NASA's Langley Research Center celebrates 100th anniversary

Our Langley Research Center officially celebrated its 100th anniversary on July 17. Groundbreaking took place on that date in 1917, for what is now known as Building 587 – the first aeronautical research laboratory erected in 1918 for NASA’s predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). The establishment of Langley – NASA’s first field center – marked the start of our quest to achieve aerospace excellence through the scientific study of flight.

Very Rare Full-circle Rainbow Spotted From Crane In Russia30s

Very Rare Full-circle Rainbow Spotted From Crane In Russia

A construction worker working on top of a crane in the city of St. Petersburg, Russia experienced a very unique sight indeed. The height has enabled him to see a rainbow forming full circle right in front of his crane, while he was working on the 1515 feet high Lakha Center skyscraper. The formation was so big, that the worker had to pan the camera in order to capture its full circumference. The rarity of this natural occurrence comes with the point of view. When we are on the ground, we can only see the light that is above us. Rainbows forms when light hits the droplets of water in the air, refracting the white light into the spectrum it is comprised of and bending the light into a colored arc. When you see the rainbow from a greater height, you might have the opportunity to witness the arc come full circle, like a lens. The conclusion is that the phenomenon isn’t all that uncommon, you just have to climb really high in order to fully experience it. All rainbows are circular in formation, but when on the ground, the horizon is “blocking” the bottom half of the circle, letting you think that the rainbow is a bridge with a beginning and an end. Whatever the circumstance, seeing this spectacle is truly remarkable.

Security cam catches goat breaking into Colorado office53s

Security cam catches goat breaking into Colorado office

When you hear about a bunch of kids vandalizing an office, an image of a group of teenagers with baseball bats and spray paint comes to mind. However, this is not such a case. A CCTV camera inside the office of Argonics Inc. - a company based in Louisville, Colorado - shows a black and white goat smashing into the front doors of the building. Yes, you read that correctly! When the employees came to work one day, they found the glass on both the front doors shattered and their first thought was exactly like yours. But when they rewound the security camera footage, what they discovered what amusing with a dash of disturbing. The Colorado office wasn't broken in exactly, it was banged in. An adult male goat was seen banging his head against the glass pane of the door until it shatters to pieces, scaring him away. Just when you think the buck had enough with sharp objects, you can seen him come back – only to bang his horns through the other pane as well. Officials have reported that the group of goats have actually escaped from a local farm and are still on the loose, leaving only their pellets of poop. One specialist says that this has nothing to do with vandalism, although he probably did it for fun. Goats are very curious creatures and can frequently be seen head-butting anything that piques their interest. Credit to 'Argonics Inc.'

Pet store secretly replaces their pets with shelter animals2m03s

Pet store secretly replaces their pets with shelter animals

All over the world, shelters are overflowing with abandoned animals waiting for a second chance at a good life. Some of those animals get to experience it, but the others aren't so lucky. When an animal doesn't get adopted, high kill shelters euthanize them, while no kill shelters let those animals grow old with them. Either way isn't a solution to this problem, yet more and more people decide to give money for their pets, instead of getting one virtually for free. Associacao Quatro Patinhas, meaning Association Four Paws, is an animal shelter in Brazil that believes there is no difference between pure-bred and shelter animals, so they came up with an ingenious solution to the adoption problem. They decided to replace all the pure bred pets in one pet shop with the animals they have in the shelter. Without telling a single customer that walks in the shop. This experiment was staged to change people's perception of shelter animals. Every customer made sure to ask twice when the shopkeeper told them that they could adopt a pet for free instead of buying one. Christianne Duarte Garoiu, the president and founder of Associacao Quatro Patinhas, said: “...there are many other pets that would bring them so much love for all their lives and people don’t need to spend a cent for it.’ Better than buying a life is saving one.

Hero bus driver in Milwaukee helps lost 2-year-old boy

A bus driver from Milwaukee was dubbed a national hero, after he helped a lost little boy find his way back home. After spotting a 2-year-old boy wandering alone at 6:30am, Milwaukee County Transit System driver Duane Butler decided to stop his bus and assist (along with the help of a passenger). The driver was going along his usual route on July 4th when he spotted a little boy, dressed in shirt, pants ans socks, roam alone in the street. The bus had just a few passengers on board and with their permission, Duane stopped the vehicle and radioed the police for assistance, while one of passengers picked the boy up and comforted the distraught child. The boy was crying and couldn't tell the men on the bus where he came from, so he sat down quietly in the bus until the police arrived. Reports say that the toddler slipped from home while his family was sleeping and got lost in the neighborhood. The policemen took the boy in their custody and went door to door, asking if someone knows him. Thanks to the driver's quick thinking, the little adventurer was swiftly reunited with his grateful mother. Credit to the 'Milwaukee County Transit System'.

This is one cool video that should not be missed! So that is how they get big boats like that in the water, who knew? At one point, it seemed like the boat was going to capsize and fall into the water! It really is amazing that tons and tons of steel and metal like that can float on the water! This really was one entertaining video to watch! Most people don't have boats such as this one, so they cannot do cool stuff like this. However, a lot of people are purchasing cool r-c boats from Amazon to do cool things with! Credit: U.S. Navy

Officials rescue a bear cub with jar stuck on its head

Police officers from the La Verne Police Department were called to respond to 2500 block of Jasmine court to an unusual disturbance. Apparently, one of the residents got an unexpected guests who appeared to be in trouble – a bear cub with a plastic jug stuck on its head. It was unclear whether the baby bear was looking for honey or other type of food in the vicinity when it got itself in the mess, but when the officers arrived on the scene, its head was already secured tightly in the jug and the scared baby animal was trying to run away by attempting to jump over a wire fence. The officer recording can be seen attempting to remove the jug from the subs head, though unsuccessfully. The officers on the scene called the Fish and Wildlife Service for assistance with the cub. When a Fish and Wildlife agent reported on the scene, one of the officers held the bear cub down, while the F&W agent was cutting the plastic jug to remove it. Once freed, the bear cub can be seen rushing towards a nearby tree and climbing on it as soon as the officers let him go. It appeared unharmed. Credit to La Verne Police Department

Thief gets dose of instant karma after stealing from vehicle1m54s

Thief gets dose of instant karma after stealing from vehicle

Isn't this a sight to see. CCTV cameras in Fullham, UK were able to record a thief breaking into a parked vehicle. He rides in with his bike and immediately popped open the trunk of an SUV. He started to remove items as quickly as he could, looking for anything valuable he could find. Then he moved to the front of the car and started to steal items from there as well! He continues to take more items from the car with no sense of guilt. Once he is finished grabbing all the items he wants, he returns back to his bike, and simply just rides off. Not so fast though, once he rode off, he got some instant karma! A police car cut him off and pushed him to the side of the road. He was caught and wasn't able to get away with this horrible crime. According to the reports, he was sentenced to 28 weeks in prison. Check out these neat bikes! Their purpose isn't to steal but to ride around the neighbourhood and have some fun!

Nighttime Rocket Launch Creates Colorful Clouds in Space3m09s

Nighttime Rocket Launch Creates Colorful Clouds in Space

The early morning skies along the mid-Atlantic coast were lit up by luminescent clouds as NASA tested a new system to support science studies of the ionosphere and aurora, with a sounding rocket launch June 24 from the Wallops Flight Facility on the eastern shore of Virginia. During the flight of a two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket, 10 canisters about the size of a soft drink can were deployed in the air, 6 to 12 miles away from the 670-pound main payload. The deployed canisters formed blue-green and red artificial clouds, or vapor tracers which allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space. The development of the multi-canister ampoule ejection system is also designed to allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously allowed when deploying the tracers just from the main payload. The vapor tracers were expected to be visible from New York to North Carolina and westward to Charlottesville, Virginia – with the total flight time for the mission expected to be about 8 minutes.

Tasmanian Devil doesn't seem to mind light snowfall16s

Tasmanian Devil doesn't seem to mind light snowfall

While the rest of us northern-hemispher-ners curse the heat of the scorching summer, Australia has seen a light snowfall. One might think that Australia's exotic critters might be confused and scared of the frozen rain, but this little guy seems to be enjoying the light snow almost as much as the next kid. The cute Tasmanian Devil is a resident at Devils@Cradle, which is a wildlife reserve n Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania. It is a refuge center to protect these animals, whose number has dwindled due to a facial tumor disease that has spread through the population rapidly. The video was posted by the refuge when they had their first snow and the Tasmanian Devil reacts to the change of weather quite adorably. After the viewers fell in love with one of world's largest carnivorous marsupial, Discover Tasmania decide to throw a campaign to name the little guy. Tasmanian Devils are known for the terrifying range of noises they can make – but this little guy is more interested in just sniffing around as the flakes fall. Australians can submit their name suggestions to the organisation for a chance to win a trip to the Cradle Mountain area and a chance to see him in person, but non-Australians can still plan a trip to Devils@Cradle wildlife sanctuary.

Roll-Out Solar Array Experiment (ROSA) Deploys on International Space Station8m00s

Roll-Out Solar Array Experiment (ROSA) Deploys on International Space Station

The Roll-Out Solar Array (ROSA) was deployed from the end of the Canadarm2 robotic arm Sunday, June 18 outside the International Space Station. ROSA is an experiment to test a new type of solar array that rolls open in space like a party favor and is more compact than current rigid panel designs. The ROSA investigation tests deployment and retraction,characterizes changes when the Earth blocks the sun, vibration and other physical challenges to determine the array’s strength and durability. ROSA has the potential to replace solar arrays on future satellites, making them more compact and lighter weight. Satellite radio and television, weather forecasting, GPS and other services used on Earth would all benefit from high-performance solar arrays. The payload will remain deployed for seven days before retracting and will be stowed back inside the trunk of SpaceX’s Dragon cargo vehicle. Note: footage of deploy is sped up 300%.
