Hey, you know C.J. Wilson, pitcher for the Angels?

Well, I was reading this article at YahooAutos about the wild-super-awesome paint job on his McLaren P1 (cerberus pearl polychromatic paint, btw). The article had a link to more photos of Mr. Wiiiiilson's car. The link goes to a photo archive of pics Mr. Wilson has taken during the off season(s).

Mr. Wilson is a fairly awesome photographer.

Scientists resurrect extinct 700 year old virus from frozen caribou poop.

Great. They brought back an old virus and tested it out and it successfully infected a modern day organism in a lab environment.

Why would you do this?

As Arctic ice melts faster with climate change, it could release ancient viral particles into the environment—some of which could remain infectious, the team warns.

Because understanding this new virus in laboratory conditions allows us to learn more in a safer, controlled condition. Indeed, there are gazillions of viruses out there, we live in and amongst them literally all the time. Learning about this one in the lab doesn't mean we haven't already been exposed to it, we just know more about it. Also, "successfully infected" means transferred from one organism to another. "Infected" has emotional connotations that don't apply in the context of the lab experiment.

Additionally, this fellow does this as a hobby, finding new viruses. Apparently there's a lab coat for every petri dish too.

Best image yet of planets being formed.

This image was made by ALMA, an array of radio telescopes in Chile. Those dark rings in the cloud are areas around the star where matter is clumping together into planets, pulling more nearby matter out of the cloud disk.

Quote:
Once these planetary bodies acquire enough mass, they dramatically reshape the structure of their natal disk, fashioning rings and gaps as the planets sweep their orbits clear of debris and shepherd dust and gas into tighter and more confined zones.

The new ALMA image reveals these striking features in exquisite detail, providing the clearest picture to date of planet formation. Images with this level of detail were previously only seen in computer models and artist concepts. ALMA, living up to its promise, has now provided direct proof that nature and theory are very much in agreement.

Oh they're really good! Love the wifi pizza slices.



[eta] Oh god, the suicidal bunnies. First couple were mildly amusing, but as you go through them they just get funnier and funnier.

This site featured in an article in one of today's newspapers.

Curiosity got the better of me so I had a look.

The site describes itself as 'an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard'.

Forgive me if it has been mentioned before.
