NASA is going to offer space travel to everyone! “If the armyâ€™s doing it, so can we.” That seems to be the credo that NASAâ€™s adopting these days with the announcement that theyâ€™re looking to venture into the massively-multiplayer online gamespace.
A NASA-based MMO built on a game engine that includes powerful physics capabilities could support accurate in-game experimentation and research. It should simulate real NASA engineering and science missions in a medium that is comfortable and familiar to the majority of students in the United States today. A NASA-based MMO could provide opportunities for students to investigate (science and technology) career paths while participating in engaging game-play.
Weâ€™re talking real-life physics here, so you can throw those arcade space shooters out the window because NASA means serious business. The Newtonian physics used in the Independence War series come to mind right now.
Of course, you canâ€™t make a MMO game set in space without an avatar. Will NASA tolerate aliens and such? It would be boring to go through the whole game as just a human. Also, itâ€™s going to be interesting how the space agency will draw the line between reality and fiction. After all, the final frontier has inspired countless movies and literature. NASA wants to tap that same inspiration and channel it into their spaced-out MMO scene. Any takers? Anyone interested can write their own proposals for NASA!

Love sitting at home and being online? Well, if you are a high-school student in Connecticut, that may be a great thing as you will be able to access courses not even available at your school – like Mandarin, biotechnology and international business – and seemingly for free!
Summer school is one of the most hated terms you can hear nationwide as June starts to roll around. Classes in hot classrooms while your friends are out playing and enjoying their teenage summer.
When you say an “unlocked GSM Phone” does that mean i can use it with any company? I have Cingular so i can just remove the SIM card and an unlocked GSM Phone would work, even if the phone is motorola? (from Whitepimp via YouTube)
Sometimes it is hard to believe that phones really aren’t tied directly into the telephone company – but it’s true! Your account, when using GSM phones, is really tied only to the SIM card itself. The phone is not involved.
So, unlocked GSM phones are just that – not tied to T-Mobile, Cingular/AT&T or any other company to use them. They are generally the actual model produced by the handset company for general sales, not custom made for one of the wireless companies.
Even a pre-paid SIM card (from a pre-paid Cingular/TMobile phone) can go in any of the fanciest phones there are!
