The Orbital Sciences Corporation Antares rocket is seen shortly after it was raised into position at launch Pad-0A, Tuesday, December 16, 2013, at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, VA. The Antares will launch a Cygnus spacecraft on a cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. The Orbital-1 mission is Orbital Sciences' first contracted cargo delivery flight to the space station for NASA. Among the cargo aboard Cygnus set to launch to the space station are science experiments, crew provisions, spare parts and other hardware. Launch is scheduled for 9:19 p.m. EST on Thursday, Dec. 19. Weather permitting, it may be widely visible along the east coast of the United States. Photo Credit: (NASA/Bill Ingalls)

The Geneva Drive, or Maltese Mechanism, converts continuous rotational motion into an intermittent ‘tick.’ This is usually responsible for the ticking of the minute and/or second hand in clocks.

Ron Burgundy does the actual news in North Dakota! Hilarious!
 
Whoa, Ron Burgundy REALLY did the local news tonight in Bismarck, ND !

I wish he'd come down here to New Zealand and do the local news... talk about sheep news, horse blanket news, and things of this nature.
