ISBW #131 - Worldcon Interviews Lake, (Felix) Gilman, and Kelly, Kessel, and Cadigan — Mur Lafferty's podcast, interviewing a few of us writers who were at WorldCon.

Ukrainian Sand Animation — Wow. Fascinating video. (Thanks to MH, whose LJ handle I suddenly can't remember.)

Famous photos recreated in Lego — Cool.

tacit with The wonder of the physical universe: Naica, Mexico — Wow. A must-read blog post (with photos!) about giant crystals. (Thanks to danjite.)

Astronomers Plan Galaxy-Sized Observatory For Gravitational Waves — Now that is some bad-ass instrumentation.

Lightcraft: A Laser Push to OrbitCentauri Dreams with a write up on an interesting launch technology. Like Project Orion, without the radiation poisoning.

Venus probe images hint at ancient ocean — Ah, to be young again. Or something. (Nicked from james_nicoll.)

Youre Likely to Live!Freakonomics on ageing and the Gompertz Law of human mortality. Who knew? (Besides actuaries, of course.)

A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words — Anti-Obama derangement, fairly literally.

Race is a Factor — Ta-Nehisi Coates with more on anti-Obama vitriol, comparing it to anti-Clinton vitriol. Hey, remember when the Right was tut-tutting about liberals and their inexplicable Bush derangement syndrome? Yeah, well, they sure don't remember it.

There are three Gilmans in the genre field now. You might want to identify further in reference.
