The Shadow of Surface Tension

An insect like a wasp or a water strider can rest atop the water, held up by surface tension. This means that the cohesive force of the water molecules sticking to each other is stronger than the force of the bug being pushed down by gravity. This works because it spreads its weight out over a large surface area (like snowshoes). That creates a slight indentation in the top of the water, changing the direction that the light coming down is refracted and re-directing it slightly sideways (that’s where the bright halos around the dark areas come from). And what’s the absence of light?

Photo Series of the week: Portraits of People Who Look Alike But Aren’t Related At All

 

Portraits of People Who Look Alike But Arent Related At All vFJi1

Canadian photographer François Brunelle is fascinated with the human face and the question of whether everyone has a doppelganger somewhere on Earth that looks exactly like them. For years now, he has been working on a project called I’m Not a Look-Alike!, which features portraits of people who look like identical twins but aren’t actually related at all. Brunelle looks for subjects whose faces are so similar that their close friends might have trouble telling them apart.

World’s most advanced prosthetic arm

“A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease of life by a hi-tech bionic hand which is so precise he can type again. Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fibre mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm.”

Fun with Gallium

7649_dd54

Gallium, atomic number 31, melting point of 29.4 °C (85 Fahrenheit).This awesome stuff will melt in your hand when you pick it up, and when you’re done, just pour it into a dish of some sort and watch it solidify, just waiting for you to play with it again.

Website of the year: Kanye Wes

The Life Aquatic / Flashing Lights

This site is simply genius. As you can see above, it takes lyrics from Kanye West songs and combines them with the appropriate still from a Wes Anderson movie, or, visible below, a line from a Wes Anderson movie combined with a still from a Kanye West music video; hence the name of the site, Kanye Wes. Now I’m not sure how many of you who visit my site both love Wes Anderson movies and appreciate Kanye West, but if you do, I assure you, this site is for you.

Here are a few more of my favorites:
