An absolutely amazing video explaining one of the more important topics to understand if you want to understand the basics of General Relativity. To answer you next question ... Yes, yes you DO want to understand General Relativity.

It is an amazing thing to stitch images together such that they don't show the arm taking the photo! The rover looks pretty good for over 1100 sols, aka martian days!

Fascinating.  Probably scary if you are a sociopath :)  Just paste in a decent sized text block you've written and look into a different kind of mirror.

A very interesting read!  It explains a lot and also highlights how our "praise comes easy" society has changed many kids since the 80's.  

I've always noticed a correlation between students who, from the very beginning, had to work hard to grasp and master a subject; and how they eventually excel in school.  This is probably due to internalizing the principle that "having to work really hard, and possibly failing multiple times" does not mean "I'm not good at this and I'll never get it and should give up"... a form of learned perseverance that isn't due to inherent character traits.

Perhaps understanding this psychological quirk, and its potential consequences, will help us identify circumstances that can be used to positively reinforce and maintain a child's natural indomitability for the rest of their life!
