GO DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE.

Has anyone ever seen Samus and Zero Suit Samus in the same room? 

Think about it.

Actual Cannibal Shia LaBeouf

If you’re not already excited about Rob Cantor you will be now.

You know sometimes the way the news is lately leaves me feeling a little hopeless, but then something like this comes along and my wonder and delight in humanity is restored a smidge.

Unparalleled. A stage masterpiece.

Fantasy lizard people where the females don’t have breasts they just figured out that bras are perfect for holding heat packs.

Fantasy lizard people where the males figured this out too and can’t understand why humans keep mistaking them for females because obviously they have five brow spikes not six like females do??

I have a dire need for this.

omg it’s so cute

The Future of Space Suits

NASA’s space suits haven’t fundamentally changed much in a long time. They’re basically tough balloons that get filled with you and a gas that provides the right amount of pressure to keep you’re body healthy in the vacuum of space.

This is changing. Dava Newman, professor at MIT is currently adding the finishing touches to her new space suit design - and NASA’s very interested.

Basically, instead of floating around in a stiff balloon, the spacesuit would provide an alternative to atmospheric pressure by using special coils that tighten into your exact body shape when they feel heat.

The space suit will make moving around infinitely (not literal) easier. It will also make space travel ridiculously in-style.

Putting on a space suit would be more akin to donning spandex than getting into a “you-shaped space ship”.

It gets even more cool. There are plans to add sensors and actuators to the suits, these mechanical devices that enhance and empower movement when they feel it:

To put simply, the potential is to give whoever wears the space suit their own little piece of super human strength.

Just FYI to all you space naysayers, the implications in the medical world are huge too. Let one’s imagination go to work.

I’m actually interested in seeing how this pans out, if it will actually work and if it does how well? I see it working better as an EVA suit in atmospheres, but grasping it in actual space seems iffy to me, though I wouldn’t know

As for this being an EVA in (alien?) atmospheres - when you’re in space, it’s just a vacuum. If you can deal with the pressure differentials and the temperature than you should be fine. When finished the suit will solve both problems with efficiency and at breakthrough potential to save money.

The President just nominated Professor Newman to be the new Deputy Administrator of NASA as well (that’s the second-in-command of NASA). You don’t get that sort of job without good reason and since this is Newman’s particular specialty it means NASA may actually commit to this new space suit.

This is one of the first things that I thought of when I saw that Book 4 of LOK would be set three years later.
If you were twelve when ATLA first came out, then nine year later, you’re going to be twenty-one when LOK ends. Which means that you were the same age as Aang when ATLA started and the same age as Korra when LOK finished.
And I don’t believe that this is a coincidence at all.

I actually am

Yaaaaayyy

Each main Legend of Korra villain represents a different political ideology.

Even the more minor villains like Varrick (who is not always necessarily a villain) and the Earth Queen represent ideologies as well:  Capitalism and Monarchy, respectively.
