I wouldn't know why, but, liquid cooling and fans?

Yes.

The liquid runs through a radiator. The fans blow cool air over the radiator, cooling the liquid.

In other words, the same basic technology as this:

But with a fan.

Yeah, and cars have a fan to pull cold air in trough the radiator. But I thought a reason for liquid cooling in computers was to eliminate the noise from the fans.

Water has a much higher carrying capacity for heat than air, so you can move heat more efficiently. The metal block is fairly similar in both cases, with the exception that the fins don't have to be so tall to transfer heat to a fluid.

However, all you are doing is moving heat. You still have to dispose of it somewhere, and that is where the radiator and fans come in. The advantage is that you can have a LOT more surface area in the radiator than at the heatsink.

I thought that was the case too, when I bought the liquid cooler for my current CPU, but no. The liquid cooler is actually a little bit louder than the fan that came with it. But it has always kept the CPU significantly cooler.

Altered "dino-chick" partially shows how modern chicken beaks evolved from dinosaur ancestors:

Image


The left image shows the skull of a normal chicken embryo.

The center image shows the skull of an altered chicken embryo which was induced chemically to stop its normal fusion into a chicken's beak and instead shows the two separate bones which would have formed its snout.

The right image shows the skull of a modern alligator.

The scientists performing this experiment did NOT allow any of the eggs to get to full maturity so they could be hatched.

A still image from the previously posted GIF:

That crater which contains those shiny bits is about 30 km across, so even the smallest shiny bit is about a kilometer across.

Also remember that Ceres has an average albedo of 0.09, so the rest of the surface is in terms of reflectivity somewhere between fresh and worn asphalt, or--to use an astronomical object--about as bright as the dark maria on the Moon. Just another one of those cases where photography can mislead the observer.
