I like infographics, generally and a few specifically. I treasure those, such as the one below. And I noticed that the fetus does not take on human form until about 30 weeks.

The Scale of the Universe to help celebrate Solstice!

Note- People seemed to like the GIF I made of this, although that animation really sped things up too fast. Here is the original video that is at a reasonable pace so that you can absorb the scale changes a bit better. I love the Universe!

This is a very good thing.
 
Our planet-hunting +NASA's Kepler Mission makes a comeback with the discovery of the first exoplanet found using its new mission -- K2. The discovery was made when astronomers and engineers devised an ingenious way to repurpose Kepler for the K2 mission and continue its search of the cosmos for other worlds.

Every once in a while, a group of folks invent a better combustion engine. Granted, I would prefer they invented Mr Fusion . . . But I'll settle for this and hope the team gets funding to make this popular.
Fewer parts, a more compact design and more efficient fuel economy.
For the win!
