1: Your OTP? Ok, I know this stands for “one true pairing”, but allow me to list three, because the last two are derivatives of the first: Victorian Era Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Madame Vastra/Jenny Flint (from Doctor Who) and Data/Geordi La Forge (from Star Trek: The Next Generation)

2: Favourite Video Game? Although the Frogwares Sherlock Holmes series puts up a good fight, Professor Layton wins out. My favorite Professor Layton game used to be Diabolical Box, but I just finished Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright last week and am very enamored of it, so I’m not sure I can really decide.

3: Have you been outside your own country? Yes, a few times. I live near Chicago, but I’ve been to Germany and England twice, to Finland, Austria, and I was in Canada for about a day.

4: Last film you saw in the cinema? Um, probably Guardians of the Galaxy. I usually see movies in the summer or the winter; it’s TV season now.

5: Rugby or Football? neither.

6: Your biggest fear? I am so done with haunted abandoned carnivals ok just no

but seriously it’s probably having to speak in front of a really large audience

7: Best day of your life so far? Sitting on a bench, eating ice cream with my two friends near their house in Germany. The two weeks I spent there were the best in my life.

8: Favourite animal? American Kestrel. They’re tiny, awesome birds of prey. image

9: Guilty pleasure? Eating Nutella from the jar

10: Have any siblings? Yes, a younger brother and a younger sister.

11: Know any languages? My native language is English, and I’m also learning German, although I’m a lot better at reading and hearing it than I am writing and speaking it.

Okay, here are my questions:

1) What is your name? (can be anything, your nickname, first name, screen name, roller derby name, etc.)

2) What is your quest?

3) What is your favorite color?

4) Favorite video game character?

5) Favorite band/musician and/or song lyric?

6) Thing you’ve seen or done that you think is amazing but you feel like everyone you’ve told doesn’t really care?

7) Favorite book character?

8) Dream job?

9) If you could meet up with a person you regularly talk to on tumblr, what would you do together?

10) Favorite childhood toy and/or a story that goes with it?

11)  Have you ever met a really interesting person only once, like on vacation or at the store or something, and then never seen them again? Do you wish you knew what they were doing now, or that you could have talked to them more?

I tag curiouslypuzzling, annanstuff, callmecubone, cozniehaus, in-way-too-many-fandoms, fullmetalbebop (even though you’ll probably never get to it :P) and whoever else feels like it

'Invisibility cloak' uses lenses to bend light
A device called the Rochester Cloak uses an array of lenses to bend light, effectively rendering what is on the other side invisible to the eye. One of the problems with the cloaking devices developed to date — and it’s a big one — is that they really only work if both the viewer and whatever is being cloaked remain still. This, of course, is not entirely practical, but a difficult problem to solve. For the first time, researchers have made a cloaking device that works multidirectionally in three dimensions — using no specialised equipment, but four standard lenses.

Subtle poignant moments like this are what made the RTD era what it was.

Star Trek hasn’t even been around 50 years, and we already have communicators, tablets, computers and AI that nearly rival those on Starfleet ships, and so many more pieces of technology, not to mention people interested in STEM fields, as a DIRECT result of Trek

Imagine where another 48 years will take us
