Here’s something to try today.

Go to Google Moon.

I got this image from Astronomy Picture of the Day. You may want to consider bookmarking them. (I’ve added them to the links list as well)

Science and Magic, a deadly combination

Filed under: Chemistry,Comics,Earth Science,Order of the Stick — sciencefun @ 9:25 am


Order of the Stick is a Dungeons and Dragons based comic, but I couldn’t resist the application of real science in the occult setting.

For the record, though, GMs hate when you do that.
(Any science geek who’s played Mage: The Ascension should have first hand knowledge of this.)

all my friends

I’m not in the habit of shilling for people (especially people I don’t know), but I saw the design and wanted to share it. So it’s only fair I share the website where you can buy the shirt.

These pics are from a guy named Kenneth Libbrecht. You can see more at his website here.



Finally, here’s a link to a picture that shows a low temperature SEM magnification series for a snowflake. It’s got 8 images of a snowflake continually zoomed in until 36000x.
