NASA, NASA, how low did you sink? :-)

This is truly funny. Recently, they established a live high-definition link from the space station. Anybody on Earth can now see on the internet the live footage from space. But look what happened when two unidentified objects appeared in the footage. The feed was immediately cut off by someone in N...

Re: Happy Spring/Autumn Equinox

Sandy, we just had a partial sun eclipse in Europe yesterday. It was awesome. Only about 68% of the sun area was covered where I live, but it still felt quite strange. The sunlight had a blue hue into it. The folks in the UK got about 90% coverage. It must have been even greater spectacle for them. ...

There may not be any.

Japan has lost before the International Court of Justice. They were told their "research" was no research. So they had to interrupt their whaling and may not be returning to the southern ocean at all.
