NASA just released this GIF of Curiosity's parachute in motion. Over the course of six months, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter kept an eye on the parachute which assisted in Curiosity's landing.

When strung together, the seven images show the parachute moving as the wind sweeps over the landscape. Researchers may use this to help them understand wind patterns and how they affect the surface of Mars.

Contact 1 lets you build a better future. Created by Mike Doyle, the prototype took over 600 man hours to create.

The Contact Series aims to create a new science fiction narrative, told through the medium of LEGO. According to the Kickstarter,

This is a story where human consciousness rediscovers the art of intuition and the subtle – but powerful – forces of the universe. Here, groups of modern humans use ancient rituals which – in combination with expanded consciousness – initiates communication with the great space faring cultures of the universe. Vectoring extraterrestrial beings to their position on earth, these humans invite the visitors to help heal the planet through the ETs' transformative powers and bring the greater Earth community closer to the spiritual nature of the universe.

Backers of the project will receive model kits based on their pledge level, with the largest kit containing 3000 pieces. You can learn more about the lore and logistics of the Contact 1 Masterwork on its Kickstarter page.

14 Epiphanies You'll Have Re-Watching "The Little Mermaid"

ARIEL IS WEARING HER SKIN AS A DRESS. And they call humans barbaric.

Mermaids suck at hide-and-seek.

Mermaids suck at hide-and-seek.

Atlantica enjoys a hell of a lot of sunlight for a secret undersea kingdom. Which is fine until you start to question how far sunlight penetrates the ocean, and the answer is only about one-tenth of a mile. So, slightly over 600 feet under the sea there is a species of mythical creatures, the royalty of which live in a castle so tall you could accidentally step on it while snorkeling. Worst hidden civilization. Ever.

Evidence suggests Ariel's mom was sleeping around.

Evidence suggests Ariel's mom was sleeping around.

No, seriously. Barring the confusing and contradictory ages of Ariel’s sisters from the wiki, they all appear to have been born around the same time but have vastly varying physical appearances — meaning mermaids breed in multiples, and like cats, can be impregnated by multiple partners at once. So either Triton and his wife were righteously kinky, or she was getting some from the pool boy…and the valet…and the butcher.

Ariel creepily hovers over Eric for HOURS with no ill effects if the rising sun is to be believed.

8 Songs Proving "Game Of Thrones" Is Supposed To Be A Musical

0
0

Not the happy-go-lucky spontaneous dance number kind. Martin's books are peppered with ballads which talk of love and legends, religion and history.

Official: Rains Of Castamere

Lyrics:

And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
as long and sharp as yours.

And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

Source: youtube.com

That includes oral histories conveyed in song. Without the ability to read or write, ballads were how most of the populace remembered the past and expressed their emotions. Martin created verses for almost a dozen songs but most haven't made it into the show, leaving it up to talented fans to breathe life into them. And these are just the ones with lyrics. There are dozens and dozens of mentioned songs just waiting to be polished up and sold for $.99 on iTunes.

Fan Version: The Bear And The Maiden Fair

Lyrics:

A bear there was,
A bear, A BEAR!
All black and brown,
And covered with hair!

Oh come they said,
Oh come to the fair!
The fair? said he,
But I'm a bear!
All black and brown,
And covered in hair!

And down the road,
From here to there,
From here!To there!
Three boys, a goat,
And a dancing bear!
They danced and spun,
All the way to the fair!

Oh! sweet she was,
And pure and fair,
The maid with honey,
In her hair! Her hair,
The maid with honey,
in her hair!

The bear smelled the scent,
On the summer air!
The Bear! The Bear!
All black and brown,
And covered with hair!

He smelled the scent,
On the summer air,
He sniffed and roared,
And smelled it there!
Honey on the summer air!

Oh I'm a maid,
And I'm pure and fair,
I'll never dance,
With a hairy bear,
A bear! A bear!
I'll never dance,
With a hairy bear!

The bear,the bear!
Lifted her high,
into the air!
The bear, the bear!
I called for a knight!
But you're a bear!
A bear! A bear,
All black and brown,
And cover in hair!

She kicked and wailed,
The maid so fair,
But he licked the honey,
From her hair!
Her hair! Her hair!
He licked the honey,
From her hair!

Then she sighed and squealed,
And kicked the air,
She sang: My bear so fair,
And off they went,
The bear! The bear!
And the maiden fair!

Fan Version: Hands of Gold

Lyrics:

For hands of gold are always cold
But a woman's hands are warm

He rode through the streets of the city,
Down from his hill on high
O'er the wynds and the steps and the cobbles
He rode to a woman's sigh.

For she was his secret treasure
She was his shame and his bliss
And a chain and a keep are nothing
Compared to a woman's kiss

For hands of gold are always cold
but a woman's hands are warm

Stealing away in the darkness
Through the hour of the wolf, 'till dawn
No five kings, no war, no lost brother
With her, all his cares were gone

For she was his greatest pleasure
She was his shame and his pride
And the view from a tower is nothing
Compared to a woman's eyes

For hands of gold are always cold
But a woman's hands are warm
