The Internet Is Leaking of the day: There are countless t-shirts with the face of human meme Nic Cage on them, but now we have confirmation that the man himself owns one. We also now know he wears it with a cowboy hat, beaded necklaces, frilled chaps, a cane, and sunglasses indoors at a Guns N’ Roses gig. The world is a remarkably strange place.

Nic Cage has transcended his human avatar and we are not worthy of being in his presence

holy shit

I play two parts in tonight’s film, one a gentleman, the other a gentleman possessed by the spirit of an evil warlock.

MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION In the constellation of Serpens Caput (Serpent’s Head), this tightly-packed group of galaxies is slowly tearing itself apart. These beautiful scattered jewels are collectively known as Seyfert’s Sextet, but although the name implies “six,” only four of the visible galaxies are locked in the dance of death. The still-intact spiral galaxy near the middle of the image is about five times more distant than the main group, and the sixth member is actually a tidal tail resulting from gravitational interactions. The gravitational forces that are warping and blurring these galaxies may someday pull them together into one single galaxy, but such cosmic changes take time. The gravitational interactions we see here happened over billions of years, and the dance is likely to last billions more. -RLOImage: NASA/ESA, J. English (U. Manitoba), S. Hunsberger, S. Zonak, J.

Three years ago, researchers fired whisky to the International Space Station as part of an experiment to see how the conditions in space change flavours. Next month, the whisky will return to Earth.

Scotland’s contribution to space research. Good job.

Stonehenge secrets revealed by underground map

Archaeologists have unveiled the most detailed map ever produced of the earth beneath Stonehenge and its surrounds.

They combined different instruments to scan the area to a depth of three metres, with unprecedented resolution.

Early results suggest that the iconic monument did not stand alone, but was accompanied by 17 neighbouring shrines.

Future, detailed analysis of this vast collection of data will produce a brand new account of how Stonehenge’s landscape evolved over time.

Among the surprises yielded by the research are traces of up to 60 huge stones or pillars which formed part of the 1.5km-wide “super henge” previously identified at nearby Durrington Walls. Read more.
