SpaceInvaders

Space Invaders

Here’s another great video arcade game from the late 70s early 80s.

You may need to adjust your browser window size for it to fit right (otherwise you have way too much “duck and cover” space on a wide screen monitor). Then click “Instructions” for how to play. FYI – I wasn’t able to start a new game without refreshing the screen. (sorry, no sound)

Empty Space

All Stretched Out

DNA, located in the nucleus of each cell in hyour body is an extremely efficient data storage medium. Just 4 oz. of DNA could store all the information in the world (scientists are now working on computers that will actually use DNA to store data rather than conventional hard drives).

So how much DNA do you have in your body? If you could line up each strand, end to end, how far would it reach?
