    WAIT WHAT

    I’m going to just sit here and chuckle at all the people who didn’t check the source on this/realize what it was. :D

    Portraits in Infrared, Visible and Ultraviolet light
    — Nick Spiker

    The Melanin in the freckles absorbs UV-light very well, making them show up black in the photo. Same thing is going on with sunscreen. You may notice the eyes are darker in UV light at well, another protection mechanism to help prevent UV damage. Melanin doesn’t absorb Infrared wavelengths as much — and IR-light penetrates further into the skin than UV — so the freckles/imperfections will show up less when you select for only those wavelengths in the photo.

Photo: Frank and Louie the two-faced cat A Massachusetts cat with two faces has become the world’s longest surviving so called “janus” feline at 12 years of age. The cat, who is named Frank and Louie, has two mouths, two noses and three eyes. Frank and Louie have one brain, so the faces react in unison. (David Niles/Handout/Reuters)


But we still love you.

    physicsphysics:

    Love famous physicists? (of course you do!)

    Love classic rock?

    Love T-shirts?

    If you answered yes to any or all of these, you might want to check out where these designs are for sale at Monsters of Grok. 

    If only for the Tesla/Edison

    "

    Some of these science-journalism cliches are now familiar to all of us. Every fossil find has to be a “missing link.” If a connection can be made to human evolution, no matter how far removed from our tiny branch, then that connection will be pointed out. Every advance in virology might someday lead to a “cure for the common cold.” Similarly, any biological advance with the slightest possible connection will someday lead to a “cure for cancer.”  There is also the fairly recent addition – any advance in metamaterials will lead to the development of a “Harry Potter-like invisibility cloak.” The goal is to get the phrases in quotations into the headline of the article at all costs.

    I believe there is another similar science journalism cliche in the making – relating any computing advance to the development of artificial intelligence or “brain-like” computing. The connection is not always unreasonable, but the catch phrases are key.

    The Skin Gun.

    Warning: This video is graphic in nature.

    Regardless it’s worth seeing. The development in science and health is astounding.

    This is amazing!

    I don’t know if I’m being over sensitive today but it made me cry. Okay, I have a visceral fear of burns and fire but this is wonderful anyway. If you are sensitive to this type of things, the images are pretty shocking, but it’s worth watching.

    I guess this is the typical kind of things that makes me love the human race a bit more from time to time.

    Why in living fuck does this not have more notes. REBLOG THIS PEOPLE. THIS. IS. THE. FUTURE
