University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.

An interesting read if only for the care and detail that went into the package itself. The package was received by the admissions department and reportedly almost thrown out until a student worker made the discovery. Could this be some new viral marketing in the making or a student with a really unique application package? Who knows - but either way, this is pretty neat.

The massive, hot star seemed out of place when astronomers first spotted it in 2006, and now thanks to Hubble, we know why. The misfit, 30 Dor #016, appears to have been ejected from a cluster of even heftier stars, pinging off of them and off into space at tremendous speed.

Microsoft sends out press invitations for mystery event on April 12.Microsoft sends out press invitations for mystery event on April 12.

Microsoft seems to be a little tired of Apple hogging all the spotlight these days. The only information on the invite is something vague about it being 'time to share'. Hold on to your hats and/or excitement - whichever comes first.
