Tonight's Meteor Shower Will Be Like Watching the Jump to Light Speed

Already being hyped as one of the best of 2014—with some calling it a once-in-a-lifetime experience—the Camelopardalids meteor shower, which starts tonight, will also be unlike many meteor showers you might have seen: Instead of lights streaming across the sky diagonally, the meteors will be radiating out from a very… » 5/23/14 4:40pm 5/23/14 4:40pm

Watch a massive thunderstorm form in this timelapse

Man, this looks like some end of the world type weather. It's the type of thunderstorm I'd see in a movie and think the CGI was too fake. It's the type of supercell I'd see in real life and think it's all over for everybody. It remind us how small we are, how incredible (and scary!) nature can be and how damn cool it… » 5/19/14 8:01pm 5/19/14 8:01pm

Hear the shocking difference between 2013 and 2014 F1 racing engines

The rules done changed in F1 racing from last year to now and the most obvious difference between 2013 and 2014 is the sound of the engine in F1 racing cars. Before they used to be so screaming loud that they sounded like the manifestation of space laser warfare on the road. Now in 2014? It's like hearing weak go… » 3/17/14 10:11pm 3/17/14 10:11pm

Listen to the Purring, Electromagnetic Weirdness of Mushrooms

I was blown away when I first heard about a project that tried to tap into the electromagnetic communication potential of mushrooms. Using wires, radio waves, and circuits—not psychedelics—the project's off-kilter quest to find (and listen to) "electromagnetic fungi" was nonetheless more art than science. But who says… » 2/01/14 9:00pm 2/01/14 9:00pm

A broken billboard looks psychedelically drugged out

It's okay. It's not just you. You didn't pop a pill you shouldn't have before your afternoon coffee. You're not in a dream world. The billboard actually looks like that in real life and apparently it's on purpose, the broken electronic billboard is being tested for all working colors. I see acid. » 1/21/14 10:30pm 1/21/14 10:30pm

Lightning struck Rio's Jesus Christ statue and broke off his fingers

Rio de Janeiro, which has been getting lit up with lightning storms this week, just got hit with another one—and this one struck the city's famous 125-foot tall Christ the Redeemer statue on top of the Corcovado mountain. A lightning bolt broke off a few fingers on his right hand. » 1/17/14 10:53pm 1/17/14 10:53pm

Dubai had the world's largest fireworks show and it was amazing

To celebrate the New Year, Dubai decided to break the Guinness World Record for world's largest fireworks show. Because of course the world's largest fireworks show would be in Dubai. They put the best show on every year. Might as well put on the biggest too. Dubai exploded over 500,000 fireworks in just 6 minutes… » 1/02/14 8:12pm 1/02/14 8:12pm

Lifting cannons with helicopters seems like a lot of fun

It looks like Call of Duty. It's not. It looks like a movie. It's not. Instead it's an incredible photograph of a Marine Corps Super Stallion Helicopter taking off with a M777 howitzer in the California desert. In real life. What a powerful image. The helicopter is lugging the 7,500 pound 35 foot long monster of a… » 12/27/13 9:13pm 12/27/13 9:13pm

This amazing T-rex illusion is somehow moving its head to follow you

As far as tyrannosaurus rex replicas go, this one seems pretty cheery. Sure, it has sharp teeth and claws but they look playfully toothy. One thing scary about it though: the head and eyes seems to follow you wherever you go. Like the paper T-Rex is watching your every move. What's scarier? It's not actually moving.… » 12/23/13 9:12pm 12/23/13 9:12pm

Spin around a mountain in super speed like Superman

Things that usually spin really, really fast: a top, the wheel of fortune wheel, other wheels, circular objects, knobs and other things of that nature. Not a mountain! Well, unless you're Superman and can fly around it. Newsflash: we're not Superman. However! Kevin Parry and Andrea Nesbitt of Candy Glass Productions » 12/02/13 10:20pm 12/02/13 10:20pm

An artist recreated Blade Runner with 12,000 water color paintings

Holy wow this is impressive. Artist Anders Ramsell animated Blade Runner by painting 12,597 different water color paintings and stringing them together into beautifully fluid sequences. It's incredible, you feel like you're watching Blade Runner, you get to hear Harrison Ford and follow the story but you're seeing it… » 11/19/13 8:03pm 11/19/13 8:03pm

What your favorite rock stars would look like if they were alive today

Rock stars don't age, at least our memories of them don't. Sure, some of them get the harsh lines of life imprinted onto their face and others pass away as a shell of themselves much too early but our memories of rock stars never change. They stay forever young through iconic pictures, through the emotions of their… » 11/18/13 7:22pm 11/18/13 7:22pm

These photos of people in secluded tribes are astonishingly beautiful

Photographer Jimmy Nelson has a beautiful new book called Before They Pass Away. It's a visual expedition into 29 of the most secluded tribes in the world and from the looks of his pictures, it's absolutely fantastic. The people that Nelson photographed live in such seclusion from the rest of the world that they're on… » 11/07/13 9:52pm 11/07/13 9:52pm

Every mountain needs to have a wonderful cloud bridge like this

The problem with building man made structures in natural wonders like mountain ranges is that they can sore your eyes pretty quickly. Some parts of the world should be left untouched! But imagine a bridge like this one, designed to look like a cloud, on top of a few mountains. The views would be absolutely… » 11/06/13 11:13pm 11/06/13 11:13pm

These wire sculptures actually look like people frozen in carbonite

It's sort of unbelievable but these sculptures are all made from aluminum wire. When you look at the artwork up close, you can see each line of wire coming together to form the body of a human but when you're looking from far away it totally looks like people frozen in carbonite. » 11/04/13 10:42pm 11/04/13 10:42pm
