Princeton scientists confirm long-held theory about source of sunshine.  “The findings show that science’s understanding of the chain of nuclear processes that make the sun shine is essentially correct, as least as far as the part of the chain that involves beryllium is concerned ... [snip] ... The reaction does not generate a large percentage of the sun’s energy, but confirming that we understand it makes us more certain that we know how the other processes that create sunlight work.”

Luminous Landscape:

Comments on the new Canon camera releases.  “It is expected that Nikon will announce its almost-full frame D3 some time before the end of August. I won’t speculate on its features, but it is bound to be highly competitive – though lower resolution than the 1Ds MKIII; more of a 1D MKIII competitor.”  My italics. Still not full frame?  Bummer.

Later thought: Can a 5D Mark II be far behind these announcements?

Even later: SportsShooter has more information on a potential upcoming announcement of the Nikon D3, with more specs.
