Halo Diehards own series of real life, mind blowing science and space news that prove that “The future is NOW”.

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Cassini & Saturn

Did you know there has been a robotic spaceship orbiting Saturn since 2004? Cassini has been tasked with studying Saturn, otherwise known as “The Jewel of the Solar System”, and after viewing images taken by Cassini, there’s not doubt that the planet lives up to it’s name. We received new images from Cassini last Thursday. See Saturn in all it’s…

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! “Homemade Bionics”

Remember when we covered the 3D printers? Halo Diehards News Team member, EdieKaye, posted a newslink this morning that shows the extent these nifty gadgets can be used to change people’s lives. Apparently, it would cost tens of thousands of dollars to get a prosthesis that would allow a boy without fingers to have a functional hand, but today a…

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Real-life Crawler

It’s an “It’s not Halo” double feature! “Wildcat” is a robot developed by Boston Dynamics that can gallop, “bound”, and turn and drop on a dime. Seeming a cross between their LS3 and Cheetah models, it is uncannily alive-like, and seems to have a personality of it’s own. Watch it in action in the following video and see if it…

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Supervolcanoes on Mars

Scientists are heated over whether or not anomalies on Mars’ surface are impact craters or supervolcanoes. Landmarks like Eden Patera, seen above in a heatmap image, contain features structurally similar to supervolcanoes that have been studied intimately on Earth and lack those common in impact craters. Watch the following video by Nature, learn about Mars’ dramatic past and decide for…

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Screams from Interstellar Space

Voyager 1 left our solar system August of 2012, after 35 years of spaceflight. The first object in the history of mankind to be launched it’s distance, Voyager 1 has brought us the first ever in history recording of sounds from interstellar space. Although the recording is short, there is something at the core of my being that recognizes the…

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Peruvian Amazon Mystery

“What the heck is it, Eggar?!?” What you are looking at is only about two centimeters wide, and was created by a simple, unknown living organism. Study the complexity and uniform-ness of it’s creation. Scientists at this point are baffled by the find, and uncertain if it is an egg sac, the start to some sort of cocoon, or even…

It’s not Halo, but damn it’s cool! Sun’s flips poles soon

Did you know that about every eleven years the sun’s magnetic poles switch places? The sun actually has a cycle of waxing and waning activity, and on it’s way to solar maximum, or the part of it’s cycle where sunspot activity is at it’s peak, the north and south magnetic poles flip. In 2001 it was predicted that the next…
