This is only the third launch of the Falcon 9, and it already represents a major disruption of the orbital space flight industry. It offers to dramatically lower the price of putting both man and cargo in space. And it is set to resupply the ISS. Can I just say how awesome this is?

This is is much better than the original, and the original was already amazing. Kudos to the creators.
 
I could not believe you can demonstrate the scale of the universe any better than Charles and Ray Ames' classic film, Powers of Ten, but two bothers have made an on-line portal that blows Powers of Ten away.

Check out The Scale of the Universe 2. Takes a minute to load and then have your mind stretched.

This is what electronic "publishing" is really about.

While it's easy to overlook border issues as a U.S citizen who doesn't travel, it's alarming for me to hear just how needlessly bad our border security can be if you draw any suspicion. This is apparently not an isolated incident, either- regular travelers report harassment like this is fairly common.

This also raises a problem with a personal gripe of mine- how it is illegal to lie to law enforcement. It leads to incidents like the one in the article, where police pressure someone to "tell the truth" for hours. If the weary suspect changes his story to please the people holding him, he is suddenly arrested for lying to an officer. The pressure to tell the "real" story was a trap - the actual aim was to get the suspect to contradict himself.

It's interesting how clear of an arc is formed. But what is that one red jet doing above all the others?

NEEEEEEEEERRRRRDDD.

But it looks kind of like an exponential curve with a low coefficient. It's hard to eyeball these kind of things.

Every second along the beach there are scenes like this if only we could stop time like my little tiny Lumix camera can. The water in the surf today was like putty and clay, a sculpture. But we can't see it ourselves. Like a microscope or a telescope, a camera can be a chronoscope, letting us see in a dimension that we are blind to. When I look through a scope, I feel a better human because I can see new things. In this way, technology enlarges our humanity.
