411 - McCains "overhead projector"
Monday, October 27, 2008

Expect a final political post from me as the election gets closer. Obviously as you may have already seen, I am not supporting McCain. Not only because he doesnt believe in science... but for other reasons as well.

This image is from a balloon in near space. This is a hobby flight, yet it returned some of the best pictures ever taken from this altitude.

408 - Physics Package
Wednesday, October 22, 2008


Nuclear weapons contain a physics package: the actual bomb parts. This is about as close as we will ever get to seeing one. They are obviously very top secret. Here we see a smaller part, and a bigger part. In this tiny space is a powerful (and more importantly very hot) boosted fission bomb, and a fusion bomb. The fission bomb creates a massive amount of ablation pressure (burning a layer off quickly) on or above the order of millions of pounds per square inch. Yes thats right, a large building on every square inch. This pressure forces a heavy tamper material to rocket inward, and compresses Lithium-Deuterium fuel to start fusion. This tiny package is very heavy: probably 300 - 600 lbs.

"The horse, called Gracie, was unable to free itself and could have been in danger were it not for a passer-by who was able to come to the rescue after he heard the horse whinnying ."

401 - Mouse kills snake
Wednesday, October 08, 2008


Mouse kills snake

A tiny mouse was thrown into a cage as food for a viper - but turned the tables and killed the snake instead.

The mouse takes on the viper /China Quirky News

Firefighters in Nantou town, Taiwan, caught the 35cm snake and put it into a mouse cage for safe-keeping.

"We then found it a mouse for lunch," a spokesman for the team told Apple Daily. But the firefighters were stunned to see how aggressive the mouse became once it saw the predator in the cage. "It attacked the snake continuously, biting and scratching it," the spokesman added.



The mouse moves in for the kill  /China Quirky News

After a vicious 30 minute battle, the snake was dead and the mouse was left with hardly a scratch.

Lan Sengqiu, the chief fireman, added: "Perhaps it used up its venom when we caught it, and perhaps it was a novice predator."


Hey do you guys like my new post numbering method? Or not.

Jet videos

These are a bunch of videos showing testing of high bypass turbofan engines. They are great engines, and highly efficient (compared to rockets). The money and science that goes into them is impressive.
