According to Google Image Search, 12 out of every 13 people are men. Just FYI. I'm sure there some kind of interesting socio-pycho-something there.

I don't know much about sattelites but this one looks awesome. Aesthetically I mean. :P
We’re building a new satellite mission that will improve hurricane forecasting. Our CYGNSS mission is a constellation of eight micro satellites that will take measurements of ocean surface winds in and near the eye wall of storms. Instead of single satellite images provided every few days, CYGNSS will provide a new image every few hours. The mission is scheduled to launch in late 2016: http://go.nasa.gov/1fq848K #EarthRightNow

A planet with no star? The nightlife would never end! A new printable #exoplanet travel poster is available now: http://go.nasa.gov/1N84oE5

These special class of planets called rogue, or free-floating, planets wander alone in the galaxy. Not much is known about how these planets come to exist, but scientists theorize that they may be either failed stars or planets ejected from very young systems after an encounter with another planet. These rogue planets glow faintly from the heat of their formation. Once they cool down, they will be dancing in the dark. #NASABeyond

Fun times at Randol's. The band was Corey Arceneaux and the Zydeco Hot Peppers. They only play one speed of music -- just fast enough to qualify as your aerobic exercise for the day. :) Not too fast, but certainly not slow. Ever. No waltzes or even two-steps. Apparently a twentys-and-thirtys crowd who go to church on Sunday afternoons then head over to Randol's ... and man are they good at dancing. So good. Some great dancing last night.

Not that I'll remember it, but today's dictionary.com word of the day is an amazing one... and would be great for scrabble.

The natural shape of spaceships. Apollo vs NASA's current fleet under construction.

The Hershey's Kiss shape makes the spaceships inherently stable, and the broad flat bottom helps spread the blistering heat of re-entry.

By moving the centre of gravity we can alter how the ships fly, and thus roll and steer them to both reduce g-load and land precisely.
