“Aliens should always be the very last hypothesis you consider," one astronomer told the Atlantic, "but this looked like something you would expect an alien civilization to build."
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I love this story. Genius extraterrestrials harnessing their sun. What else might they have learned about natural science? Must visit. Will we find El Dorado or the uninhabitable wasteland?

The Mysterious Stone Spheres Of Costa Rica | Amusing Planet

The Mysterious Stone Spheres Of Costa Rica | Amusing Planet | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

In the 1930s while clearing the Costa Rican jungle for banana plantations, employees of the United Fruit Company began uncovering large stone spheres buried in the forest floor. Almost immediately, the mysterious spheres became prized lawn ornaments, ending up on the front yards of government buildings, homes of wealthy buyers and fruit company executives throughout Costa Rica. Many spheres were broken in transit, and others were purposely dynamited by treasure hunters in search of hidden gold. By the time authorities intervened, dozens of stones were destroyed. Over the next several decades around 300 stones were unearthed mostly in the Diquis Delta region. The spheres range in size from a few centimeters to over 2 meters in diameter, and weigh up to 15 tons. Some remain pristine in the original places of discovery, but many others have been relocated or damaged due to erosion, fires and vandalism.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I love archeological stuff like this and the science fiction ideas it immediately conjures in my mind. "You majesty, those idiots in the last space ship left their ballast for us to clean up." "Not to worry, my vassal, we'll just leave it and know-it-alls in the future will use those giant alien turds for lawn ornaments."

Aliens Are Enormous, Science Suggests

According to a new study, humans are probably smaller than most other intelligent beings, if they exist.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

For my science fiction fan friends: The real question is will their hands be more complex than ours to help explain their even greater intelligence? On the other hand, if we humans are so damn smart, why do we make such a mess in our own nest?

10 Amazing Sculptures Made of Typewriters - ODDEE | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Taking vintage typewriters and turning them into sculptures without using any kind of glue, welding or soldering may sound impossible, but not for Jeremy Mayer who has created these amazing typewriter sculptures by using cold assembly methods.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

As a writer, I'm always intrigued by stories about old writing implements. This set of sculptures blew me away. Something from Steampunk or  SciFi. Got to love it.
