What does the universe look like? How about the sun, moon, planets, and stars? These are probably question that humans have been asking themselves ever since we first looked up at the sky. A new book, Cosmigraphics: Picturing Space Through Time, looks at the imaginative variety of ways that people have answered these questions throughout…
Check out the latest hit at Japanese parties: $5,000 latex dolls that pour drinks from their nipples when you squeeze their boobs. It looks disturbing. What's going to be next, Japan? Male and female android fountains wandering around parties serving drinks from their lower naughty bits? But of course.
Artur Coelho's insight:
creepy old men squeezing robotic breasts. how ballardian.
Apollo didn’t die; it was killed. The Apollo Program might have continued for many years, evolving constantly to achieve new goals at relatively low cost. Instead, programs designed to give Apollo a future beyond the first lunar landing began to feel the brunt of cuts even before Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon. By…
In 1905, a small tribe from the Philippines appeared at Coney Island as a "human exhibit." Journalist Claire Prentice chronicles their experiences in her latest book, "The Lost Tribes of Coney Island," which we've excerpted here.
From 1967 until 1973 NASA employed the services of Raymond Loewy, a legendary figure in the design world. Loewy's firm produced over 3,000 designs for NASA during this time.

The country's intensifying efforts to redraw maritime borders have its neighbors, and the U.S., fearing war. But does the aggression reflect a government growing in power—or one facing a crisis of legitimacy?
We've already seen impressive footage of the first ever carrier drone jet launch, the X-47B. But nothing comes close to this short documentary, with extraordinary photography, edition, and sound design that make for an amazing cinematic experience. I wish all aviation shorts were this elegant and immersive.
The last decade has seen some pretty awesome looking warships hit waters around the globe. On the "blue water" side of things the Star Wars looking Zumwalt Class and the minimalist art-like Lafayette Class were clearly designed with stealth in mind. Yet the "brown water" is where the most exotic vessels roam, and this is precisely where the X3K was born to fight.
Planes first appeared over a century ago, but they've changed considerably since then. What hasn't changed, however, is their role in controlling the air, striking, reconnaissance, and mobility — the roots of which go back back to the first World War.
First discovered more than 100 years ago off the remote island of Antikythera in Southern Greece, the wreck includes statues, jewelry, and a complex astronomical mechanism. This past month, a new team returned to the site.
Mars One may have taken us by surprise when the non-profit organization boldly announced that it would put colonists on Mars in the 2020s. We were even more amazed when legions of amateur astronauts signed up for a one-way ticket to the red rock. However, MIT students believe the effort, in its current form, is doomed to fail.
Finally! HP did what everyone but its CEO and Board thought inevitable: They spun off the commoditized PC and printing businesses. This is an opportunity to look deeper into HP’s culture for roots of today’s probably unsolvable problems.
With a population of 23 million and growing, Beijing is dealing with a major housing shortage.
