Music of the Day: OK Go Wants to Release New Album as DNA
- -

OK Go is trying to out weird itself once again.

The band known for their creative, over-the-top music videos involving treadmills, drones and Rube Goldberg machines wants to release their latest album "Hungry Ghosts" as DNA.

Lead singer Damian Kulash met with a biochemist at UCLA who successfully converted a book into DNA, so he got the idea to do the same with his music.

In addition to figuring out how to translate the songs into genetic code, there is also the issue of distribution - which they say could simply be a small vial with a few drops of water containing the strands.

"Obviously, it's an artistic gesture and a scientific project, not the most efficient way to actually buy our album," said Kulash.

So it's unlikely that deoxyribonucleic acid will kill the mp3 star anytime soon.

In Russia, plane rides you.

A UTair flight froze to the ground at Igarka airport in Siberia on Tuesday, and passengers had to get out and push the 30-ton aircraft to get it moving again.

One of the men in the video is heard saying: "Real men can plant a tree, build a house, and push a plane," according to the Siberian Times.

The temperatures in the region above the Arctic Circle hit below 52C, and the brakes froze because they used the wrong kind of grease.

Science of the Day: First 3D Printed Object in Space

We aren't quite at Star Trek replicator levels of awesomeness yet, but we're getting there.

This week astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) printed the first 3D object in space.

A private company called Made In Space designed and built the printer for NASA through their Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

The printed piece is actually a part for the printer itself - a faceplate for the extruder.

So what is the significance of all this?

"This 'First Print' serves to demonstrate the potential of the technology to produce replacement parts on demand if a critical component fails in space," said Jason Dunn, Chief Technical Officer for Made In Space.

And maybe to make a fork and knife to eat all that meat the British keep sending up there.
