NASA: Looking Down a Well, A Brief History of Geodesy

Geodesy is a field of study that deals with the measurement and representation of the Earth, and it all started when a clever human named Eratosthenes discovered that you could measure the circumference of the Earth by looking down a well.

Over time, the field of geodesy has expanded and evolved dramatically, and NASA uses technology like radio telescopes, ground surveys, and satellites to contribute. Learn more about geodesy in this video.

I Paint

"We experience the world from our own perspective. That's why I'm not coming up with a complicated story for this project, but I will leave the interpretation entirely up to you. I know but one single truth: Nothing is really true. That is our show... All the paintings in my short film are one collection together. And this collection is far from finished. At the end of this year I will have completed the paintings and exhibit them in a place undecided yet..."

This Is My Home

On an unseasonably warm November night in Manhattan on our way to get ice cream, we stumbled upon what appeared to be a vintage shop, brightly lit display window and all. As we began to walk in, a man sitting out front warned us that we were welcome to explore, but nothing inside was for sale. Our interests piqued, we began to browse through the collections the man out front had built throughout his life. This is a story of a man and his home.


Chinese Soldiers Pass around Live Grenade in Military Training Exercise

Military training is an intense business, involving discipline, precision, and reserves of courage that can be called upon in the midst of battle.

But for soldiers undergoing training in the People's Liberation Army of China that's taken to a whole different level -- as one of their exercises involves a life-and-death game of 'hot potato' with a live grenade.

Incredible video footage shows Chinese troops stationed in Hong Kong passing around the live explosive from one soldier to the next until the last one finally throws it in the hole.

The soldiers then leap out of the way before it explodes, covering their heads for protection.
The clip shows them again doing the exercise, standing around a large hole.

Each soldier deliberately takes the explosives in both hands and twists slightly at the torso before handing it off to the next soldier.

The last soldier to hold the grenade must make sure it lands on the pond-side of the hole, a decidedly difficult task given the circumstances.

All soldiers then leap to the ground as the C4 detonates, sending piles of dirt and dust into the air.

The exercise is just one of many used by the PLA.

As with militaries across the world, the PLA instil their soldiers with specialised skills and advanced training.

The video shows the soldiers shooting flags that unfurl when shot, firing missiles and rifles, and leaping through flaming hoops.

The PLA was founded in 1927 during the Nanchang Uprising as they fought against the Nationalist Party of China's anti-communist purges and has nearly three million members.
