Maybe. The Ursula Le Guin one has come out worse - it's till very damp after nearly two days. It's not been sunny enough to dry it outside (and due to our neighbours trees sudden growth spurt we get virtually no sun in our garden anyway) but too warm to have the radiators on. The Arthur C Clarke one is almost dry. Hopefully they should both be readable but they've gone very crinkly.

Thought this was interesting: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/201 ... -explained

Although, it seems that no one over at NASA has seen this:

Nostalgic for the days when we still had nine planets? They may be back!

Impossible space drive update!

Impossible space drive continues to actually work:

But does that mean it continues to be impossible?

Practically, not yet, but conceptually, yes. Even while they're watching it work, they still don't know how it works, or (more significantly) how it could possibly work. I know this all sounds fairly rarefied, but most Anoraks have probably had relationships of the heart which have operated on a similar basis.

Impossible space drive research now peer-reviewed:

Have I got too much riding on this?

I'm very hopeful too but most things I read about it say that it probably won't be true - there's probably some other factor/error in the experiments that they haven't discovered yet.

It would be great if it was true. We just need Elon Musk to get his hands on it so we can all have our own Tesla Spaceships!
