Bwoglines: Sci Fi Edition

What we should actually be thinking about when it comes to asteroids.

Fro Sci did talk about this.

Watson and Crick didn’t have the full story, it appears! Scientists at the University of Cambridge have released a new study showing that 4-stranded DNA exists within the human genome. (Fro Sci didn’t prepare me for this!) It is being called the G-quadruplexes, and there is excitement over its potential to aid in cancer research. Only time will tell if this discovery will earn a place of honor among its predecessor in the annals of history. (Yahoo! News)

Deep Space Industries, a company specialized in asteroid mining, has announced that they plan to be operational by 2016. In order to mine the large number of asteroids found near our little green planet, DSI will utilize two different spacecraft known as FireFlies and DragonFlies. They know that there is bound to be some cost involved with all of this, but that’s why they’re hopeful for investors from Google and Redbull. Maybe the spacecrafts of the future will look something like this. (Time)

Nerds everywhere rejoice! It appears as if Star Wars: Episode VII has finally found a director, one that has proven himself among the pantheon of Geek Gods. I’m talking about JJ (Freakin’) Abrams! LucasFilm, which was acquired by Disney last year, solidified the long-standing rumor yesterday on the official Star Wars blog. (Wired)
