Levitating Mouse

NASA used intense magnetic fields to levitate a mouse. I love it! Antigravity (not in the pseudoscience way but in the "against gravity" meaning) has always been fascinating to me.

Prisoner Grows Marijuana in Cell

A prisoner convinces jail guards that he's just raising tomato plants in his cell. They don't realize that they have a somewhat distinctive non-tomato appearance for five months!

And he was in jail for... wait for it... drug charges. Go figure.

I love it!

Someone needs to make an amusement park of "anti-gravity" areas and toys.

I saw a video of chinese scientists doing the same thing, though there was video with it. The mouse was freaking out a bit at first, trying to grab on to things, then after a while chilled a bit and groomed happily.

I agree with the article. When photographing levitating things, do it from the side.
