Beautiful and fascinating.
 
Space Station Sensor to Capture 'Striking' Lightning Data - Our researchers developed the Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) aboard the TRMM satellite, which detects and locates lightning over the tropical region of the globe. The team that created this hardware in the mid-1990s built a spare, which is scheduled to launch to the International Space Station in February 2016 in order to take advantage of the orbiting laboratory’s high inclination. LIS measures the amount, rate and radiant energy of global lightning, providing storm-scale resolution, millisecond timing, and high, uniform-detection efficiency -- and it does this without land-ocean bias.

One of the crew members aboard the International Space Station photographed this night view of storm clouds over Southern California. Early morning lightning can be seen as a white blotch just to the right of center. The yellow colored area, beneath the grey clouds, which almost shines because of night lights, is part of the highly populated area of Los Angeles and San Diego.

io9: Dresden Codak creator illustrates each chapter of The Silmarillion. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwrKyz8Q8
While Peter Jackson's vision of Middle Earth may be the dominant one right now, artists have long put their own spin on J.R.R. Tolkien's world. Dresden Codak cartoonist Aaron Diaz shares his own visual interpretation of Tolkien by illustrating each character of The Silmarillion, as well the book's characters and creatures.

Wishing everyone a very happy new year!! I have a great hope that 2014 and all the coming years will be great for humanity in general. There will be more equality in the society, and more love and consideration for each other.

I think the last two points in this list is where the real wisdom lies. You are not going to keep up with anything for any reason if you don't enjoy it (your enjoyment might just come out of the satisfaction of doing it) and nothing can be more deceptive than self-rationalizations.

Self-Discipline in 5 Sentences:

Have a powerful reason — when things get difficult, “because it sounds nice” or “to look good” aren’t going to cut it.

Start tiny, with a simple but unbreakable promise to yourself to do one small thing every single day.

Watch your urges, and learn not to act on childish whims.

Listen to your self-rationalizations, and don’t believe their lying ways.

Enjoy the habit, or you won’t stay with it longer than a week’s worth of sunrises.
By Leo Babauta. Have a powerful reason — when things get difficult, “because it sounds nice” or “to look good” aren't going to cut it. Start tiny, with a simple but unbreakable promise to yourself to do one small thing every single day. Watch your urges, and learn not to act on childish whims.

I am excited about how Google and Google Ventures are investing in the disruptive technologies.

Google Ventures, the search giant's venture capital unit, no longer a Silicon Valley punch line, is shaking up the business.

Success! India's First Mars Probe Is In Orbit And Working

"India has managed to do what few other nations have accomplished: putting a satellite into orbit around another planet — and it did so a lot cheaper than the competition.

The $70 million Mangalyaan, or "Mars craft" in Hindi, began circling Mars after a 24-minute engine burn to slow it down enough to be captured by the Red Planet's gravity."

Read more from NPR.
Scientists cheered and the prime minister congratulated his country on navigating "a route known to very few" to reach the Red Planet — something few other nations have accomplished.

Light and vision is one of the most fascinating physical journeys a human mind can travel. I am often reminded of the bewildering fascination that seized physics nobel-laureate Richard Feynman when he talked about the subject of vision.

Feynman :: Inconceivable nature of nature
