Saturn Fly-By

5.6k Saturn Cassini Photographic Animation from stephen v2 on Vimeo.

Animated from thousands of still photographs, this virtual fly-by is a preview of an IMAX film in the works. Each image comes from the Cassini-Huygens Orbiter, launched in conjunction with a Titan probe of the same name in 1997 and transmitting stunning visuals since 2004. This one goes out to all of our space-ninjas; it’s far more difficult to hear or see a ninja coming in space, btw.

Ancestral Bridge?

A pair of fossils from a South African cave have scientists both excited and puzzled. Scientists say the fossils — an adult female and a juvenile — could be the long-sought transition between ape-like ancestors and the first humans.

The bones belong to creatures related to the famous Lucy fossil found in Ethiopia in the 1970s, but their owners lived more recently — just 2 million years ago.

The reason for the excitement? Ask anthropologists what they dream about, and many will tell you it’s the fossil of the last pre-human ancestor that led directly to us. Nobody’s found it, and any who claim to usually get publicly whacked by their peers #Read the story

Going Barefoot

Bare feet, they say, is best for the body: better for posture and better for the foot in all its muscled complexity. Bare feet may also be better for the brain, which especially intrigues me. Bare feet, the theory goes, send lots of stimulating information to the brain. Shoe-covered feet have comparatively little to say to the brain causing nervous-system atrophy. (Source)
