Friday Links!

Leading off this week, would you like to hear a black hole? Data Sonification: Black Hole at the Center of the Perseus Galaxy Cluster (X-ray)

This is fascinating (it'll be renamed Elon Musk disease in twenty years): Nobel disease.

From C. Lee, and it's terrific: Kurosawa Akira: Films of Love and Justice. Another creative giant: Dostoevsky’s 200th Birthday and His Living Legacy. This is phenomenal: From seawater to drinking water, with the push of a button. This is fascinating in every way: A Brief Compendium of Modernist Homes for Movie Villains with Flawless Taste. This is delightful: An Ode to what they call “Duck Architecture”. This is a terrific idea: How Public Libraries Are Seeding America’s Gardens

From Ken Piper, and this is amazing: Hubble Finds a Massive Planet – 9 Times the Size of Jupiter – Forming Through a Violent Process. This is my surprised face: Owners left with worthless NFTs after F1 Delta Time racing game shuts down. I mean, it is distinct: Razer's Headquarters Looks Like One Of Its Gaming Peripherals. This is promising: What Is a Graphene Battery, and How Will It Transform Tech? 

From Tim C., and it's fascinating: mechanical watch.

From Wally, and it isn't creepy at all: Creepy dolls covered in barnacles or missing their limbs keep washing up on Texas beaches. This was a hell of a ride, one of the greatest I've ever seen: This angle of Rich Strike winning the KentuckyDerby is nuts. This is some of the best tornado footage I've ever seen (and there are some f-bombs, for obvious reasons, so maybe NSFW): EF-3 Tornado Hits Andover, Kansas - Apr. 29, 2022. Just great: An Autonomous Drone Swarm Can Now Chase You Through a Forest Without Crashing. Next-level commentary: The Platypus Conspiracy.
