• Dat fold!!! This picture is infinitely fascinating to me. It's so cool that only the top few layers folded and the others stayed horizontal.

  • The Einstein Rings. The Hubble Space Telescope revealed a never-before-seen optical alignment in space. The pattern caused by the bending of light from 2 distant galaxies strung directly behind a forground massive galaxy, like 3 beads on a string.
  • The Earth’s total amount of water is thought to be around 344 million cubic miles. 93% of that water is seawater, meaning it’s too salty for our consumption. 2.5%(9 million cubic miles) is locked below the surface of the Earth & 2%(7 million cubic miles) is frozen in the ice caps. 53,000 cubic miles is in our lakes and rivers, 4,000 cubic miles sits in the atmosphere & 3,400 cubic miles is in all the bodies of living things.

  • This is a close up of Europa’s surface, taken by the Galileo spacecraft in 1998. The cracking in the surface is caused by tectonic activity, a result of tidal stresses from Jupiter. Also, some craters on the surface are caused by meteors, although, Europa is one of the smoothest bodies in the solar system, largely in part due to its high level of tectonic activity. Europa is thought to house a sub-surface ocean & to be one of the best candidates in the solar system for extra terrestrial life.
  • Planetary alignment of Venus, Mercury, and Saturn with the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. This phenomenon only happens once every 2,373-years and the next event is set for December 3, 2012, at one-hour before sunrise.
  • This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover. Freakishly awesome!

  • A new hybrid metal  26 Jul 2011  métal . nano . R    Imagine a metallic alloy, which physical characteristics could be changed as wished only thanks to an electric current. As the armor of Iron Man, this hybrid metal is currently developed at the Hamburg-Harburg University. It goes from a rigid and breaking state to a flexible-like-a-chewing-gum state in an instant. We're talking about metal because it is made out of a noble ore such as gold or platinum and hybrid, because of porous nano-tubes
  • Deep space image taken by the Hubble space telescope. Each speck of light is another galaxy, containing billions of stars. Hubble is now expected to function until at least 2014, when its scientific successor, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), is due to be launched.
  • Organism without a brain creates external memories for navigation    The slime mold, an organism without anything that resembles a nervous system is capable of impressive feats of navigation. It can even link food sources in optimally spaced networks. Now, researchers have shown it's capable of filling its environment with indications of where it has already searched for food, allowing it to

  • The Higgs boson is a hypothetical elementary particle predicted by the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. It belongs to a class of subatomic particles known as bosons, characterized by an integer value of their spin quantum number. The Higgs field is a quantum field with a non-zero value that fills all of space, and explains why fundamental particles such as quarks and electrons have mass. The Higgs boson is an excitation of the Higgs field above its ground state.

Credit: Yie Jang (Yunnan University) An extraordinary find allowing scientists to see through the head of the 'fuxianhuiid' arthropod has revealed one of the earliest evolutionary examples of limbs used for feeding, along with the oldest nervous system to stretch beyond the head in fossil record.
