    "The Waggoner Ranch in north Texas is slightly smaller than Rhode Island and is the largest ranch in the U.S. within a single fence. Everything about it is Texas-scale: the colorful history, the sprawl, the oil that lies beneath it, and the feud among the heirs that is forcing a court-ordered sale. This old-fashioned working ranch comes with 6,800 cattle, 500 quarter horses, more than 1,000 producing oil wells, nearly 30,000 acres of farmland and more than 150 years of history. The price tag: $725 Million. " [ link ]

    The enduring image of the story Gulliver’s Travels is Gulliver tied down while tiny Lilliputians walk over his body. The scene is recreated well at Gulliver’s Park in Valencia, Spain.
    "The Gulliver Park is probably the most inspired playground I’ve ever seen. Valencia’s Fallas artists have created a giant replica of Jonathan Swift’s hero in the Turia Riverbed, sprawled out on the ground and bound by ropes. The body is cleverly designed, with Gulliver’s hair and jacket serving as slides, folds in his sleeves and pants becoming stairs, and the ropes which trap him knotted for climbing."

    Audi has announced that it's teaming up with Part-Time Scientists, a German team working to put its rover on the moon. The carmaker says it's providing the Quattro's four-wheel drive tech, as well as expertise in lightweight construction and piloted driving. Google's Lunar XPRIZE offers a $30 million prize for the first team to get a rover to the moon, cover 500 meters of it, and broadcast high-definition video back to Earth as it goes. The aim is to challenge engineers and scientists around the world into develop low-cost (robotic) ways of exploring space. Audi and Part-Time Scientists plan to land their new rover on the same site where Apollo 17 completed the last manned mission to the moon. The plan to launch it some time in 2017. Let’s wait and see if they’re successful

    This fellow with a handsome mug is a lamprey, a type of fish. It's a parasite that attaches itself to other fish with its tooth-filled sucker mouth, then sucks the life out of its host. He and his friends have been dropping out of the sky outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. At least four of have been found and counted by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. One was captured alive. CNN reports:
    Most were dead, but one was found alive outside a Fairbanks thrift store.
    "Two gentleman came in and asked if we have a bucket with water because there's an eel in your parking lot," said the store's manager, Sue Valdrow. She put the fish, which was about a foot long, into a container of water and called officials.

    The birds are likely catching the fish from the Chena River and then dropping them during their flight.

    LightSail's tiny solar sail deployment motor sprung to life Sunday afternoon, marking an important milestone for The Planetary Society’s nail-biting test mission. Sail deployment began at 3:47 p.m. EDT (19:47 UTC) off the coast of Baja California, Mexico, as the spacecraft traveled northwest to southeast.
    Telemetry received on the ground showed motor counts climbing to the halfway point before LightSail traveled out of range. Power levels were consistent with ground-based deployment tests, and the spacecraft’s cameras were on. "All indications are that the solar sail deployment was proceeding nominally," wrote mission manager David Spencer in an email update. [ link ]

    This new image was captured by Hubble. NASA explains:
    "Nasty One was identified as a Wolf-Rayet star, a rapidly evolving star that is much more massive than our sun. The star loses its hydrogen-filled outer layers quickly, exposing its super-hot and extremely bright helium-burning core... But Nasty One doesn’t look like a typical Wolf-Rayet star. The astronomers using Hubble had expected to see twin lobes of gas flowing from opposite sides of the star, perhaps similar to those emanating from the massive star Eta Carinae, which is a Wolf-Rayet candidate. Instead, Hubble revealed a pancake-shaped disk of gas encircling the star. The vast disk is nearly 2 trillion miles wide."

    Towpaths in London, Birmingham, and Manchester recently got a new paint job with the addition of duck lanes. The Canal & River Trust has painted a white line marking off areas to be used by birds with a stenciled silhouette of a duck. You can follow them at #sharethespace.
    “We’ve painted in duck lanes on the tow path, just to highlight…[that] there’s only so much space you can share..[a]nd actually probably ducks need the priority,” Dick Vincent, a London Towpath Ranger told ruptly.tv

    Airbnb's fully functioning floating house sets sail along the river thames. This is a house with a fully functional kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms . The dwelling stands at eight meters in height and weighs 70 tonnes. There’s a steering wheel in that kitchen, which is something that most household kitchens can’t boast of. It’s a lot more than a houseboat. There’s a backyard with a living apple tree, real grass, and a doghouse. Airbnb offers it for rent until May 22.

    "I think we're going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we're going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years," NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan said Tuesday (April 7) during a panel discussion that focused on the space agency's efforts to search for habitable worlds and alien life.
     "We know where to look. We know how to look," Stofan added during the event, which was webcast live. "In most cases we have the technology, and we're on a path to implementing it. And so I think we're definitely on the road."  [ link ]

    Three-year-old Tanner Jensen and his 20-month-old brother Skyler were both born with a rare genetic condition known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy which means they can’t walk, crawl, control their heads, or even lift their arms. But life for the young brothers will soon be improving thanks to students at Brigham Young University who built the pair a set of tiny affordable electric wheelchairs. Motorized wheelchairs for younger children already exist, but they can end up costing upwards of $15,000 which many families can’t afford. So five undergraduate mechanical engineering students from BYU’s Engineering Capstone program challenged themselves to build the world’s smallest electric wheelchair for the Jensen brothers.
    The chair is made with a PVC frame (strong enough for a child up to 50 pounds or about 6 years old) and is controlled by an armrest-mounted joystick like other chairs. The students produced the chair for under $495, making it likely the world’s least expensive motorized wheelchair—and possibly lightest at just over 20 pounds. [ Brigham Young University ]
