New Colorful Picture of Mars Landscape

New from HiRISE, another picture of the surface of Mars:
"Layered Yardangs"
"This observation shows terrain on the floor of a large, degraded crater. Many sharp ridges are visible across the image, all of them aligned in a similar direction. There are patches of dark sand in the low areas between the ridges and on the ridge slopes." -Anjani Polit
Click to enlarge.  This is my current computer wallpaper.  Nice and colorfully detailed.

The Quantum World

Well, he outdid himself yet again.  Symphony of Science just released a new song/video today,
"The Quantum World"
The music is top notch, his best yet.  The topic is my favorite thus far.  His choice of speakers is perfect, heavy on Feynman and Brian Cox, two of my favorite scientists.
This made my day.



You can download the mp3 on his site, the link below.
