This is scary…
Repair cafes are a new thing in the UK. Sounds like a neat idea. Fix your old stuff rather than throw it away.
His contributions to Physics and his ability to popularize science have secured his place in history, his triumph over motor neuron disease have made him a legend. It is rare that a real human is far more compelling a character than anything fiction could dream up.
Every year students ask me questions about quantum mechanics. And I have to say “It’s weird.” and leave it largely at that. Here’s a good reason why…
If you are interested in this idiot.
Now, he claims to have once launched himself 1,374 feet into the air, which is no small feat. But, their are radio towers and buildings that tall, so I don’t see what he’s going to prove by going up that high.
Spontaneous Human Combustion, is an interesting topic. And while there are some convincing skeptics, there are quite a few of these cases that cannot be explained, no matter how convoluted the explanation.
Well this should be amusing…
What an idiot. Perhaps he doesn’t believe in gravity either. I’m betting he backs out.
UPDATE: Looks like he’s getting ready to back out…
I must admit, I am a bit confused by this whole “flat-earth” thing. How can you disbelieve something that is so easy to prove? Science isn’t a belief system. It’s all evidence based. Belief never enters into it. It doesn’t need to because it’s about proof.
This conversation touches on many of the things I believe personally. What do you think?
You don’t want to ever be this dumb. BTW, this is why I don’t watch QVC.
Odds are Benedict Cumberbatch can’t do a good American accent though.
Yikes, These hair-raising moments are the first video footage from renowned rock climber Alex Honnold’s ascent of the 3,000-foot wall of El Capitan—without a rope. On June 3rd, Honnold became the first person ever to free solo climb this famous rock face at Yosemite National Park, California.
I guess. This has been making the rounds, and it’s both scientifically, and historically accurate, and pretty funny as well.
However, it does contain strong, inappropriate language! Watch at you own risk!
My favorite science fiction TV show is now free to view on the internet. www.go90.com is a website that streams older TV shows and they have the entire run of Babylon 5 online now. This does not seem to include the half dozen TV movies, but that’s okay. The show holds up remarkably well for a 20 year-old show and is worth watching for the amazing performances by Peter Jurasik as Londo and Andreas Katsulas as G’Kar, not to mention the great writting of J. Michael Straczynski.
Wow. If you liked growing crystals for EPS, this guy has a project you might want to try.
He simply was the originator. To me, he was more important than Elvis.
New Congress, and a new threat to online privacy. Seems like we were just fighting about this with the other party.
I mention this when I talk about Pascal. If you like math you’ll love this…
This is pretty neat.
Set off in Zurrieq, Malta late last year. The monster goes off toward the end of the video. Nice show.
I have mentioned this lady every year I have been teaching, as I speak about gravity and terminal velocity. In 1972 a young Serbian stewardess on a Yougoslav airline fell 33,000 feet when the plane was blown up by a bomb. She had no parachute, but survived. She held the record for the highest freefall survival in history.
So long Princess Leia, you had quite a life.
And another American hero passes. Just a really, really good man.
