I've been reading a little about that in the past few days. Mind blowing if it's true, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was a mistake somewhere. They've released all their data rather than go for peer reviews so if there has been a mistake made, there are thousands of people working on it. Pretty cool and goes to show the scope of what this could mean

Definitely mind-blowing if it's true but I don't believe it at this stage. "More groundbreaking than radioactivity"?

That "astronomy picture a day" page is so great. I do check it every day. Beautiful photos. Hard to believe that in today's shot they're showing "young" stars that are ONLY a million years old.

I thought that this was quite funny. Not sure where to put this, but I suppose this is the appropriate place.

Dr Quantum - Double Slit Experiment - YouTube
This is kind of annoyingly cheerful, I suppose, but it will blow your mind if you don't know anything about quantum physics (which I didn't)

This might be one of the most gorgeous Earth video I've seen. Really puts everything into perspective.
This Astounding Orbital Time Lapse Will Blow Your Brains Out in Space

I've always been amazed by (usually when I'm in an airplane, but this video illustrates it nicely) how much the Earth's topography still dictates the way we live. As a race, we like to think we've conquered the Earth to some extent, but just looking at how densely we populate around bodies of water or how insignificant a road looks cutting through a large forested area, you really get a sense of who is still in charge.

I missed this when you posted it (I might've posted it on the first few pages), but the double slit experiment always blows my mind. Dr Quantum is about the only good thing that came out of that piece of shit 'documentary' it came from though

I came across this by chance on twitter. Completely awesome.

I want to watch that on an IMAX screen.


The example that I am always reminded of when looking at the Earth is that if you were to take a globe and brush a coat of varnish on it, that would be the equivalent thin layer of our Earth and atmosphere in which humans can naturally and safely exist.
