Share the love!
Our beloved Octokittens have been unfairly malinged for generations and it’s about time we stood up for our tiny little big-eyed arthro-cats. They’ve been slaughtering mosquitoes, manhandling hornets, and even chasing laser pointers around the house for us.

Generating plasma inside a microwave

Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter (others are solid, liquid, and gas) and the most abundant form of matter in the Universe. It is comprised of ionized atoms with either a positive or negative charge and free electrons. 

As the match burns, electrons are torn from their atoms when chemical bonds break within molecules. Normally those electrons would immediately be re-captured to form the byproducts of combustion. However, the energy provided by the microwave radiation causes this cloud of intermediate ions and free electrons to persist in a semi-stable state. The intense light is a result of these high-energy particles losing energy before being re-energized by the microwave. When the microwave is turned off, the plasma will immediately dissipate since it no longer has the requisite energy to exist. 

WARNING: Doing this could damage your microwave! Also, if you're going to record a video of your microwave, please clean it beforehand.

Gone are the days when you have to sacrifice size for speed with an SSD drive in your laptop. At the Flash Memory Summit in California, Samsung just revealed a new 2.5-inch SSD drive with an incredible 16 terabytes of storage. It’s not only the world’s largest SSD—it’s actually now the world’s largest hard drive, period.

This one does involve exotic pressures, still, but every step counts.

Actual peer reviewed papers aren't making "Earth to Moon in four hours" claims.

I love discussions where I learn something new.
