Candy Nuke: Scientific Tuesdays

Paul O'Flaherty 0

Mario, Luigi and other candies get nuked for science.

In this demonstration we will melt down Sodium Chlorate and then drop in a payload of candy goodness. The flame color and power of the reaction can differ based on certain salts or even metal shavings. Check it out!

Keith Apicary (Nathan J. Barnatt) who we last saw taking over Kimberly Cole’s music video dance auditions, brings us his a new original song about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Shot entirely in one take, with no special effects, this is pure Apicary right down to the video games and Vanilla Ice references.

Portal fans are going to love the “Perpetual Testing Initiative” which is a level editor DLC that drops on May 8th for Mac and PC.

Perpetual Testing Initiative (PeTI), which combines a powerful, easy-to-use Puzzle Maker with full Steam Workshop integration, and will be available free for the PC and Mac on May 8th.


There are already hundreds of incredible Portal 2 puzzles in the wild, but chances are you haven’t played them. They’re hard to find, hard to install, and hard to manage. We’re changing that. Now that we’re adding the Steam Workshop to Portal 2, you’ll be able to browse a virtually endless stream of community-crafted puzzles, then install and play them with just one click from any web browser. Play the most popular maps in the world, or just what your friend created last night.


With the Puzzle Maker, you can create test chambers of all shapes and sizes. It’s incredibly easy to use — jump right in and start making cool stuff. When you’re happy with your work, publish it to the Workshop for your friends. or even the whole world, to play.

Oh, and let’s be honest, nobody makes an awesome trailer quite like the folks at Valve :)

UFO Near The Sun? NASA Photo Stirs Debate

Paul O'Flaherty 0

What’s your take on this “object” seen precariously close to the sun, at a range where temperatures are estimated at 9,900 Fahrenheit and most spacecraft would burn up?

Photographed by NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory on April 24th, the image appears to show an artificially constructed object which is hinged with a boom arm.

According to Life’s Little Mysteries, a scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory, or NRL, theorizes the object in space is just a collection of streaks left by cosmic rays that hit the camera’s CCD sensor.

“The streaks in question are consistent with energetic particle (proton) impacts on the CCD, something which is apparent in just about every image,” Nathan Rich, of the NRL’s solar physics branch, told the website.

“These artifacts do not persist from image to image,” Rich added, which suggests the cosmic streaks can explain what UFO proponents are hoping turns out to be an extraterrestrial craft.

A cosmic ray burst on the camera may also account for the “boom arm,” pictured below, that seems to be attached to the hinged “spacecraft.”

Is this just an image artifact or do the ET hunters have genuine reason to start creaming their pants?
