Comments Off on Denmark just broke its own wind power record for the second year in a row

In Denmark , the wind is strong and the people are smart. They must be, because Denmark just beat its own wind power generation record—again. According to a new report issued last week, wind power now makes up 42.1 percent of total electricity consumption in the country, which is the highest share anywhere in the world. Energinet , the agency responsible for Denmark’s power grids, released the final figures for 2015 after tallying up all of the wind hours for the year. Experts say the increase over the previous year’s energy generation means Denmark is on target to reach its future goals for renewable energy.

The Russian Elektro-L weather satellite sits 25,000 miles above the Indian Ocean, where it creates an astonishing 121 megapixel image of the Earth every 30 minutes. James Tyrwhitt-Drake from the University of Victoria in Canada has used these images to create a 4K timelapse video of our planet, and the result is pretty hypnotic.

Whiteclouds Realizes Elon Musk’s Futuristic Hyperloop Train as a 3D Printed Model

Comments Off on Whiteclouds Realizes Elon Musk’s Futuristic Hyperloop Train as a 3D Printed Model

Last week, Elon Musk  revealed conceptual plans for the Hyperloop , a solar-powered high-speed train that would transport passengers at speeds of up to 700 mph between Los Angeles and San Francisco. While it will probably be a long time before anyone attempts to build something as ambitious as the Hyperloop, one 3D printing outfit named Whiteclouds  fabricated a model version of the air blasting train in just 24 hours. The model itself is pretty neat because it gives us a first non-rendered look at the Hyperloop cabin, complete with chairs, the elevated transport tubes supported by pillars, and even a mock-up of a station.

Cordials image via Shutterstock All over the northern hemisphere, produce has plumped up gorgeously on vines, branches, and stalks everywhere, and will be making its way into jars and freezers as well as eager mouths. Some will be dried, some will be added to baked goods, and still others might find their way into vats to be fermented into alcoholic beverages. There’s a splendid, tasty way to harness some of the flavors this season has to offer, and that is to make cordials out of berries and herbs from your garden or local farmer’s market.
