To give you some perspective - according to some sources, if one bacteria will keep dividing like that for 36 hours - then the whole Earth will be covered in a 30 cm high surface layer of bacteria. "The Blob" movie will come true on a grand scale... We are lucky bacterias do not keep replicating like that all the rime.

Lenticulars at Sunrise

Photo by Mitch Sanders -
It was early morning just north of Shishaldon Island in the Bering Sea. I was woken to 'see something'. I made my way out on the deck of our trawler, and to my surprise there was the most intense, beautiful sunrise I had ever seen at sea. The snow covered, smoking crater of Shishaldon, a still active volcano in the Aleutian Island chain, capped off this magnificent display.

Check out our gallery of lenticulars and other extreme clouds here.


The Water Palace

Located in Jaipur, India, in the middle of a shallow lake, sometimes it's enchantingly lit up at night:

That picture which is labled incomprehensible,it is in czech lang. and I suppose it could be from MFF UK,where I study.It is by the way mathematic.(Most probably math. analysis)

The uncomprehensible picture is almost surely from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in Prague.
Apart from this I heared there is also one professor who writes on the blackboard with chalk in his right hand and straight after he cleans it with a sponge in his left hand. The students really have to write fast...
