From Solid Cat: Spring Break
A group of Estonian students discovered that children are involved in more than a thousand accidents a year at school, in the home, in playgrounds, or on the roads, and are often left "injured, in a state of shock, or just in need of comfort."

To Estonia, for thinking about the children, we salute you. PAWS UP!

People are amazed by slow-mo videos capturing ultra-fast movement at around 70,000 frames per second, but what if I told you a new imaging system can capture images at 1,000,000,000,000 fps (as in one trillion)?
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab have developed an imaging system that captures images at such a high temporal resolution that the movement of light can be visualized. Yes, that's right, you can actually see photons travel through space!

To MIT Media, for reminding us that science freakin' rules, we salute you. PAWS UP!
