This ~Week On Internet – 16.9.11

I’ve missed you, Internet.

Some amazing / concerning news about the state of the modern scientific method;
News from NASA – the Space Launch System;
Some beautiful paper sculptures;
A very thought-provoking post on feminism, religion and a touch of internet politics;
A huge infographic on the history and future of the universe;
Student protesters have occupied the University of Chile, and some friends of mine talked their way inside;
The astronomer who found the planet made of diamond compares his experiences with what a climate scientist might expect;
Swedish researchers claim that bio-sausages are 6 months away (and if you don’t want to pay-money-then-sign-in to New Scientist, you can find it here);
Ohio man arrested for alleged sex act with inflatable raft in alley;
… and the wikipedia category of Mysteries has kept me up waaaay past my bedtime.


Tesla-cize!

(The other spheres are pretty awesome too – the Adventure Sphere (Rick) and the Space Sphere!)


Stick with this one:

Meanwhile, in Soviet Russia, incrimination touches you!

I love this song!
