Plans from the internet for $5. Laser cut at the Sydney maker-space on $10 worth of acrylic plus some offcuts.
It's a bit loose (needed glue instead if friction) - we didn't take into consideration the width of the laser cut.
Went really well for minimal planning :-)

My brain hurts.
 
Easy to understand animation going over all of Einstein's Theory. Covers both Special Relativity and General Relativity.

The explanation was quite reasonable up to the point where the rocket caused a universal dent in space-time big enough to move the universe at such an acceleration that the astronaut was thrown back in his chair. Also, skipping the relatively simple substitution of e=mc^2 in the formula for kinetic energy and just noting that acceleration of a mass to the speed of light needs infinite energy was a bit over the top.

Sherlock Meets The Doctor!

This amazing fan cut mashes together BBC's Sherlock (amzn.to/sherlockbbctv) and Doctor Who (amzn.to/whovianstuff)! I love it!

"Months after an encounter with a mysterious 'Doctor', Sherlock becomes obsessed with discovering more about this impossible man... until the man makes an unexpected return."

So Awesome.
 
Great interactive application that shows the scale of the very very small and very very large of the universe. Thanks +Jesse Stay for the link.

Ok question: Which did you find more enjoyable sliding to the right (macro) or sliding to the left (micro)?

On this day – 42 Years Ago "Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon" ¹

If you're Australian, you've probably heard Redgum – I Was Only 19 ( A Walk in the Light Green ) ² — What you might not have heard are the details and personal significance of events which feature prominently in the song. Please read, and share the following story.

The details – Within the same day that Apollo 11 mission was successfully landing the first man on the moon, "On Jul 21 (1969) 3 Platoon was involved in an M16 mine incident near the old deserted village of Hội Mỹ in the Light Green. The incident resulted in the death of the platoon commander, Lieutenant P.A. Hines, and eighteen (18) soldiers of '3 Platoon' were wounded. Whilst the mine clearing drills and the 'dustoff' were in progress a second mine was detonated. This resulted in the death of Corporal J. Needs the senior NCO remaining in '3 Platoon' and the wounding of six (6) soldiers including the Commanding Officer and the Regimental Medical Officer, Captain T.R. Anderson, who had flown in (earlier) to assist the evacuation of the wounded." — The history of 6RAR-NZ (ANZAC) Battalion 1967-1970

"The Sixth Battalion was the next to tour and it was me who drew the card… God help me, I was only nineteen."

My father – Stanley Robert McKenzie SHEA (1947-2010): Was only 19 when conscripted during the 1967 ballot. He was deployed to Vietnam with 6th Battalion during its tour of 1969 – 6RAR, A Coy, 3 Platoon…

Yes, that 3 Platoon.

"Can you tell me, doctor, why I still can't get to sleep? … why the Channel Seven chopper chills me to my feet?"

He was one of the very few fortunate enough, to walk away from that incident physically unscathed — but I'm certain his experiences of the Vietnam War affected him and our family throughout our lives, as he suffered "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" – another theme evident in the song.³

War not only affects those who experience it directly … War affects everyone.

So whilst many of us perhaps celebrate the major accomplishment of landing the first man on the moon. I'm reminded not only of; this song, my late father, and the pitiful waste of human life that is war; but also how it's long lasting affects are felt by our veterans and their families. It's definitely played a part in shaping who I am today.

Really well done combination of techniques to produce this cool video without post-production CGI...
 
You seriously, seriously, seriously need to watch this. Seriously

Electricity and Water do mix!
 
Swimming with 200,000 volts. Sure it’s safe. Tin hats protect you. Only do this at home.

This is my medium sized Tesla coil. Once you know the physics your rational mind says it's quite safe. But there's that little voice that says "run away, run away...
