Light passing through the hexagonal ice prisms is deflected twice, which produces deviation angles ranging from 22° to 50°. Lesser deviation results in a brighter halo along the inner edge of the circle, while greater deviation contribute to the weaker outer part of the halo. As no light is refracted at smaller angles than 22° the sky is darker inside the halo.
This magnificent eagle was created by Russian artist Sergey Bobkov, who specializes in making animals using wood chips cut from Siberian cedar.
“Bobkov, who received a patent on manufacturing art sculptures made of cutting chips, has made a total of 15 life-size wooden sculptures of Siberian birds and animals. The artist is known to study an animal’s anatomy and habits before creating these one-of-a-kind sculptures.”
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
Every likes to say how Star Trek is “philosophical” but really that’s when it’s at its WORST. Star Trek is at its best when it’s focusing on the interpersonal relationships of the crew and others. The best of any Star Trek is City on the Edge of Forever which has some interesting “philosophical” subtext but the main crux of it is Kirk falling in LOVE and struggling with his choosing love over duty. Do I give a shit about Picard learning a new language in Darmok blah blahblah at Tenagra? NO. Formla for good Star Trek: Drop the intellectual BS and focus on the characters which Abrams does and NAILS (In the first one at least).
P.S. In like another sentence he talks about how Star Trek is his favorite show ever so….
