Images of the cosmos from the late 1950s and early 60s. Most are from the Mount Wilson and Palomar Observatories. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the high definition and detailed images coming out of Hubble and similar telescopes today, but there is something about these old photos. What they lacked in detail and resolution they made up for with wonder and mystery. Can you imagination how mind blowing these pictures would have been when they first came out of the developing tank in the 50′s?
Debbie Reynolds, best known for her performances in classic Hollywood musicals like Singin’ in the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown, died Wednesday one day after her daughter, actor Carrie Fisher, her agent confirmed. She was 84.
Her death marks the loss of another Hollywood legend, who became a major star in the 1950s and ’60s. She also starred in The Affairs of Dobie Gillis, How the West Was Won, The Singing Nun, and Divorce American Style. She continued acting throughout the decades, including in the 1996 Albert Brooks film Mother.
