Time’s running faster than I am at the moment… brief glimpse behind the curtains.
Some scientists make discoveries by stumbling through dusty museum collections, now ChrisM of Echinoblog finds a previously unobserved sexual pose in National Geographics photo gallery… there it is, the above photo by David Doubilet. Kinky bastard. Also of note: the sun star Labidiaster eating a theropod.
I’m always amazed at what someone can see if he / she is informed enough to know what it is they’re looking at / looking for.
Kudos to NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio for this exemplary video explaining hurricane dynamics. Graphics and text descriptions are combined into a wonderfully engaging, understandable video. Be sure to check out the animatic and scribble board. Kudos!
