SECOND LARGEST AQUARIUM IN THE WORLD IS RATHER STUNNING

Kyle Hill from Science-Based life says about this:

“This is the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. After the World’s Fair in Okinawa, Japan, this massive aquarium was opened in 2002 to keep the tourism to the city alive.

The main tank called the “Kuroshio Sea” holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel (an incredible 24 inches thick!). Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank.

Suffice it to say that any fish tank that can hold the largest fish on Earth is pretty amazing. Seeing such giants up close must be as close to a spiritual experience as a godless heathen like me could get.”

I don’t think we could handle the first biggest aquarium in the world….

Thanks to Kyle from Science-Based life.

SVENGALI RETURNS TO THE WEST END FOR 27 PERFORMANCES ONLY

TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW, CLICK HERE: Novello Theatre, London

“A baffling, bamboozling and beautifully bewitching display of devilry. When it comes to eye-popping illusions Brown is the only game in town”
****Evening Standard

Be prepared for a theatrical roller-coaster ride as the acknowledged master of psychological illusion returns to the West End with his 2012 Oliver-nominated show DERREN BROWN: SVENGALI. This is the last chance to see the sell-out live show that has mesmerized the nation, performing in over 150 venues

SVENGALI will reside at the Novello Theatre from July 12 – Aug 11 2012.

Derren, who professes that he loves writing and performing on stage more than anything else, says:

“”I enjoy the stage shows more than anything else. This one is fun, dark, funny, freaky. Live on stage is the best place for what I do: it’s unpredictable, and the audience knows there’s no possibility of judicious editing. Plus we’ve put in new material for this year and the show has grown and changed on the road more than any other.”

Svengali is written by Derren Brown and Iain Sharkey with Stephen Long and produced by Michael Vine, Andrew O’Connor & Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent Management.

TELLER TALKS ABOUT THE SCIENCE THAT MAKES THE MAGIC POSSIBLE

Posted in Blog Archive

Teller, the mute half of the wonderful magicial duo Penn & Teller talks about the science that makes the magic possible. On Smithsonianmag.com you can read an article by Teller’s hand on the deception he uses in his magic acts. Those who find their root in the neurological tricks that fool our brains that make a subtle exploitation of our evolutionary origins into an art-form. The magician’s skill, Teller says, is understanding and utilizing this for their devious plans to continually surprise you;

“But magic’s not easy to pick apart with machines, because it’s not really about the mechanics of your senses. Magic’s about understanding—and then manipulating—how viewers digest the sensory information.”

We can certainly recommend the article to anyone interested in magic and the hidden science behind it, but especially to aspiring magicians who would like to know more about what really makes this amazing craft tick and would like to learn from one of the best.

Once you’ve read the excellent article you can dispel another illusion, by listening to Teller himself talk about his article on the NPR podcast. And what a lovely voice he has, miracle indeed. Don’t forget that Derren has a book out where he makes similar… confessions of a conjurer.

I came to see the Infamous tour in Southampton (April 11). Derren is my biggest hero, and I found myself incredibly lucky enough to be up on stage with him. Derren was as genuine and charming as I'd always hoped (which proved a contrast to my nervous and shaky demeanour). He is a brilliant showman and an all-round pleasure to watch. The show was sensationally mind-blowing - I'll be sure that I never miss another. Thank you Derren, for everything that you do. Sorry I was so shaky! Grace

Derren Brown, For my daughter's birthday gift in November of 2013, I gave her a ticket to your show. For Christmas, I gave her a round trip ticket to London from Pensacola, Florida, our home. On my birthday, I flew from the Middle East, where I'm teaching English, to join her. On the 25th of March, you gave us your best. It was the highlight of our First English Spring Tour. No matter how far apart we are in the world or mindset, we both agree...we have no idea how you do it! And we like it that way.

I saw Derren at Leeds on 25th and I am still - 4 days on - utterly blown away by his incredible talent and incredible show! I have never ever had the pleasure of seeing him live before, but I will never miss an opportunity again. Someone as talented as Derren Brown is a MUST SEE. He's mesmerising, spellbinding, inspiring, jaw droppingly amazing. This experience is something I will take away with me forever and a day! Thank you SO much for bringing this show to Leeds! But goin forward, if travel roun te country to see you - you are THAT good :)
