Abbott announced today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval and launch of the iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio System. The system acts as the "brain" of the LASIK procedure, generating a high-definition scan that measures and maps irregularities of the eye that may impact vision. From these measurements, the iDesign System creates an accurate and personalized LASIK treatment plan based on the unique "blueprint" of each person’s eyes.
The iDesign System captures more than 1,200 micro readings of the eye, as well as identifying the shape of the cornea, its curvature, how light passes through the eye and pupil diameter under different lighting conditions – all in one, three-second scan that can be used to precisely correct vision.
The development of the sensor technology within the iDesign System was the result of an earlier discovery by Abbott scientists, which NASA used to accurately measure and shape the mirrors in the James Webb Space Telescope to ensure it will transmit high resolution images of deep space back to earth. The telescope is scheduled to launch in 2018.

This Earth Month, MorningStar Farms, a leader in the veggie movement for over 40 years, is spotlighting how eating a diet with more plant-based foods is one of the easiest, most delicious “acts of green” we can do today for a better tomorrow. To spread awareness, MorningStar Farms teamed up with food expert and “Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi to encourage people to take the Veg of Allegiance™. The pledge is simple –eat veggie protein instead of meat, for even just one meal a week, and share your pledge on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #VegAllegiance.

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), with help from The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] and Iridium Communications Inc. [Nasdaq: IRDM], has successfully implemented a new space-based system to monitor Earth’s space environment. Known as the Active Magnetosphere and Planetary Electrodynamics Response Experiment (AMPERE), the system provides real-time magnetic field measurements using commercial satellites as part of a new observation network to forecast weather in space. This is the first step in developing a system that enables 24-hour tracking of Earth's response to supersonic blasts of plasma ejected from the sun at collection rates fast enough to one day enable forecasters to predict space weather effects.

It depicts a video shot from the USA Space Craft in outer space: An object is viwed heading for earth: WHEN SUDDENLY, the object is shot at from an Earth Based Lazer weapon and the object veers away from the shot and then heads back into space; THIS IS A REAL VIDEO! It was because of this very video that NASA no longer allows any live broadcasts to the public on Earth. This video was captured by a free lance viewer as it happened: This one NASA could NOT COVER UP!
