NASA spots 5 volcanoes erupting at the same time in Russia

Remote, cold, rugged, and fiedy – that’s the Kamceatka Peninsula for you! Out of all the 1,550 volcanoes that have erupted in the recent geologic past, 113 are found on Kamchatka. Of those, 40 Kamceatkan volcanoes are active, either erupting now or capable of erupting anytime, without any notice. The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on the Landsat 8 satellite captured […]

The man who gave up money and lives in a cave in Utah

A while ago, we were telling you about the Iranian man who lives alone in the desert and hasn’t washed in 60 years; today’s story is similar, but very different. New footage has revealed insight into the life of Daniel Suelo – the man who has chosen to live without money for the past 12 years […]

GeoPicture of the Week (2): Volcanic eruption seen from the space shuttle

In this incredible capture taken on 30 September 1994, we see a major eruption of Klyuchevskaya Sopka as seen by the astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour. It is yet another testament of the immense power that volcanoes have, as the ash rose 60.000 feet into the air (almost 19.000 meters) and spread as far as 640 miles […]

GeoPicture of the week: British folds

There is some magnificent cliff walking on Cornwall in Great Britain, I’d really recommend it to everyone who’s even remotely interested in geology. This picture was taken in the Crackington Haven area; it;s like these Carboniferous rocks were tortured by the tectonic forces as the Rheic Ocean finally closed and Pangea was formed. Truly awesome!

The mind-blowing microphotography of Daniel Stupin

Daniel Stupin is a a PhD student in the University of Queensland and my research is in the field of marine biology. But he’s also a nature photographer and videographer and his work is amazing. You may remember him from a time-lapse video we posted last week. Here are some of his most spectacular pictures, which range […]

How does a message in a bottle survive for 101 years at sea?

Last week, the story of a German fisherman made front news after he found a message in bottle floating in the Baltic Sea for nearly 101 years. What’s more, despite most of the text written was undecipherable, researchers at the Hamburg Museum were able to find the sender’s name and deliver the message to his […]

Bing images: the January edition

I don’t really use Bing all that often, but I think that they do some things significantly better than the competition. However, I don’t want to get into a discussion about search engines and all that, that’s not what this is about. When I was using Bing, I noticed that they add an awesome image […]

Everything you wanted to know about homeopathy but never asked

Last week we wrote an article about an Australian research which concluded that homeopathy is nothing more than a placebo. I’ve received a myriad of emails, ranging from skeptical to downright violent (which was somewhat disturbing), all of which were accusing us of spreading false science and not understanding just how good homeopathy actually is. […]

Fossil Friday – Fossilized beetle

Yes ladies and gents, we’re starting a new feature! I’m such a sucker for geology, that just one weekly feature doesn’t seem enough. I know, I know, I’ve kind of been lazy with the GeoPicture of the Week, but now, it’s settled: the GeoPicture is on Wednesday, and now we have Fossil Friday. Please, feel free […]

A life in a pond – amazing timelapse video

If you’ve ever looked at a pond and thought “Well, not much really going on here”, you couldn’t have been further from the truth. As this fantastic video created by Daniel Stupin shows, a lot is happening even in apparently still ponds. The hidden life in pond water from Daniel Stoupin on Vimeo. If you’re […]
