Field of Giant Corn Ears

This Field of Giant Corn Ears is located in Dublin, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. It's not a memorial to all the corn Ohio has eaten, rather, it's honoring Sam Frantz, an inventor of a corn hybrid that helped grow a hardier, tastier corn. The 109 cobs of concrete are tall and imposing.  #ingress #ingressPortal

The world's first nuclear reaction

"Site A is where the first nuclear reactor CP-1 was rebuilt as CP-2. Another reactor, CP-3 was built next to it and is the first heavy water modulated reactor—the earliest version of todays modern nuclear reactors. Plot M is in the same area and was used for burning low level radioactive waste—probably stuff like test animal remains and protective bunny suits.  #Ingress #IngressPortals

The climbability of Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein memorial by Robert Berks at the National Academy of Sciences in DC. Instead of a stodgy statue like so many other famous figures, I kinda like the fact that you can cuddle up on Einstein's lap and have him read from one of the papers in his hand on the photoelectric effect, the theory of general relativity, and the equivalence of energy and matter.

Chicago Fountain of waste

Chicago Fountain of waste An East Village artwork lifts a leg in a humorous salute to dogs  Shit Fountain was installed in July in front of a residence at 1001 North Wolcott Avenue at Augusta. Atop a three-foot-high column of concrete and sandstone sits a coiled mound of bronze immediately recognizable as a pile of dog crap.
