Enceladus, Wellington Airport , Predator/Reaper Cheap Resistance

Enceladus shoots supersonic jets of water
Four supersonic jets of water vapour have been detected within the enormous geyser of gas and dust that spurts from the south polar region of Saturn's icy moon Enceladus.

The observations, made by NASA's Cassini orbiter, add weight to the idea that liquid from a lake not too far beneath the satellite's surface is erupting through warm cracks to form the giant plume.
Orange stains near the fissures indicate organic chemistry
nature


The United Nations Climate Change Conference begins in Poznan', Poland, on 1 December


I hope that Wellington Airport will have some sort of 50th anniversary celebration in 2009
I recall the 1959 opening air-show. a Canberra and a Vampire, and was that a super-sabre flyover?
A marvelous day for a boy with an airfix fixation.

aaa

The Vulcan tried to use all the runway, hit the South end, sped of to land at Ohakea. The 2 wheel-dents in the berm at the
South end of the runway were still visible years later.

Rumour has it that WgtnAiport (formerly Rongatai) is run by curmudgeons. Still Its hard to believe they wont celebrate the 50


Predator/Reaper Cheap Resistance
http://www.defense-update.com/images_new1/reaper_afgan.jpg

These are slow aircraft, ought to be easy to cripple with old AA guns, or simple frag rockets.
To get a Bearing/Range:
Try: Clip the inertial sensors from a WII game unit and a GPS chip onto a pair of Binoculars.
This would give you a bearing on a target.
Range could be estimated with a sensor on the zoom with a simple reticle - Zoom until the predator/reaper fits a known width on the reticle.
Or use a laser range finder, these birds fly low.

Instead of binoculars, video on power gimballed 90cm telescopes could be used, somewhat more expensive to use a Meade
A cell phone or radio chip, or optical fibre land line if you are Hezbollah, could report the observations of dozens of observers.

or a Questar, for 60s high-tech nostalgea freaks:aaa
