In his compositions, Grigoryev’s tent frames the view, his outstretched legs leading towards the stunning mountains. He skillfully captures the undisturbed, natural beauty of the landscape in the background, while the supplies, backpacks, shoes and other tents in the foreground offer an invitation to join his mornings at campsites over 4,700 meters above sea level.

Airplane, lightning bolt, and rainbow collide for a stunning accidental photograph

Aug 28, 2014 By Joey White 3

German pilot Birk Möbius was snapping a few photographs of an incoming Boeing 777 near Leipzig on Sunday when a spectacular rainbow appeared. Möbius asked a colleague to help him count down to when the plane crossed the path of the rainbow and at that moment, he took a photo.

Capturing a plane crossing the path of a rainbow would have been a great photo on its own, but Möbius told a German newspaper, “I looked at the screen and immediately got goose bumps.”

The amateur photographer realized he had captured a bolt of lightning that he didn’t even noticed occurring when he took the photo…

Jellyfish stab you with millions of venom-loaded hypodermic needles. Finally, there’s footage…

Aug 18, 2014 By Abraham 0

We all know that contact with Jellyfish causes an immense amount of pain. But do you know how, exactly?

Here’s the short version: Their tentacles are equipped with hypodermic needles, activated by contact, that shoot venom into whatever they touch. How many of these needles does a jellyfish have? Oh, only about 800,000 per square centimeter.

Travel with Destin of Smarter Every Day to see animal venom expert Jamie Seymour in Cairns, Australia. Together they watch a tentacle in a way that no one else ever has — through a microscope using a high-speed camera.

What you’re about to see has never been recorded before…and it will make you even more certain than you have ever been to stay far away from jellyfish…
