They are also good at hiding and supposedly at escaping enclosures. And they are well known for curiosity. An octopus opened a valve and flooded the Santa Monica Aquarium.

At the Monterey Bay Aquarium (an amazing place and worth a trip to visit it if you are ever in Northern California), they have stories of octopuses hiding out for months, eating the animals that belong in the tank.

Here's an article about the octopus above: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2015 ... n-science/

lighting diagram from the spectre meeting scene in the most recent 007 movie ... look at what you can do with an unlimited budget

they built a huge moveable lightbox that was suspended above the giant meeting table

setting up the shot: you can see the lightbox at the top of the frame (with silk dividers between the lights)

and in the end you get:

Kirk Douglas turned 99. I did not know he had produced Spartacus. (And Seven Days In May.)

Pictured here with Stanley Kubrick on Spartacus set.

Using an Einstein cross, Hubble Space Telescope watches a supernova as it develops:

Image


Four other images of the supernova were used to calculate where a fifth image might appear based on gravity estimations of the galactic supercluster about halfway in between. Of course at about 10 billion light years from Earth we won't see anything of the pre-supernova star itself, but at least we can gather data of the early stages of a supernova (since nearly all of the time we train telescopes upon a supernova several hours at the earliest after first being spotted).

The pic on the lower right was taken on December 11, 2015.

and that would take money, time, and a means of getting the cord (driving to a store or credit card for amazon) which is a taller order for kids.
