Philosophy, Art & Science ambigram by John Langdon.

Ambigrams are words that can be read equally well from more than one point of view. Most of John Langdon’s ambigrams read the same when turned upside down, or rotated 180 degrees.

astrodidact:

Our sense of scale tends to adjust to circumstances. So when we think about comets it is easy to compare them with other astronomical objects. In which case comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, just 3km wide, sounds tiny.

However, as you can see in the image above, things look rather different…

How a Renewable Energy Project in Denmark Created a Balance of Power | People for Smarter Cities
Making the transition from worldwide dependence on fossil fuel to greater use of renewable energy is challenged by the intermittent nature of renewable resources: The wind isn’t always blowing; the sun isn’t always shining. To facilitate the integration of clean energy sources, countries and cities are seeking better ways to store and distribute electricity. Essential in this effort is getting people to adapt their consumption behavior rather than expecting central generation plants to bear complete responsibility for balancing supply and demand. Read how a smart-grid project in Denmark is putting power back into the hands of the community.

Celebes crested macaque Selfie

In 2014, considerable discussion of copyright issues was generated by a “selfie” photograph taken by a Celebes crested macaque.

A photographer left his camera unattended in a national park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. A female crested black macaque monkey got ahold of the camera and took a series of pictures, including some self-portraits. The pictures were featured in an online newspaper article and eventually posted to Commons. We received a takedown request from the photographer, claiming that he owned the copyright to the photographs. We didn’t agree, so we denied the request. - wikimedia

Llaima by Ismael Cañete

Llaima is one of Chile’s most active volcanoes and has frequent but moderate eruptions. Llaima’s activity has been documented since the 17th century, and consists of several separate episodes of moderate explosive eruptions with occasional lava flows. The last major eruption occurred in 1994.

An eruption on January 1, 2008 forced the evacuation of hundreds of people from nearby villages. A column of smoke approximately 3000 m high was observed. An amateur caught the early eruption phase on video. The volcanic ash expelled by Llaima travelled east over the Andes into Argentina. Ash fall was recorded in the area of Zapala, Neuquén Province, and forced the cancellation of flights to and from Presidente Perón Airport near the city of Neuquén. On July 2, 2008, another eruption resulted in evacuation of 40 people from a 15 km exclusion zone.
