SOUR / MIRROR 500 (Internal Server) Error - We've happened upon a bit of a problem... The ultimate film about weapons of mass destruction On July 16, 1945, at a site called Trinity, a plutonium bomb was assembled and brought to the top of a tower. The bomb was detonated, producing an intense flash and a fireball that expanded to 600 meters in two seconds. "Trinity and Beyond" is an unsettling yet visually fascinating documentary presenting the history of the design, development, production and testing of nuclear weapons between 1945 until 1963. Director/producer Peter Kuran (who spoke with Molly Bentley for NPR radio), traveled throughout the U.S. to locate footage that includes bombs being suspended by balloon, exploding under the ocean, being shot from a cannon and detonated in outer space. In the 70th Anniversary Tribute Edition, renowned special effects filmmaker Peter Kuran (Star Wars, Star Trek II & V, Robocop) has perfectly restored these haunting images for generations to come. © VCEinc.

This Guy's Portal Gun Actually Works, Turns His House Into a Test Chamber Not necessarily, once he flew into the air all of his earlier momentum was slowed, then halted, by gravity, then it was simply a matter of falling from that height... he would have gone very high up, but on his way down I don't think he would reach terminal velocity again (napkin math tells me it would be less, but I don't know how much less). Even if it were substantially less, it *would* have killed him anyway, *if* all of that force was directed toward the Earth when he landed, but as soon as he went through the last portal, all of that gravity was transferred into horizontal force, and (like a bullet) he would have fallen to Earth no faster than if you dropped a baseball. That said, in the video it looks like he slammed into that fence, so... The solution would've been to put two portals on the ground and wait for gravity to slow his velocity as he fell up and down through both. Don't forget the part where he looks up to see himself... That section had a few problems... | vjs, visuals, mash-ups, and more… Download Bergensbanen in HD Friday November 27th, over 1,2 million Norwegians watched parts of «Bergensbanen» on NRK2. The longest documentary ever? At least the longest we have made, almost 7 1/2 hours, showing every minute of the scenic train ride between Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo. Bergensbanen is 100 years in 2009, and the documentary was a wild idea from NRK staff that came through, and was, surprisingly, a big success. On Twitter, this became the thing to talk about in Norway. Norwegian version – see «Bergensbanen – klar for avgang» Now we want to give the material to our viewers, the whole thing, for download.
