Nice Vangelis piece with a fun set of metrics about our planet in its relation to the sun, etc.

Yes, I'm the one who's been making a mess of your sidewalk. I have needs too, you know!

"Electric Sunday" in Fairfax County, Virginia. Once a month, people line up to divest themselves of old computers, printers, peripherals, game consoles, televisions, fluorescent light bulbs, and other electrical products and appliances. It takes up to half an hour to get through the line, but the county employees move quickly and efficiently to unload your vehicle. Maybe that old Linux laptop will become part of someone's powered exoskeleton!

Local warming phenomena have brought this Chantilly deck glacier to an end. It will be gone within about 30 minutes.

Interesting size comparison.
 
Did you know the International Space Station, including its large solar arrays, spans the area of a U.S. football field, including the end zones, and weighs over 900,000 pounds? The complex has more livable room than a conventional six-bedroom house, and has two bathrooms, a gymnasium and a 360-degree bay window.

The big game on Sunday will be broadcast during the space station astronauts’ sleep period. Flight controllers are expected to uplink the game to the crew, but they likely will not watch a replay of the Super Bowl until a later date when time permits.

Maybe the astronauts could call in sick then they could stay up and watch the game.

I wonder if the hawk was expecting something good to eat.

No, he was a really smart hawk and was just thirsty.

Build your own single lens reflex camera - with a kit from Lomography (http://shop.lomography.com/us/cameras/konstruktor-family). This particular camera is a fully working device, but the translucent skin lets too many photons leak in and ruin your film. If you want to take real pictures, get the black model.

Those pesky photons. You can't live with them and you can't live without them.

How to see inside the digestive system: just swallow this capsule and let its tiny camera take pictures while transmitting them to a nearby receiver. Yeah, it's got a built-in flash LED, too. A wonder of modern technology!

+eric mingo You're supposed to fast before taking - then it will look like an episode of "The Magic School Bus" when they went all the way through someone's alimentary canal!

24 to 48 Gbps for 8k Ultra High Definition. Olympics coverage would be okay, but I don't think nightly news would be worth it.

Introduction
I've been working as an electronics engineer for about the past three decades. During that time, I've drawn closer to the Lord, raised a beautiful family, and worn out several pairs of shoes mowing grass.
