Nebula Capsule: The World’s Most Advanced Pocket Cinema

Looking for a portable entertainment system that’s no bigger than a soda can? Look no further: Anker has just unveiled the Nebula Capsule, an immersive cinema and 360° speaker system that you can enjoy anytime, anywhere! And the delivey is expected for next December, so if you back the project, you can get your Nebula Capsule delivered just in time for the holidays!

As I’m writing this, the Nebula Capsule has already raised over $780,000, and with the Anker brand sitting in the back of the product, you can be sure this is going to be a high quality projector.

Nebula Capsule is the big screen in your pocket. But it’s not just big, it’s impressively bright and vivid. Using the most advanced DLP® (Digital Light Processing) technology, IntelliBright™ algorithms adjust brightness and contrast to project a more radiant picture. Turn on the lights without losing the picture.

Enjoy your content in quality you never thought possible in places you never dreamed of.

Gold-making, Spacetime-rupturing Waves Hit Earth 130 Million Years Later

A collision between two neutron stars – a kilonova – has been detected for the first time. It took place 130 million years ago and produced gravitational waves, rupturing spacetime in the way predicted by Einstein.

The collision also produced gold and platinum, a process that was the accepted theory for those elements but only now can be confirmed.

The two stars collided in the Constellation Hydra in the galaxy NGC 4993, around a sextillion (a thousand billion billion) miles away from Earth. The two stars had already exploded as supernovas and had a slightly bigger mass than our sun, but were only around 30 kilometers in diameter.

The resulting gravitational waves were first detected on August 17 this year through detectors operated by the Laser Inteferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory. These detectors split a laser beam in two, sending the beams at right angles where they each hit a mirror, are reflected back and recombine.

The gravitational wave ruptured spacetime just enough that the distance to the mirrors changed, which made a detectable difference to the beams recombining. (Ironically the men behind the technology used in the detector won the Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month.)

Less than two seconds after this happened, orbiting telescopes picked up gamma radiation from the collision, confirming that the gravitational waves did indeed result from the kilonova. Until now the only gravitational waves detected had come from black holes colliding.

The idea of a gravitational wave, which ripples through spacetime, is one of the keys two Einstein’s theory of general relativity explaining phenomena that couldn’t be explained by previous theories such as those of Isaac Newton.

Once the gravitational waves in this incident were detected, scientists were able to measure the electromagnetic radiation from the collision and how it changes in the following moments. That revealed the creation of elements such as gold and platinum. Until now, nobody had observed a collision large enough to produce the energy needed for these heavier elements.

IT EXISTS: A Harry Potter Monster Book of Monsters Plush

If you get one, just be sure to stroke its spine a few times before hugging.

Cuddle up with the Monster Book of Monsters for your Care of Magical Creatures class. Normally we wouldn’t recommend something like that, but this one is relatively tame, so you’re probably fine giving it a good hug or using it as a pillow.

Fidget Spinner Tricks Abord the International Space Station [Video]

A fidget spinner in space! How long does it spin? I’m not sure, but it’s a great way to experiment with Newton’s laws of motion!

Allowing the fidget spinner to float reduces the bearing friction by permitting the rate of the central ring and outer spinner to equalize, and the whole thing spins as a unit.
