Nice adventure recap!
Nice adventure recap!
After a year absence, I re-created my blog. I'm having a lot of fun with it so far!
What a wonderful idea, glad to have found this one! This site lists the weather forecast in my area for several days, letting folks (myself including) know what the conditions will be for astronomy or just general sky watching. Cool!
The next step in computer evolution? A group of engineers has managed to create an absolutely quiet, high-end PC. How, you might ask? Removing all of fans, of course! But then how do they keep it cool?
Submerge the innards of the computer in non-conductive cooking oil, or course! The thermal properties keep the components nicely cool. It's just a pain to replace a card or hard drive :)
XBox 360 mods. These look hot! A nice one for left-handed folks, as well, that reverses the thumbsticks.
Some very inventive (and fun) sushi presentations!
Rhea and Saturn's rings in the background. It's the DeathStar, I tell you!
Sad :( I was looking forward to seeing him win for a fourth straight year! Goodbye, Sam ... we hardly knew ye!
InfinityGuy led me to this beautiful beast. If I had the mechanical aptitude, I'd love to do something like this as a project!
Thanks for sending me some great motorcycle stumbles!
The Hubble image gallery always takes my breath away. Inside, in a very well-done and ordered gallery, are images that run from the common (pictures of our solar system and nebulae) to the very uncommon (dust rings around black holes).
Despite flatlining earlier, Stephen Hawking recovers enough to give a remote lecture on the original of, well, everything. It's sad how little time this brilliant mind has left.
I don't know if it's real or not. However, he'd sure scare the snot out of our enemies :) I find his "Politics" section very much along the lines of what I believe, as well.
Moondust may be the key to creating large, cheap structures on the moon! Pretty slick!
Is it really cheaper to go completely robotic for the exploration of space as some claim? The latest robot to fail says NO. There is no substitute for a human brain.
Getting closer! The latest VLBA images of our galaxy's core reveal an object, shining in XRays, which has a diameter of around half of Earth's orbit of the Sun, and contains the mass of 40 million suns. While not unquestionable proof of a supermassive black hole at our galaxy's center, it's highly suggestive of this. Further tests with approximately double the current resolution should seal the argument.
Heh. Play with it and it'll catch on fire! Nice flash spoof on the Apple commercials. Anti-religious, so if you're of that persuasion, save yourself some grief and just don't watch it ;)
East African spider found to feed on female mosquitos. I know several locales that should import these little buggers by the truckload!
EXCELLENT series of videos where experimenters pop water balloons in zero gravity!
