Watch a 58 year time lapse video of an expanding Nova

This is incredibly beautiful and captures the raw power of immensity of a star gone nova. In 1901, the star GK Persei, 1,300 Lights Years from Earth, exploded. Images of the remnant (Nova Persei 1901) by the Isaac Newton Telescope and the Nordic Optical Telescope in Spain spliced together allow a 3-D model to be created.

Dwarf planet Eris may reveal quantum scale gravity

Dwarf planet Eris may have something big in store for researchers, namely the killing of dark matter and dark energy theories. Galaxies appear to have a stronger gravitational influence than can be explained by a visible analysis, this has led to both the dark matter and dark energy theories to try to explain these anomalies.

Watch a chainsaw wielding robot carve a stool out of a block of wood

This is pretty cool, what happens when you take an industrial robot arm, add a chainsaw and some creative programming? Your shop teacher replacement! Actually you get a pretty good furniture maker. This creation has some precise cutting going on and its pretty fast at it too.  So sit back and watch this robot carve out a usable stool out of a block of wood.

300 Million year old machinery found in Russia

This is a very interesting claim, it would seem that a piece of "machined" aluminum has been found in Vladivostok Russia. It would appear to be a part of a gear rail, but who made it? Is this thing a really 300 million year old machined part or is this literally a freak event of nature?

And now, almost 3 minutes of Segway fails

Hey, the Segway is a remarkable product, that`s still looking for a real use. Like come on, do you know anyone who actually bought one of these things? Admittedly I`ve never tried one but here`s a video of some people who have... and failed miserably.

These are some cars from Mad Max 4: Fury Road

Feast your eyes on some the vehicles that will be seen in Mad Max 4: Fury Road.  Apparently someone was on vacation in Namibia and stumbled upon the set, lucky them. So have a look, there`s no way mistaking these vehicles for anything other than a Mad Max movie.

This is one crazy Terminator mashup up from Ghana

I`m guessing the title of this one is 12:00 1,2 and 3. It seems to be some kind of cyborg street fighter mashup, but you know what, I can`t take my eyes off it. Kudos to being able to watch part 1,2 and 3 all at once if you can that is. Peter Jackson should take note.

A real working laser firing Iron Man gauntlet

This one`s pretty cool, here`s a completely handmade and fan made Iron Man gauntlet with a functioning laser strong enough to pop a balloon and probably damage your eyes too. Very cool DIY project, just don`t ask for any schematics or tutorials. Hope there`s more on the way.
