Real Science: Can We Survive On Mars?

One thing that people seem to be overlooking, when they imagine humanity terraforming another planet, is that the operative word is "Terra." We developed adapted to the organic and chemical composition of Earth. Our guts need microflora found only on our own planet.

So how are we going to survive on another planet?

BOOK REVIEW: Which Witch, by Eva Ibbotson

I never was much of a person for hype. It was years before I deigned to read "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" because I could not imagine that the book was as good as people were saying it was. Then one day when I had some time to kill, I picked up a copy at the local library...and pretty much couldn't put it down again until I'd finished reading it. I wasn't just pleasantly surprised, I was blown away, and I'm a person who's read a lot of fantasy stories--J. K. Rowlings did something truly creative and unique, by setting her story about oddball witches and wizards in contemporary England, and making it funny.

Well, it turns out Ms. Rowling may not have been quite so original, after all...
