Germania: The Nazi's Monumental Plans for Berlin

Here is a fascinating 3-D modelled flyby of Nazi Germany's planned architectural makeover of Berlin. Hitler intended to establish a World Capital he called Germania (strangely, this is the Russian term for Germany) with some of the most colossal buildings ever conceived. The Volkshalle (People's Hall) was designed by Hitler himself (read more about Germania's planned monumental architecture here).

A Perfect Storm of Turbulent Gases STScI-PRC2003-13 (AP Photo/ NASA)

"Resembling the fury of a raging sea, the image above actually shows a bubbly ocean of glowing hydrogen gas and small amounts of other elements such as oxygen and sulfur - a small region within M17, a hotbed of star formation. M17, also known as the Omega or Swan Nebula, is located about 5,500 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius. The wave-like patterns of gas have been sculpted and illuminated by a torrent of ultraviolet radiation from young, massive stars, which lie outside the picture to the upper left. The glow of these patterns accentuates the three-dimensional structure of the gases. The ultraviolet radiation is carving and heating the surfaces of cold hydrogen gas clouds. The warmed surfaces glow orange and red in this photograph."

Speaking of the Russian Doomsday Machine ("The Perimeter", or "The Dead Hand")

The first article linked to above is a chilling look at an automatic nuclear launch system that unleashes once it decides that a full-scale nuclear attack on Russia is taking place. Nobody knows exactly where the "Perimeter" system robot brain resides, but there are some sites that have been on American radar for some time.

Here are photos of at least one such ballistic nuclear installation: Kosvin Kamen, deep in the Ural Mountains. The location of this nuclear base is well-known in the West, but what exactly hides beneath the pretty mountain shown below, is open to conjecture. The eye-witnesses in the nearby village testify that this mountain is completely honeycombed with tunnels, with more trucks and construction coming to the site.



These are the "control missiles", or "master missiles". They launch first, and once safely airborne activate the launch codes for all other Russian nukes (including the ones on the submarines, and on heavy bombers):





The "Dead Hand" system would still require a human touch: a soldier somewhere deep in the bunker will need to actually push the button, before all Hell breaks loose:

Street Artist Cyclops' New Show in London

Lucas Price - aka Cyclops - is a new star in the urban art world; his debut show running from October 15-November 13 show marks his ascension from a life on the streets to one of the UK’s bestselling graffiti-inspired artists.

This image particularly strikes a chord:

"Featuring the artist’s irreverent and often politically-loaded satire as well as visual commentary on society’s dark underbelly, this promises to be the most audacious debut show of the year."

Another great exhibition is taking place in West Hollywood, California, through Saturday, September 26, 2009 - "The Machine in the Garden", featuring original paintings by Tristan Shane and four other steampunk-oriented artists:

See What Can't Be Seen

Send your sample to ASPEX, a leading producer of scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and microanalysis software, and have them scan it for you!.



Yes, you heard right, we are talking about a free, SEM scan of any sample you'd like to send them. You could send a piece of glass, some broccoli, pocket lint perhaps... anything you'd like to see a picture of under a powerful microscope. Once they receive the sample, they'll post the resulting picture online for you and all of your friends to see. Hopefully, you can find some pretty intriguing stuff lying around your homes or offices to scan!


(images credit: ASPEX Corp. EDX Spectroscopy)

To send a sample, you need to download and fill out this form from the ASPEX website. Then mail it along with the sample to:

ASPEX Corporation
Free Sample Submissions
175 Sheffield Dr.
Delmont, PA 15626

Once ASPEX has completed the scan, the images and report will be posted on their website on this page. It should take about two weeks for the results to post to the ASPEX website, and they will also notify submitters via email. Samples scanned for free will not be returned.

Something Entirely Weird and Addictive

See if you can resist reading this great anthology of "flash fiction" from a roster of talented "new weird" writers, edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. The cover itself speaks volumes about the dizzying heights of literary madness attained inside the book's covers. I predict that this sort of "flash fiction" will become highly contagious, and you might even get to writing a vignette or two yourself. Read more about it here.



Contributors include Peter Straub, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Brian Evenson, Henry Kaiser, Gene Wolfe, Hal Duncan, Jeffrey Ford, Rikki Ducornet, Holly Phillips, Stephen R. Donaldson, K.J. Bishop, Michael Swanwick, Ellen Kushner, Daniel Abraham, Jay Lake, Liz Williams, Tanith Lee, Sarah Monette, Conrad Williams, and Marly Youmans.
