The deepest hole ever made

Progress in Google's self-driving car project.

This is the kind of stuff that really fascinates me, and I and no idea this thing even existed. It’s a miles deep hole that took over 20 years to dig and while technically they didn’t meet their goal, we were still able learn some interesting things about our planet that we didn’t know before.

Progress in Google's self-driving car project.

Here’s a great look at how far Google has come with their self-driving car technology. I had a hard time thinking the car could do much more than follow lanes and look out for stop lights, but to see how it analyzes and identifies every object around it is pretty amazing. If they can make this technology completely flawless, there’s no question that our roads would ultimately be much safer. It’s just a matter of whether Google can develop something that is completely immune to technical glitches, which I imagine is the biggest problem they’ll face.

Shakespeare in its original dialect

Shakespeare in its original dialect

It doesn’t seem quite right that some of the most important literature we have is viewed from such a modern perspective. Obviously people still get value out of just reading something as it makes sense to them, but there’s no doubt that some of that value gets lost without the context of the original language or setting. That’s why this theatre has started putting on Shakespeare performances in the original accent they would have been performed in. Suddenly these lines we’ve been studying for hundreds of years have new rhymes and sometimes different meanings.

SpaceX full simulated demonstration.

SpaceX full simulated demonstration

I’ve posted a few videos of some small SpaceX tests before but I have yet to see a full demonstration of the sequence of events from launch to retrieval. Obviously this is just an animation but I think this makes it pretty clear that SpaceX can seriously advance our methods of getting in to space on a repeated basis as long as they continue to be successful in their development.

Lava Crater Collapses

Watching this video it’s hard to imagine that this actually took place on our planet. We can modernize our lives and build all the sky scrapers we want but it doesn’t change the fact that this planet is a constantly evolving rock that we’re just lucky enough to be able to survive on.
