“Calls of the wild is a mass participation project about public opinion of certain natural sounds. The natural world is rich not just in things to see but also things to hear. Surprisingly, there’s very little scientific evidence about how these sounds can affect people psychologically.”
Part of the Science Week UK 2013. This experiment asks you to consider your emotional responses to bird calls posed to you in different scenarios. If you have a few minutes free its pretty interesting.
The experiment is here.

People Movin. Created by little ark.
This neat project visualizes the data of the flows of people globally. I ran a quick search for Nepal & India it’s interesting to see the small differences in where people go and how many. Just from this it’s interesting to see that Nepal is actually a top destination for Indians however not the other way. It’s worth a look.
Data Sources (All the presented data are the latest available as of 2010)
How A Bubble Bursts.
A fantastic example of Chronophtography, Chrono-meaning time, & Photography meaning the art of taking photographs. This particular one was taken by Lucien Bull in 1905. These types of images helped science because they could capture the process in action and helped scientists observe moments to fast to see for the naked eye. Look here for more examples.
Golden Spike Is Sending Nations and People To The Moon.
Pretty cool and futuristic. The Golden Spike is a private business that is basically crowd funding to start sending explorers to the moon. The funding options range from $10 which would give in return a certificate of thanks all the way to $50,000 to get yourself a VIP journey to the moon.
They mean business you can check out their crowd funding site here.
Their tag line “Make a contribution today, and together we can extend our reach—right to the Moon.”
A Decade of DIY Biology.
An infographic of the triple helix of bioscience starting with the first artificial virus developed in 2002 to the announcement of £20 million government funding for synthetic biology research in 2012. All those events on it are definitely worth checking out.
