Random Bits

So many to do lists…so little time.  But there’s always time for a cup of coffee and a little surfing.  Here’s a couple of things I found fascinating.

Saturday evening DH and I watched the Space X launch of their Falcon 1.  While the launch itself was a success something went wrong and it did not achieve orbit.  We’ll be watching for their next launch.

This I found at LGFThe Large Hadron Collider is ready for tests.  The photographs are just…mind blowing.  This is so far over my head, all I can tell you is to go look.  The comments are quite entertaining.  My favorite, “Oh my God, it’s full of stars!”  (That was when I first looked and there were 400 comments.  Just looked again, there’s over 900 comments now!)  Another article and more photos here.

It reminds me of Babylon 5, The Great Machine!

And…before the clock strikes midnight….

HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNITED STATES COAST GUARD!

Semper Paratus

Love, Mom
