lapse: Landsat Satellite Images of Climate Change, via Google Earth Engine TIME and Space | By Jeffrey Kluger Spacecraft and telescopes are not built by people interested in what’s going on at home. Rockets fly in one direction: up. Telescopes point in one direction: out. Of all the cosmic bodies studied in the long history of astronomy and space travel, the one that got the least attention was the one that ought to matter most to us—Earth. // Animated Gifs 01 - Matthew DiVito // MOTION // GRAPHIC // DESIGN // Animated Gifs 01 What started as a little experiment has grown into something more.

A team of researchers working at CERN's Geneva labs has succeeded in trapping antihydrogen atoms – the antimatter equivalent to hydrogen – for the first time. Antihydrogen has been created in the lab before – at CERN actually, back in 2002 – but those atoms existed for just a few fleeting microseconds before doing what antimatter does best: colliding with normal matter (in this case hydrogen atoms) and, in a flash of gamma rays, ceasing to exist. The ability to trap them could lead to range of antimatter experiments that could explain just exactly why antimatter – created in equal parts as normal matter during the birth of the universe (or so the theory goes) – is for the most part absent today.
Psychology of Color [Infographic] Perhaps no choice is as vital to marketing as color. Whether you are selecting the color for a product or for your email marketing campaign, color has tremendous impact on all of us. Subconsciously, we associate different colors with different things. This infographic examines the psychology of color and looks at some common associations of different colors. It shows the overall importance of color to consumers and characteristics of many individual colors, and it also helps show the connection between graphic design and psychology. The numbers are pretty fascinating!

Turkish political road map - James in Turkey Can’t tell your DBP from your HYP? Here’s our ultimate guide. Turkish politics has been a complicated beast to follow since the 1980 coup. Vast electoral swings and enforced party closures meant that the 1990s in particular resembled a spaghetti junction of shifting allegiances and cross-spectrum alliances. To help you navigate it all, here’s JamesInTurkey.com’s road map of Turkey’s political parties, from 1980 to the present day. 5 Bizarre Real Life Gangs That Put The Warriors to Shame In movies, comic books, video games and 80s videos, all street gangs are assembled around a loose theme--like rollerblading, ancient Vikings, or love of classic opera. And they're all either constantly brawling in the streets after kidnapping somebody’s girlfriend, or else dancing in them to help save the neighborhood rec center from an evil real estate agent. Yes, in pop culture gangs are colorful, memorable, goofy and kind of awesome. But reality, as it is so often, is a buzzkill. Real gangs are not quirky or thematic at all; they’re usually just poverty stricken youths with access to guns and a poor concept of the importance of life.
Fluid simulation with Turing patterns Fps: Fluid simulation with Turing patterns (sort of) This demo is built on the Reaction-Diffusion template from the WebGL playground and Evgeny Demidov's fluid simulation. Anyway, this implementation does not use the OpenGL extension OES_TEXTURE_FLOAT. Instead a 16bit "minifloat" buffer is used here.The extension might still be a good start for optimization!To be correct these aren't real "Turing patterns", though the dots are quite characteristic.
Unusual Long Exposure Firework Photographs by David Johnson While attending the International Fireworks Show in Ottawa, Canada earlier this month photographer David Johnson had his camera in hand to document the night. When Spain’s entry into the competition begin he decided to try something a little different resulting in the photos you see here which are unlike any long exposure firework shots I’ve ever seen. Via email David tells me how he accomplished the effect: The technique I used was a simple refocus during the long exposure. Each shot was about a second long, sometimes two.
