Mission 26 The Big Endeavour on Vimeo – LINK

“The endeavor started on Thursday night and went on until Sunday night, with very little sleep to no sleep. The only thing that kept us going was pure love of the art and adrenaline. One thing that stood out the most for me, while I was shooting, was the people of Los Angeles. It was so powerful to see the excitement on peoples faces and the pride of their home town. No matter how many times I would see the Shuttle it would never get old.”

NASA’s real news: bacterium on Earth that lives off arsenic! | Bad Astronomy | Discover Magazine

NASA scientists announced today an incredible find: a form of microbe that apparently evolved the ability to use otherwise toxic arsenic in their biochemistry!

First off, just to be straight and to dispel the rumors: this is not aliens on Titan, or Mars, or anywhere else. This bizarre life form was found right here on good ol’ Earth. And don’t be disappointed: this is still pretty cool news.

This is the point where I should inject some sort of personal insight, or intelligent observation… but all I can really think of, right now, is: HOW FREAKIN’ COOL IS THIS?!?!!?!
