What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’
Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

"A new phase-changing material built from wax and foam developed by researchers at MIT is capable of switching between hard and soft states."
MIT researchers are trying to change the paradigm of your typical robot by mimicking organic substances. The idea is that the robot should be soft to conform to a particular environment, and interact with humans, though rigid enough to actually do a procedure. They can achieve this by applying heat at particular points to deform the object, then applying coolness to make the object rigid again.
"Robots built from this material would be able to operate more like biological systems with applications ranging from difficult search and rescue operations, squeezing through rubble looking for survivors, to deformable surgical robots that could move through the body to reach a particular point without damaging any of the organs or vessels along the way."
The last gif is a example of bendable articulation. :D
Apollo 11 EVA Training
All of the photographs from the moon are of Buzz Aldrin taken by Neil. We never got to see the two of them together on the surface of the moon besides the 16mm film of them planting the American flag. Thats why I love these so much. You can get a perspective of what it looked like. Two of the first human beings ever to set foot on the moon, performing tasks like core samples and setting up antennas.
