    One of the true wonders of the world are snowflakes, tiny designs made of ice that are so individually unique, so detailed, and so spectacular it's hard to comprehend that they happen naturally and aren't pulled from the depths of our own imaginations.

    Photographer Alexey Kljatov has a special talent for capturing the brief life of these beautiful ice creations. He features many of his snowflake photos on Flickr. Kljatov says, "I capture snowflakes at open balcony of my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by LED flashlight from opposite side of glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background."

    Here is some of his impressive work:

    These two images, taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, capture comet 2I/Borisov blazing through our solar system on its way back into interstellar space. It's only the second interstellar object known to have passed through the solar system.

    The comet appears in front of a distant background spiral galaxy (top). The galaxy's bright central core is smeared because Hubble was tracking the comet. Comet Borisov was approximately 203 million miles from Earth in this image.

    I'm not sure if this has been listed on the thread, but Algodoo, a physics-based, simulation program has been an interest with the kids and adults in my family for years. My son has had it since he was in Junior High. When he got a laptop for college, he made sure to put Algodoo on it. He uses it to visualize physics concepts. And, the good news is it's now FREE and works with interactive whiteboards. It's available for Windows, Mac, and iPad.
