Here’s a crazy image for you: what you see is a picture of Mercury’s surface, and a human-like shape that looks a lot like the frozen Han Solo in ‘Return of the Jedi’.
The first World Cup 2010 game I had watched was different. It wasn’t the broadcast picture, although I was hoping for an NFL quality feed. It was a humming background noise that slowly grew my agitation. I later found it to be a “traditional” instrument of the South African’s known as the Vuvuzela. This little $3 horn caused not only grief to me, but the players on the field who had to endure its humming harmonic resonance for no less then 90 minutes per match. I said during the match, “cant the audio technicians over there filter out that frequency?” Well, they probably can, but won’t because of the Fifa President’s official message sent out on twitter “I don’t see banning the music traditions of fans in their own country.”
BAE Systems’ Artisan radar, developed for the Royal Navy, is so advanced that it can detect a tennis ball traveling at Mach 3 more than 25km away.
