I like @qatarairways inflight product on #Boeing 787s, but I would never want to sit in their economy class seats because of the narrow seat width. It could have been 17.2" or less. Not good for #paxex. Anything more than 2h on narrow seat is a painful experience. #vscocam #vscocamsg #sgairshow #avgeek #flashbackfriday (at Changi Exhibition Centre)

Happy leap day! 2016 is a leap year, meaning it has an extra day on February 29. This is not new: Julius Caesar himself, advised by an astronomer, created a calendar system in 46 B.C. that contained one leap day every four years. The reason is that it takes 365.24219 days for the Earth to circle the sun. This calendar system was fine-tuned in 1582 when Pope Gregory XIII added that leap days should not occur in years ending in “00” except if divisible by 400. Photo: NASA

LDN 988: dark nebula in Cygnus Obscuring the rich starfields of northern Cygnus, dark nebula LDN 988 lies near the center of this cosmic skyscape. Composed with telescope and camera, the scene is some 2 degrees across. That corresponds to 70 light-years at the estimated 2,000 light-year distance of LDN 988. Stars are forming within LDN 988, part of a larger complex of dusty molecular clouds along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy sometimes called the Northern Coalsack. In fact, nebulosities ass...
