What vegetables are best for growing in Spaaace?


required title is required

Surely a spacecraft can pick up pre-launched supply canisters while en-route to Mars? Getting a string of supply between Earth-Mars shouldn't be too costly since these would not need to protect humans from high g-forces or carry life-support equipment. Launch a few dozen into space, stick a solar panel on 'em for a simple radio beacon and the cost of feeding astronauts would drop, no need to bring it all in one go.

Having said that, tending to some veggies and plants would surely break the monotony of such a long voyage. Now the question becomes can they grow hop and barley and make the first space brew?

Three-way fight for Real's iPhone-Rhapsody application


Get real

The vast majority of iPhone users do not know about any "problems" with app store rejections, nor do they care. Despite what tech sites imply there doesn't seem to be any negative effect on Apple's sales because of the whole app store fracas.

As an anoymous coward posted before I would also hazard a guess that the vast majority of iPhone users haven't got a clue about what Rhapsody is and if they do find out most of them will wonder why they would want it as the ipod application is already fully functional for playing the music they already bought and paid for.

Any speculation on whether Apple will approve this app are just that, speculation, and do not really merit a seperate article at all.
