This can only mean one thing. They moved the spacecraft to another facility!

Sweet travel sketches!
 
People that can do illustrations and other creative endeavors while traveling have my huge respect. Myself, I tend to soak it all in while roaming then deal with output at a later time.

Great demonstration of how small UAVs are used to observe Desert Kit Fox populations in California. Excellent research here all around, they have an IndieGoGo campaign up for funding on next steps: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-desert-kit-fox-project

Don't be fooled, they're cuddly. They're gorgeously grotesque. They're my favorite.
 
Answer: maybe not how you've heard.

The monsoon storm that rolled over last night provided an excellent sunset.

Is this A) 1.21 gigawatts!, B) a rift in time and space, C) a wicked messy storm slamming Las Vegas right now? I'm going with all three.

This dude's going on a little adventure.
 
I quit my job to walk across the world doing live Google+ hangouts in every village and city from Beijing, China, to London, England.

In 24 days from now, I will be boarding a plane to Hong Kong and catching the train to Beijing. After a good nights sleep and plenty of coffee, I will walk the 15,000km back to London over the duration of 3 years.

Throughout my journey I will be interviewing a whole range of people, alongside covering the cross cultural differentiation between technology, social media and the web.

Stay tuned for more information. Add me to Google+ to follow my progress.

Sometimes you just can't go any further.
 
Interesting look at some places around the world the Google Street View vehicles have to turn around. Some spots in the American Southwest, though, aren't as clear cut why they stop where they do. Intimidated by the back forty, Google!?
