Let's be honest -- geysers are really cool. You've got an eruption of water and vapor that can burst to heights of 185 feet. What's not to like about that? When building propellant tanks for the world's most powerful rocket, NASA engineers want to make sure Old Faithful stays in Yellowstone.
The boomerang is a flying tool, made of wood or carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, with a curved shape that is often used as a weapon or for sport. They have also been made of bones and come in many different shapes and sizes depending on their geographic or tribal origins and their intended function. The most commonly recognizable type is the returning boomerang which travels in an elliptical path and returns to its point of origin. The returning boomerang has lopsided wings in order to create...
