Imagine a zoo where animals are free to roam while humans quietly observe. Danish architects BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) set out to make this a reality with their plan for redesigning Zootopia, a zoo in the city of Givskud. Far from “traditional” zoos where the cages set the distinction between man and beast, BIG’s plan is to create an atmosphere that is experiential to both animals and humans.

This is magnificent.
But will increasing global temperatures and their effect on snowfall reduce the number of bedsheet entanglement deaths?

Time to get messy, light some stuff on fire, and use food products in ways they were never intended! Parents and teachers across the internet have found fun ways to teach kids science, and have documented the experiments for the rest of us. Here are 15 hands-on science lessons that will stick in a kid’s brain far longer than anything they get from a textbook.

Happy Easter! Sometimes you have to put on a brave face and pretend you’re happy until you believe it.
A musical reminder of tonight’s full lunar eclipse!
Tonight, for the first time since 2011, folks in North America will get the chance to see a total lunar eclipse. It’s supposed to start in earnest around 2 AM on the east coast (11 PM west coast).
Unfortunately I think clouds will spoil the fun for me (and most people on the east coast). But I woke with this song stuck in my head and ended up recording it before I headed out for work with my phone. (My sincerest apologies to Bonnie Tyler)
You can find more detailed information about the eclipse here.
And if you miss it this time, good news: Another blood moon is forecast for October, and again next April.
The eclipse photo I use in the video was taken in 2011 by Fred Espenak (NASA Marshall Space Center).
Related to the last, but in musical form.
