X Rays

September 24, 1985
X-rays on San Diego State outside linebackers Jack Eaton and Brett Faryniarz proved negative, so both are expected to start Saturday night against Colorado State. Eaton has a sprained finger and Faryniarz has a bruised hand. Defensive lineman Mike Stevens will likely play Saturday despite a sprained knee. Stevens is being moved from tackle to noseguard to replace Levi Esene, who suffered a dislocated elbow last Saturday against UCLA.

Kym Weil, Hart High's ace softball pitcher, will be sidelined indefinitely after she was struck in the left ankle by an errant throw between games of a doubleheader in the Thousand Oaks tournament Saturday. Weil was taken to an area hospital where X-rays proved negative. Weil is 17-1, including Saturday's one-hit, 4-0 win over Camarillo. The Indians beat La Habra, 7-3, in the second game.

IBM researchers have used a new technique called X-ray lithography to manufacture the most densely packed integrated circuits yet produced. Denser circuits mean faster, more powerful and more economical computers. Integrated circuits are now made by coating silicon with a light-sensitive material called a "resist" and shining light on the resist through a template of the desired circuit pattern.

The world of high tech may be expanding at a fantastic rate, but the tools needed to continue that growth must be able to work in ever smaller places. Microchip manufacturers need lithographic equipment that can create much smaller--and thus faster--chips. Biomedical researchers need devices that can work on the smallest scale, even at the level of DNA.

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates fractured his right arm in a fall on an icy step at his home and was treated at Bethesda Naval Medical Center. Gates slipped Tuesday night but decided not to be examined until the next morning when he got to the Defense Department, where he underwent a series of X-rays. He was taken to Bethesda in Maryland. Gates suffered a fracture of his upper right humerus and was fitted with a sling.

The mummy a British Egyptologist says could be the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti is more likely a man, antiquities chief Zahi Hawass said in Cairo. Joann Fletcher, a mummification specialist from the University of York in England, said in June there was a "strong possibility" her team had unearthed Nefertiti from a Luxor tomb. But Hawass said, "I'm sure that this mummy is not a female." Among other things, he said, its hips were very narrow and Nefertiti gave birth six times.

MIT scientists believe they are observing the birth of a millisecond radar pulsar more than 12,000 miles away in the constellation Sagittarius. The star, spotted by NASA's Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer satellite during a monthlong burst of X-rays that began in April, could be a "missing link" in the evolution of stars, they report today in Nature.
