This Real-Time Visual Shows How Slow Light Travels in the Vastness of Space

In this brilliant real-time visualization, we start with our planet to grasp just how fast light travels (300,000 km per second/186,000 miles per second). However, things quickly get mind-boggling when we use nearby objects in space like the moon, mars, and sun. The visualization was created by Dr. James O’Donoghue who is a Planetary Scientist at the Japanese Space Agency, JAXA. Before that, the good doc worked at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. I love how elegantly a simple visualization can explain concepts like these. Original Article : HERE ; The Ultimate Survival Food: The Lost Ways

These Infinity Cube Lamps are Incredible (15 Photos)

Named after 19th-century physicist and optics pioneer Augustin-Jean Fresnel, Sean Augustine March’s Fresnel Lamps are a sight to behold. Made from dichroic glass, LEDs pass through metal particles embedded in the glass of the lamp’s double-box construction. The lamps come in two sizes, Major (10″ cube) and Minor (5″ cube), and are available for purchase through March’s website. If the explanation above didn’t make sense, perhaps a gallery and some video would help do these functional sculptures justice. For more, be sure to check out Sean’s work on Instagram.
