Serious Addiction WARNING!Blogger and ABC contributor Peter Ryan has a superneat post on a new report confirming what most of us  already knew: Australians are addicted to their smartphones. The survey of smartphone users by tech behemoth Cisco reveals that the daily ritual for Gen Y Aussies kicks off with a quick txt.

Over the next two months, the probes’ 55-kilometre-high orbits will be adjusted to get them into optimal position to measure the pushes and pulls of the moon’s gravity, data that scientists can use to model what is inside the moon. Information on the moon’s interior is a key piece of information still missing despite more than 100 previous missions to the moon, including six human expeditions.
