Rain on the beach - what do we know? Turns out not much in terms of granular impact cratering by liquid drops. "This video, created by researchers from University of Minnesota, shows how drops of water landing on microscopic glass beads — just like the particles of sand on a beach — affect what lies beneath. Depending on the momentum of the drops, they can leave a wide variety of craters, as the video shows. Interestingly, it turns out that rain drops landing in sand behave in much the same was as asteroid impacts. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the video below won the 2014 APS Physics Fluid Motion Award."

dunno why....asteroids are made from rock not water....so the experiment is a waste of an award.

The Thorium Car – This Car Runs For 100 Years Without Refuelling http://b4in.org/r7HJ

If your car was powered by thorium, you would never need to refuel it. The vehicle would burn out long before the chemical did. The thorium would last so long, in fact, it would probably outlive you.

That’s why a company called Laser Power Systems has created a concept for a thorium-powered car engine. The element is radioactive, and the team uses bits of it to build a laserbeam that heats water, produces steam, and powers an energy-producing turbine.

Thorium is one of the most dense materials on the planet. A small sample of it packs 20 million times more energy than a similarly-sized sample of coal, making it an ideal energy source.

The thing is, Dr. Charles Stevens, the CEO of Laser Power Systems, told Mashable that thorium engines won’t be in cars anytime soon.

“Cars are not our primary interest,” Stevens said. ”The automakers don’t want to buy them.”

He said too much of the automobile industry is focused on making money off of gas engines, and it will take at least a couple decades for thorium technology to be used enough in other industries that vehicle manufacturers will begin to consider revamping the way they think about engines. We’re building this to power the rest of the world,” Stevens said.

He believes a thorium turbine about the size of an air conditioning unit could more provide cheap power for whole restaurants, hotels, office buildings, even small towns in areas of the world without electricity. At some point, thorium could power individual homes.

Stevens understands that people may be wary of Thorium because it is radioactive — but any such worry would be unfounded.

“The radiation that we develop off of one of these things can be shielded by a single sheet off of aluminum foil,” Stevens said. ”You will get more radiation from one of those dental X-rays than this.”

Good article! Cool car! But not practical. But I believe The LFTR modular reactor will be the worlds main source for electrical power generation within 30 years... give or take.

I imagine that most of you reading this are already aware of how much the cable monopolies are threatening #netneutrality , but for anyone who isn't, this clip from John Oliver lays out perfectly what's at stake, and why we're even talking about this right now.

+Terence Mappin The photographer, Tadao Cern, dressed in similar clothes and posed the same as Van Gogh to get the shot. The glasses website company superimposed the original painting and the photo together. I hope they paid him well.

Written by Steven Bancarz | We often speak of the universe being a reflection of ourselves, and point to how the eye, veins, and brain cells mirror visual phenomenon in the natural universe.

As above so below right?
How about the idea that the universe is a giant brain? - See more at: http://www.spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com/we-are-living-in-a-giant-brain-claim-scientists/#sthash.DuJIeyfk.dpuf

Airless tires. Veins of thermoplastic, going one way on one side and the other way on the other side. You can't get a flat, and there isn't any "give" in cornering. You replace only a thin strip of tread layer.
Everything about air in tires is antiquated. The checking, refilling, and patching hasn’t changed much in a century. Brian Cooley tells you why tires without air may be the future.
