Lacklustre experiments. Part 2: after submerged in water with 10,000 psi of pressure applied. Sigh.

Flying in the 20s had to be a thrilling experience, indeed. In the absence of radio communication or radar technology, pilots engaged in American coast to coast airmail or passenger service had to rely on often imprecise navigation charts to avoid getting lost. Most of the time they were alone in the air, flying on desertic territory, hoping to reach the destination without encountering bad weather.
To help guiding the pilots across the impervious North American territory, the Congress funded the construction of very large arrow-shaped Airmail Beacons, (up to 20 meters in lenght). Every concrete arrow, painted in bright yellow, was accompanied by a 15 m tall tower, emitting a powerful gas powered light. Each arrow pointed towards the next, separated one with another by a distance of 3 to 10 miles. The beacon towers have been scrapped and recycled for WWII, while the yellow paint has since been worn off by the elements, but the enormous solid concrete arrows are likely to stand there for good.

Strange Attractors by Chaotic Atmospheres
The darkest art known as Chaos Theory is perfectly embodied in the form of its strange attractors: vast looping trajectories of variables that, when plotted, conjure gorgeous yet insidiously disruptive patterns. Chaotic Atmosphere’s Math: Rules series pays tribute to the beautiful form of chaos and its inevitable collapse of all our efforts to predict it.
Lacklustre experiments. Part 1: A Satsuma. . .
I put two beds together for them, no idea why though
Dear Santa, please may I …
A spectacular electrical storms light up the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle range after the massive 8.8-magnitude Puyehue volcano erupted in Chile which had laid dormant for over half a century. The eruption belched an ash cloud more than six miles high over the Andes and cause a flurry of earth quakes. Photos by: Francisco Negroni | Flickr | 500px
