Some interesting science stories..

Two things from the New Scientist newsfeed..

First off is a story that newborn rats given Prozac grow up depressed, although I must say if I’d just been born and found out I was in a lab I’d not be too happy either..

The other is about something I’d heard described at CCGrid 2004 regarding creation of the “National Lambda Rail” network in the US, basically a massive network allowing 40 10 GigE channels over different wavelengths. For SuperComputer geeks like me that translates into “Yummmm….”. 🙂
