flytofight: Convair B-36 Peacemaker parasite aircraft projects At a time when it looked as if England would fall like the rest of Europe to Nazi Germany, the USAAF began developing the B-36 with the idea of transatlantic bombing missions in mind.  In order to protect the bombers on such long range missions the parasite aircraft concept was used.  The idea was that a handful of bombers within each bombing group would deploy small, air launched fighter aircraft from the bomb bays for the purpose...

bobbycaputo: Happy 15th Birthday Chandra X-Ray Observatory Fifteen years ago, NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory was launched into space aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia.

These explosions sweep up any surrounding material, creating bubble remnants that expand into interstellar space. At the heart of bubbles like these are small, dense neutron stars or black holes, the remains of what once shone brightly as a star. Since supernova-carved bubbles shine for only a few tens of thousands of years b...

Fifteen hundred light years away towards the constellation of Orion lies a nebula which, from its glow and dark dust lanes, appears, on the left, like a billowing fire. But fire, the rapid acquisition of oxygen, is not what makes this Flame glow. Rather the bright star Alnitak, the easternmost star in the Belt of Orion visible just to the right of the nebula, shines energetic light into the Flame that knocks electrons awa...

NeSpoon calls her artistic approach the “jewellery of the public space”: Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better. NeSpoon often uses the usual spray paint and stencils of enlarged lace patterns to produce her works on the street vi...
