EO News: NASA Olympics Blue Marble Release; February 6, 2002
Topic: Science 12:47 am EDT, Sep 17, 2004

] This spectacular blue marble image is the
] most detailed true-color image of the entire Earth to
] date. Using a collection of satellite-based observations,
] scientists and visualizers stitched together months of
] observations of the land surface, oceans, sea ice, and
] clouds into a seamless, true-color mosaic of every square
] kilometer (.386 square mile) of our planet. These images
] are freely available to educators, scientists, museums,
] and the public.

NASA Cities Collection
Topic: Science 12:27 am EDT, Sep 17, 2004

] Welcome to the Cities Collection of images. This
] collection hosts the best views of cities around the
] globe as photographed by astronauts while in orbit.

This horribly designed website has a collection of pictures of world cities taken from space. There is a cool picture of Atlanta taken with the tail of the space shuttle in the shot, but denser cities like San Francisco look more interesting from these heights.

MODIS Rapid Response System
Topic: Science 12:02 am EDT, Sep 17, 2004

The MODIS Land Rapid Response system has been developed to provide rapid access to MODIS data globally, with initial emphasis on 250m color composite imagery and active fire data. The experience gained during the Montana fires of 2000, when the MODIS team was asked to provide active fire information to the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), has led to the improvement and automation of several of the steps involved in MODIS rapid data provision.

Very close to what I'm looking for...

The Talk.Origins Archive: Exploring the Creation/Evolution/Intelligent Design Controversy
Topic: Science 10:22 am EDT, Sep 15, 2004

] Talk.Origins is a Usenet newsgroup devoted to the discussion and
] debate of biological and physical origins. Most
] discussions in the newsgroup center on the
] creation/evolution controversy, but other topics of
] discussion include the origin of life, geology,
] biology, catastrophism, cosmology and theology.

This is an encyclopedic resource on theories of creation. Of course, those with particularly strong opinions are unlikely to be interested in reading this. But in certain cases it could be helpful. For example, someone told me a few weeks ago that Darwin renounced his theories on his death bed. Turns out thats not true... (or at least highly unlikely)

Maths holy grail could bring disaster for internet
Topic: Science 10:12 am EDT, Sep  8, 2004

] The plus: the multidimensional topology of space in three
] dimensions will seem simple at last and a million dollar
] reward will be there for the asking. The minus: the
] solver does not claim to have found a solution, he
] doesn't want the reward, and he certainly doesn't want to
] talk to the media.

Rudy Rucker on Boing Boing
Topic: Science 1:27 pm EDT, Aug  8, 2004

] John Walker recently helped me run a little computer
] experiment with me to quantify the word linkiness
] distribution. Rather than wrestling with the vague notion
] of which words suggest which other words, we took an
] electronic dictionary file and decreed that any two words
] are linked if either of the words appears in the
] dictionary definition of the other word.

Rudy Rucker has been doing the sidebar on Boing Boing. The most recent post was kind of interesting.
