Pavement makes cities hotter, some more than others. NASA satellites measure the differences: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=86440

Yet, according to climate scientists who called me names in the 90s, this does not contribute to accelerated warming.  Sheesh.

This rocketship just left Earth. The Space Station crew will soon grab it with the huge robot Canadarm2.

Amazing world!

Jud Haynes, Newfoundlander, designed my album cover. His blog about the process is delightful: http://judhaynes.ca/processchris-hadfieldalbum-cover-design/

Would it be correct to presume that your fellow Canadian used the correct Maple Leaf (down there on the bottom)? It is definitely a nice touch to a striking piece of work--which will of course frame or enclose another striking piece of work.

Stand up and look around on Mars - this is what you'd see. A wall of rock from Curiosity rover:

+Yang Chen  It is a section of what looks like sedimentary rock showing significant water activity over an extended period of time. 

At least three different wet periods of time can be inferred here.  The lowest section is mudstone.  Mudstone is deposited in still or slow moving water, like a lake or river delta. 

But that mud dried up, solidified into stone and then cracked.  At a later time the soil again became moist, but only slightly.  A whitish mineral was drawn into the cracks leaving the white veins.

At an even later date sand was deposited on top of the mudstone and solidified into stone itself.  Sand deposition indicates a moderate water flow, like a beach or river.

All in all that picture tells an interesting story about water on Mars.

That line behind this moon Dione is one of Saturn’s rings. Incredible photograph, just 3 days old.

+Daniel Ercolani Indeed, with the naked eye (on Earth) the angular size of Saturn is so small that it cannot be distinguished from a dot.

But this image was taken by the Cassini orbiter - which is considerably closer to Saturn (as the name suggests: orbiter)

I contacted Memofix to help repair a hard drive that had stopped working at the recommendation of friends. After having worked with them, I would be happy to recommend the same for my own. I spoke with Bob Giannoulis, who offered in-depth knowledge, a pleasant attitude, and a sincerity that can’t be faked. He was able to quickly assess and explain the problem simply, providing a step by step process to solve the issue. The payment process was smooth and my new HD works great. The level of customer service was beyond expectation, and they’ll certainly get my business for any future HD needs.
