Pi Day Of The Century Is Here: 3.141592653
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

Pi Day 2015 epic

Do you like pi? I’m not talking about fruit or custard in a round pastry shell like those made with apples, cherries, or lemon meringue.

I am talking about a mathematical constant that shows up almost everywhere in our understanding of the universe, symbolized by the Greek letter “π”. This is pronounced “pi.” It is the ratio of the diameter of a circle to its circumference, or more plainly, the ratio of how tall a circle is to the distance traveled when it rolled exactly once around.

Every year, Pi Day is observed on 3/14, since 3.14 are the first three digits of pi. But twice today, 3/14/2015, we’ll get to see the clock hit the first 10 digits of pi — 3.141592653 — an occurrence that won’t happen again for another 100 years.

Working Hoverboard Can Be Yours For Just $10,000! (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Hendo Hoverboard

Back in March the internet exploded after a video of what appeared to be a real working hoverboard—the wheel-less, floating skateboard made famous by Back to the Future II—surfaced online. The video, as it turned out, was a Funny or Die hoax.

But people just love their Back to the Future technology dreams (I cannot WAIT for one of those fancy pizza rehydrators personally), so it was only a matter of time before the hoverboard showed up again. This time, however, it appears that the hoverboard, which is called the Hendo Hoverboard, actually works…and you can reserve yours for only $10,000.

Click on over to the other side for more and to see a video of the board in action.

Trailer For The Documentary About People Trying To Build Real Time Machines
The Movie God   |  

How to Build a Time Machine

Most of us can agree that real time travel—the use of some kind of machine or portal to go either back into the past or jump ahead to the future—is not something that’s going to happen. At least not until we learn how to dance with wormholes.

But that’s not stopping some people from trying to make actual working time machines and achieve that seemingly impossible dream of science fiction fans all over the world…and perhaps beyond.

A new documentary is being made by director Jay Cheel titled How to Build a Time Machine, and it follows two men who have devoted their lives to building time machines.

You can read a description and watch the trailer below.

How Heavy and Dangerous Would Thor’s Hammer Mjolnir Really Be If Made From A Star? (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Thor Hammer Mjolnir

A little over a year ago, astrophysicist and host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Neil deGrasse Tyson, said on the Twitter that if Thor’s fabled hammer Mjolnir were made of neutron star matter, the hammer would weigh as much as 300 BILLION elephants. No problem, sir. Get me two and let’s get to the curls.

It didn’t take long for a correction to deGrasse Tyson’s tweet, letting him know that the hammer was actually molded inside of a star, not made from it, and that it’s actually made of the metal Uru and, according to Marvel, weighs in at about 42 pounds.

42 pounds is nowhere near as amusing as the thought of 300 billion elephants, though, so what if Mjolnir really were made from a star? A new video has been made digging into not only how unbelievably heavy the hammer would be, but also how devastatingly deadly it would be. You can watch the video below!
