Perhaps the most incredible thing about this is that it’s all 100% natural.

Often overshadowed by Venus, Mercury, too, has much to offer in the way of aesthetics. This stinging-hot, quickly-rotating planet is named after the Roman deity Mercury, the high-speed messenger to the gods.
Anthony Howe’s Mindblowing Kinetic Sculpture GIFs
Believe it or not, what you see moving on this screen can actually be witnessed in real life, not just in the vacuum of a fancy computer animation program. Bored with the stilted movement of common paintings, artist Anthony Howe resolved to create works that truly flowed. Utilizing animation programs, Howe drafted kinetic blueprints on his computer and then transferred those to curved pieces of metal. The result is something that appears incredibly surreal and mechanized, when in reality the sculpture relies simply on physics and wind to achieve such an other-worldly effect. Pretty cool stuff. Head to My Modern Met for more on Howe’s process.
No, this isn’t science. No, this isn’t from a large, random sample. But if children are cognizant of certain truths and adults aren’t, the issue of recognizing climate change is one based on naïveté or politics, not its existence.
Before the days of Powerpoint and Prezi, employees at NASA would have to go about conveying their knowledge in a much more laborious way: chalk, board, and likely tears. It wasn’t all in vain, though; 1961 was the year that the first man–a Russian cosmonaut–entered space, and the United States was scrambling to catch up.
Who knew that James Chadwick’s remarkable 1932 discovery of the neutron would ultimately lead to the deaths of over 150,000 Japanese people? Following subsequent research on the uranium atom and its ability to be split in half, Roosevelt and Truman-backed scientists spent hours upon hours studying nuclear fission and ultimately developed the atom bomb. Detonated first in Los Alamos, New Mexico in July 1945, scientists were aghast at what they had achieved: the bomb produced an enormous flash of light and a fireball that expanded over 2,000 feet in two seconds and reached a staggering height of 7.45 miles, forming a mushroom-shaped cloud. The equivalent of 18.6 kilotons of TNT, the Truman administration wasted no time in implementing the deadly device in warfare. Three weeks following its first test, atom bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ending the lives of hundreds of thousands as well as World War II yet instigating a potentially more deadly arms race.
