These photos are shadowgraphs of a hydrogen flame exploding inside a balloon. The shadowgraph optical technique highlights density and temperature variations through their effect on a fluid’s refractive index. Here we see that the hydrogen flame has a strong cellular structure and is more turbulent than a methane flame. The cellular structure is a sign of an instability in the curved flame front. The instability and accompanying cellular appearance are a result of the complicated transport and reaction of fuel and oxidizer inside the flame. (Photo credits: P. Julien et al.)

KICKSTARTER TO PRINT VOLUME 1 OF TODD & PETUNIA JUST LAUNCHED!!!!!!!!!!

Yes… this is the thing I’ve been working on secretly for the last little while… I’m biting my nails like nuts…

This is a Kickstarter to fund the printing for volume 1 of Todd Allison & the Petunia Violet. It’s an approximately 176 pages full-colour book with a dust jacket and a pull-out poster. The book will be 7 by 9 inches. It’s basically my dream book.

If you go to the Kickstarter page, you can watch a video where I talk about my comic in a fragile voice. PLEASE… ENJOY… (OR NOT…) 

EVEN IF YOU CAN’T CONTRIBUTE, I’D REALLY APPRECIATE REBLOGS TO HELP SPREAD THE WORD… THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

A hovercraft that rides like a motorcycle


With what looks like a Speeder Bike from Star Wars, UCLA alum and aerospace engineer Mark DeRoche has developed a new type of hovercraft known as The Aero-X.  When onboard the rider feels like they’re driving a motorcycle.

The idea was to build a vehicle that could quickly glide over rough terrain. Your cruising speed could top out at 45mph at 10 feet off the ground on this thing.  DeRoche says it could be used by farmers, security personnel or search and rescue missions, but admits that it could also be for those who want to joyride out in the desert.

An unmanned version is also in the works for agricultural uses such as crop dusting large areas of land.
