After much sweat and toil, Taylorveltrop has finally unveiled his complete project. Using a Microsoft Kinect, a Nintendo Wii, a treadmill, and computers, he created a quasi virtual reality remote control robot avatar. To test his project, he successfully brushes a kitty in another room with only virtual reality control.

Everyone knows that cats always land on their feet when they fall, but how do they do that? The phenomenon perplexed the nerdy cat owner who runs Smarter Every Day, so he set up his high speed camera and began testing with his kitty, dropping his pet upside down.
The physics behind the phenomenon of cats always landing on their feet is even more amazing once you begin to understand the science behind it.
The nerdy cat video (which is just a perfect recipe for the Internet) has naturally gone viral, amassing over 125,000 hits in just two days. It is already featured on the coveted YouTubeTrends.

Having the amazing opportunity to work in space is many scientists dream. And one of the best parts of being in space is the fun parts! Like experimenting with toys from Earth, such as the yo-yo.
Since the physics are different in space, the yo-yo behaves differently, causing the tricks to have new outcomes.
PhysicsCentralAPS just published this video NASA Astronaut Don Pettit showing us some cool new and classic yo-yo tricks in space that has started to trend.

One of the most important parts of actually being in space is that astronauts can conduct physics experiments in zero gravity they otherwise couldn’t on Earth. Here, a NASA astronaut conducts a small, yet amazing experiment. After ‘charging’ a knit needle with a piece of paper, he squirts drops of water near the needle, causing them to orbit it just like a satellite.

The question may sound ridiculous at first, but after serious contemplation it becomes more and more sincere.
Who owns the moon? Really?
Can anyone claim property on the moon like the crazy guy who actually sells moon real estate? No government entity recognizes extra terrestrial property rights, but that didn’t stop one person from sending NASA a parking ticket for landing on an asteroid he claimed.
Super nerd Vsauce expounds on this topic in his latest educational video which is trending as usual.
