See the Future of SpaceX – Super cool video animation of Falcon Heavy liftoff and flight!!

Falcon Heavy | Flight Animation

When Falcon Heavy lifts off later this year, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. Thrust at liftoff is equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft operating simultaneously.

A climate triptych: This is what the melting arctic ice cap looks like!! @wiredscience

Nick Stockton at Wired.com has put together a compilation of 3 different ways to visualize the melting arctic ice cap. Above is one example:

The gallery of strange figures you see above represents the outlines of Arctic sea ice extent month by month from 1979 to the present.

… generated from National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) north pole sea ice extent. The images are arranged in a grid with the years across the top from 1979 to 2014 and the months running down the image from January to December.

ENLIL Model of March 5, 2013 CME – Space weather models combined with real time observations help scientists track CMEs. These images were produced from a model known as ENLIL named after the Sumerian storm god. It shows the journey of a CME on March 5, 2013, as it moved toward Mars.

A March 5, 2013, CME as seen by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory. Combining the information gleaned from such imagery with state-of-the-art models helps scientists better understand how CMEs move toward, and affect, Earth.
