Okay, sorry for mooning everyone this fine early morning. haha, nah, but here’s Mars and the moon, phone camera again. NASA would be so proud, rofl.
I took a quick picture of the eclipse with bad quality phone camera. Haha. Buuut, this is incredible. :)
I have the best globe ever. And that other light is from the speaker, but it makes a good Venus. Haha
Want to build your own space agency? Well, now you can, because NASA’s about to give away a whole bunch of their code for free! You’ll have access to the coding behind robots, cryogenic systems and climate simulators. There’s even code for running rocket guidance systems.

Photos from a real-life storm chaser:
TED Fellow Camille Seaman captures the spectacular and ominous beauty of storm clouds. Supercell clouds, like the ones above, can grow up to 50 miles wide and reach up to 65 thousand feet into the atmosphere. In her TEDTalk, Camille describes her experience chasing storms: “There’s a warm, moist wind blowing at your back and the smell of the earth, the wheat, the grass, the charged particles. And then there are the colors in the clouds of hail forming, the greens and the turquoise blues.”
