The Winter Solstice Is Next Week. Here Are 4 Things You Probably Didn't Know
This year, the winter solstice will take place on Thursday, Dec. 21 for the Northern Hemisphere. The Southern Hemisphere will experience its summer solstice at the same time.The winter solstice marks the start of winter — the day with the smallest amount of daylight, sometimes referred to as the “darkest day of the year” or the “shortest day of the year.” The National Weather Service explains the winter solstice also marks when the earth’s axis tilted furthest away from the sun.But just because there isn’t a lot of sunlight doesn’t mean it is always cold on the winter solstice. In fact, the NWS explains, the coldest and warmest temperatures typically occur weeks after the winter and summer solstices, respectively.While the Earth is always tilted at 23.5 degrees, during the winter, that tilt is facing away from the sun. The winter solstice occurs in the Southern Hemisphere when the Northern Hemisphere experiences its summer solstice, which falls on June 21, 2018.

Introducing: The World's First Fully Functional 3D Printed Watch: The Christoph Laimer Tourbillon
This is an actual watch, with a tourbillon, that is almost entirely 3D printed. Think about it: the tourbillon – a 200+ year old invention designed by one of the greatest watchmakers to ever live, which for most of its history has been practically synonymous with hand-craftsmanship and high end watchmaking, has been produced in a working watch with a 3D printer.
