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.
