Death laser ray spider-bot bring us one step closer to the apocalypse

From the DIY Laser Guy: "I present my most terrifying laser creation as of yet... the remote controlled death ray drone bot! This beast packs a potent 2W blue laser that fries anything in it's path. It can walk around and shoot it's death ray at the touch of a button."

How Andromeda would look on the night sky if it was brighter

The picture shows the crescent Moon in the sky, and superposed near it is the Andromeda galaxy, the nearest big spiral to our own Milky Way. The caption varies from site to site, but generally says that this is how big the Andromeda galaxy would actually look in our sky if it were brighter.

The Death of the Universe

Here's a great little video from Ted-Ed about the death of the Universe. How do we know how the Universe will end? What impact does the discovery of dark matter and dark energy have on future of the Universe?

One of the most interesting ideas comes near the end. Cosmologists believe that the Universe was highly accelerated during its inflationary period at the beginning. And again, in the far future, when dark energy's acceleration is overwhelming, it'll be the same thing. Acceleration at the beginning, and at the end.

Stop whatever you're doing and click this! Seriously. It is simply the most stunning and wondrous picture of Saturn I have ever seen — a mosaic of Cassini images put together by Gordan Urgakovic. Make sure you grab the high-res version, then read along as I take you on a tour of what you're seeing.

Holy wow.
