While I was finishing work on Sunborn, I saved up a bunch of links to interesting new developments in science and whatnot. Time to send some your way before I lose them.
- Astronomers have discovered dark caves, or holes in Mars! They might be a place where life could be lurking, sheltered from the sun.
- In one of the more breathtaking views I’ve seen lately, Saturn was caught emerging from behind the Moon. It looks like a close neighbor, but really it’s over a billion kilometers away.
- In a series of amazing images of another kind, artist Chris Jordan shows us profound views of what our consumption of products, as a society, really looks like. It’s called Running the Numbers.
- Finally, from New Scientist, a couple more news items caught my attention: a new theoretical approach to teleportation (no, I can’t say I understand it, but…), and a new dino discovery, Gigantoraptor, a feathered dino big enough to face off with a T-Rex.
