I was mad that my printer failed while printing the Banjo Ukulele, so I assembled what had completed.  I call it the section view Banjo Ukulele.

Testing out slicing with Cura on my MendelMax. Looks like using the retraction setting makes a huge difference. Adios strings!

So, uh, +NASA picked my image in their gallery.  Kinda cool.
 
On Friday, August 31, the family of Neil Armstrong held a memorial service celebrating his life in Cincinnati.  Coincidentally, that very night, a rare second full moon of the month, known as a blue moon, was seen.  In honor of Neil, we asked you to share publicly your photos of the moon from Friday night on Google+ and tag them with the hashtag #WinkAtTheMoon .  We have posted a gallery of some of our favorites on our +NASA page. 
 
After Neil’s passing, his family stated: “For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”

Here's some of our favorites, in no particular order:

According to the Google+ sidebar, #Supermoon is trending, so here is my photo of the "super moon" and the not super moon. I did some quick research (research = google search) on the orbit of the moon, and the moon is almost 50,000 km closer to use at Perigee than at Apogee. This is approximately a 12% reduction is apparent size.

Both photos were taken with a Nikon D40 on the back of a Meade ETX 90.

You probably shouldn't believe it. You will need to re-calibrate your battery in order to get a proper reading.

+Jatin Solanki +Sean Timmons Here is the drum smoker I made on Friday.  With a 20 lb bag of kingsford, this was able to run at temp for over 18 hours without touching anything.  I sealed it up and the coals were extinguished in about 2 hours.

Can't get a cheap drum so it costs more than I wanted it to.

I followed the basic tutorial to enter text (Hello World!) and submit it using a button to have it show up on a new screen. It was helpful, but the file structure and syntax is way over my head. I have some clue what the code blocks are, but knowing why they are required and advancing that to creating my own applications seems impossible at the moment.

Just about the only thing I can do without using the App Inventor website is create layouts that do absolutely nothing, but look nice.
 
Interested in getting into Android App development but don't know how to get started?

Android Training now includes a set of excellent 101 classes that introduce the fundamental concepts of Android development in a structured, cohesive way.

There's a bunch of new advanced training courses too, so head over and let us know what you think!
