Links! On Sunday!
Bonus Curiosity Mars Science Laboratory corner:
- Curiosity's first year on Mars: Where's the science? - short version: they're just getting started.
It's still Sunday here! Just...
Bonus Contributed Linkage corner:
- Oak Island - location of the so-called Money Pit, a presumably natural feature declared by many to be the site of buried treasure, with a range of fantastical origins. Akin to false clues in an ARG, the assumption that the site is special has inexplicably persisted over the years. Fascinating! via Pace
- Experimental Aircraft - Imgur gallery of peculiar aircraft, always a favourite on this 'ere blog-thing. via proogs
- Modern Ruins of Abandoned Detroit - I have a copy of the book this article is based around. It's positively splendid in its dereliction. via 'Beat Darwin'
Just returned from a slightly ridiculous Grand American Road Trip. Of note: free WiFi in cheap motels can be a bit lacking, thus the absence of last week's Sunday Things. The horror! The first one missed ever!
Have some photos instead. I have taken many. More here.
Normal service will resume next week - with some of the links graciously submitted by various readers! Cheers. I need to catch up with the intertubes...
Saturdays are for getting confused about dates and setting the following day's article to appear on Monday. Oops. Anyhow, one brief edit later, here are a few screenshots from a few weeks' escapades in the utterly fantastic Kerbal Space Program. Imagine a cross between Lego, Newtonian physics and the Space Race, all undercut with gloriously silly black humour.
Having a degree in physics and astrophysics? Kind of handy. It is rocket science! Although of a kind where if you understand the principles involved, you need never touch numbers or equations. Truly seat-of-the-trousers flying.
