When Kodak Accidentally Discovered A-Bomb Testing

quote [ When Webb investigated the mysterious fogging in 1945, he found that it originated not from the X-ray film itself but the packaging, which he tracked to this particular mill, and specifically, the production run of strawboard from August 6, 1945. ]

Interesting intersections and insisting investigators.

Ecosia - The Search Engine That Plants Trees

quote [ We plant trees where they?re needed most

Our trees benefit people, the environment and local economies. ]

I heard about this on my comic's hosting site. They use the revenue they earn from your searches to plant trees and it doesn't cost you anything! It works like DuckDuckGo and I'm up to about thirty trees!

Scientist Rebellion

Moiré no more

quote [ I didn?t understand it then, and I barely understand it now, which added to the sense that this is some sort of witchcraft that should not be possible. But it isn?t that ? this is pure, old-fashioned math and science ]

You learn some anti-moiré tricks in your life's time, but for printing and scanning people this looks like the Blade Runner zoom come alive.

A bilingual typewriter with a plotter mechanism

quote [ This machine never really caught on, as it was launched right at the transition point of the maturation of Chinese word processing on PCs, becoming obsolete shortly after its introduction. The leaflet claims that it topped the sales charts in Hong Kong and sold 15,000 units over nine months. Of course: it had no competitors on the market. ]

Uh, a beautiful piece of technology.

Twists, turns, thrills and spills: the physics of rollercoasters

quote [ There is much more physics at play than simply gravity and speed when it comes to the thrill of rollercoasters, as Michael Allen discovers ]

Rollercoaster (yeah) ooh ooh

Lab-made mini brains grow their own sets of 'eyes'

quote [ The 'eyes' are the precursors to the retina. ]

We are learning so much so quickly, think about where we've come and where we are now technologically. That's all, I'm just impressed. Nothing profound here.
