Hey! Don't step on my head!
 
The stargazers are a family, Uranoscopidae, of perciform fish that have eyes on top of their heads (hence the name). The family includes about 51 species (one extinct) in eight genera, all marine and found worldwide in shallow and deep saltwaters.

In addition to the top-mounted eyes, a stargazer also has a large, upward-facing mouth in a large head. Their usual habit is to bury themselves in sand, and leap upwards to ambush prey (benthic fish and invertebrates) that pass overhead. Some species have a worm-shaped lure growing out of the floors of their mouths, which they can wiggle to attract prey's attention. Both the dorsal and anal fins are relatively long; some lack dorsal spines. Lengths range from 18 up to 90 cm, for the giant stargazer Kathetostoma giganteum.

Learn about how they make for an interesting encounter at the beach in The Daily Catch: http://theterramarproject.org/thedailycatch/beach-goers-receive-creepy-deep-sea-surprise-virginia/

The world's first representation of a true aerial view, from Thomas Baldwin's groundbreaking Airopaidia (1786). The thin black looping line you can see in the image charts the course of his balloon which elevated him to his vantage point.

More here on how late-18th-century balloon flights transformed the way we think of landscape: http://bit.ly/2a97s7J

Ferrofluid and Magnets

Ferrofluid is a liquid that becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field. It is typically composed of ferromagnetic (iron) particles suspended in oil. When exposed to a magnet, the particles align with the surrounding magnetic field. The complex orientation of the ferrofluid reveals the magnetic field around the two magnets.

Wow!
 
The stories these walls could tell… Pueblo Bonito of Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, was estimated to have been built in stages between AD 828 and AD 1126 by ancestral Puebloan people. Covering nearly 3 acres and containing roughly 800 rooms, it was by far the largest structure in the canyon, it also remained the largest piece of architecture in North America up until the 19th century.
