How would one rig up a system to make balloons fall from the roof like in the movies for proms and stuff like that? It would be awesome to set up for a random day at home, or my sisters 21st birthday or something, freak them out

Watch out for falling satellitesWith no one at the wheel, should we be worried about the large US spy satellite now headed for a crash landing?US spy satellite 193 is predicted to de-orbit less than gracefully in Feburary or early March. The chances of it actually hitting a populated area are exceedingly small, but perhaps you can catch a few micrograms of it using Kiteman's How to catch a star Instructable.What is happening?An out-of-control US spy satellite will crash to Earth in the coming months, government officials say. The satellite is large enough that remnants are likely to survive atmospheric re-entry and strike the Earth, sometime in late February or early March, says Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council.Is that normal?"This is relatively routine in that satellites de-orbit all the time," says Johndroe. Pieces of uncontrolled debris heavier than two tonnes -- mostly discarded rocket stages -- crash to Earth as often as once every three weeks, says Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer and launch observer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts.Many discarded pieces retain some power, so that controllers on Earth can guide them to a point far from human habitation, usually using a final dive into an ocean. In 2001, Russian space officials broke up the old Mir space station in this way over the South Pacific. That's not the case for this US one, however."Obviously, we want to take a look at the potential for it to land in a populated area," says Johndroe.What are the chances of it crashing through my roof?Exceedingly slim, says McDowell. Remember that some 70% of the Earth is water, and most lands are void of people. "There is no reason for people to get alarmed about it," he says.According to the NASA Orbital Debris Program Office, there have been no confirmed instances of serious property damage or injury caused by crashing debris in 40 years.

If a tree falls in a forrest and no one hears it fall does it make a sound?
Question by i3dpple 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
From my research I've noticed that the only way people harvest energy from snow is through hydroelectric dams. Are there any other viable options? Some ideas I've thought of: -Spinners facing the sky that spin when weight falls on them -artificial tree branches that hold a certain amount of snow and then get energy from the snap back. Could this apply to falling leaves?
Question by Houdinipeter 7 years ago | last reply 7 years ago
How long does a pendulum need to be for its time period to be equal to the time it takes for a falling body to drop from a distance equal to the pendulum's length? A general equation as well as a specific solution for Earth surface gravity would be appreciated. With this, I would be able to establish standard time and distance units even if trapped on an island without any instruments other than what I can make from available materials. I'm sure I'm the only one tired that happening so often. Of course, I'd still need a way to establish the gravitatoinal constant if stranded on another planet...
Question by MDude 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
Okay, LOTS of supposing here. So lets suppose someone dug a hole through the center of the earth, and managed to cover up the sides of the hole with a magma resistant cover of some sort. You start out by getting one of the spacesuits from nasa and decide to jump in the hole. Would you survive? I know that a human in the open sky diving position will go about 200 km/h, and I believe a space suit can survive up to 250 degrees fahrenheit. Please tell me how you came to that conclusion because it's been killing me how to figure it out. And also please include any formulas that are used, they're good to know!

With all the terrorism stuff going on, I've always wandered what would be next.Ever since 9/11, I always asked myself were they would strike next, because they certainly did not intend to stop there.My guesses have been that they would probably strike at either:1) Elections - Either at the thing were they welcome the new president (sorry don't know much bout U.S. polimatics)2) Beijing Olympics - Its an important event3) Internet:I came to realize that one of the worst things that they could do was attack the internet. I figured that one of these methods could be used:Multiple malware methods. They could attack individual computers with wormsSomehow attacking diffrent countries methods of connection, being either telephone companies or whatever other methods they use (like those China underwater tube things)* But my best guess would be that they would strike important service providing companies. They would destroy the companies methods (satellites, cable mainframe stuff etc...)I would like this forum to have the porpose of disscussing terrorism issues and future issues like oil and so on. But mainly, what would happen if somehow, they attacked the internet?Sure hope none of them read this, cuz if they didn't have this idea, now they would....P.S. sorry, Im nt good with techie, so some of my points may not me accurate or clear. Please correct me if needed

I have a koi pond and I want to fix my waterfall with 4 or 5 weirs but my budget is tight and I can't afford to buy them. My pond sit at the base of a hill and I have a very strong pump to move the water so that isn't an issue. I just want to add more drama to the waterfall and the only way that I can think of doing it is by installing weirs. Any suggestions?

Whether manual or motorised, I am gobsmacked that a gearing system has been invented that prevents falling that is not a worm drive. Its been impossible to find ANY information about the gearing system that explains this miracle on google. If its not a worm gear, why doesn't the window fall back down when you let go of the crank handle or cut power to an electric window?

Question by jake long 5 years ago | last reply 5 years ago
I want to be able to set up a wireless microphone that will be able to withstand the elements in a northern Maine climate (wind, snow, freezing rain etc) that will capture the sound of a waterfall close to our cottage and transmit the sound with fairly good fidelity to a bedside receiver. Something that won't eat batteries, or maybe even solar powered (if simple enough) I'm no electronics whiz (clearly) but surely this is do-able? The power lines come in from the other side of the cottage, so are more than 100' away. Nearest neighbours are more than a half-mile so the only possible interference I could see would be from our own cordless telephones. Any takers?

This looks relatively easy to make;A stream of water is split into two streams and falls through two bottomless cans into two buckets. The falling water creates opposite electrical charges in the buckets, and high voltage arcs jump between them periodically.

Http://www.discountfountains.com/product.php?productid=84&cat;=6&page;=1 is an example of such a waterfall. I was thinking that making one with tubing running accross the surface of the water flow so that the falling water cool the tubes, and the water in these tubes would be used to cool the PC. It would be a aesthetic way to make a radiator that is fanless, functional and pleasing to the eye.

Sometimes I fall asleep when I'm watching TV and don't realize it, because I dream the rest of the story. Then of course when I wake up I'm thoroughly confused: why are the bad guys still alive? They had transformed into evil giant ants then I saved the day by feeding them peanut butter laced with boric acid! When I finally realize I'm not the hero in the story, I have to either go to bed and abandon all hope of finding out what really happened, or watch the story backwards, sped up and silent till I see a scene I recognize. No fun! These socks will protect the integrity of your show's story line: build them by following this tutorial, wear them while watching TV and they will pause the show when you fall asleep. Of course they won't keep you from dreaming up an alternate ending, but at least when you wake up you can start where you dosed off and find out who the murderer really is. This is a Netflix tutorial, and it's supposed to pause Netflix shows... but I'm sure it can be adapted to turn off Amazon Prime or other streaming services...

I found a thread that asked this question previously on instructables but the author wanted to harness the kinetic energy of falling snow, and many of the criticisms involved the unpredictability of when snow will fall.I am specifically curious if it is possible to create a machine to remove snow that uses the energy of the snow itself. Ideally, it would melt the snow and use the water or steam to power itself.The things Canadian winters do to the mind...
