The Twin Towers were enormous buildings and the attacks of 9/11 were of such magnitude that people were able to see the skyline change from neighboring states and camera-equipped satellites were even able to capture the aftermath from space.
This breathtaking new video from the International Space Station offers a rarely seen view of the Auroras from space.
The Southern and Northern Lights are one of the most beautiful natural phenomenon in the world. So you can imagine how amazing they look while floating above the Earth. You gotta see this footage after the jump.
When the Twin Towers fell on 9/11, the surrounding streets were enshrouded in plumes of smoke and massive clouds of dust.
Artist Xu Bing collected much of this dust and ten years later has used it as material for an installation called Where Does the Dust Collect? Blowing the dust onto the floor of an exhibition space with a leaf blower, he then stenciled a zen poem into it.
When ‘Back to the Future 2′ premiered way back in 1989, its vision of 2015 was exciting: Marty McFly got to enjoy inventions like the hoverboard and self-lacing sneakers. The hoverboard has yet to fully materialize, but we can at least be excited that Nike might be manufacturing those shoes of the future someday soon.
It’s bad enough having to swat away a single bug, but an entire swarm? If you’re anywhere near the Missouri River that’s just something you might have to contend with – these “bugnadoes” form in areas with high volumes of water, particularly after flooding has occurred.
Depending on their surroundings, some trees grow abnormally, with their trunk and branches conforming to nearby debris or blockages.
Former jeweler Peter “Pook” Cook has perfected a process to replicate this himself and actually “sculpt” growing trees into specific formations. Cook began doing this in the late 80s, inspired by fig trees growing on a cliff face. It took him years to refine the method, but the Australian now turns trees into unnatural but indeniably cool shapes, including eerie, human-like figures.
There’s nothing better than a nice ice cream cone on a hot midsummer day — unless, of course, it’s made from scoops of raw ground beef. Sweet Meat, a succulent new project by artist Jasmin Schuller, transforms meat products into deceptively yummy-looking goodies, like slices of cake, popsicles and petits fours.
