Researchers in Spain have found that drinking moderate amounts of alcohol — especially wine — was linked with a lower risk of depression.
Older men and women who consumed two to seven small glasses of wine weekly were 32 percent less likely to suffer from depression compared with people who never drank alcohol, the study revealed.

Radar Images obtained Aug 8, 2013 of Asteroid 2005 WK4. The Asteroid is 660-980 feet/200-300 meters across.
NASA scientists captured detailed radar views of a huge asteroid as it whizzed by Earth earlier this month.
The new radar images show the asteroid 2005 WK4 as it passed Earth on Aug. 8 at a safe distance of 1.93 million miles (3.1 million kilometers), which is about 8.2 times the distance between Earth and the moon. The images revealed the large asteroid to be between 660 and 980 feet across (200 to 300 meters), NASA officials explained in a statement.
NASA captured the asteroid images by using the agency's Space Network antenna in Goldstone, Calif., a 230-foot (70 m) antenna that can be used to conduct radar astronomy as well as track spacecraft in deep space.

The concept of a time machine typically conjures up images of an implausible plot device used in a few too many science-fiction storylines. But according to Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which explains how gravity operates in the universe, real-life time travel isn't just a vague fantasy.
Traveling forward in time is an uncontroversial possibility, according to Einstein's theory. In fact, physicists have been able to send tiny particles called muons, which are similar to electrons, forward in time by manipulating the gravity around them. That's not to say the technology... Read More
