Graham Linehan, creator of the outstanding British sitcom The IT Crowd, has a new TV show in the works. It's a science fiction/comedy titled The Cloud, which pretty much sounds like The IT Crowd in space. There is literally nothing in the sentence we aren't excited abut.
This could be amazing. Graham Linehan, creator of The IT Crowd, is co-creating a sitcom called The Cloud, with Adam Buxton, who was one half of The Adam and Joe Show with Joe Cornish. It takes place on a space station that's archiving all of the junk on your phone and other devices.
The astronauts on board the International Space Station saw a strange and unexpected view out their windows yesterday. “Saw something launch into space today. Not sure what it was but the cloud it left behind was pretty amazing,” tweeted NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins.
Last year we introduced you to Berndnaut Smilde, a Dutch artist who has made a name for himself by suspending real clouds in the most unusual spaces. In this video, Smilde waxes metaphysical about the inspiration behind his work.
The next time you spot something resembling an alien craft looming overhead, check to make sure it's not hovering beside a mountain. If it is, there's a good chance you've spotted a lenticular cloud, like the one pictured above.
That's not photoshop; that's an actual cloud hovering inside an actual room. Artist Berndnaut Smilde merges art and science to create small man-made clouds that exist — albeit for just a moment — indoors.
The sky above this Singapore hotel seems perfectly normal...but then something weird starts happening in the clouds. They suddenly change shapes, brighten and dim, and seem to pulsate for no apparent reason. This strange phenomenon has baffled scientists...until now.
