    A New Perspective of the Day: Wringing Out Water from a Washcloth in Space

    Tenth graders Kendra and Meredith from Fall River, Nova Scotia recently took a top prize the Canadian Space Agency’s Science Challenge with a washcloth-wringing experiment. As part of their prize, Col. Chris Hadfield, currently living in the International Space Station, made a video showing exactly what happens when a person tries to wring out a washcloth in zero gravity.

    I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.

This is maybe one of the greatest wild life phenomenon on the planet ever captured on lens!
In the sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico, a massive congregation of Munkiana Devil Rays, relative of manta rays, was captured by a German photographer Florian Schulz, displaying unusual event which he dubbed as the Flight of the Rays.
But as this wonderful perspective shows, for all the individuals leaping out that are visible at sea level, there are many more below the surface. The jaw-dropping image below shows only a quarter of the whole scene.
No one knows why the rays gather like this, whether to mate, herd prey or migrate or just for the sheer joy of being together

this is beautiful

this is terrifying

so cool!!

    Two of my very dear friends are getting married next weekend (!!!) and all of my invited friends are VERY exciting about our upcoming reunion.

    Another friend of mine (who has never met any of the invited gang) will be in the same town for work, so will probably come meet everyone, and my (also-invited) friend Chris and I were talking about it:

    me: He’s nervous

    me: I told him we’re all very loud and love each other very much

    Chris: that is literally a perfect description of us

    Chris: couldn’t have said it better

    Chris: we will get drunk, we will give lots of hugs, there will be tears of joy, and singing. and you will probably find us very strange.

Brydes whales reach lengths of 15 meters and weigh in at 25 tons. Their speed, streamlined shape and enormous gape allow them to target and engulf small sardine baitballs with a single lunge feed.

    You’re Eye-to-Eye With a Whale in the Ocean. What Does It See?

    In his new book about his process, out next week, Beautiful Whale, he describes a moment where he came eye-to-eye with a sperm whale named Scar. “I lowered the camera so that our eyes could meet once again, I noticed his eye moving along the length of my body before returning to meet my gaze,” Austin wrote. “As I reflect upon that moment and reconsider the question, ‘What does it feel like [to be so close to whales]?’ the only word that comes to mind is ‘disturbing.’”

    Why is it disturbing? Because, as Austin puts it, the whale challenges him “to reevaluate our perceptions of intelligent, conscious life on this planet.” This mammal’s eye — lens, cornea, pupil, retina, photoreceptors and ganglion nerve cells — is a direct passageway into its brain. And when we look at it, Austin can’t help but see an intelligence there, a connection to a brain that, perhaps, works enough like ours for us to understand each other.

    Lately so much whale-centric content has been appearing on my dash and I would be lying if I said I didn’t love EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
