Human Powered Helicopter Flies for 40 Seconds

Quantum Levitation

A robotic arm being able to flip a pancake is impressive, but a robotic arm learning and failing to flip a pancake is hilarious

As soon as it could actively analyze the pancake’s movement, it performed remarkably well. It’s interesting, because humans who tried flipping blind would most likely encounter the same initial results as the arm.

Home school out.

Antarctic Glacier’s Blood-Red Waterfall

My buddy Greg posted this on Facebook earlier today. No, this is not the blood of thousands of clubbed seals.

Roughly 2 million years ago, the Taylor Glacier sealed beneath it a small body of water which contained an ancient community of microbes. Trapped below a thick layer of ice, they have remained there ever since, isolated inside a natural time capsule. Evolving independently of the rest of the living world, these microbes exist without heat, light, or oxygen, and are essentially the definition of “primordial ooze.” The trapped lake has very high salinity and is rich in iron, which gives the waterfall its red color. A fissure in the glacier allows the subglacial lake to flow out, forming the falls without contaminating the ecosystem within.

Dr Zeus and The Masters of Lightning

Dr. Zeus (Terry Blake) & The Masters of Lightning (Steve Ward and Jeff Larson) use the Tesla Coils to set balloons on fire. I would love to see something like this live.

Thanks to Derek for the video!

New Deep Sea Creatures Discovered

These creatures were filmed in the deep sea between 1000/5000 meters deep and most of them are completely new species discovered with a new submarine which was used for the first time to make this documentary.

Definitely looks better in High Quality.
