Fire! We're drawn to it like moths to a flame. (Wait...does that metaphor still work when it references the allure of fire?) Regardless, for this week's Shooting Challenge, you photographed flames, and here are the results.
Whether it's a fireplace or a glowing candle, there's nothing like a little pyromania to cut through the winter blues. So for this week's Shooting Challenge, photograph flames.
Flame, in microgravity. Reid Wiseman sends home the best Vines from Space.
Red hot nickel ball of fire meet your toughest opponent yet: aerogel. In fact, aerogel is such an amazing material and excellent insulator that the eternal flame of the nickel ball does absolutely nothing to it. Like, seriously. It affects the aerogel as much as the normal air around it (or in it too?). But hey. We're…
It looks dangerous—because it is—but there's more to fire breathing than meets the eye. In order to do it safely, you need to think about the science involved, and this video explains why.
This trick, called "the traveling flame" or "flame dropping" is a quick fix for anyone who is feeling their inner pyromaniac getting restless. And it's a fun way to play around with those nice candles your family puts out for Thanksgiving.
The NY Times is reporting that unknown computer hackers who call themselves "Cutting Sword of Justice" have claimed responsibility for spreading a malicious virus into Saudi Aramco, the Saudi government-owned oil company that's also the world's largest, and destroying three-quarters of all its computers. The hackers…
Earlier this year, a devastating virus dubbed Flame made its way through power plants in Iran, wreaking havoc on system software, and prompting the country to disconnect itself from the internet. Now comes word from Kaspersky Labs that there's a copycat virus doing the same thing to "at least one organization in the…
After being dominated by weaponized trojan horses on two different occasions, nuclear loudmouth Iran says it's had enough: it's unplugging from the Internet, hiding, and making its own.
This is not a metaphor: the Olympic Flame has died for real, as technicians were moving the cauldron to a new location in the stadium. Now, they have to sacrifice 12 virgin ping-pong players and start a war with the Persians.
Usually, cars don't explode in a huge ball of fire, as Michael Bay wants you to believe. Unless you are at the Kashira highway in Moscow, Russia, just like these guys.
The new Samsung Galaxy S III is a great phone that's just trying too hard. So hard, in fact, that it's bursting into flames under the pressure.
It's a scenario security researchers have long worried about, a man-in-the-middle attack that allows someone to impersonate Microsoft Update to deliver malware - disguised as legitimate Microsoft code - to unsuspecting users.
A massive, highly sophisticated piece of malware has been newly found infecting systems in Iran and elsewhere and is believed to be part of a well-coordinated, ongoing, state-run cyberespionage operation.
The malware, discovered by Russia-based anti-virus firm Kaspersky Lab, is an espionage toolkit that has been…
A little bit of science is brought into everyone's life on that fateful day they try to blow out birthday candles while making a wish, only to see the candles do the impossible and reignite.
If everything goes well, soon we will be able to reach the center of the Earth using 7200ºF flame jets that can go into any kind of material at 100 feet an hour. Wait, "if everything goes well"?
Lighting a BBQ can be done with a match. But, as any NRA member can attest, it's a job best left to a gun.
Next Friday, a Dutch robotics researcher named Daan Hobbelen at TU Delft will be getting his PhD for building a robot named Flame. What's the big deal? you robo-saturated Giz readers ask. Flame has been built to walk like a man, using human-based principles that strike fear in the hearts of other robotics experts. …
One fun rumor bopping around the phone sites is that MWg, the smartphone maker previously known as O2 Asia, will be rolling out a Windows Mobile 7 phone in the fourth quarter of 2008, specifically the Flame II shown above. That's about a year earlier than we last heard. Everyone sounds skeptical, but you never know,…
