In case you hadn’t heard: It’s cold in the Eastern half of North America. So cold, in fact, that everything surrounding the Niagara Falls has frozen over, creating a mesmerizing winter wonderland. NIAGARA FALLS, ? BY AARON LYNETT #inspo #weather #snow #winter #goals #niagarafalls #canada #travel A post shared by MISC ZINE (@misc.zine) on Jan 1, 2018 at 5:23am PST The frigid temperatures east of the Rocky Mountains have been setting new records. This week, it has been -15 Fahrenheit in Niagara Falls , while Edmonton in Alberta felt like -40 degrees; that’s colder than Mars is right now. When it gets that cold, windows break, electric poles snap and most people try not to head outside, which is probably good because many cars won’t start anyway.

But that doesn’t make the phenomenon any less breathtaking. If you can’t visit Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side to witness the magic yourself, check out these photos from brave visitors.

Tesla to TRIPLE number of Superchargers by end of 2018

Comments Off on Tesla to TRIPLE number of Superchargers by end of 2018

For those who are still giddy over the newly-released Tesla Model 3 , prepare for even more good news. By the end of 2018, Tesla will install three times more superchargers — the plug-in electricity pumps required to charge Tesla batteries — around the world. The news was announced during the Model 3 ’s unveiling. While debuting the Model 3 At the Tesla Factory in Fremont, California, Musk announced that the company is hoping to achieve its first affordably-priced electric vehicle. He then acknowledged that more Superchargers will be required, as the factory will be producing a total of 500,000 Model 3s — an eventual rate of 10,000 cars a week — annually. “By the end of next year, there will be three times as many Superchargers as there are today. So that should really help out a lot,” said Musk. As Inverse reports, there are presently about 6,124 Superchargers around the world. By the end of next year, there will be over 18,000 worldwide. Tesla’s CEO said, “Eventually you’ll be able to go anywhere on Earth” using the Superchargers. Related: BMW to rival the Tesla Model 3 with an all-electric 3 Series Of course, one will still be able to charge their electric vehicle in other nations even if a Supercharger isn’t available. The stations make the task easier, however. This is because Superchargers add 170 miles of range in 30 minutes. Home wall chargers, on the other hand, only add about 26 miles in the same timeframe. Supercharger stations are presently located in North America , Europe, Asia and the Middle East. 889 are presently open for business but in no time at all, thousands more will dot roadways. + Tesla Via Inverse Images via Tesla

Code red aviation alert after Bogoslaf volcano erupts in Alaska

Comments Off on Code red aviation alert after Bogoslaf volcano erupts in Alaska

The highest aviation alert was issued on Saturday after a volcano on Alaska’s Bogoslof Island erupted. As a result of the code “red” alert, pilots were instructed to fly at least 35,000 ft., and possibly as high as 45,000 ft, above the volcano to prevent its fiery ash from melting parts of the plane . According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO), the volcano that erupted is part of the Aleutian Island chain. Not long after a code “red” was issued, it was downgraded to a code “orange.” “We actually went to color code red this afternoon because of numerous lightning detections and increased seismic signals,” said Jeffrey Freymueller of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska. Flights transiting from Asia to North America were most affected. Freymueller added that lightning in the Aleutians is often caused by volcanic plumes. “The combination of lightning and seismic data allowed us to go to red within about half an hour of the start of the eruption,” he said. In total, the eruption lasted for approximately 50 minutes. Related: Iceland’s “Thor” volcano power plant can generate 10X more energy than oil or gas wells Because the eruption is very recent, “Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition,” says a report issued by the Observatory. It went on to say that “additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time.” This is the eighth documented eruption at Bogoslof , which reportedly began its sequence in December, 2016. The last occurred in 1992. Via CNN Images via Pixabay , Mapbox Screenshot
