NASA created the massive fountain as part of a test for its Space Launch System, scheduled to launch for the first time in 2020.

It will be the largest, most powerful rocket NASA has ever built. Standing upright, the SLS will reach 322 feet in height, 17 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty, and weigh almost 6 million pounds.

ICE SWIM | Feeling the power from the cold

Swedish photographer, Jonna Jinton shows us how to become one with nature, more specifically, with winter, by going ice dipping - complete with some nice wooly socks. The video has been viewed over 1M times...

The winter is here again, and this time I wanted to prepare myself for this 6 cold months to come. This winter I want to feel the cold as a source of power, and not the opposite.
I thought that taking a little swim in the ice cold water is the best way to start this winter, to really get into the very core of how cold feels like. Almost like a ritual. The ice swim become a symbol for not letting the cold take control of me.

And it's a way of testing myself. It's a strange feeling to do something when my whole body tells me to not do it.

This is something I will try to do regularly during this winter. Because taking a ice swim really has the most amazing effect on our body and mind. I have never, ever felt so full of live as the two times I have taken a swim in ice cold water. It's like giving your body a power start.

This Dish Could Kill You

It must be really good for these people who continue to risk their lives eating this dish...

When Egypt’s Ministry of Health issues its annual warning to stay away from a local deadly delicacy called feseekh, you would think that most would comply. Instead, thousands flock to their local feseekh eateries every day to enjoy the traditional dish. Feseekh, or fermented mullet fish, can cause poisoning or even death if not prepared properly. That is why Ibrahim Shaheen, a local expert and maker of feseekh, takes extra care to make sure his fish are fermented properly. Using a technique that has been passed down his family for over 100 years, Shaheen carefully prepares the fish and sells it to restaurants all over Egypt. He understands the risk involved in eating and serving feseekh but for him, and countless others, the risk is worth the reward.

Paralysed men walk again with spinal implant - BBC News

Scientists in Switzerland have developed a spinal implant that enables people who had previously been considered permanently paralysed to walk again temporarily.
When switched on, the device boosts signals from the brain through the injured part of the spine to the legs.
It has also surprised scientists by appearing to repair nerve damage in the spinal cord.
The technology is in its infancy, but the BBC met some patients who have been trying it out.
