Is that Oak Alley in Louisiana, or a random oak tree in the South?


Audubon Park, New Orleans



Damn. I've been there and don't think we walked by that tree. I would have remembered it.

I believe that pic was taken by a very good photographer on the best day ever. I looked for different pics of it and found nothing that looked as good.

Wow ... interesting article ...
"A mini, magnetic, all-terrain robot".

Thus far only a larger model that scientists are using to train themselves to maneuver theoretical smaller versions that might be able to do things like deliver drugs to specific sites or perform extractions within a body.

New process could make wood as strong as titanium alloys but lighter and cheaper

Quote:
Engineers at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) have found a way to make wood more than 10 times times stronger and tougher than before, creating a natural substance that is stronger than many titanium alloys.

The mortar launcher that was set up by the Apollo 16 astronauts to generate seismic waves for seismographs.

Apollo 14 and 16 had these launchers, while the Apollo 17 astronauts set charges up to 3.5 km from the landing site.

All of the launches/explosions were set off days after the astronauts had left the Moon.

I believe this goes here

Have any of you ever experience this?

skating on thin ice (about 2 inches)

The cracks, and the sounds...

:eek:

If I can jam a pike through the ice with my hands, I wouldn't stand on it.

"New AI model fills in blank spots in photos":

"I CAN TELL BY THE PIXELS!"

Actually the AI did make an obvious mistake: the third shelf down from the top in the rightmost stack on the bottom level against the backwall. Apparently it had "extended" a book shelf from the wall on the right.

But then this is an AI. It can be programmed to do this job better.
