It's been so cold recently so why not try and freeze some things! Night Hawk In Light decided to freeze some giant bubbles in the cold.
Wispy shreds of frozen soap that look like plastic.
This newly released video has developed quite the controversy. The NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies has created this short clip that visualizes the warming of Earth over the past 60 years. Supporters of the Global Warming theory feel that the video is solid proof of a dangerous trend while skeptics argue that 60 years is too short of a time period to fully understand climate change.
Scientists recently discovered that dogs prefer aligning their bodies with the Earth's magnetic field when relieving themselves.
According to a study published in Frontiers in Zoology, 70 dogs out of 37 different breeds were observed taking care of business over 7,400 times (sounds like a fun job...). The dogs showed a preference of positioning themselves with the north-south axis. Results of the study found that they not only prefer facing the north-south direction, but also deliberately avoid aligning themselves in an east-west position.
Who knew your dog would come in handy as a compass every time it drops a deuce? I guess that gives one more reason to call them "Man's Best Friend."
Scientists discovered the message in a bottle while researching a glacier in Northern Canada.. The letter was written in 1959 by a young geologist asking whoever finds the bottle to please measure the distance between it and the nearby glacier and then send the findings to he and his colleague at the provided address. Unfortunately neither he nor his partner survived to receive the requested data.
However, the scientists who found the bottle did make the measurements: it was 333 feet away. In 1959 the bottle was only four feet away. The change in distance is due the the shrinking of the glacier over the years.
