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.
I for one, welcome our new ant overlords….

I have never trusted news feeds from social media, and recent evidence has come to light that fake news stories are spread through social media. This article is pretty scary.
Your Comp. teacher was right! Know your sources!
As mentioned in Science Club today. Fun and relatively inexpensive science toys on Amazon.
I think the rash of NASA and space related films the last few years may come from a longing in this country for a time when, as a nation, we had higher priorities. The American Space program was, in my opinion, one of our country’s finest moments, and I’m thrilled we are finally getting around to telling stories like this.”Hidden Figures” tells the story of three African American mathematicians and scientists who worked in the space program. And particularly the story of Katherine Johnson the physicist who calculated flight trajectories for the Mercury program. I love stories of people who helped build something greater than themselves.
Wow! What an effect.
Battlebots is back! If you love machine mayhem, this is the show for you. On Thursdays on ABC at 7 pm EDT.
Still not convinced?

Whaaat? Fear not the Internet has it figured out…
And is back on display at the Smithsonian! This is the original 11 foot-long model used in the 1960’s “Star Trek” TV show.
He was the greatest, and probably the most know sports figure of the 20th century, with the possible exception of Babe Ruth. Certainly, you should know him.
One of my Science Club members William has mad a short survey for NRHS students about interest in Computer Programming classes. If you are a student at NRHS and have an interest in computers and how to make programs (apps) for them, please take a minute and answer these nine questions…
Okay this might bore some of you, but I was interested. Where does the word “weird” come from?
Spoiler Alert: Of course Shakespeare is involved.
