Neat hyperlapse video of stonehenge, made by stitching and motion tracking over 200 photos together. 

Google map has just updated it’s satellite images for the Shanghai region and, along with it, an impressive construction update on Shanghai Disneyland. These satellite images, I believe, were taken back in Nov 2013.  
It is absolutely amazing how much progress has been made. We can see the park, hotels, station and the shopping district all coming into shape. We can also see various show buildings coming up, most notably the Tron Coaster and the POT Ride.

In many ways, we can consider many modern science advancements as a reexamination of the notion of nothingness.
Newtonian mechanics emphasise on the fact that nothing comes out of nothing. This is pretty much the essence of the laws of conservation of energy, momentum and matter.
Then, comes quantum mechanics, which reinterprets nothingness as merely the superposition of something with the negative of something. Relativity explores the idea that light can travel in nothing. The list goes on and on.
The question that fascinates me the most is whether the concept of nothingness exists without space-time? So, is there nothingness before the big-bang? Who would have thought nothing can be such an interesting thing.

A full time-lapse of the complete flight from Denpasar, Bali to Hong Kong, China. The seat was behind the wings and the camera was facing west as the plane was heading north. It was sunny all the way except the approach to Hong Kong International Airport. 

Photos are taking every 5 minutes from take-off to landing. 2337 frames were recorded throughout the flight. It is played back in 90 FPS in this video.

The Heathrow Pod at Terminal 5 reminds me of something from Disney’s Tomorrow Land. But this thing is real. 
Every pod carries up to 5 passengers. The pod is driver-less and is controlled by a centralised computer system. Passengers board the pod and specify the destination. The system will then coordinates with all the traffic and drives the passenger to the destination automatically.
Note that the pods are also track-less and sensor around the lower perimeter of the pod calculates the pod’s distance from the edge constantly and determine if any change of course is needed. 
I am sure the Pod has lot’s of potential. Right now, though, it is quite limited as it only shuttles people between terminal 5 and the business car park.
