Wind Patterns (for the U.S.)

U.S wind patterns (excerpt from April 10th, 2012) HINT.FM

HINT.FM has an amazing animation of winds over the U.S.. A major part of the awesomeness is that it’s updated hourly from the National Weather Service’s weather database, which has an awful lot of excellent data available.

I’ve always been in favor of alternate means of presenting information, especially for recipes.

The Visible Universe

November 15, 2011

Everything depends on your point of view — more or less. Our picture of the universe has changed in the last 60 years as telescope technology has improved. Popsci has a great interactive visualization showing how much more we can see now.

Notice that in this picture, the Earth is at the center of the universe (the Sun is a little way off to the middle lower left). After all, we’re looking at the universe from the Earth, not the other way around.

Beating the Odds: The Sheer Improbability of Being Here

November 13, 2011

visual.ly posts and hosts some excellent graphics. The one below, calculates the nearly infinitesimal probability of just being born. There’s hardly a better argument for appreciating life.

It’s also a good example of working with probabilities [and] exponents. Very large exponents.
