All right, conspiracy fans, you were right, well, sort of. For the first time, the U.S. government has publicly acknowledged that it has a facility called "Area 51" in Nevada near Groom Lake, about 80 miles northwest of Las Vegas. But the site served as a proving ground for the U-2 spy plane, and not a secret storage room for aliens and spaceships, as has long been maintained by conspiracy groups. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/a2f7

Warp-drive technology, a form of "faster than light" travel popularized by TV's "Star Trek," could be bolstered by the physics of quantum thrusters, another science-fiction idea made plausible by modern science. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/ad3f NASA scientists are performing experiments that could help make warp drive a possibility sometime in the future from a lab built for the Apollo program at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Female astronauts are career limited by the current lifetime radiation exposure restrictions for astronauts enforced by NASA, astronauts say. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/arwi While the level of risk allowed for both men and women in space is the same, women have a lower threshold for space radiation exposure than men, according to physiological models used by NASA.
