Share Yay, Science! Now Go To Mars I don’t pretend to understand physics, although I do have an affinity toward the apparent relativism and “multiple choice” nature of the quantum world. A couple years ago I posted when physicists took the first photograph of atoms spinning. I have no insight into this image of a [...]

ShareThis really is the coolest thing ever. Dr. Patrick Feister of Indiana University (Sound Media Historian) has the coolest job in the world. He chronicles, preserves, and in this case restores, the oldest audio recordings on earth. It’s what I wanted to do when I was young man, and went to the Berklee School Of [...]
ShareHail Ants Mohamed Babu Shot Some Great Photos These images are all over teh interwebs, because they’re so awesome. Photographer Mohamed Babu, of Solent News, created this tableaux of chromatic brilliance, after his wife noticed that, after drinking milk, household ants would turn white. Babu then set up these colored drops of sugar water, and [...]
ShareHappy Day of Thor, Youdopia. This image is the first photo of a person. He’s getting a shoeshine, so he was fairly still long enough for the ten minute exposure to capture him. Neato? Yes. Coolest Thing Ever? Yes. Thank you, Peta Pixel for the awesome story behind this image.
ShareI loved them pictures what come from space. This pic was taken within the .86 second transit of the International Space Station across the face of our sun. You earthlings call it Sol. Click the pic to see the work of the great photographer who took this image. Peep.
Share I think I’m in love with a gas giant, Youdopia. I know I keep posting pics of space, and Enceladus, but I’m constantly amazed at the beauty. The Cassini probe just keeps taking amazing images. It’s so cool that we have little robots out there, sending information about our celestial neighbors. I think it’s [...]
Share Sergey Larenkov is a Russian photographer who has taken photographs of Berlin, Prague, and Vienna, from the end of World War Two, and blended them seamlessly with pictures of the same places today. They’re brilliant, Youdopia. Artistically, it’s a brilliant idea, and it turns out that the effects are a bit haunting. I see [...]
Share Happy Friday, Youdopia. Viernes es el dia méjor. This photo has quite a provenance. Daily Grail found it on Kottke.org. He, in turn, found it via clusterflock, who in turn referenced the original slideshow from Life Magazine’s site. The story behind this is that a cub photographer from Life went to Princeton when Einstein [...]
Share Happy Birthday, Jimmy Page! Today is a National Holiday in Youdopia. None shall toil. Jimmy is 66 today. You may be surprised that I am a fan of Led Zeppelin, and Jimmy Page. It’s true. Jimmy has written/compiled a photographic autobiography which is being published by Genesis Publications. They are an exquisitely wonderful publisher. [...]
ShareI must be getting old, Youdopians. The younger Mojozoso would definitely think this lego photo recreation of the execution of a Viet Cong prisoner (the famous Eddie Adams photo) was sick and twisted, and kinda funny. I t generally don’t really w00t that much over lego stuff, or anyone who fucks with a Barbie and [...]
