Rare Moon Hole Photographed

There’s A Hole In The Moon, Dear Liza, Dear Liza

New photos of the moon have revealed the most detailed views yet of a rare hole in the lunar surface — a pit large enough to swallow an entire football field whole.

High-resolution cameras aboard the Japanese Kaguya spacecraft first spotted the irregularly shaped chasm, located in Mare Ingenii on the moon’s southern hemisphere. Now, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken a new, up-close photo of the moon pit from lunar orbit.

Amazing Photos Of Fighter Jets Breaking The Sound Barrier




Many fighter aircraft can travel with the speed of sound which creates a sonic boom. The term sonic boom is commonly used to refer to the shocks caused by the supersonic flight of an aircraft. When it breaks the sound barrier, an incredible ‘vapor cone’ surrounds the aircraft.

Here is a collection of photos of 16 fighter jets breaking the sound barrier and creating vapor cones around them…

Munish Bansal is a proud father of two, with a bit of a photography obsession: he has photographed his children every day for 13 years (so far)! (Pics)

Accountant Munish, 36, from Gillingham, Kent, said: ‘It started when I took a picture of Suman on the day she was born.

‘I did the same the following day, and the day after, and the day after that. Before I knew it, she had turned one and I had 365 images.

11 Extinct Animals That Have Been Photographed Alive


Bubal Hartebeest

The Bubal Hartebeest was a magnificent, tough beast which was once domesticated by the ancient Egyptians as a food source and for sacrificial purposes. The creature was even mentioned in the Old Testament.Although it once roamed throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East, the deep-rooted mythology which surrounded the animal was not enough to save it from European hunters who began hunting them for recreation and meat. The last Bubal Hartebeest was probably a female which died in the Paris Zoo in 1923.
Animals are going extinct at a much higher rate now than through most of the earth’s history. Many species have disappeared since the development of photography. Take a good look, because this is all you’ll see of these eleven species as they were.

The Eyes Have It When It Comes To Face Recognition

The Eyes Have It When It Comes To Face Recognition

Face recognition mechanisms in the brain are specialized to the eyes

Our brain extracts important information for face recognition principally from the eyes, and secondly from the mouth and nose, according to a new study from a researcher at the University of Barcelona. This result, published March 27th in the open-access journal PLoS Computational Biology, was obtained by analyzing several hundred face images in a way similar to that of the brain.

You Can Change Your Appearance With Exercise, But Not Overnight

Fitness Does Not Happen Overnight 

Carl Foster, an exercise physiologist at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, was amused by ads for a popular piece of exercise equipment. Before-and-after photos showed pudgy men and women turned into athletes with ripped bodies of steel. And it all happened after just 12 weeks of exercising for 30 minutes three times a week. Then there was the popular book, with its own before-and-after photos, promoting a program that would totally change your body in six weeks with three 20-minute exercise sessions a week.

X-Ray MacBook

The glowing irradiated inside of an Apple MacBook, as photographed by the curious Jason de Villa… as seen by the TSA every day!

About a week ago, I was in the mood to do something crazy – anything to help pull myself out of the blue funk I had fallen into. I texted my brother the vet to ask if he had an x-ray machine in his office, and what size his film plates were. I told him that I wanted to try and x-ray my laptop, something that had been on my mind ever since I saw an x-ray of an Apple Titanium PowerBook. He said “No problem,” and two days later I was sitting in his office waiting for him to finish minor surgery on a dog.
