Mad Quickies: Street Art Portals, Light Wave/Particle Duality Imaged, HMS Beagle in Lego and More!

It’s been quite a crazy week here at The Lab – Our 4th birthday, the launch of our own podcast with it’s requisite Twitter and Facebook accounts, (Should we make an Ello account too?) oh and more snow. Well, at least where I am in the northeastern United States. But let’s talk Quickies. You need them and I’ve got them.

Let’s start with the big news – The wave / particle duality of light has been imaged for the first time.

This one is majorly cool. Nasa’s Dawn probe is scheduled to enter orbit around the dwarf planet Ceres this Friday. Judging from the images we’ve received so far, Ceres seems to have a couple of bright spots. What can they be?

Darwin’s HMS Beagle in Lego form? Let’s explore this.

And following the Lego HMS Beagle, the first baby tortoises have been born in the wild in the Galapagos in 100 years.

I’m not making this up, I swear. Music composed for cats.

These colorful trompe-l’œil portals are the work of German street artist 1010 and wow wow wow. Some more of this gorgeousness at Colossal.
