Van Allen Probes Spot an Impenetrable â€¦ rier in Space - NASA 22 hours ago
The ruddy color of Jupiter's Great Red Spot is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet's upper atmosphere, according to a new analysis of data from NASA's Cassini mission. The results contradict the other leading theory for the origin of the spot's striking color -- that the reddish chemicals come from beneath Jupiter's clouds.

Sony saga blends foreign intrigue, star wattage - AP 10 hours ago
It seems like something out of an old episode of Mission Impossible or Inspector Gadgetâ€”an ultra-secure phone that self destructs.
