Exploring the earth and space

So there’s a whole wealth of available resources to see our planet and the solar system out there – either online or as a downloadable application. These programmes allow you to track hurricanes, cloud cover, global temperature, zoom in to varying degrees etc.

The Earth and Moon viewer is webbased and has some interesting composites

Keyhole can zoom in using satellite images to really detailed levels

This online earth viewer has a whole load of options for satellite images of the earth and space

This is a nice application bound to an online database for 1 km resolution of the earth

Earthquake 3D allows you to track earthquakes in realtime

The Infinite Universe Engine has some interesting screenshots of landscapes and really close terrain for the earth, but also other planets (a graduate project!)

NASA’s World Wind allows you to zoom in impressively from satellite pictures

The Earth Browser is good at showing cloud cover, hurricanes, bouys, webcams etc al updated from Internet as an application with a huge database of earth city locations

This is another impressive link list of terrain mapping tools (and much more information on the homepage

Of course there’s that huge 3d Solar System explorer, but I can’t find the link to that anymore – anyone? 🙂

Faster cars crash less

I always knew my driving habits were safe!

according to an analysis of more than 12 million passenger cars insured by Progressive, the third-largest auto insurer in the United States.

It found cars with more than 200 horsepower actually generate 17 per cent fewer claims than those propelled by less than 200 horsepower.

Wow this guy makes Pulse Jet engines in his garage, mounts them on what look like wheelchairs and zooms these things up and down!

US sent banned corn to Europe for four years

.. and how long has the current (aggressively pro-GM) US President been in office again? Since 01/2001 .. you do the math ..

All imports of United States corn have been stopped at British ports following the discovery that the US has been illegally exporting a banned GM maize to Europe for the past four years.
