Bora Bora emerged from the waters 3 millions years ago. Like all the other Polynesian islands, this volcanic island slowly sinking in the ocean. It currently presents particular geological characteristics ranging in between a high island and an atoll status. Island has unforgettable turquoise lagoon – where a multi-color aquatic fauna (sting & manta rays, sharks, tropical fishes) can be observed by outrigger canoe, boat or diving explorations. The coral reef includes a string of islets and gorgeous white sand beaches surrounding the main island.
It can reach heights of 16 to 98 ft and trunk diameters of 23 to 36 ft. Its trunk can hold up to 30.000 gallons of water. It has life span of 5000 years and is protected from fire because of its spongy wood.
A cordless drill is probably the last thing you’d imagine being useful in a kitchen, but over on Make Projects, DIYer Jason Poel Smith shows off how to use a drill to quickly clean dirty pans, as a mixer, cheese grater, and pepper mill attachment.
This image is just mind-blowing. It was originally captured in 1927 at the Solvay Conference, attended by some of the most brilliant scientists in history. Notable attendees included Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Marie Curie, Erwin Schrödinger, Werner Heisenberg, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac and Louis de Broglie. More than half of the attendees went onto win the Nobel Prize in either Physics or Chemistry. Marie Curie actually won the prize in both fields. She remains the only scientist in history to have done so.
The original picture is black & white but a Swedish female artist successfully colorized it and posted it on reddit where it became an instant classic. Not only that, she’s made it available on the internet for free.
This one definitely deserves to be shared further for the world to print and put up as a poster. A more epic gathering cannot be imagined.
