In lieu of content

December 14, 2010

It’s been a while since I last posted anything here, although this blog is by no means dead. I have several reviews lined up and hope to have at least one up before the end of the year. Meanwhile, here are a couple of cool space-related, er, things.

First, a gallery of sketches by Paul Calle of the crew of Apollo 11 drawn during their suiting up on July 16 1969 for their historic mission. See here.

Second, here’s a cool video of what the International Space Station would look like if it were travelling at its current speed, but only 300 m above the ground.
