Video: MorpHex Sphere Hexapod Robot

Norwegian engineer Kåre Halvorsen built this robot sphere in his spare time, with six retractable, expanding legs that let it dance when it’s not rolling.

The main goal of this project was to make a hexapod robot that could transform into a sphere shape and back. In “sphere mode” the robot should be able to roll freely like a ball.

The giant Gamburtsev Mountain Range discovered in the 1950s below the Antarctic ice, is now believed to have been formed over a billion year ago!

Scientists say they can now explain the existence of what are perhaps Earth’s most extraordinary mountains – the Gamburtsevs are the size of the European Alps and yet they are totally buried beneath the Antarctic ice.

Video: Massive Solar Eruption 7th June 2011

Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has captured a massive eruption on the Sun. The event took place early Tuesday morning (7th June 2011) and sparked all sorts of fears from the end of the world to concerns the solar flare may cause disruption to communication systems around the globe, although the angle of the eruption probably means effects on Earth will probably be small.
