Wearing the headset and starting up the application, creates a simplified 3D model of the brain that lights up as brainwaves are detected. This is the first time a smartphone has been used to power the EEG headset. The headset monitors the electrical activity of the brain and is normally intended to connect via USB to a USB receiver plugged into a PC.
NASA‘s Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, or UARS, is expected to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere in late September or early October 2011, almost six years after the end of a productive scientific life.
It is too early to say exactly when UARS will re-enter and what geographic area may be affected, but NASA is watching the satellite closely. Currently it could land anywhere between 57 degrees north and 57 degrees south of the equator – most of the populated world. NASA say the risk to public safety or property is extremely small, approximately just 1 in 3,200.
