That is a spectacular machine xSP. I see it from an engineers point of view and observe the critical timing of those valves. Wow! And the thing does that 50, 60, 70 times a minute for a lot of minutes.......1440 minutes in a day......times 60 means that those little valves did their thing 86,400 times. If a whole year is considered then thirty one million times and when one is as old as me, the total number is .......Oh Shit !........somewhere in the region of three billion. And that is only if the measurement was always counted at rest. Best not to think in those terms I reckon.

Boom boom...

Er, more like "Boom - squish" for me, the left ventrical is only closing about half normal volume due to now being 25% stiff scar tissue...

I don't know if this is real. But it's supposed to be a meteor that hit Russia in 2013.

Seems like an bit of something that was somewhat more volatile burned up as it got closer to the ground.

Yes, most of the shots show that extra brightening and thickening of the "trail". That is was convinced me it was genuine.

CGI is now good enough to be very hard to spot but immitating that, from several angles, would be quite difficult - not worth the bother.

Incredible to think all that sensing and chasing is just done on chemical gradients.

And easy to believe that theory that all multicellular life is really a super-colony of more primitive  forms.

There must have been a hell of a sonic bang as well, it was clocked at about 19km/sec, only about 60 times the speed of sound! But yes:
