The 2014-J25 boulder will hurtle past the planet within 1.1 million miles - less than five times the distance to the moon Earth will have a near-miss with an asteroid as big as the Rock of Gibraltar next week, astronomers claimed. NASA scientists said the gigantic boulder, dubbed 2014-J25, will hurt...
A communications test was performed in 1975 between Stanford and University College London for what was to become arguably the most important communication innovation of the 20th century: The Internet Protocol (IP). At its core, IP was focused on speed and simplicity. This required decentraliza...
