Horseshoe Bend, Arizona
Located on the Colorado River, Horseshoe Bend is a geological marvel. Here is where the Colorado River, cutting through rock over the course of millions of years, created a wide sweep around this sandstone escarpment. It created a 270° horseshoe-shaped bend in the canyon. This beautiful spot is only 7 miles north of the Grand Canyon.
Wringing out a Washcloth on the ISS
Space Canadian Chris Hadfield continues his quest for interplanetary internet dominance with this incredible experiment submitted by two Nova Scotia high school students: Kendra Lemke and Meredith Faulkner
They wanted to know what would happen if you wrung out a washcloth on the ISS? I won’t spoil the ending for you, but suffice to say it’s about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.
I love how he doesn’t even have to hold the mic. Great job, Kendra and Meredith! For science!
“Thus, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed and a sword will pierce your very soul!” – Luke 2:35
Reasons why octopuses in general are really weird:
- some have three hearts
- and venomous saliva
- and a hidden parrot-like beak
- they can change the color and texture of their skin with incredible ease and speed (they are much better at it than chameleons)
- they have “intelligent arms” that don’t seem to need instructions from the brain to perform certain actions
(this is a giant pacific octopus.)
