A passenger aboard an American Airlines flight from San Jose, California to Houston, Texas, managed to snap a series of photographs of a giant metallic disc in the Nevada desert. There was a 'blinding bright light' in the desert below near Luning and Gabbs that caught his eye at first. "I saw a large silver disc that appeared to be in the middle of the desert. This disc was shooting orb like lights into the air. The disc itself had multiple lights that were blinding to the eyes. I pulled out my phone and took pictures until my phone died," said the passenger. Continue reading for a video titled "Top CIA Secrets of Area 51: Real Truth Behind".
Most bird strike accidents occur when there is a collision involving a winged animal and the windscreen. These cause annual damages that have been estimated at $400-million within the US alone, and up to $1.2-billion worldwide. In addition to property damage, collisions between man-made structures and conveyances and birds is a contributing factor, among many others, to the worldwide decline of many avian species.

The Black Knight Satellite is a popular topic among conspiracy theorists, and now, there's a full short film about the mysterious object supposedly orbiting Earth. Produced by Pepsi, "Black Knight Decoded" tells the story of a father (David Oyelowo), his daughter (Layla Crawford) and his co-conspirator (Pinto) on their quest to decode radio signals transmitted from the mysterious satellite. Their efforts to respond was thwarted by the government, and so the group relies on support from communities around the world to come together to communicate universal messages of hope, unity and peace. Most of the space footage was captured by UrtheCast's ultra high-definition cameras aboard the International Space Station. Continue reading for a video about the real Black Knight Satellite.
Called UR2, this sleeper of a Lamborghini Huracan is actually the world's fastest. The 2,300-horsepower beast, powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V10 engine, set a new standing half-mile world record (for street-legal cars) by achieving 238.6 mph in the half-mile pass. One other notable modification was swapping out the dual-clutch transmission for a much quicker sequential shifter. Continue reading for an earlier video of this beast, when it was just pushing 2100+ horsepower.
While not much is known about the EcoLog 590D, it's definitely a machine that could be mistaken for a science-fiction prop. It basically consists of a LogMax 7000 head that can pick up trees like you would a stick, and saw them into several pieces while separating the leafy section. Sure, this may not be available to everyday consumers, but even if it were, expect a price tag north of $200,000 Continue reading for three more videos.
Photographer Justin Majeczky just happened to be on Slacker Hill above the Golden Gate Bridge when the USS California launched a Trident D5 ballistic missile last night, and this incredible video ensued. "By a stroke of dumb luck my friend Abe and myself were on slacker hill shooting timelapse photography of the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see the missile enter the frame from the upper right hand corner. We noticed the object immediately and I stopped my time-lapse to record some video," said Majeczky.

For their latest stunt, the Jetman Dubai aerial aerobatics showcase their flying skills in a crazy video in which they keep pace with a massive Emirates A380. As you can see, the two-winged jetpack (powered by four Jet-Cat P200 jet engines) flyers swarm around the aircraft at about 1,200-meters as they swoop over Dubai, with the Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa as the backdrop. The daredevils fly at about 300kph over the plane and maneuver alongside its wings, falling into formation on either side before breaking away.Continue reading for two more videos of Yves "Jetman" Rossy, and more information.
The F-35 project has cost $3.5-billion thus far, and it's eight years late to boot, but the craft has finally fired its first shots (GAU)-22/A 25mm Gatling gun system shots in the air. Approximately, three bursts of one 30 rounds and two 60 rounds each were fired from the aircraft's four-barrel, 25-millimeter Gatling gun, which is hidden behind closed doors to reduce its radar cross section until the trigger is pulled.

This crazy video is not a work of Adobe After Effects, but just pure science. When a stream of water is exposed to a 24Hz speaker producing a sine wave, and recorded with a 24FPS camera, it appears to match the vibration of the air in a zigzag pattern. Here's how to try this at home: "Run the rubber hose down past the speaker so that the hose touches the speaker. Leave about 1 or 2 inches of the hose hanging past the bottom of the speaker. Secure the hose to the speaker with tape or whatever works best for you. The goal is to make sure the hose is touching the actual speaker so that when the speaker produces sound (vibrates) it will vibrate the hose. Set up your camera and switch it to 24 fps. The higher the shutter speed the better the results. But also keep in the mind that the higher your shutter speed, the more light you need. Run an audio cable from your computer to the speaker. Set your tone generating software to 24hz and hit play. Turn on the water. Now look through the camera and watch the magic begin. If you want the water to look like it's moving backward set the frequency to 23hz. If you want to look like it's moving forward in slow motion set it to 25hz."
