Pacific Northwest Pictureshow

Photographer John Eklund took 260,000 pictures and used them to create this breathtaking video. The night sky and serene landscapes are awe inspiring.  This is a video I could happily watch over and over again.  Visit his website to see more of his work.

Tweets in Space!

Do you want to send your message to the stars?  Here's how you can!

On Friday September 21, 2012, log onto Twitter and add #tweetsinspace to your message. Now remember, timing is of the essence.  This must be done 8:30 – 9:00 PM Mountain Time, or 7:30-8PM PST; 9:30-10PM CST; 10:30-11PM EST.  I know all these time zones can make life confusing when it comes to coordinating an interstellar event like this, so thanks to the people at Tweets in Space for spelling it out so clearly on their webpage.

To learn more, watch this groovy video!  It's fun to watch, and the little girl at the end is WAY too cute!

You Can Always Count on Patrick Stewart

All children need Patrick Stewart to help them learn to count!

This next video is an interview in which Patrick Stewart discusses what it was like to go bald at 19.  It may have been traumatic at the time, but can we imagine him any other way?
