    Heads roll in Russia as more details emerge of Total crash

    Top Russian airport officials quit on Thursday as more employees were detained over the Moscow plane crash that killed the CEO of French oil giant Total. The driver of the snowplough that collided with Total boss Christophe de Margerie's plane as it was taking off from Moscow's Vnukovo airport late Monday was also ordered to be held for two months behind bars for further questioning. "The investigation suggests that these people did not respect the norms of flight security and ground operations, which led to the tragedy," said the powerful Investigative Committee in charge of the probe. Vnukovo airport also said its general director and his deputy had resigned "due to the tragic event" after the management was accused of "criminal negligence" by investigators.

    Earth hit by double asteroids 458 million years ago

    Some 458 million years ago, Earth was whacked in a double asteroid strike, leaving craters visible in Sweden today, space scientists reported on Thursday. The event, they said, can be traced to "one of the largest cosmic catastrophes" in the history of the Solar System -- a mighty collision in the asteroid belt around 12 million years earlier. With uplift of the Earth's crust, the signature of that event lies in central Sweden -- the 7.5-km Lockne crater, located around 20 kms south of the city of Oestersund, and a 700-metre (yard) crater at nearby Malingen. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, backs long-standing suspicions that these craters, just 16 kms apart, were caused by a "doublet", an extremely rare double whammy caused by asteroids travelling in pairs.

    Here’s what you can do with an NFC chip implanted in your hand

    Over the past few years, the Internet of Things has become a major topic of conversation in the world of technology. Within the next decade or so, everything in our homes might be connected to the Internet, from our phones and televisions to our kitchen appliances and our smoke detectors. Before too long, we may even connect ourselves to this ever-expanding network, as Robert Nelson recently did. Writing for Connectedly, Nelson explains why he decided to inject an NFC chip into his left hand, and the subsequent effects of latent connectivity. The process of acquiring an injectable NFC chip is surprisingly simple: direct your browser to the Dangerous Things website, pay $99 for a 13.56MHz ISO14443A & NFC Type 2 NTAG216 RFID
