Carbon Fiber Stormtrooper

Engineering technician Leonard Carson at San Diego Composites had always wanted a carbon fiber Stormtrooper suit to call his own. So, he convinced three of his co-workers to turn his idea into a reality. Since they already work for a composites company, sourcing the material needed wasn't hard at all. They built a total of 4 complete suits, all of which have not yet been put up for sale. Continue reading for more images Star Wars fans will appreciate.

Habitable Planets

In astronomy and astrobiology, the Goldilocks zone is the region around a star where a planet with sufficient atmospheric pressure can maintain liquid water on its surface. A potentially habitable planet implies a terrestrial planet within the Goldilocks zone and with conditions roughly comparable to those of Earth. Although only about a dozen planets have been confirmed in the habitable zone, the Kepler spacecraft has identified a further 54 candidates and current estimates indicate that there are "at least 500 million" planets in habitable zones in the Milky Way.

That's right, this entire sculpture was hand-carved from a single block of laminated mahogany. The drape effect was achieved by bleaching that section of wood and the base a walnut brown. According to the Smithsonian Institute, "Its haunting stillness and silence suggest eternity - the absence of time." Continue reading for more pictures.

Green Tea Kit-Kats are nothing new, but what about Kinako Ohagi, Chunky Peanut Butter, and Ginger Ale? The origins of what is now known as the "Kit Kat" brand go back to 1911, when Rowntree's, a confectionery company based in York in the United Kingdom, trademarked the terms "Kit Cat" and "Kit Kat". Although the terms were not immediately used, the first conception of the Kit Kat appeared in the 1920s, when Rowntree launched a brand of boxed chocolates entitled "Kit Cat". This continued into the 1930s, when Rowntree's shifted focus and production onto its "Black Magic" and "Dairy Box" brands.
