Friction welding already looks out of this world. I mean, watching two pieces of metal forge together through friction as they turn bright space orange? Awesome. But seeing friction welding in slow motion? That’s when we find out how truly spectacular the process is. The little sparks flying off the metal blocks look…
Queue up that 2001 soundtrack, baby! Following up on the incredible Aurora Borealis and Australis footage that Nasa posted a few days ago, we can now marvel at crystal clear 4K footage of our home sweet home, covered in white clouds and blue sky. Now that Nasa and the astronauts on the ISS are shooting and sharing…
Our friend Lieutenant Chris Nigus—Weapons Training Officer with the Strike-Fighter Squadron VFA-27 Royal Maces—sent us his new video, which has some truly spectacular shots that I have never seen before. Like the night shot footage above—we only had photos—or this cool landing footage from a carrier's deck camera.
Wingsuit flyer Patrick Kerber didn't seem to be daunted by the idea of jumping from the top of a mountain to a dark void—only slightly illuminated by a red flare he holds in his hand—to take a picture. It's true that the resulting photo is stunning but also one of the craziest and most dangerous stunts I've ever seen.
All photos from space are cool, but this photo of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is simply masterful, the most spectacular of all the photos of the comet so far. Worthy of a Kubrick movie frame.
You have to give it to those Swedes: Behind those chiseled marble faces with platinum blonde hair and cold steel blue eyes there's a great, almost British sense of humor that takes the piss out of everything.

This spectacular multi-angle video shows Guerlain Chicherit's attempt to beat the world record for the longest car jump, which is now held by Tanner Foust at 332 feet (101 meters). Chicherit tried save a 360 feet (109.7 meter) gap between a 20-ton steel ramp and a concrete landing surface. Fortunately, he didn't die.
A belated happy birthday to the Hubble Space Telescope: Our favorite source of wonder and joy was 24 years old on April 24, and the Hubble site celebrated it with this spectacular visualization of the Monkey Head Nebula.
I love rocket launches photos, especially when they are as awesome as this photo by Pat Corkery, featured by the US Air Force.
You're looking at the Grand Canyon completely flooded by clouds, "a once in a lifetime event," according to park ranger Erin Whittaker. It didn't only happen once, she says, but two times in only three days:
Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano, erupted into life this past weekend, sending lava bombs about one-meter-wide soaring into the sky for the first time in over 20 years.
Glass Toilets are the
remix natural evolution of your run of the mill porcelain tank. Ironically constructed from acrylic, the transparent nature of the tank allows you to add theme to your throne in just minutes. Maybe the dolphin has always been your favorite animal, or maybe you just crave a few moments of…
