IO Jupiter’s fifth moon, Io, is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Io has more than 400 active volcanoes with average height of 6km on its surface. Plumes of sulfur spew upward as high as 300 kilometers. The surface of Io is splotched with lava lakes and floodplains of liquid rock. Io's atmosphere is made primarily of sulfur. Temperatures on Io vary from extremely hot to extremely cold. Areas which feature volcanic activity can reach temperatures of over 2000C, away from these areas however will see temperatures plunge to -143C. Io is subjected to tremendous tidal forces. which cause Io's surface to bulge up and down (or in and out) by as much as 100 m. As Jupiter rotates, it takes its magnetic field around with it, sweeping past Io and stripping off about 1 ton of Io's material every second. This material becomes ionized in the magnetic field and forms a doughnut-shaped cloud of intense radiation referred to as a plasma torus. Radiation on Io is 1000x stronger than is needed to kill a human being.

I know the inventor of the GIF said it was pronounced 'JIF', but personally, I'm for team Hard G. I think he was just wrong, I don't know why it would be a soft G. It stands for Graphics Interchange Format and you don't say Jraphics Interchange Format, right? Anyway, GIF's are the best thing on the internet. Period.

EOS.IO is software that introduces a blockchain architecture designed to enable vertical and horizontal scaling of decentralized applications (the “EOS.IO Software”). This is achieved through an operating system-like construct upon which applications can be built. The software provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication and the scheduling of applications across multiple CPU cores and/or clusters. The resulting technology is a blockchain architecture that has the potential to scale to millions of transactions per second, eliminates user fees and allows for quick and easy deployment of decentralized applications.

"A great t-shirt gift idea for any fan of science, physics, astoronoy anything to do with the stars. The Drake Equation, is used to estimate the number of communicating civilizations in the universe, or more simply put, the odds of finding intelligent life in the universe. N = the number of civilizations in our galaxy with which communication might be possible (i.e. which are on our current past light cone); and R* = the average rate of star formation in our galaxy fp = the fraction of those stars that have planets ne = the average number of planets that can potentially support life per star that has planets fl = the fraction of planets that could support life that actually develop life at some point fi = the fraction of planets with life that actually go on to develop intelligent life (civilizations) fc = the fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space L = the length of time for which such civilizations release detectable signals into space"
