The speed of light is torturously slow, and these 3 simple animations by a scientist at NASA prove it

The speed of light in a vacuum is about 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second). A scientist at NASA animated how long it takes light to travel around Earth, as well as between the planet, its moon, and Mars. The physics animations show just how fast (and slow) the speed limit of the universe can be. A series of new animations by a NASA scientist show just how zippy — and also torturously slow — the speed of light can be. Light-speed is the fastest that any material object ca...

The Legendary Guerlain Mitsouko Fragrance Turns 100!

    "On every occasion when I am asked to name my favorite fragrance, or the best fragrance ever, or the fragrance I would take with me if I had to move to Mars for tax reasons, I always answer Mitsouko.

Wine on Mars? The World's Oldest Wine-Making Country Wants to Make It Happen

The first human colonists on Mars will have to forgo many of the creature comforts of Earth -- things like enjoying an ozone layer, for example, or opting out of rearing genetically engineered Martian babies.
