Undersea eruptions near Tonga - The Big Picture - Boston.com
Scientists sailed out to have a closer look at the eruptions of an undersea volcano off the coast of Tonga in the South Pacific Ocean today.
Great pics of an underwater volcano erupting.Stunning pictures of 'hole in the clouds' as astronauts witness volcano eruption from the International Space Station | Mail Online
Photos of a volcanic eruption, and also of a "dark molecular cloud" in outer-space.
Awesome photos of an eruption in progress from the ISS. Also includes a bit about a "blank spot" in the night sky where a dense cloud about 500 light years away blocks light from reaching us.

Fascinating article that traces election results in counties in the South all the way back to geological events millions of years ago. In short, coastlines determined soil types which determined demographics which determined voting patterns.
This is so awesome.

"Modeling the absence of centrifugal force"
What would happen to our oceans if the Earth stopped spinning ? http://www.esri.com/news/arcuser/0610/nospin.html
What would happen if the Earth stopped spinning?
The following is not a futuristic scenario. It is not science fiction. It is a demonstration of the capabilities of GIS to model the results of an extremely unlikely, yet intellectually fascinating query: What would happen if the earth stopped spinning? ArcGIS was used to perform complex raster analysis and volumetric computations and generate maps that visualize these results. the world as we know it earth's ellipsoid
If the earth's gravity alone was responsible for creating a new geography, the huge bulge of oceanic water—which is now about 8 km high at the equator—would migrate to where a stationary earth's gravity would be the strongest. This bulge is attributed to the centrifugal effect of earth's spinning with a linear speed of 1,667 km/hour at the equator. The existing equatorial water bulge also inflates the ellipsoidal shape of the globe itself.
