The Laser Turns 50

Fifty years ago Sunday, Hughes Labs researcher Theodore Maiman changed the world when he built the first working laser. Today, lasers can be found almost everywhere and are integral in many industries, from information technology (fiber optic networks) to health care (LASIK eye surgery) to home entertainment (CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs). In fact, it is estimated that half of America's gross domestic product is somehow connected to lasers. More at InsideScience.org.

Meet the Nano-Spiders

Researchers at New York's Columbia University have created a molecular robot, dubbed a 'spider,' that can crawl along DNA molecules. The spider bot measures a mere four nanometers across -- 100,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Such microscopic devices could one day be used to clear clogged human arteries or build computer components. More at Mail Online.

More on the story, including video of the fireball from a number of different angles, at CNN.com.

Amateur aerospace photographer Robert Harrison has captured amazing pictures of Earth using a digital camera, weather balloon, GPS locator, and some duct tape. The $750 device can travel to an altitude of more than 20 miles, where the balloon pops (because of air pressure) and sends the camera parachuting back to the surface. Harrison's images are so spectacular that NASA has reportedly been in contact with him. More from ABC News.
