The little time machine that could

Nate True at made an impressive gizmo called The Time Fountain. He writes:

It all started when my friend Jesse told me that if you get a strobe light fast enough, you can make it look like dripping water is going in slow motion or even backwards. This phenomenon happens because strobe lights can ‘capture’ an instant in time and allow your eyes to see it as lasting longer than an instant.

Pluto’s heart

Somewhere along the cosmic lines of truth and drama, where Patrick Moore meets Days of our Lives, a voice is heard…

“I might be small, I might have been demoted, but I will never, ever forget that I am what I am. That I am part of the universe as much as the suns and stars are. That I’m as large in heart as Mars is in mass. That I will persist, I will remain as I am, steadfast, in orbit, for as long as I am.”

Orbit on, Pluto!
