Comments Off on NASA video sheds light on the dark side of the moon

Ever wonder what lurks on the dark side of the moon? Now you can see it like never before. The hemisphere of the moon that always faces away from Earth was largely uncharted until 1959, when a Soviet space probe photographed it. Now NASA has provided a whole new view of the moon’s far side, via a computer-generated video that shows the phases of the moon as seen from the side facing away from Earth.

Comments Off on Hovering Rescue Robot Can Crash Into Obstacles and Keep On Flying

A new flying robot built to withstand mid-air crashes could play a key role helping disaster victims. The great minds at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne created a flying spheroid robot that can simply bounce off obstacles and keep on moving to deliver goods or aid in search and rescue efforts. A flexible frame allows the robot to navigate incredibly complex environments that could result from a building collapse without the need for delicate sensors.

Comments Off on Adorable Dinosaur Nightlight Uses Algae To Glow In The Dark!

Is your little one afraid of the dark? Or are they just crazy about anything dinosaur-related? This adorable dinosaur-shaped nightlight from California-based company  Yonder Biology  might be the perfect friend to get them used to sleeping alone. Made from polyethylene plastic, the dinosaur-shaped container houses dinoflagellate algae. This is just one of many types of algae with bio-luminescent properties, which is a fancy way of saying it glows in the dark. Because the algae is a living organism, Dino Pets actually depend on their owners to survive. Daily sunlight is a must, and special dino food is added once every 1-3 months to keep the algae happy. The Dino Pet is currently gathering funding on Kickstarter. Keep reading to find out how you can nab one!

Comments Off on DIY Hugelkultur: How Build Raised Permaculture Garden Beds

Although the term “hugelkultur” was coined by German horticulturalists Hans Beba and Herman Andra in the late 1970s, the actual technique has probably been used for thousands of years. Roughly translated into “hill culture”, this method consists of creating raised garden beds by covering rotting wood with compost and soil, and then planting into them. If you think about it, it’s really just recreating the effects of forest floor decomposition—just in one’s own garden space. Learn how to make your own after the jump!
