Helioseismology / Listening to the inside of the Sun MP3

Although in general I have tremendous faith in science, there are a few concepts I’ve always had some trouble grasping. For example, textbooks have told us for decades—with great certainty—details about the interior of the Earth. We know how thick the crust and mantle are, what the core is made of, and how hot it is (among many other facts), even though no one has managed to dig or drill even hal... Source: itotd.com

    Automatic Transmissions for Bicycles / Reinventing the two-wheeler MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! When I first learned to drive, I learned on a car with a manual transmission. It never seemed especially difficult because that was what I got used to. In fact, the first time I had to drive an automatic, I remember being very confused. What was I supposed to do with my left foot? Do I not have to shift at all? And if itâ€...

    Bahasa Indonesia / The complex story of a simple language MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! During college I spent a summer in Indonesia, and naturally I picked up a bit of the language. When I say “the language,” I’m referring to Indonesian or, as it is known in Indonesian, Bahasa Indonesia (“language of Indonesia”). This statement is not as obvious as it may sound; Indonesia is home to...

    The Dvorak Keyboard Controversy / Chasing QWERTY MP3

    When I was first learning to type, many years ago, I asked the same question everyone else asks: why are the keys arranged so stupidly? Why aren’t they laid out in a more logical order, as in, just to take one random example, alphabetically? The answer I’ve heard countless times is that the first typewriter keyboards were arranged alphabetically, but that caused mechanical problems—once typists became reasonabl...

    Lightsabres / The myth and technology of the Jedi weapon MP3

    Like most people, I thoroughly enjoyed the three original Star Wars films, and like most people, I found the prequel installments rather disappointing. The special effects and visual quality were dramatically improved, but the stories left much to be desired, the acting was mediocre, and the writing had none of the intensity or sparkle of the originals. After “Episode I: The Phantom Menace” appeared, I wa...

    Superautomatic Coffee Machines / The lazy way to make a perfect cup of coffee MP3

    There are those who believe half the pleasure of a great cup of coffee comes from the ritual of making it. The details of the ritual vary from person to person and place to place, but the desired effect is the same: a perfect cup of hot, rich, fresh coffee. “Perfect,” of course, is quite subjective. Among people who take coffee very seriously, there is a great deal of disagreement as to what types of bea...
