    I'm kind of geeky about science, and not long ago Chris the bastard suggested I start a science thread.
    Here's the first entry: Prosthetics eye that really see.

    Rejoice! Actually, was reading that this morning. Pretty amazing shit.

    It's amazing they could be that close to giving sight to blind humans and, yet, they have not yet gotten funding for clinical trials. I would think that would be a no-brainer for the medical industry.

    There's more profit to be made in treatments, not cures.

    My wife subscribed to Popular Mechanics for the kids and I love flipping through it every month. Amazing how much is outside the day to day mainstream.

    Very cool time to be alive.

    Plenty of candidates out there.

    And as long as we're keeping our eyes on the skies, you can catch a glimpse of Apophis -- named for the Egyptian god of death and darkness -- tomorrow night.

    At the risk of contradicting the thread title, this science is the opposite of cool. It's getting so hot in Australia -- 52 degrees Celsius (129 F) -- that they're having to add new colors to the temperature maps.
