Check this shit out! Straight up Jurassic Park. I don’t know what we’re going to clone from this glorious preservation, but I am calling first dibs on riding it. Hell yeah! Buying my new riding crop. T-Rex. Giant spider. Don’t matter. I got firsties.
Bradbury high-fives all around! Curiosity has found evidence of an ancient stream of Mars. Now – dear friends – all we must do is channel our combined telepathic will into filling that stream with material of the cosmos, transforming it into a bubbling creak. Or something.
Earth got a little less interesting yesterday when Niel Armstrong passed away at the age of 82. In an age when people are famous from drunken exploits and reality TV shows, Neil was truly an inspiration. In the 60′s and 70′s he was a reality star in a different way. Except what he was doing mattered. Oh what a time to be alive. He was the face of space exploration for over 40 years. In a year where we already lost Ray Bradbury, this is another black mark. If we lose Chuck Yaeger in 2012, I may cry.
Everyone knows that Stephen Hawking is both one brilliant motherfucker and also the victim of a most uncool disease. The device that has helped the duder communicate since losing his voice thirty years ago are failing, leading totally wizard scientists into creating an equally impressive new one.
We have grown a fucking liver inside a mouse’s head. Vaulting with reckless abandon over scientific rubicons.
Breast milk. Now I’m most familiar with it through late night fetish videos and silently cursing myself and my predilections. Now however, I can know it as a possible…cure for HIV. Wut?
A virus that creates electricity. Just think about that shit in your brain-stem for a moment, augmenting it with this further thought. It’s real. It’s really real. Welcome to the future where the computer you’re watching furry-snuff porn on is powered by virii generating electricity from the thumping of your stroke hand.
Watch in sublime horror as we create the technology that will (hopefully) give rise to Caprica Six’s taut buns reacting to No More Mr. Nice Gaius’ lil weiner.
What would it look like if you put all the water on Earth in one place? Hint: it would look like you should stop watering your fucking lawn so much, you swine. No seriously, it’s pretty goddamn impressive(ly small).
Hit the jump to check it out.
Nanoparticles. Radio waves. Gene manipulation. Actual science. Feels a lot like the future, man.
