We already know math, as much as number haters want to hate, can make for some memorable movie story lines. Looking beyond cinematic glory, have you ever noticed the occurrences of geometry and algebra in the works of art that make up museums and count among the wonders of the world? From the pyramids of Egypt to the bracelet adorning your wrist today, prepare to have your mind blown by the way ancient math formulas are mirrored in artworks.

NASA has discovered yet another planet in our solar system that contains water. Saturns brightest moon, Enceladus, has been found to contain stress fractures on its icy surface that expand and contract as it circles Saturn. Such a flexible surface can only mean one thing — a planet covered in water. What's more, the water below the frozen surface could be hot, and with hot water comes biological growth.
Not surprisingly, Enceladus isn't the only planet that NASA has its eyes on for extraterrestrial life in and out of our solar system. Check out three more planets that could contain life, or have all the fixings for alien life in the future.

Passing secret notes on paper is a thing of the past with Notey, the website that lets you type in a secret message and password-protect it so that only your intended recipient(s) can open it. An interesting alternative to texting and email (and way more fun for secret agents), your message is stored for up to 30 days before it will self-destruct (or Notey purges it from its system). Take note though — you can't change the text once you save, so you'd better get it right the first time.
