Navy Railgun Successfully Fires Multi-Shot Salvos

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) demonstrates the Navy's electromagnetic railgun initial rep-rate fires of multi-shot salvos at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. The revolutionary railgun relies on a massive electrical pulse, rather than gunpowder or other chemical propellants, to launch projectiles at distances over 100 nautical miles – and at speeds that exceed Mach 6.

Plane Dramatically Lands Upright, After Crashing Into A Tree

An 80-year-old pilot was lucky to escape serious injury after crashing into a parking lot tree while trying to land at nearby Robertson Airport in Plainville, Connecticut. Surveillance camera footage shows the small plane crash into a tree near a Connecticut business Monday morning. The 1981 Cessna 172 aircraft is seen flying low to the ground before hitting the tree, turning around and landing upright with a slam on a Plainville parking lot around 11:25 a.m., according to local authorities. The police identified the pilot as Manfred Forst, who was then taken to The Hospital of Central Connecticut and treated for “what appeared to be minor injuries.” No one else was hurt. The Plainville Town Manager told WTNH News that the pilot “ran into trouble and wound up crashing” at Carling Technologies, a manufacturer on Johnson Avenue located near Robertson Field Airport. Authorities add that the Federal Aviation Administration responded to the scene and is investigating the crash. When this plane's front wheel dangerously malfunctions, the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing. At first, the plane’s propellers stop working just above the ground, but the pilot restarts the engine and they start turning. But just as they try to lower the front of the plane on the strip, the front landing wheel collapses, forcing the plane to come to a halt using the propellers.

Watch from the ISS as it passes over Hurricane Jose and Hurricane Irma!

The International Space Station passed over two major Atlantic hurricanes on Friday, Sept. 8. First, the station flew approximately 250 miles over Hurricane Jose at approximately 10:10 a.m. EDT while the Category 3 storm was in the Atlantic just east of the Caribbean. One orbit of the Earth later, the station flew over Hurricane Irma at approximately 11:40 a.m. EDT. The powerful Category 4 storm had already brought destructive wind and rain to islands across the Caribbean and is forecast to impact the Florida peninsula. Credit: NASA Johnson

Jaw-dropping Footage From Inside The Eye Of A Hurricane2m20s

Jaw-dropping Footage From Inside The Eye Of A Hurricane

NOAA, also known as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, recently sent their Hurricane Hunter aircraft to get an eerily calm view of Hurricane Irma from inside the eye. The cloud walls are a sight to see. This team of four keeps calm as it slights through the clouds watching from above as Category Five Hurricane Irma strikes. This is actual footage recorded by 'NOAA/Hurricane Hunters' from several different angles. This team of hurricane hunters seems to be much into their job. They are discussing and commenting the view during their flight and are seemingly excited to be up in the air, completing their quest. It might seem that Irma is small if you look at it from above, but you have to be very courageous nonetheless to enter the eye of this category five hurricane. These men were brave and up for a challenge. They placed several cameras to film from a different angle in order to capture the footage of this intimidating phenomenon. This is another footage of Irma that shows how this hurricane is not naive at all and its power shouldn't be taken for granted.

Researcher Develops Bond With Over 200 Hummingbirds2m23s

Researcher Develops Bond With Over 200 Hummingbirds

Near the UCLA Court of Sciences, there is a wing-flapping, darting, squeaking colony of 200-plus birds that make their home around the campus office of the “hummingbird whisperer,” as Melanie Barboni is sometimes called. The assistant professor in the UCLA Earth, Planetary and Space Science program built the community of 200 hummingbirds, who live outside her office and are known to come and complain every time she forgets to bring food out for them. Melanie is native of Switzerland, a country which is pretty scarce of hummingbirds; the species are practically non-existent in the alpine country. That is why she has always been obsessed with hummingbirds, ever since she was a child. She says:”My dearest dream as a child was to see hummingbirds. Imagine my joy when I found out that my next job assignment would bring me to Los Angeles, where hummingbirds live year-round.” Now the AP can’t imagine going to a place where there are no hummingbirds. She says that the tiny birds make her happy and that, no matter how cheesy it may sound, she has even witnessed the rapid wing-flappers helping people. “Having a crappy day? Who cares — there are hummingbirds around… Having a good day? Hummingbirds make it better…” concludes Melanie and we couldn’t agree with her more! They do seem like real-life mythical creatures.

Dash Cam Captures Officer Joining 92-Year-Old Woman For Impromptu Dance Off

They might be the staunch protectors of the law and order in our cities, but even police officers need some winding off every once in awhile. So when this police officer noticed the dancing elderly woman in the street, she couldn’t help but stop her cruiser to join in on the fun. 92-year-old Millie Seiver from Austin, Minnesota, was busting some moves on a parking lot when Sergeant Kim Lenz spotted her from her police cruiser. The elderly woman’s moves were contagions, so Sgt. Lenz felt compelled to stop in the parking lot where she found the dancing lady and join in on it. Mrs. Seiver said that she has always been a great fan of dancing; she and her husband practised it constantly and she has no intention of stopping anytime soon. The entire dance off was captured on the cruiser’s dash cam and went viral instantly. Austin (Minnesota) Police Department posted the video on its Facebook page with the caption “Millie says sometimes you just need to dance...Sgt. Lenz couldn’t agree more.” The video has since been shared over 500 times, with more than 40,000 views. Seiver hope that the video will inspire others to dance more often, no matter their age.

Scientists Film Fish At Deepest-Ever Depth In Mariana Trench1m20s

Scientists Film Fish At Deepest-Ever Depth In Mariana Trench

The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (Jamstec) recently released incredible footage (filmed on May 18, 2017) which captured a snailfish in the Mariana Trench at a depth of 8,178 meters - considered to be the deepest point ever for filming fish on camera. The footage was taken using 4K ultrahigh resolution cameras, mounted on an unmanned hadal lander, which was operated by the agency’s deep-sea research vessel Kairei. The Chinese Academy of Sciences announced last April that they have recorded a fish at a depth of 8,152 meters in the same trench on the territory of Guam, thus setting a world record for filming a fish at an accurately measured depth. “We hope we can shed more light on the deep-sea ecology and the depth limit for fish to inhabit,” said senior Jamstec researcher Kazumasa Oguri. According to the agency, after the observation equipment was placed on the northern slope of the trench, the cameras caught amphipods consuming mackerel placed on the lander as bait to attract deep-ocean creatures. The type of snailfish filmed, possibly a Mariana snailfish, is believed to visit the trench to feed on amphipods. In footage shot on a different day at a depth of 7,498 meters, the same type of snailfish was observed eating the amphipods. According to recent studies, the hypothetical depth limit for fish habitation is 8,200 meters because they are unable to control osmotic pressure below that level.

President Trump Participates In Workforce Apprenticeship Discussion6m08s

President Trump Participates In Workforce Apprenticeship Discussion

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you Secretary Acosta and Secretary DeVos for joining us today. And thank you all, because we have been working very hard on being sure that Americans have the training they need for the jobs in the future. I also want to thank Ivanka, my daughter, for her leadership on workforce training and her efforts. You're working very, very hard to create new economic opportunities for women across America and, actually, for women across the world. You've been working with the Chancellor of Germany on helping women all over the world. In the past seven months, we've made enormous gains in getting Americans back to work. The stock market is at record highs. Unemployment is at a 16-year low. And manufacturers have never expressed more optimism about the future. The optimism has been truly incredible. Recently, Foxconn announced that it's going to invest $10 billion to build a new factory in Wisconsin. We want to make sure that every job that comes back to our shores is filled with American workers. We have a lot of companies moving back to our country. You're probably seeing that. Two major automobile companies just announced they're moving back to the United States, and they're going to build major plants. They're looking for the site. They're putting it out to seven or eight different states, and they're going to be very happy building in the United States. It's going to work out very well for them. That's why, in June, we began a historic initiative to expand apprenticeship and workforce training programs in all industries. We're expanding pathways to success. So important. And apprenticeships are one of the many avenues that lead to the great jobs, completely debt-free. And who knows more about the word "apprentice" than Donald Trump? In fact, under the apprenticeship, you earn while you learn. So important and so great. And you love getting up in the morning and going to work, and a lot of great things involved here. We're also here today to discuss additional steps we will be taking to expand apprenticeship programs, especially for women and minorities in STEM fields where women have been truly under-representative -- really, I guess you could say, under-represented for many, many decades. Technology has become a part of nearly every industry, from manufacturing to retailing. And we want all of our citizens, every single citizen -- including women and minorities -- to have access to high-paying tech jobs and other STEM-related jobs. American workers are the best there is anywhere in the world, and we're finding work for them. They built the skyscrapers of our cities, the roads and bridges across our land -- and we'll be building plenty of new roads and bridges, by the way -- the technology that has revolutionized the globe, and so much more, as you're well aware. Their skills, talent, and grit have always put America on top. And we're going to remain on top at a much higher level than we are right now. And speaking of now, it is our job to make sure that they have the training, immediately, to lead us into the future. We have great, great hope. We have a great, great future in this country. There's never been more optimism. And again, unemployment at a 16-year low. So we're honored to have all of you. Mr. Secretary, thank you very much. Betsy, thank you very much. We appreciate it. And, Ivanka, congratulations on working so hard. We really do appreciate it. Thank you. Credit: The White House
