From The Resonance Project: It’s a challenge to even perceive how big “big” really is. Hopefully this meme helps you to realize how large our local environment is. The galaxy may seem huge, but its only a speck in Laniakea, our local supercluster of galaxies… http://resonance.is/
From memolition.com: Magnets are not attracted to copper, but incredibly strong magnets interact with copper in a pretty amazing way. If you drop a neodymium magnet down through a copper pipe it’s descent is slowed. The stronger the magnet and the thicker the pipe, the slower the fall. Take a look. This is an excellent demonstration […]

I shall propose a theory, which will have any and every mathematician or scientist worth his or her salt wearily shaking their heads, to their detriment, of course…: I propose that straight lines are antithesis to nature and that what we perceive as such are parts of an enormously long curve, because nature can not […]

From http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/07/130710062240.htm July 10, 2013 — Scientists have observed in unprecedented detail the birth of a massive star within a dark cloud core about 10,000 light years from Earth. The team used the new ALMA (Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array) telescope in Chile — the most powerful radio telescope in the world — to view the […]

From I fucking love science : Here’s a striking view of Sarychev Volcano in the Kuril Islands, Russia going through its early stage of eruption, taken from the orbit of the International Space Station in June 2009.
They’re thingamejigging all by themselves! Can you tell how scientific-minded I am?
Fair is foul and foul is fair, hover through the thick and filthy… water!!???
Isn’t it? Or is it? They have eyes, but they do not see… Where are my heat-sensors? My coffee mug just turned infrared! see more Dropping The Science
Look at those colours… From Science.Memebase.com And what about all those stars? There could be little Joes or Janes living anywhere in there!!! Or Glurckles, maybe Strontles? My neighbour John just remarked that Orion may actually not be a nebula. He’s lying, because it’s been a while since I last cleaned my glasses and if […]
I have been struggling with the notion of an alternate arithmetic for a while now, but once again, I am stumped. Let me start simple and try to not confuse myself: One and zero are just conventions, starting from the on/off principle. There are other ways of looking at nature. How about the power of […]

Dallas scientists have created a new device, which can render objects behind it invisible, using nano carbon tubes to bend light rays. See the video! The Obama administration is planning to use this technique to hide the state of the US economy from the eyes of the world! All hail technology!! Of course, in Europe […]
