Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane)
Mon, 15 Jan 2018 19:30:00 -0500
Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane)The Blackbird’s design reflected the fact that it was pushing the limits. The SR-71’s J58 engines could only start through use of two vehicle-mounted V8 starter engines, and the triethylborane used in the fuel would belch green flames during ignition. The J58s would switch to a partial ramjet mode at high speeds, such that the SR-71 actually became more fuel efficient when it went faster.

Family laughs off epic Photoshop fail that left them looking like cartoon characters as sceptics cry fake
Mon, 15 Jan 2018 18:50:29 -0500
Family laughs off epic Photoshop fail that left them looking like cartoon characters as sceptics cry fakeThere have been any number of PhotoShop controversies over the years, from the almost routine retouching of images of models to photojournalists being caught doctoring their war footage. But this must be the most bizarre - if the pictures are to be believed. "Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot," writes Pam and Dave Zaring in a Facebook post.  "Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us...." The finished product must have come as something of a shock. Far from beautiful portraits of her family, the photos came out looking like something from a horror show. The photographer said the shadows caused problems on such a sunny day Credit: Facebook Imagine the plain features of a Sims family... only covered over in paper. The Zarings said the photographer had a ready explanation. "She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos," they wrote. At least they could see the funny side to their family being portrayed as cartoonish figures. "I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!!!!! You can't make this stuff up," they added with a cheery invitation to share the pictures. The photographer said she had never been taught how to retouch images Credit: Facebook The images have now been shared almost 400,000 times, setting off a viral discussion about whether they are fakes or if they might actually be real. Plenty of people expressed scepticism in the comments section with some suggesting it was some kind of marketing ploy. “This is not real,” wrote one. The couple insisted it was true and that they had a long battle to see the finished product. “This is not a joke. This is legitimately the final product I received in the mail yesterday," they wrote. "I passed my furious mark months ago when she wouldn’t send us anything. I was fully prepared to be scammed, money gone, and no final product!" The family's local newspaper, The St Louis Post-Dispatch, said it contacted the photographer involved who declined to discuss the images. The buzz even inspired one photography expert to offer an online tutorial in retouching to get the same effect.  
Chinese 'rainbow dinosaur' had iridescent feathers like hummingbirds
Mon, 15 Jan 2018 05:22:39 -0500
Chinese 'rainbow dinosaur' had iridescent feathers like hummingbirdsScientists on Monday announced the discovery of a crow-sized, bird-like dinosaur with colorful feathers from northeastern China that lived 161 million years ago during the Jurassic Period. Microscopic structures in the exquisitely preserved, nearly complete fossil unearthed in Hebei Province indicated that it boasted iridescent feathers, particularly on its head, neck and chest, with colors that shimmered and shifted in the light, like those of hummingbirds. The discovery "suggests a more colorful Jurassic World than we previously imagined," said evolutionary biologist Chad Eliason of the Field Museum in Chicago, one of the researchers in the study published in the journal Nature Communications.
