Sometimes I forget that Julie Andrews is an actress and not the ruler of a small European principality.

I feel like this photo set sums up the entire series.  The men talk about doing shit; the women get shit done.

Maureen Clemmons used Egypt’s historical clues to form the theory that pyramids were built using kites. To help test it, a team from Caltech raised a 15-foot, 6,900 lb. obelisk using only a kite, pulley system, and support frame. It only took 25 seconds to lift it.  Source

Read the article, very cool

Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You are responsible for your happiness.

A huge comet almost hit Mars … and then missed. It passed just 87,000 miles from the martian surface. That might seem far away, but remember our moon is about 240,000 miles from Earth’s surface. 

As astronomer Phil Plait, who writes the Bad Astronomy blog for Slate, notes:

The NASA comet page says the coma (the big fuzzy cloud of gas surrounding the solid nucleus of the comet) is about 20,000 km across. At closest approach, that means that if you were standing on Mars, the comet would appear to be over 8° across! That means that if you have a big hand, you could just barely block it with your upraised fist.

Again — our Moon appears only about 0.5°. This was huge.

And human probes orbiting mars had a front row seat. They recorded the comet’s approach, and then quickly swung around behind Mars to avoid potentially harmful debris in the comet’s tail. The data from their close encounter will be trickling in over the next couple weeks.

My weekend was pretty fantastic, glad I got to share it with people I care about dearly!

At Joshua Liner Gallery, New Works from Tiffany Bozic.

For this work, Bozic remembers a trip to Mount Lassen, California, with her husband. Recalling the experience—even though several years had passed—Bozic finally sat down to create this painting, remembering her imagination of “deep sea organisms slowly drifting up into the sky from the black current of the water.” She also notes, “I suppose the image stuck with me because it could be a metaphor for a lot of my different emotions… some light and warm, some deep and cold.” The contrasting tones and shades lend themselves to this mood, with negative dark space and dark trees emerging from the solid white snow forms. The ethereal sea shapes preside over the scene.

In an attempt to relay her consciousness’ perspective, this body of work is a rich account of Tiffany Bozic’s incredible encounters with nature. Bozic describes the source of her inspiration as a “complex and inexplicable world.” However, with Qualia, Bozic’s world is within reach and beautifully discrete.
