scientists confirmed in a new study that they spotted the first-ever space hurricane in August 2014. The storm swirled 125 miles above the magnetic north pole. Instead of dropping water, the space hurricane rained electrons — which can wreak havoc on satellites. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. Typical hurricanes are easy to spot in satellite imagery: Swirling clouds surround...

The Perseverance Rover CPU Has Similar Specs To a Clamshell Ibook From 2001 (slashdot)

An anonymous reader writes: NASA's Perseverence rover, which is currently exploring Mars, has as it's CPU a BAE Systems RAD 750 running at a 200 Mhz and featuring 256 Megabytes of RAM with 2 Gigabytes of storage. This is a radiation hardened version of the PowerPC G3, with specs roughly equivalent to the Clamshell Ibook that Reese Witherspoon used in Legally Blond back in 2001. This follows a tradition of old tech on space rovers — the Sojourner rover which explored Mars in 1997 used an Intel 80...
