    Star Trek themed Audi Ad staring the old Spock Leonard Nimoy vs the new Spock Zachary Quinto. Spoiler alert, Old age and treachery always over comes youth and enthusiasm. :D

    By far the coolest, yet most insane video of Monday, hands down.

    Tornado intercept captured on video by Brandon Ivey of a large wedge tornado by the TIV2 in Kansas on Monday evening. The instruments stopped recording and broke off around 150-175mph. The turret on top, which is used by Sean Casey to create IMAX films. They were all okay, but truck did take some damage. I do believe that this is the first actual footage of the core of a tornado, seen in the brown funnel.

    Hi Brandon:

    They were in the TIV 2, a 2008 Dodge 2500 4x4 with a reinforced frame and 1/8" steel plate as the body. It weighs over 17,000 lbs and has a 92 gallon fuel tank. It has sheets that lower to the ground and hydraulic claw spikes that literally dig in to the ground. It has a turret used to house the IMAX camera for filming.

    Here is a link to Ryan McGinnis' whole gallery of the TIV 2 and the whole Vortex 2 project a few years back. Sean Casey and the TIV2 are now independent chasers, as far as I know.

    Hi Brandon:

    Thanks for the detail!

    I wish they were towing it and only deploy when a twister has been spotted close but I understand the need for the body armor. I would still be afraid of driving one into an EF5!

    In contrast, this is why you don't play in the bear's cage like several chasers were May 31 west of OKC...

    Hi Brandon:

    Are these chasers performing any science or only catching the thrill for TV?
