The Davy Crockett
The Davy Crockett was a setup that was deployed by the U.S. army between 1961 and 1971. It was the lightest bomb ever deployed, weighing in at 51 pounds. It had a variable yield for blasts between .01 kilotons and 1 kiloton. The bomb could be launched between 1.2 and 2.5 miles depending on the launcher. 2,100 weapons were produced for use in Europe against possible Soviet aggression.


Coronal Loop
Fountains of multimillion-degree, electrified gas in the atmosphere of the Sun have revealed the location where the solar atmosphere is heated to temperatures 300 times greater than the Sun's visible surface.

This image is a false color picture of ultraviolet light emitted by the hot gas that comprises the coronal loops. Ultraviolet light is invisible to the human eye, but detectable by the special instruments on board TRACE. White represents the brightest ultraviolet light.


Deus Ex
(pronounced: day-us x)

This has the best storyline of any FPS I have played. This is probably because it is a hybrid FPS - RPG. If it had used the Quake III engine instead of the Unreal Tournament engine, I would hail it as teh best game I have ever played. But, alas, it had too many bugs that the makers were not in a hurry to fix. Don't let my complaining deter you though, it is well worth playing through (bugs and all).
