The Ekranoplan

click HERE for more photos

Ekranoplan KM
by heydrich

These planes/boats are so awesome its silly. The Russians are well known for their less than conventional approach to things. The Ekranoplan is a aircraft that kinda floats on its own speed generated air cushion, its a great concept that unfortunatly had its limitations mainly in the form of investment and interest from Soviet politicians. Although this is a Russian documentary its worth watching even if you do not understand the language, The images are stunning and the imagination of the engineers shines.

wow here it is on google maps!

thanks to karl coyner for showing me this.

the coolest thing in 2 weeks

thanks to seth hall for showing me the coolest thing i've seen in 2 weeks.

ignorance and power

the earth is more unstable now:
  • it wobbles more than it used to
  • the atmosphere is speeding up
  • the earth is slowing down
  • the core is getting hotter
  • the magnetic north is changing
  • the sun is more active and older than we thought
  • everything is more unpredictable

the late Carl Sagan said:

"we've arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. we've also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. we might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces."
