Optical Camouflage using Retro-reflective Projection Technology (RPT) developed in 1998 at the University of Tokyo.


Type 1a supernovae occur in binary star systems where a dense white dwarf star accretes matter from its companion star. As the dwarf star gains mass, it approaches the limit where electron degeneracy pressure can no longer oppose the gravitational force of its mass. Carbon fusion in the white dwarf ignites a flame front, creating isolated bubbles of burning fluid inside the star. As these bubbles burn, they rise due to buoyancy and are sheared and deformed by the neighboring matter. The animation above is a visualization of temperature from a simulation of one of these burning buoyant bubbles. After the initial ignition, instabilities form rapidly on the expanding flame front and it quickly becomes turbulent. (Image credit: A. Aspden and J.

I know someone said it before, but keep in mind that Aljazeera is international, it’s based in Qatar. They tear gassed an international news crew and here they are most likely destroying their footage.
