Is that the right video?

Sorry, I failed to copy what I thought I'd copied. Fixed now.

It's quite easy to kill cancer cells. You can even kill them by putting them in water. Not killing the patient is the real tricky part.

Nice!

That image is weird. Did someone stumble upon that in the far reaches of the desert?

The military will probably use this technology to create death rays. But it's still great that scientists are getting closer to cancer treatment without side effects. (I thought all the hope was with nanobots.)

Nice shootin', Tex!

Is that cancer, or it just me?

One of the things Conakry have been doing for years is drawing finger and finger lines to pack more transitors onto each chip.

I wonder how much crossover the is between these two applications/technologies.

I suspect a lot.

The picture is cool. In Ann's smaller version, I see a climber attacking an icey col on everest.

When I interviewed at Micron in Boise for a job, I was told they were so good a memory chip design because the local engineers grew up plowing fields as kids, and running a harrow efficiently in a field wasn't actually that different from packing transistors on a chip.

I, for one, enjoy the personal touches designers put on chips, such as using the rare bits of unusable space for personal touches like an added cartoon character, or other whimsy.

The problem isn't killing cancer but avoiding killing surrounding things too, including in front and in back. The mathematical geometric approach is beams from many directions at below fatal levels adding at the cancer cell to fatal levels.

According to the article, that particular melanoma cell was lying on a silicone base. It's a very Star Wars vibe, isn't it?
