So astronomers recently caught sight of a supernova that is closer to earth than any seen before (about 21 million light years away). And they saw it reeeally really close to the beginning of the explosion. Pretty cool.
“At a mere 21 million light-years from Earth, a relatively small distance by astronomical standards, the supernova is still getting brighter, and might even be visible with good binoculars in ten days’ time, appearing brighter than any other supernova of its type in the last 30 years.”
They say the best time to see this exploding star will be just after evening twilight in the Northern hemisphere in a week or so. We’ll need dark skies and a good pair of binoculars, although a small telescope would be even better.
I cannot possibly tell you how awesome this movie looks. Just watch
Oh this is too good.
A study by scientists from Oxford University and Amsterdam University found that growing meat in a lab “rather than slaughtering animals would generate only a tiny fraction of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with conventional livestock production.”
Thankfully big boys and girls who don’t ride bikes outside of recreational use and and love America have found that “lab-grown tissue would reduce greenhouse gases by up to 96% in comparison to raising animals. The process would require between 7% and 45% less energy than the same volume of conventionally produced meat such as pork, beef, or lamb, and could be engineered to use only 1% of the land and 4% of the water associated with conventional meat.”
So either go live in the mountains and pray the urban sprawl doesn’t run you over before you die or pop your dinner pill, THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
“The film, 1911, tells the story of the Xinhai Revolution, otherwise known as the Chinese Revolution, in which nationalist forces rose up to take down the Qing Dynasty and established the Republic of China. It was basically the beginning of modern China, kind of their Revolutionary War and Civil War rolled into one, and a very important moment in Chinese history. Chan co-directed the film along with Zhang Li and co-stars as one of the two rival leaders in the nationalist movement.”
Finally, Jackie will show us all how good of an actor he is. He certainly don’t want no trouble in this one.
Why is it that robotic engineers unanimously have never seen robot dystopian sci fi movies? Let’s take some culture cues people, this is getting out of control. Also skip ahead to 1:30 to watch this chick flee from a crazed robot to the theme of top gun.
I am actually beginning to find appeal in the new Rise of the Planet of the Apes movie. James Franco will do just about anything to get attention, but while the last movie was horse shit and the new plot seems shakey, the trailers seem to keep getting better and better. I might be totally alone on this though, I do like Southland Tales a lot.
