The Helios Prototype flying wing, part of NASA's Environmental Research Aircraft and Sensor Technology (ERAST) program, uses solar panels to power its 10 electric motors for takeoff and during daylight portions of its planned 20-hour shakedown flight. As sunlight diminishes, Helios will switch to a fuel cell system to continue flight into the night. The takeoff on June 7 sets the stage for a two-day Helios endurance flight in the stratosphere planned for mid-July.

The vehicles were removed from the streets of the capital by U.S. troops. Iraqi doctors and scientists are worried that birth defects and childhood cancers could surge in the aftermath of the latest conflict, not unlike medical problems in southern Iraq after the mildly radioactive munitions were first used in the 1991 Gulf War.

Are you kidding me? I presume that description comes from the AP or Reuters. I know what book they're holding. Its the Koran. A/K/A the instruction manual for killing in the name of a death cult and then blaming it on god. Are journalists that ignorant, or are they trying to protect us from the truth?

Nice job, as always, Johnny. There are many sad things that go on every day in Africa that we rarely hear about: slaughter, child slavery, starvation, just to name a few. In some areas approx. 40% of the households are headed by children as both their parents have died from AIDS, other disease, or some type of massacre.
