Art In Science | 2013 Cool Science Image Contest Slideshow | Scientific imagery, of course, is intended to help scientists. It is a critical form of data in many fields and can yield important and sometimes striking insights into nature and the way things work. But the pictures and other images of science can also have remarkable aesthetic qualities that the non-scientist can appreciate. #science #art #photography #geekiscool #research #news #justlearned #knowledgefix #whatshot

How to Make Almost Anything | By Neil Gershenfeld. In recent decades, the world has been rocked by revolutions in the digitization of computation and communication. Now the physical world is being digitized, thanks to new technologies that can turn data into things and things into data. Digital fabrication will let people build custom home furniture, living organs out of cells, and drones that can fly out of a printer; #science fiction is becoming industrial fact. #tech #news #articles

Why Rudolph's nose is red - In the arctic, reindeer have evolved to keep warm - but like all animals, sometimes they need to cool down. Unlike humans, they cannot sweat, so have to use their nose as a heat exchanger. #Science #Christmas #nature #Knowledgetv #Sciencetv #documentary

The NASA Scientist Who Answers Your #2012 Apocalypse Emails | In his day job, Dr. David Morrison is the senior scientist at NASA's #Astrobiology Institute in the Ames Research Center in California. There he specializes in asteroid impact, terrestrial defense from same, planetary exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life. The asteroid 2410 Morrison was named in his honor because "his #research into the infrared radiometric properties of asteroids has been fundamental in revealing.

Scientists read dreams: Nature | Scientists have learned how to discover what you are #dreaming about while you #sleep. A team of researchers led by Yukiyasu Kamitani of the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan, used functional neuroimaging to scan the brains of three people as they slept, simultaneously recording their brain waves using electroencephalography (EEG). Researchers in Japan can predict certain features of dreams by looking at the brain activity. #Science

Cooking Feeds a Growing Brain; A Whale Trying to Sound Like a Human - #Technology #linguistics Discovered: Cooking helped humans evolve large brains; beluga vocalizations strikingly similar to human speech; how the dung beetle keeps its cool; measuring consciousness. Raw food diets evolutionarily inferior. Celebrities like Amanda Seyfried might tout the slimming benefits of a raw food diet, but neuroscientists aren't impressed by raw food's evolutionary effects on the human brain. #Science

Famous Women Mathematicians and Scientists | Historically, women interested in science and mathematics have faced challenges that their male counterparts did not face. These challenges vary from generation to generation, but they are still with us to some degree. However, there are women throughout #history who have overcome those challenges and can hopefully inspire us today. #knowledgefix #Justlearned

First-Person Footage From Felix Baumgartner’s Edge-Of-Space Skydive | Here’s some amazing footage first-person footage of Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking skydive from the stratosphere. Yesterday, the daredevil successfully broke the speed of sound (at around 833 MPH) after jumping from 24 miles above the earth. Redbull has yet to release their own official footage, which is likely to be even more amazing. #records

Unprecedented: Amateur astronomers discover a planet with four suns George Dvorsky Two volunteer astronomers have confirmed the existence of a Neptune-like planet that has four suns, making it the first quadruple star system ever discovered. The planet, which is 5,000 light years away from Earth, closely orbits one pair of stars, which in turn forms a unit that revolves around a second pair at a distance of around 1,000 AU. #universe #astronomy #knowledgefix #Justlearned
