Today I learned that there are 8 churches on Antactica.

This is one of them.

Trinity Church

Holy Trinity Church is a small Russian Orthodox church on King George Island near Bellingshausen Station, a Russian research station in Antarctica. It is one of the eight churches on Antarctica. It is the southernmost Eastern Orthodox church in the world.

The church is a 15m-high wooden structure built in traditional Russian style. It can accommodate up to 30 worshippers.

The church is manned year-round by one or two Orthodox priests

Mythbusters doing their thing again.

I saw that episode. Was epic. But this is a test done by GE on the GE90 engine during its trials before it is allowed to be put on the Boeing 777 test aircraft for certification.

Raudha Athif.



Unfortunately she passed away. Police calling it suicide but her family claiming she was murdered by extremists for not wearing Islamic clothing.

The Osborne 1

first commercially successful portable microcomputer, released on April 3, 1981, by Osborne Computer Corporation. It weighed 10.7 kg (24.5 lb), cost $1,795 US, and ran the CP/M 2.2 operating system. Powered directly from a mains socket as it had no on-board battery, it was still classed as a portable device since it could be packed away and transported by hand to another location.
