A reagent called “Scale” can be used to make mouse brain transparent! Not just a great party trick, but invaluable for brain research.

I hated VHS, and yet I love this nostalgia.

I found my box of old audio cassette last week, but don’t have a player. Luckily I have an old car with a cassette deck. It’s been awesome.

Here is the maths behind Theo Jensen’s Strandbeests.

In the left, the original Jansen’s mechanism with it’s walking curve, and in the right, a simplified version.

An impact crater on a speck of dust. Yep.

Via sirmitchell:

Space is nuts. This is moon dust under a microscope. 

The crater near top left, being only a few thousandths of an inch across, was probably made by a meteoroid only a tenth of a thousandth of an inch in diameter. On the Earth, such micrometeoroids would be slowed to negligible speeds by our atmosphere, and simply float to the surface. But the absence of a lunar atmosphere allows them to hit the surface at tens of thousands of miles per hour.

Got this at the end of last year. Four months in, the population of Robot City is looking good.
