- China’s testing out an all-3D TV channel. Remember when I said that 3D-TV was going to be getting bigger and bigger outside the US?
- NASA’s GRAIL spacecraft are now orbiting the moon, in an attempt to measure the Moon’s gravity in detail, to give us a better idea of what the Moon’s interior looks like.
- Thailand opened a 5MW solar-thermal power plant, one of fifteen projected to be built using a variant of solar-thermal tech called Solarlite.
- In energy-conservation news: A wall-socket that, after a device has been sitting idle too long, will pop the plug out of the socket. Unusual, but interesting.
- What do you do if you’re a rancher dealing with a really bad drought? Plant drought-resistant alfalfa to use as hay.

- Goodness. The natural world sometimes does very peculiar things. Like blanketing a seaside town in England in foam, which apparently blows in from the sea every so often. What the heck?
