Woah. That's a big fuel tank.
 
NASA's New Deep Space Rocket: Plugging Away Inside Massive SLS Fuel Tank | Welders Complete Final Plug Fusion Welds on SLS Liquid Hydrogen Tank | Aug. 18, 2016: Welders inside a large liquid hydrogen tank for NASA's Space Launch System at the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans are plugging holes left after the tank was assembled. Using frictional heating and forging pressure, friction stir welding produces high-strength bonds virtually free of defects. The process transforms metals from a solid state into a "plastic-like" state and uses a rotating pin tool to soften, stir and forge a bond between two metal sections to form a uniform welded joint. At the beginning and end of each weld, holes remain where the rotating pin tool enters and exits the metal. Six 22-foot-tall barrels and two domed caps were joined together to create the qualification test article, which measures an astounding 27.5 feet in diameter and over 130 feet long. Qualification test articles, like the one shown here, closely replicate flight hardware and are built using identical processing procedures. The liquid hydrogen tank, a liquid oxygen tank, four RS-25 engines and other elements form SLS's core stage, which also serves as the rocket's structural backbone. SLS—the most powerful rocket in the world—along with NASA's Orion spacecraft will send astronauts deeper into space than ever before, including on the agency's journey to Mars.

Another fine product from Bimbo Bakeries. You can guess what happened to me when I opened up the overhead storage compartment where the bread was stored.

My favorite way to begin sales pitch:

"I know most of you are old or don't get the internet, but you should pay attention to it and the various ways of delivering digital content because it's where most of the eyeballs for your ads are located.

Print is overpriced and a waste of your hard-earned resources because your ads only get one shot at being seen. Digital ads stay with the articles for as long as the articles remain online and are still discoverable long after you've paid for them instead of just during the week or so when a news paper is available."

I say this whether or not the ad buyers are over 50 or under 30.

It's a brave new world. The digital revolution is just getting underway. The way news is delivered ten years from now will look nothing like it does today.
As automation continues to claim jobs in new fields, meteorology may be next.

This should be the basic internet speed in my county. Most have access to less than 3 down and 0.5 up.

This is intriguing 
Outernet is a new satellite service that aims to be a free “library in the sky”. They continuously broadcast services such as news, weather, videos and other files from satellites. Their aim is to provide up to date information to users in locations with little to no internet (rural, third world and sea), or in countries …

This is fascinating
If you are in the San Francisco, you have the opportunity to pay a visit to the Zeiss f/0.7 lens that Kubrick used to shoot Barry Lyndon.

There's a lot of backseat driving going on w my all clear for the local fireworks forecast.

Just because you have an app on your phone, does not mean you can forecast the weather.

I'm just saying...
