In this two-minute video, National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen relates the story of a giant leopard seal who tried to teach him (Nicklen) how to hunt for penguins. While Nicklen was in Antarctica photographing the seal, she (the seal) kept bringing him penguins as food offerings, thinking that Nicklen was an incompetent predator who couldn’t find food for himself. Watch this short science video and be amazed.

Mystery of the Mobius Strip…

•January 10, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I remember in 4th grade our teacher having us make mobius strips and me being absolutely fascinated by them.  Well how about a mobius strip for breakfast:

On the website of sculptor and mathematician George Hart, there are step-by-step instructions for how to craft a Möbius strip from a single bagel. I like his thoughts at the very end of the instruction process:”It is much more fun to put cream cheese on these bagels than on an ordinary bagel. In additional to the intellectual stimulation, you get more cream cheese, because there is slightly more surface area.”

This map-cut of New York City is almost as insane as the skyline being drawn from memory right now. The four paper panels are each 3′ x 4′ and together show the city blocks, parks and other areas in 4 of the 5 boroughs (sorry Staten Island). It’s one-of-a-kind, and the artist is selling it on Etsy for $55″

Trouble with Pronunciations…

I know in the world of hockey announcers are always surprising me.  But now there’s a great site, The Name Engine, that helps with the pronunciations of Athletes, Entertainers, People in Politics, People in the News, etc.  It not only spells out the pronunciation, but you can also here it…  (via Bits & Pieces)

These are 3-D Body images.

“Almost all Images captured by the scanning electron microscope (SEM), which is a type of electron microscope that uses a beam of high-energy electrons to scan surfaces of images. The electron beam of SEM relates with particles near or on the surface of the sample to be displayed, resulting in a high-resolution 3D image. Magnification levels from x 25 to about x 250,000. Amazingly detailed from 1 to 5 nm in size can be detected.”

So cool… can you guess what these are?  Hold your mouse over the image to find out the answer (and click on the pictures to see even more)…  (via Bits & Pieces)
