Once again we are reminded that space travel is hard. Best wishes to +SpaceX for figuring out what happened, fixing it, and getting back to space.
The SpaceX launch director and Air Force Eastern Range confirm that Falcon 9 and Dragon are ready for launch and the range is clear for liftoff at 10:21 a.m. EDT. Propellant tanks are pressurized to flight levels. This entry was posted in Cargo Resupply (CRS) on June 28, 2015 by Steven Siceloff.

Love this book review that was submitted to our Summer Reading website.

"...It's really old, made in 2007, so I think that's why the phones are not Samsung or Apple. Not even Blackberries! That's weird."
I think the author did a great job writing and drawing the book. It focused mostly on middle school dilemmas and the nice (and fiendish) teachers. It's really old, made in 2007, so I think that's why the phones are not Samsung or Apple. Not even Blackberries! That's weird.

It didn't take much convincing for me to change lunch plans and head to Dashi for their opening day. Very, very good. #Durham

Yes, that's a really bad photo of a +Google Fiber​ cupcake at the #Durham Google Fiber launch reception. Can't wait for the awesomeness that is to come.

The iconic countdown clock at +NASA's Kennedy Space Center Press Site is being replaced. (It will be relocated to KSC Visitor Center.)

Here's my obligatory photo in front of the clock prior to STS-132.

Great quote...especially true in U.S.:

"One despairing tour operator calls it an 'epidemic of ignorance'."

Great graphic too.

Overall, above average Asian food. Pad Thai is some of the best in the area. Sushi is good and service is always great. Some other dishes can be hit-or-miss, but generally consistent.

Great atmosphere and the Ramen was good. However, prices need to come down for lunch. $18 for lunch (with no drink) is a bit too pricy.

Great local pizza. No frills, but very good pies.

I don't know how it took me a year and half to get to The Original Q Shack. I went with a group for lunch and had the regular plate of ribs with sides of mac & cheese and green beans. The ribs were so good, they didn't even need sauce. Even during a crowded lunchtime, the wait was reasonable and the staff efficient and pleasant. Will definitely be heading back soon.

Pretty good food in a mice atmosphere. Sometimes out of milkshakes which is annoying.

Great neighborhood Italian restaurant. Food is always extremely flavorful, and the service is great. Everyone should have a place like this around the corner from their house.

I'm writing this review as Pizzeria Toro is closed for the second time in a year due to a fire. (What's going on there?) But when they are open and if you're looking for a gourmet pizza, you can't do any better that Pizzeria Toro. We've tried many of their pies and my favorite is the soft egg white pizza. It may be the best pizza I have ever had. Another favorite is the lamb meatballs pizza. Prior to enjoying your pie, make sure to try the Tuscan Kale salad and for desert the olive oil cake is very good. During this time that they are closed for repairs, they are hosting a "Toro Dreams" series of events at The Cookery. Every few weeks they setup shop in The Cookery for a themed night (Oysters, Mexican, and spaghetti are recent events) with all proceeds going to a local charity. It's a great way for the owners and staff of Pizzeria Toro to keep cooking while helping the community at the same time.
