Media Dump
A thread to share and discuss images and sounds you've found on the web, new or old.

To start, an audio recording from Cassini as it passed by everyones favorite broadly ringed gas giant, scaled into to the level of human hearing.
This is what Saturn sounds like.

(Yes, there is sound in space. No, shut up, there totally is)

The blue is pornography.

Holy hell, can someone explain that 'map'?

January 2006 legend:

Blue: net, ca, us (Canada, US and network providers)
Green: com, org (commercial and non-profit)
Red: mil, gov, edu (Government and Education)
Yellow: jp, cn, tw, au (Southeast Asia)
Purple: de, uk, it, pl, fr (Europe)
Cyan: br, kr, nl (brazil, south korea and the nederlands [i have no idea])
White: (no idea)

Seems to be a 'graph' as well as a 'map'.
It's intent is to show diversity and vulnerability of a network, of value for military interests and continuance of government. I recall something about the US government reversing a decision to relinquish control of master domain servers (which might have something to do with this research), but the information seems to have disappeared from the web.

Disappeared article, reactionary comments remain:
