Friday Links!

Leading off this week, an incredible link from David Gloier: the untold story of the last minutes of cosmonaut Alexai Kosygin: Cosmonaut Crashed Into Earth 'Crying In Rage'. This is an absolutely mesmerizing read.

From Rob Cigan, and this is one of the most interesting articles I've read in quite a while: The Truth Wears Off.

Quite possibly, one of the most excited announcers in history (and with good reason).

Matt Sakey's excellent Culture Clash column is back with a new installment: Suffer the Little Children.

From Sirius, and this is quite fascinating, it's Agatha Christie's secret life as an archaeologist. Also, and this is fascinating as well, it's Berdaches and gender variation among Native Americans. Then, it's The Physics of the Flower’s Bloom. One more, and it's quite tantalizing: Safer nuclear energy-via thorium?

From Michael M., and this is one of the most bizarre (yet strangely listenable) mash-ups I've ever seen: ambient music combined with live police channel radio feeds in major cities. Yes, it's a funny idea, but like I said, it's strangely listenable: You are listening to New York.

From Kevin W, it's Pop-Tarts to Goldfish: 7 Snack Foods to Make at Home .

From Jason Maddox, and this is for all the lawyers and the people who are amused by them, it's Identifying photocopy machine poses problem for Cuyahoga County official.

From Meg McReynolds, and this is surely one of the oddest (and yet cool) ideas for a blog ever: Law and the Multiverse: Superheroes, supervillains, and the law.

From John D'Angelo, and this is a staggering amount of information presented in a manner that's easy to grasp: radiation dose chart.

Well, it's the strangest link of the week, but seeing the picture makes hitting the link totally worth it: Product Defect Case Over Ear Candle Cleared for Trial.

From Dib O, also related to radiation, but incredibly beautiful: This Aurora Timelapse Will Leave You In Awe. Also, and this is an amazing story, it's Genius at work: 12-year-old is studying at IUPUI.

From Dirk Knemeyer, and while this is the last link of the week, it's still tremendously interesting: Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us.
