This week in images: beautiful pictures from space--and a picture of a rocket that didn't quite make it. Snail therapy and pink leopards. Robots made from vacuum cleaners and a picture of London, illegally taken from the top of the unfinished Shards of Glass skyscraper. Click through, look, enjoy, wonder.
From the amazing Tungurahua volcano spewing molten rock and ash to a stunning concept motorcycle to a cargo ship smashing into the rocky beach of Wales, this week's roundup of the most amazing science and tech images is an excellent one (though we couldn't find any science-and-Passover imagery, to our surprise). And the weekend itself is shaping up to be excellent! So go enjoy it! Wait, no, look through this gallery first. Then enjoy it!
This week's Baarbarian illustration reminds us that just as last week we were up in the air, we've spent the last five days with our heads under the sea. Not as far under as James Cameron, but, you know, nobody's ever been that far under, by themselves, at least. And...segue...have a nice weekend!
A well-rounded lineup of amazing imagery for you guys this week: there's an elephant with a phone and a monkey with a cold (animal requirements: fulfilled). There's a shot of the space shuttle in space, and one of the SpaceX capsule on the ground (space requirements: fulfilled). There are perfumed 3-D printed shoes and ultraviolet pictures of faraway galaxies and many more. Go look! With your eyes!
Good stuff this week! There's a baby elephant face-planting into a beach, there's a 3-D printable set of connectors that'll connect Lego to K'Nex (or any combination of childhood building toys), there's a tray full of eyeballs, and, as always, pretty space pics. Enjoy your weekend!
It's a gloomy March day outside, but this week's image roundup is a particularly cheerful one. Look at that colorful, wet little guy up top! Also this week: Japanese tourists try to drive to an island without the benefit of a bridge or tunnel and get stuck in the mud, a man buys an iPad and is applauded for his initiative, and the phrase "hot defensive bee ball" is accompanied by an image that will haunt us at least until next week. Enjoy the weekend!
This week's image roundup includes laser rainbows, cars exploding, a bat with the weirdest nose we have ever seen on an animal we didn't drunkenly draw ourselves as part of a board game, edible silk, and a moth that (if we irresponsibly exaggerate to the point of sheer fiction, abandoning all pretense of scientific accuracy or objective reporting) can and will literally eat you whole. Enjoy!
It's rainy/snowy/gross outside the PopSci headquarters in New York. But through the grey gloom, one little boy has given us the will to make it through the week. We call him Chomp Boy. Chomp away, Chomp Boy. You enjoy that berry. Enjoy it for all of us. As tribute, we've given him the prime spot in a particularly excellent roundup of the week's most amazing images--exploding stars, x-rayed eels, and rockets screaming through the northern lights are all to come.
Happy Valentine's Week! Have a space rose. Or a cube that tells you the weather outside by touch, that's a good gift, right? Or the tiniest most adorable chameleon ever found, or...you know what, just click through and check out the most amazing images of the week. They are, as the headline suggests, amazing.
There are lots of amazing images in this week's roundup; there's the likely discovery of a massive former ocean on Mars, there's a purple squirrel, there's an incredible augmented reality project, and lots more. But we can't stop looking at--and thinking about--the noble Cyber Woman With A Corn.
This week's Images of the Week gallery includes a cocktail that looks, according to the person who made it, like an "alien brain hemorrhage," we've got the other side of that amazing "blue marble" picture of Earth, we've got a handmade net fort we are dying to play in, and we've got internal organs made out of elegantly rolled paper. It's a good week, is all we're saying.
This week's image roundup is a particularly good one: the best "blue marble" picture we've ever seen, a video of the aurora resulting from the biggest solar storm in seven years, a foldable car, a stunning green-energy art installation, blah, blah, blah. All great. But what we really want to talk about is that ultra-creepy snub-nosed monkey, or, as we've christened it, the Hell-Monkey of Doom. Feel free to describe in detail exactly how much this picture (and a Google image search for the snub-nosed monkey) gave you the shivers.
We've got a delightfully plant-and-animal-heavy Images roundup for you this week, like newly rediscovered monkeys, unbelievably beautiful polar invertebrates (above), gorgeous orchids, and more. Of course, there are also some pretty space pics, because we love them, and you love them, and everyone else loves them, and a whole lot more.
This week, in the midst of the Consumer Electronics Show, the Detroit Auto Show, and the 219th annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society, we were inundated with pictures. The most exciting gadgets, the hottest cars, and the most humbling, beautiful space pics all showed up this week. But that doesn't mean we can't also take time and look at adorable Japanese robot...things. Or frogs so tiny they can comfortably hang out on the surface of a dime.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
