SPHEREFACTOR: Incredible Rare SEYMCHAN PALLASITE OLIVINE METEORITE Sphere


via this auction

"Seymchan Pallasite Meteorite w/ Olivine Crystals Sphere

Mineral Origin: Magadan District, Russia, 1967
Diameter: 2.77" / 70.3 mm
Weight: 2 lbs 4.3 oz / 1029 grams / 1.029 kilograms

Absolutely incredible!

The largest Seymchan Pallasite meteorite sphere ever offered!

Seymchan is a Pallasite meteorite found in the dry bed of the Hekandue River in the Magadan District, Russia,

near the settlement of Seymchan in June 1967 ...

Pallasites consist of a nickel-iron matrix packed with Olivine crystals

and account for less than 2% of all known meteorites ...

and unlike many meteorites, Seymchan is stable and rust resistant!

Due to the rarity of the Seymchan material and the large cut loss incurred to make a sphere,

very few have been cut! ...

and we can almost guarantee, another one this size is unlikely to be ever cut!

In April 2016, a Seymchan Pallasite sphere sold at Christie's Auction for over $10,000! ...

and it was only 434 grams! ... less than half the size of this one!

In October 2012, a 548 gram Seymchan Pallasite sphere sold for $13,000!"

LUNAR


LUNAR from Christian Stangl on Vimeo.

"This short film is dedicated to all people who believe in peaceful expansion of our borders.

In the year 1957 the cold war expands to space. The Soviet-Union sends Sputnik as the first manmade object into earth-orbit.

3 years later Yuri Gagarin enters space as the first man in space. The so called "Space Race" seems to be decided.

But in 1961 President Kennedy promised to send American Astronauts to the Moon.

The Apollo Project was born. A space ship had to be built that is strong enough to escape earth's gravitation, land on the moon and bring the crew safely back to earth.


Motion Designer Christian worked with his brother and Composer Wolfgang for 18 months on this shortfilm.

The foundation were thousands original NASA photographies, taken from the Astronauts during the Apollo Missions, which were released in September 2015. It is an animated collage using different techniques to bring the stills to life.

Hearing Madge


Published on Jan 24, 2017 Aeon Video

"Pressing the ashes of the dead onto records: odd novelty or tender remembrance?

When it first made headlines in 2010, Jason Leach’s UK-based company And Vinyly – which presses the ashes of the deceased into vinyl records for loved ones wishing to hold onto their memory – appeared to be something of a macabre novelty. But there might be more to preserving the departed (quite literally) on records than first meets the eye – and ear. Hearing Madge explores how Leach’s venture was given new meaning when he was approached by a man looking to save his mother’s recollections that he had recorded shortly before her death. Surprisingly touching, Andrea Lewis’s short documentary is both a profile of an unusual business and a thought-provoking contemplation of the ways we chose to remember the dead.

Director: Andrea Lewis"

Source of Van Gogh's Starry Night


via Boing Boing

"Van Gogh likely based his famed Starry Night on this scientific illustration of the Whirlpool Galaxy by one William Parsons that appeared in a 19th century popular astronomy tome, according to Michael Benson's new book Cosmigraphics [on Amazon], a history of our efforts to illustrate the universe."
