Q: How many English towns or cities begin with the letter X?













A: You don't know? Never mind, the answer is zilch!
Although I do think points should be awarded for Xeter :)

World Egg Day - Friday, the 10th of October 2014

Image

World Egg Day is celebrated on October 10, 2014. It is celebrated each year on the second Friday in October. World Egg Day is a unique opportunity to help raise awareness of the benefits of eggs. It was introduced by the International Egg Commission in 1996. The main objective of this day of action is to boost the consumption of eggs.

Chicken eggs are widely used in many types of dishes, both sweet and savory, including many baked goods. Some of the most common preparation methods include scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, omelettes and pickled. They can also be eaten raw, though this is not recommended for people who may be especially susceptible to salmonellosis.

Eggs add protein to a person's diet, as well as various other nutrients. As an ingredient, egg yolks are an important emulsifier in the kitchen, and are also used as a thickener in custards. The albumen, or egg white, contains protein, but little or no fat, and can be used in cooking separately from the yolk. (With material from: Wikipedia)

The Philae Lander
Google Doodle November 13, 2014
viewtopic.php?p=110196#p110196

Philae is the landing craft of the Rosetta mission, which touched down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 12 November 2014. The scientific objectives are to determine the physical properties of the comet's surface and subsurface and their chemical, mineralogical and isotopic composition. This information will be used in tandem with the data returned by the Rosetta orbiter to characterize the comet.

Spacecraft and Subsystems
The Philae spacecraft is a partial hexagonal cylinder, approximately 1 meter across and 80 cm high, open on one end, supported on a long squat tripod and consists of a baseplate, experiment platform and hood. The structure is made of high modulus carbonfiber with an aluminum coating in a polygonal sandwich construction. The landing gear consists of a central telescopic tube connecting lift and torque mechanism located in the cavity of the lander's body connected at the lower end by a kardanic joint to the center of the tripod. The three lander legs are equipped with shock absorbers to inhibit bouncing in the low gravity. Push-down and hold-down thrusters are used to accelerate descent and impede rebound after touchdown. Twin harpoons connected to tethers will be fired into the surface of the comet to anchor the lander. Power will be provided by low intensity, low temperature GaAs solar cells mounted on the top panel of the lander hood and a 970 Whr and 110 Whr battery. The lander will communicate with the Rosetta spacecraft via a 1 W S-band transmitter. A flywheel provides 1-axis stabilization during the descent. Total mass of the lander is about 100 kg. Philae will be carried on the side of the Rosetta orbiter until it reaches the comet.
