Bits and Bobs

One Solar Piece of Flair -- the sun has been swinging back into the active bit of it's 11-year solar cycle, so they'll be lot's more interesting activity to study
(from Bad Astronomy)

Hermit mathematician refuses prize -- *this* is the guy who solved the Poincaré conjecture? I know genius often goes hand in hand with eccentricity, but still...

A History of the Sky -- A time-lapse visualization of the sky over San Francisco for an entire year, from various locations. A work in progress, but *very* cool.

21 UNBELIVABLE pictures of Mars -- avalanches, ice, dust storms, and beauty beyond comparison. Pictures like these keep me going.

A Map of the Internet -- and oldy but goody from xkcd, just in case you get lost (hopefully not out by the Dragons!). What part are you from?
