It must be such a satisfying feeling to design one of these and have them work exactly as you’d envisaged.

for-all-mankind:

Of the hundreds of times I have seen the Saturn V rocket, at all the locations it is on display in the world, never has it ever been as beautiful or commanding as it was this time.

The five J-2 engines on the second stage attracted my eye the most. The countless wires, chambers, and fuel pumps of the engines contrasted with lack of aerodynamic protection gave the business end of the S-II a mechanical sense that I have never really appreciated before. Sure, the five F-1 engines on the S-IC or the single J-2 on the S-IVB are equally as complex and exposed, but for some reason, the cluster of them on the second stage is appealing.

A surprising lack of people in the building gave me great opportunities for pictures I normally avoid taking due to crowds, and I was able to see the rocket in a totally different perspective.

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”

The Geneva Drive, or Maltese Mechanism, converts continuous rotational motion into an intermittent ‘tick.’ This is usually responsible for the ticking of the minute and/or second hand in clocks.

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.
