This 30 second animation was done by Carlo Vega, a very talented painter from Brooklyn, NY and lover of geometric shapes. He drew inspiration from some posts from Geometry Daily and made it into this beautiful short. I added the music which is by North Sea, taken from the Ancients EP.
A suit built in 1960 by the Republic Aviation Corporation solved the problem of what “the well-dressed man” would “wear for a stroll over the airless moonscape.” The Oct. 16 photo spread promised that the outfit would have its own oxygen supply and that its tripod legs would “enable its wearer to rest by sitting on a perch inside.” The wrench hands were presumably for securing loose screws.

In this video, mixtures of inks (likely printer toners) and fluids move and swirl. Magnetic fields contort the ferrofluidic ink and make it dance, while less viscous fluids spread into their surroundings via finger-like protuberances. (Video credit and submission: Antoine Delach)
This is how the XL Records offices in LA now look thanks to a collaboration between UK artists Stanley Donwood and INSA to create a series of animated ‘gif-iti’ pieces for the launch of the new Atoms For Peace album…
INSA in fact painted the building four times in order to make the frames for the gif files (shown below), which make up the Hollywood Dooom project. The finished work, when viewed online, looks like this:
On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled at over 900 miles per second. The CME did not travel directly toward Earth, but did connect with Earth’s magnetic environment, or magnetosphere, causing aurora to appear on the night of Monday, September 3.

An African leopard in northern Kenya seems to be amazed by a camera trap in a recent picture. The big cat is one of several species spotted during a survey of the coastal Boni–Dodori forest, which lies between the Tana River and the Somali border.
