Hairy Fractals

This is not "hair", and not strictly "fractals" (though it looks like it). This is a rather neat p:0 demo reel of Václav Pajkrt:

Hubble scores again: Arp 147 - Interacting Galaxies:

More info

"The two galaxies happen to be oriented so that they appear to mark the number 10. The left-most galaxy, or the "one" in this image, is relatively undisturbed apart from a smooth ring of starlight. The right-most galaxy, resembling a zero, exhibits a clumpy, blue ring of intense star formation... Arp 147 lies in the constellation Cetus, and it is more than 400 million light-years away from Earth."

My Other Car is a Jet

Arthur van Poppel has built a jet that's so small that you can drive it around your mall parking lot. It's a copy of the F-35 from the Joing Strike Fighter Program and it can deploy the smoke, water and confetti effects (short of actual flying).
