  1. Apm 08279+5255

    People have, over the decades, wondered where space explorers will find a water source. I know I have anyway. We can all heave a sigh of relief. APM 08279+5255 is a deep-space object with, according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and unless I have the detail wrong, 140 trillion times more...

  5. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict

    This may well be the most succinct and accurate statement of the problem I've ever seen, and I commend the author: [That] any peace plans co-authored by the United States and Israel would be untenable and that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will remain intractable as long as U.S. policy is...
