Saturn's moon Iapetus has a light side and a dark side, like yin and yang. Scientists have at last figured out why.

Saturn’s Iapetus looks like nothing else we’ve ever seen. What made it so?

Today in History: Higher Primate Ham Travels in Space before Man
On January 31, 1961 — 54 years ago today — a patient, trusting, competent, and cooperative Ham, a chimpanzee astronaut trained by NASA, became the first higher primate to travel safely in space in a suborbital flight. Ham was chosen because chimpanzees are the closest living relatives to humans, sharing more than 98% of human’s genetic blueprint. In NASA’s training program for chimps, Ham emerged at the top of his class, so he was selected to make this first suborbital flight. During his 16 minute suborbital flight, Ham participated in a brief experiment to test if his reactions were as quick in weightlessness as they were on Earth, and he performed the tests only slightly slower in space. Ham beat humans into space, including Yuri Gagarin, the Russian-Soviet cosmonaut, who made human’s first orbital spaceflight on April 12, 1961.

Dr. Jane Goodall, the famous primatologist and the foremost expert on chimpanzees, was dismayed at Ham’s treatment — his kidnapping* from his home environment, his being brought to NASA training facilities for intensive training, and his flight in which he was terrified at times. Since this time, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has organized protests that have put pressure on NASA to end experiments with monkeys (at least for now). 

*“U.S. Air Force engaged collectors to source some chimps from the native forest” in Africa.

The Ice Queen
Iceland
I was hunting for ice pieces along the the black lava beach of Jökulsárlón and I was looking for something special. All of the sudden, there she was! The Ice Queen!

What does the side of the moon that can't be seen from Earth look like? This video answers that question. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1KcDj1C

Vinyl Record Lovers Will Get This

Digital fans may shrug and go - Meh. But vinyl record lovers and collectors will see the flowing peaks and valleys representing sounds as reflections of art. The words "graceful" "ebullience" and "joy" will leap to the mind. Ah, vinyl. Those lush notes, those engulfing sounds, that deep warmth. Most assuredly not digital.

11 Years and Counting! The Mars Opportunity rover has driven 25.9 miles (41.7 kilometers) since it landed in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars on Jan. 25, 2004 (Universal Time, which was Jan. 24, PST). That is farther than any other off-Earth surface vehicle has driven. The Mars Exploration Rovers's work on Mars was initially planned for three months. During that prime mission and for more than a decade of bonus performance in extended missions, Opportunity has returned compelling evidence about wet environments on ancient Mars.

Horrible, but I was exhausted, while going to my room a dead mouse in the hallway by my room door got me to turn around and keep driving. At least they gave me back my money.

Basic good Chinese menu. Well cooked. Honest. They also have a Thai menu but the waitress could not understand my quality questions so went China. Good dinner and an easy walk if you near the Fulton Street center.

A compound inside Jerusalem run by nuns. Excellent location, though it is in the Arab section it is safe. Think of it as a large B&B.

Very good. Very clean and fresh. More than just sushi. It has Chinese food, seafood, even a Mongolian grill. I'm not a big buffet fan but this one is the exception. Also, it is very hard to find on a basic search, though. 2nd and 3rd trips were just as good. I'm leaving town, and hope it is here when I return.

Every single year for 15 years. It is a bit rough, and always crowded. It is two building joined together, the north side is a bar, and the south side is the kitchen and dinning are, well not really, it is like a long noodle. It you get there at 6pm, you will not find a seat.

Scary. No cops with lots of bums having around. Bring exact fare, credit/debit cards can NOT be used, the guy in the booth will not give you change, the ATM charges a $3.50 fee for $20 but the coin change machine only returns $0.25 coins, so you will be walking around with a pocket full of quarters and homeless guys asking you for money. It is a lot cheaper than a cab, but very anxiety generating. Definitely not to be done in the evening. The buses work well and are on time, though. ** this is a per a 6'2' USF student that took the Megabus from the Miami airport (which was great), and then took the #5 to campus **

Second time I returned it was actually not good. I guess this place is hit or miss. Too bad.
