Rockets and Octopi

------
Wired Online brought to us a crazy video of rocket testing in:
"SMARAGD Rocket Tests Data and High Speed Video"
Expect the ignition to be loud.



This second video of theirs has quite less shock and awe.  It's still pretty otherworldly.  When the rocket starts to sputter out rhythmically it's almost hypnotizing. 



About the Author/Video Credit: Kristian von Bengtson is a space-architect, former contractor for NASA and co-founder of Copenhagen Suborbitals. 


Onward!



Found on today's posting of Deep Sea News, a definite gem.
One thing's for certain, this guy's crazy about the ocean.  Follow him if this stuff is up your alley!
"The Blanket Octopus"



Video Credit:Can't really be sure on this one unfortunately but you have my thanks!
