EFFORTLESSLY INTERESTING: A Time Lapse Animation Of Ocean Currents

Republibot 3.0's picture

Welcome to "Effortlessly Interesting," the feature in which we've got space to fill, but we're clearly not trying too hard. I mean, come on, it's three days 'til New Years, right? We're busy. Anyway...

This time out all we've got for you is this link, which leads to a fascinating model of the earth's ocean currents, as observed from the ISS, weather satellites, and assorted orbital bric-a-brac. Yeah, yeah, I know it doesn't sound all that interesting, but it is, in fact, pretty cool, and it does, in fact, look something like a Van Gogh painting, as the article itself suggests.

EFFORTLESSLY INTERESTING: I doubt it'll ever fly, but this is what the Orion will be doing if it does

Welcome to "Effortlessly Interesting," our low-impact feature that we throw up to fill space when there's something kinda' snazzy out there that's worth sharing, but at the same time we're not really invested in it.

EFFORTLESSLY INTERESTING: A history of Nuclear War in Fiction

Welcome to "Effortlessly Interesting," the feature that's just filling space between reviews of cartoons and movies no one cares about.

This time out, I give you this link to a comprehensive digest (though it's a bit old) of Nuclear War as it tends to show up in fiction (Both SF and 'Dane). This is actually pretty cool in an arcane sense as it reflects what people's opinions on the subject were at given times.
