Fly Past Neptune’s Moon Triton in this Video Made from Real Pictures Shot by Voyager 2 in 1989

25 years and two days ago today, NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft passed right over Neptune’s largest moon Triton. It’s the only spacecraft to have ever done this, and as behoved the situation, it had its camera snapping photos just as quickly as possible so it could record this momentous occasion.

The Burning Man Time-Lapse to End All Burning Man Time-Lapses

Seven minutes. It’s not often we run across a time-lapse that lasts seven minutes, and even less often we actually watch the whole thing, slack-jawed, from start to finish. That, however, is what happened with photographer Roy Two Thousand‘s most recent creation: Lake of Dreams. Read more…

Photographer Gets Access to Restricted Areas, Shoots Airplane Time-Lapse of Epic Proportions

When we finally build a warp drive (or, you know, whenever the aliens see fit to give us one), this time-lapse is what we imagine a warp-speed airport would look like in real-time. Planes blasting away to our outposts in Andromeda, leaving long streaks of light in their wake.
