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 Orbit — Centauri 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.
