Window 10 will be available for Raspberry Pi 2


Earlier today, Raspberry Pi announced a new, powerful version of its Pi 2 Model B+ that still costs $35. Now, Microsoft has also announced that a free version of Windows 10 will be available for Raspberry Pi devices.


A long time coming—and perhaps spurred by the newly powerful hardware—the operating system will be freely available via the Windows Developer Program for IoT later this year. There's now word on whether the version of Windows 10 will be any lighter than other installs, but Microsoft explains that it will be sharing more details soon.

 
Regardless, Windows 10 on a Pi is an exciting prospect, that open up a lot more possibilities for the pint-sized computer. [Microsoft]

New space telescope concept could image objects at far higher resolution than Hubble


University of Colorado Boulder researchers will update NASA officials next week on a revolutionary space telescope concept selected by the agency for study last June that could provide images up to 1,000 times sharper than the Hubble Space Telescope.

Scientists make a Mobius strip of laser light


Möbius strips don't really occur in nature, However, a worldwide team of scientists may have produced the next best thing. They've created a Möbius strip of light by manipulating the polarization of the light's inherent electromagnetic field. The trick involves firing a highly focused laser beam through a liquid crystal lens to give it a very specific polarization. When the light scatters at the focal point with the help of a nanoparticle, that polarization creates tiny, twisted loops. While these strips were made in a lab, of course, the experiment shows that they're at least possible in nature.
