So odd to see that sound visualised. It has to be one of my favourite sounds.
Eiffeltower and lightning, result:
Above the streets of Paris, a strange blue circle and white triangle appeared, and just hung there for a moment... long enough for someone to take a photo?
bear vs. eagle
A rather good photograph from the Poland vs Senegal World Cup match.
Mowing the lawn in Alaska
More Alaskan photos, moose wanders into a wedding
The Annual 4th of July Mount Marathon race
I'd push a downhill mountain bike up. Then fly back down...
And how many just roll?
Cool in a heartwarming sort of way, this moment from John McCain's funeral has been making the rounds.
thats how you drive it... by ken rementer, on Flickr
I didn’t know he’d died until I read this.
I probably wouldn't have expected you to. Points for knowing who he was, though.
a woman fell from a cliff in the Women's 2016 race, with serious injuries (WARNING: Graphic image)
A man disappeared (no joke) during the race in 2012 .
amazing she only broke a few ribs...
Amazing is an appropriate word for this image... part of the aftermath of an earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Indonesia, this photo was published with the legend "A damaged mosque near Palu". It is not so much "damaged" as 'now in the sea!'.
Video footage from the area shows that many buildings were not merely swept away/destroyed by the tsunami, but were infact lifted wholesale (and intact) by the liquefaction of the earth during the earthquake, before being picked up and swept out to sea by the subsequent tsunami...
For some reference, here's how the mosque looked pre-earthquake and tsunami.
Thanks for the clarification - it only goes to demonstrate the importance of the pier review process.
I'm confused. Can you expand on that for me?
Everyone who has ever lived is on Earth excluding those in the lander there but who are also inside that frame of view (even if those on Earth aren’t visible). The only person in existence not included is the person taking the photo.
Unless the Russians actually lost a few dudes into deep space and never told anyone.
He should have selfied.
Three Soviet cosmonauts did die in space; Georgy Dobrovolsky, Vladislav Volkov, and Viktor Patsayev were members of the Soyuz 11 mission of 1971. There was an accidental depressurisation during the preperation for re-entry and the three quickly died of asphyxiation. However the module continued its descent into earth and the three were found dead when the module was opened.
The only other rumour of Soviet space missions gone wrong that I know of was that of Vladimir Ilyushin, son of aeroplane designer Sergey Ilyushin. Vladimir Ilyushin was a test pilot and rumoured to have been the real first man in space, about a week before Yuri Gagarin's orbital spaceflight. Something apparently went wrong and Ilyushin was severely injured during the flight and thus the Soviet government did not publish details of it; he was said to have been in a car crash to cover up his injuries.
Ilyushin is also in the rugby union Hall Of Fame, just to add a titbit to the end of this. He was one of the USSR's chief administrators for many years and got their national team started in 1974.
Am in the process of browsing through old photos on my hard drive
and found this one from the set of Jaws. I've always felt it's a really cool shot.
