Just because a lunar landing anniversary needs a second post today.

45 years ago today, Apollo 11 landed on the first humans on the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface.


That’s pretty much how it happened.

Everyday Astronaut by Tim Dodd

Dodd on his project:

In November of 2013, I found myself the lone bidder of a Russian high altitude space suit on an auction website called RRauction. Since then, I’d been scheming how to best use the suit. I have been revisiting my childhood love for space and my obsession was growing stronger and stronger. It was only natural to use this suit to project the inner child in me, still dreaming about space. With that, I present to you: “A day in the life of Everyday Astronaut”

Alan John Herbert: “The Body”

Alan John Herbert‘s The Body has only one flaw, it is too brief. It is such a beautiful series–brilliant even. The two mediums, illustration and photography, partake in a wonderful waltz, gliding across your psyche without missing a beat.

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

Unforeseen disadvantage of working for a rocket company:
You’re family no longer appreciated the phrase “its not rocket science” when you say it.

history meme / three inventions / penicillin 
Penicillin was re-discovered by bacteriologist Alexander Fleming working at St. Mary’s Hospital in London in 1928. He observed that a plate culture of Staphylococcus had been contaminated by a blue-green mold and that colonies of bacteria adjacent to the mold were being dissolved. Curious, Alexander Fleming grew the mold in a pure culture and found that it produced a substance that killed a number of disease-causing bacteria. Naming the substance penicillin, Dr. Fleming in 1929 published the results of his investigations, noting that his discovery might have therapeutic value if it could be produced in quantity. [+more]
