Now that's a Selfie!
 
Selfie from space! This is an image of astronaut Barry (Butch) Wilmore from today's spacewalk. His spacewalking partner, Terry Virts, can be seen in the reflection of Wilmore's visor. The duo rigged a series of power and data and routed 340 of 360 feet of cable, which is part of a reconfiguration of International Space Station​ systems and modules to accommodate the delivery of new docking adapters that commercial crew vehicles will use later this decade to deliver astronauts to the station.

The duo will venture outside the space station again on Wednesday, Feb. 25, to deploy two more cables and lubricate the end of the station’s robotic arm. Details:  http://go.nasa.gov/1D3SOpA #spacewalk #launchamerica #astrobutch

Gaiman's friend, Mr. Pratchett...
Terry Pratchett may strike many as a twinkly old elf, but that’s not him at all. Neil Gaiman on the inner rage that drives his ailing friend’s writing

Incredible talent!

You could say 16 year-old Shania McDonagh is good at drawing. You could also say that she is absolutely, mind-blowingly brilliant at it, too. She has entered the Texaco Children’s Art Competition before and won in different age categories, but this year she won the overall prize.

Nice Force!

Well done, Sir!
After a mother in Ottawa, Canada was scolded by a customer for nursing her baby inside a Starbucks and a male barista came to her aid, the coffee giant expressed support for its employee who it says did the right thing.

A small number of men regularly take part in city knitting groups.
