Found meteorites between 1900 & 2000

Mr. Kim Albrecht seems to be right up my alley merging scientific facts and phenomenas in very nice and meaningful visualizations. His website reveals a lot of very interesting stuff, for example a very detailed map wit hall meteores found from 1900-2000. He also explains “how the USA are constantly searching for meteorites over the last 100 years. The strategic searches in Libya the North and South Pole over the last 20 years show up as clusters.”

Laniakea supercluster of galaxies

Scientist R. Brent Tully and colleagues mapped superclusters of galaxies to show us how tiny little our planet/planetary system is in comparison. “Galaxies congregate in clusters and along filaments, and are missing from large regions referred to as voids. These structures are seen in maps derived from spectroscopic surveys1, 2 that reveal networks of structure that are interconnected with no clear boundaries.”

Brain Art Competition

what? – yes that is real and organized by “The Neuro Bureau” since 2010. The submission deadline is May 28th, just in case you have some stuff to submit. If not, have a look on some beautiful realizations from the past years:
