Astronauts playing futbol on the ISS.
 
Football in space! When it's played in the American modules by the international crew, is it soccer?

If an efficient method of producing fusion energy is invented it will change the world forever. We will no longer be dependent of fossil fuels and will have essentially unlimited energy as we will literally be able to use the oceans as fuel. So why aren't we already using fusion energy? Turns out it is sort of hard to do.

Every once in a while you'll run across a simple task or goal in your life. Maybe a small bug in your code, a minor feature request, or maybe you just want to make some coffee cake.

Every once in a while, this is what happens instead.

Methane as a biofuel. This brings a whole new meaning to passing gas.

In 1970 a dead whale washed up on the Oregon coast.  No one knew the best way to get rid of the carcass so they did the most reasonable thing ever...blow it up with dynamite!  huge chunks of whale flew hundreds of feet smashing cars in a nearby parking lot.
 
How do you dispose of a washed up whale?
When a whale decomposes, not only does it smell, but it fills up with gas and can explode due to the pressure. To prevent this, the current go-to method is puncturing the whale to release the gas. But, in 1970, the answer was dynamite. Footage of the explosion captured whale parts landing 800 feet from the explosion site, smashing cars, luckily no people were injured.

ISS at "night"
 
This isn't a science fiction movie — it's the view in the International Space Station, photographed by an Expedition 40 crew member, showing how it looks inside the space station while the crew is asleep. The dots near the hatch point to a Soyuz spacecraft docked to the station in case the crew was to encounter an emergency. This view is looking into the Destiny Laboratory from Node 1 (Unity) with Node 2 (Harmony) in the background. Destiny is the primary research laboratory for U.S. payloads, supporting a wide range of experiments and studies.

C'mon America... We've been kinda-sorta metric since the 1970s. Let's finish the job already.

Landing time! The Soyuz TMA-11M spacecraft is seen as it lands with Expedition 39 Commander Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), Soyuz Commander Mikhail Tyurin of Roscosmos, and Flight Engineer Rick Mastracchio of NASA near the town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan on Wednesday, May 14, 2014. Wakata, Tyurin and Mastracchio returned to Earth after more than six months onboard the International Space Station where they served as members of the Expedition 38 and 39 crews.

It has been awhile since I have had time to take or work on pictures.  Here is a picture of a waterfall in Yellowstone I took last summer. #yellowstonenationalpark
