Internet security experts are scrambling to assess the extent of the breach caused by a massive bug called Heartbleed in the OpenSSL technology that runs encryption for two-thirds of the web and went unnoticed for two years until last week

If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel - Great interactive visualization for getting an idea of how much space there is in space. Experience the scale of the distances between us and our nearest neighbors.  The icons on top jump to highlights.

Discovered from +David Grigg's comment recommending the quite amazing digital version.   Thanks all!

Neurosurgeons successfully implant 3D printed skull

A 22-year-old woman from the Netherlands who suffers from a chronic bone disorder — which has increased the thickness of her skull from 1.5cm to 5cm, causing reduced eyesight and severe headaches — has had the top section of her skull removed and replaced with a 3D printed implant.

The operation was performed by a team of neurosurgeons at the University Medical Centre Utrecht and the university claims this is this first instance of a successful 3D printed cranium that has not been rejected by the patient.

The operation, which took 23 hours, was led by Dr Bon Verweij. The patient’s skull was so thick, that had the operation not been performed, serious brain damage or death may have occurred in the near future.

Buttered Cat Paradox

The buttered cat paradox is a common joke based on the tongue-in-cheek combination of two adages:

Cats always land on their feet.
Buttered toast always lands buttered side down.

The paradox arises when one considers what would happen if one attached a piece of buttered toast (butter side up) to the back of a cat, then dropped the cat from a large height. Some people jokingly maintain that the experiment will produce an anti-gravity effect. The faux paradox has captured the imagination of science-oriented humorists.

The idea appeared on the British panel game QI, where the idea was discussed. As well as talking about the idea, they also brought up other questions regarding the paradox. These included "Would it still work if you used margarine?", "Would it still work if you used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter?", and "What if the toast was covered in something that was not butter, but the cat thought it was butter?", the idea being that it would act like a placebo. The paradox also appeared in the episode "Gravitational Anarchy" of the scientific podcast RadioLab.

Brazilian energy drink brand Flying Horse has released a commercial that simulates the recreation of this phenomenon, which is then used to create perpetual energy. I used the commercial to make the gif. below.
