Animated Factorization Diagrams


"...and thus was born the Factor Conga: a promenade of primes, composites, and their constituents, arranged with an aesthetically-tuned variation of Yorgey's rules, one per second.

Please play with the interactive, and do give it a minute to hit its stride. Or whirl there with a tap or two of the fast forward button.

This is what the dance clubs look like on Alpha Centauri."

Spot The International Space Station


"Did you know you can see the International Space Station from your house? As the third brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon, the space station is easy to see if you know where and when to look for it."

"NASA's Spot the Station service sends you an email or text message a few hours before the space station passes over your house."

Phone Spell & Anagrams


You know how on older phones you had 3 or 4 letters assigned to each number key? Well this means that you can make various words and phrases from phone numbers. Stick your phone number in and see what it comes back with.

If you like your anagrams then look at this site - put a word in and it will spit out all the anagram possibilities. 'Baan Liam' came out as 'Labia Man' and yeah I like my labias :-))

If that's not enough then try the anagram hall of fame for the best anagrams out there.

Faking ghost photos through double exposure and in-the-lab trickery has been around as long as photography itself; and today, computer graphics programs can easily and convincingly create ghost images. But these photos are generally thought to be untouched, genuine portraits of the unexplained."

This portrait of "The Brown Lady" ghost is arguably the most famous and well-regarded ghost photograph ever taken. The ghost is thought to be that of Lady Dorothy Townshend, wife of Charles Townshend, 2nd Viscount of Raynham, residents of Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England in the early 1700s. It was rumored that Dorothy, before her marriage to Charles, had been the mistress of Lord Wharton. Charles suspected Dorothy of infidelity. Although according to legal records she died and was buried in 1726, it was suspected that the funeral was a sham and that Charles had locked his wife away in a remote corner of the house until her death many years later...
