'Doctor Who': The Magic Of The TARDIS


So why is it so magical? What makes this time machine better than all the other time machines in time machine history (an unfinished history, written in non-chronological order for obvious reasons)? And can this information be organised into some kind of easy-to-digest list, for Twitter-addled brains to process, one nugget at a time?

'Doctor Who': The Magic Of The TARDIS

So why is it so magical? What makes this time machine better than all the other time machines in time machine history (an unfinished history, written in non-chronological order for obvious reasons)? And can this information be organised into some kind of easy-to-digest list, for Twitter-addled brains to process, one nugget at a time?

Time travel is possible. Just ask the Samoans.

Samoa will jump forward in time by one day to make it easier to do business with Australia and New Zealand.

At present, Samoa is 21 hours behind Sydney. From 29 December it will be three hours ahead.

The change comes 119 years after Samoa moved in the opposite direction.

Then, it transferred to the east side of the international date line in an effort to aid trade with the US and Europe.

However, Australia and New Zealand have increasingly become Samoa’s biggest trading partners.

Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi said: “In doing business with New Zealand and Australia, we’re losing out on two working days a week.

“While it’s Friday here, it’s Saturday in New Zealand and when we’re at church Sunday, they’re already conducting business in Sydney and Brisbane.”

“While it’s Friday here, it’s Saturday in New Zealand and when we’re at church Sunday, they’re already conducting business in Sydney and Brisbane.”

Carnegie Mellon releases a time machine...sort of.

killscreendaily:

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon have released a virtual time machine —  for pictures.  It’s a super-advanced time-lapse photo system that allows high resolution as well as viewing changes over time such as plants in boom.

“With GigaPan Time Machine, you can simultaneously explore space and time at extremely high resolutions,” said Illah Nourbakhsh, associate professor of robotics and head of the CREATE Lab. “Science has always been about narrowing your point of view — seeing a particular experiment or observation that you think might provide insight. But this system enables what we call exhaustive science, capturing huge amounts of data that can be explored in amazing ways.”

You can try it out here.

If I had a time machine…

respectthebowtie:

I wanted to post on Twitter about when and where I would go if I had a time machine, but I have too many and I honestly can’t pick.

  • See the first performance of one of Shakespeare’s plays
  • First Beatles performance
  • See Chopin perform
  • Travel to London during the blitz to provide aid
  • First Olympic games
  • New York during the Roaring 20s
  • Ancient Rome / Egypt during their height
  • Medieval England

How on earth am I supposed to pick one?
