"Voyager": Who needs astronauts?
On Tuesday, the world will mark the 41st anniversary of the first lunar landing, when American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin hopped, skipped and jumped their way across the surface of the moon. The 1969 touchdown was a historic accomplishment, but as science writer and academic Stephen Pyne points out in his new book, "Voyager: Seeking Newer Worlds in the Third Great Age of Discovery," it wasn't a terribly practical one. We've garnered more useful information over the last few decades, he argues, from our less glamorous unmanned space program than we have from manned flights. Case in point: ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Can I have a pet raccoon? | Ask MetaFilter
I'm wondering if it's really possible to keep a raccoon as a domestic pet. I live in an area where they're fairly common, and I've always thought they were cool little creatures. I know that raccoons aren't domestic in the sense cats and dogs are, but I've also heard stories about people with pet raccoons. I can't find much that's helpful on the internet, so I'm putting the question to you folks. Do people have pet raccoons? How common is this? What are the pitfalls? And no, I haven't taken one in or anything like that. My current living situation makes a pet of any kind ...
