It’s been a while since I last shared science-related bits. Without further ado:
- No Photoshop required: The “barreleye” fish (or what my wife refers to as “eww, that weird eyeball fish!”) has tubular eyes and a translucent head. Scroll down for the video. [Via Jerry Harris]
- I’m not sure it’s scientific, but the Periodic Table of Awesomeness is fun. (And “Almost intolerably awesome.”) [Via]
- The math-rock kids get crazy exploring logo designs with Mathematica.
- The Big Picture hosts a “Round trip with Endeavour,” showing the various stages of a shuttle flight. This shot especially is outta sight.
- NatGeo features a zoomable map of the moon from 1969 , and cartographer Richard Furno tells the story of how the map came to be. [Via]
- HIRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment, has put a bunch of stereoscopic pictures of the surface of Mars online, requiring 3-D glasses to view.
- The Onion staff offer their take on NASA.
One thought on “Monday Science”
“The “barreleye” fish (or what my wife refers to as “eww, that weird eyeball fish!”)”
That is jawdroppingly amazing!
Like many deep sea critters, it looks like it was created by some God under the influence of some bad LSD. But this critter is odd even by those standards.
