Clouds Crashing Over Nebraska
Storm chaser Alex Schueth captured timelapse of a rare cloud formation called undulatus asperatus during a storm over Lincoln, Nebraska earlier this summer. The term, which translates to “roughed or agitated waves,” describes the bizarre rolling pattern formed by the clouds. Observers have noted that the phenomenon gives the impression of being underwater looking up at the surface at waves. Margaret LeMone, a cloud expert with the National Center for Atmospheric Research has taken photos of asperatus clouds for 30 years, and considers it a likely new cloud type.

Here’s a new thing that I want: the Pixel waffle maker.

As you can see, you poke whatever pixels you like in or out in this blue silicon tray, before cooking waffles on it (it fits into its own custom waffle maker). Looks tasty.

Fabian Oefner is bringing art and science together. In this eye-catching series of clips, Oefner makes sound waves visible by placing colorful crystals over a speaker and filming their movement. The result is poetic and more than a little trippy.
Watch his talk and see more beautiful scientific experiments here»

So cool. This would be an awesome gif to show students in physics as they are learning about sound waves. It is a great way to see the shape of the wave.

The ballerina Misty Copeland has had a meteoric rise under unique circumstances. Rivka Galchen writes:

"Copeland is considered an unlikely ballerina: she is curvy and she is black, neither of which is a common attribute in the field. But it is her very late beginning and rapid attainment of virtuosity that are arguably without precedent for a female ballerina."

Photograph by Pari Dukovic

"Most ballerinas don’t have pensions, they rarely dance past the age of forty (injuries often end their careers earlier than that), and a soloist at A.B.T. earns between fifty thousand and a hundred thousand dollars a year. The great Anna Pavlova endorsed Pond’s Vanishing Cream."

"(Ballet costuming often seems ridiculous at first glance, but usually reveals its own special mechanics.)"
