We hope you're not afraid of heights, because this even made our palms sweat. What you see below is a mountain in China called Mt. Hua Shan. At its base, you'll find a gigantic set of stone stairs, called "the Heavenly Stairs." These stairs go so high up the mountainside, it's hard to see where they end. If that wasn't enough, the precarious stairs lead to the world's most dangerous trail, the Hua Shan plank path. The plank trail leads high up the Hua Shan mountain just outside the city Xi'an. No one will force you to wear safety gear, although it's strongly encouraged. The trail itself is dangerous and stunning, but what is at the top will really shock you.

Artist Joel Cooper uses an origami technique called tessellation to make ornate masks that are covered in intricate textures and patterns. Each mask is folded from a single sheet of paper (heís posted a how-to on his blog). The tessellation technique can be used to create the illusion of a weaved pattern, as well as ridged corrugations and other repeating geometric patterns. Cooperís masks are available for purchase.

Death Valley hosts one of the most enigmatic geological phenomenon that has puzzled scientists for decades. In Racetrack Playa are the "sailing stones", which seem to glide across the flat dry desert on their own, without human or animal intervention.

The Earth performed the ultimate magic trick last week, making an island appear out of nowhere. The new island is a remarkable side effect of the deadly Sept. 24 earthquake in Pakistan that killed more than 500 people.

A haunting new video of the 2011 tsunami in Japan has emerged, showing how quickly the situation changed from a curious rush of water into a horrific torrent of nature.

Beginning at about the 3-minute mark, the video shows a subtle rise in the water along a canal which is just calm enough to keep onlookers from being scared away. But as the minutes progress, the water level rises and the stream becomes more powerful, forcing spectators as well as the cameraman to scurry to higher ground.

At about 7 minutes into the video, itís clear that the water is flowing over the canal walls and barreling into the surrounding town. The devastation that follows is incredible in its scope as it is terrifying.

The feeling that it always rains at weekends may be more than just a myth about the weather. New research shows weekends are wetter. The cause, scientists suspect, is the build up of pollution during the week, resulting in rain at the weekend.

It's been 27 years, but it seems like yesterday. On January 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded just a few seconds after launch. One of the astronauts aboard was physicist Ronald McNair. In this video from StoryCorps, McNair's brother talks about his childhood in Lake City, South Carolina.

Many of the items we use every day, like zippers and escalators, were once brand names. Even heroin, which no one should use any day, was a brand name.
Here are some trademarked names that are often used as generic terms today
