 ESA Science & Technology: Publications
The science requirements of XEUS are particularly demanding, combining a large effective area (10m2 at 1 keV), moderate angular resolution (5" requirement, with a goal of 2"), and a low mass for the optics system.
The identification of the key technologies to be developed is one of the drivers for the early mission design studies, and in the case of XEUS this has led to the development of a novel approach to building X-ray optics for ambitious future high-energy astrophysics missions.
ESA's Science Payload and Advanced Concepts Office (SCI-A) has recently introduced the Technology Reference Studies (TRS) as a technology development tool to provide a focus for the development of strategically important technologies that are of likely relevance for future scientific missions.

 Creation Science, Chromosome Count
In one article on Kent Hovind's website, Creation Science Evangelism, he argues that chromosomes are an indicator of the complexity of an organism.
Such an argument does not stem from the science itself, but from simplistic thinking on the part of Hovind.
Chromosome counts have little to do with complexity, neither is there any part of evolutionary theory that claims that increased chromosome count equals increased complexity.

Unable to account otherwise for this agreement, they were led to regard mathematics as the study of ultimate, eternal reality, immanent in nature and the universe, rather than as a branch of logic or a tool of science and technology" (Boyer 1949:1).
Consequently, when the Pythagoreans developed the theory of geometric magnitudes, by which they were able to compare two surfaces' ratio, they were led, for lack of a system which could handle irrational numbers, to the 'incommensurability problem': Applying the side of a square to the diagonal, no common rational measure is discoverable.
About 260 bce, Archimedes of Syracuse contributed numerous advances to science including the principle that a body immersed in fluid is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the displaced fluid and the calculation of the value of

All of the papers, but particularly those of David Levy and Peter Hirtle, raise important issues that are relevant to the topic of this article.

These other works provide important additional viewpoints that are not fully integrated into this paper and I urge the reader to explore them.

Important point: Be sure to point out to your students that crime scene science is largely historical science, not the classical experimental science typically presented as if it were the only form of science.
Fields in which historical science is used extensively include paleontology, astronomy, geology, evolution science, and forensic science.
This is very useful and legitimate science where events cannot be repeated, so we look for clues and patterns, leading to hypotheses about which predictions can be made, and we then look for evidence to check the predictions.

I have come to believe that it is and, in so doing, join with Albert Einstein: "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." I will address this issue first with the views of others and finally with a single apparent fact from the fossil record.
