sciencefriday:

NASA engineers want to design a rover wheel that can take on any terrain on Mars.

The sound of a rover riding over a jagged Martian rock is similar to the racket of slowly crunching soda cans. How do we know? NASA engineers have rolled wheels across terrains similar to those that have been found on Mars.

At NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, engineers have constructed an elaborate arena called the Mars Yard, a 21 by 22 meter sand lot filled with obstacles that simulate the Red Planet. This is all to test what makes the rover on the Mars2020 mission physically rove: the wheels.

JPL engineers Patrick DeGrosse and Chris Salvo are working to create rover wheels that can endure the diverse range of terrain on the Red Planet. SciFri visited JPL and witnessed the sights and sounds of rover wheel destruction. Learn more here.

Diseño moderno para las latas de sardinas

by Troy

lata-sardinas-autobus

Parece que la única preocupación de los fabricantes de sardinas en lata es cómo encajar el máximo número de unidades en un espacio reducido. Una imagen que siempre es evocada cuando algún medio de transporte viene lleno a rebosar, especialmente autobuses urbanos, metros, trenes y aviones de aerolíneas low cost.

"Parecemos sardinas en lata" se ha convertido en una expresión muy popular para reflejar las situaciones en las que somos obligados a apretujarnos entre desconocidos, muchos de ellos con una higiene personal alejada de nuestros estándares.

Una agencia de marketing rusa, Brandiziac, ha utilizado ese concepto para modernizar el tradicional empaquetado de estos productos.

Han diseñando un packaging que convierte la lata en un divertido autobús repleto, como no puede ser de otra manera, de sardinas con cara de pocos amigos.

lata-sardinas-autobus-2

El bus está repleto de detalles divertidos. Especialmente el toque marinero del conductor, con gorra de capitán de barco y manejando una rueda de timón en lugar de un volante. También es peculiar el sistema de frenado, en forma de ancla colocada en la parte posterior.

Mad Max Fury Road is the best because it screams in your face “HEY LOOK HERE’S A V8 INTERCEPTOR AND A MASSIVE FUCKING TRUCK COVERED IN SKULLS AND A GUITAR FLAMETHROWER AND BIG ACTION SEQUENCES AND EXPLOSIONS, ISN’T THAT COOL??????” and then it gently takes your shoulder and whispers in your ear “but you know what’s cooler? respecting women & dismantling the patriarchy”

Whitewashing: An American tradition. Hollywood shapes how we are seen and *not* seen. But we don’t have to give them our money and views. Ghost in the Shell and Death Note are more missed opportunities to showcase Asian-American talent. Let’s not watch them.

This is both hilarious and depressing

Fun fact: the blending of idioms or cliches is called a malaphor.

My personal favorite is “We’ll burn that bridge when we get to it.”

I’m rather fond of “It’s not rocket surgery” and “not the sharpest egg in the attic,” but my all-time favourite is, “…until the cows freeze over.”

This is particularly sweet because that wolf almost undoubtedly didn’t have a pack. He was lonely. And then he wasn’t lonely: he had all the weird little squished stunted-development wolves and their weird bipedal not-wolves!

Giant tarantulas keep tiny frogs as pets. Insects will eat the burrowing tarantulas’ eggs - so the spiders protect the frogs from predators, and in return the frogs eat the insects. Source

This has blown my mind for years. It’s so unreal. It’s almost the same exact reason humans and cats started living together.

Tiny frogs are tarantula housecats. A science fact seldom gets to sound that much like meaningless word salad.

This is legit, guys. And I’m excited about it.

Someone needs to draw a tarantula person with a tiny pet housefrog now. Please let this be a thing.

How is this?

This entire post is magic.  And that is so cool how the Tarantula will protect the frog.  :3
