"International Space Station astronaut Terry Virts (@AstroTerry) tweeted this image of a Vulcan hand salute from orbit as a tribute to actor Leonard Nimoy, who died on Friday, Feb. 27, 2015. Nimoy played science officer Mr. Spock in the Star Trek series that served as an inspiration to generations of scientists, engineers and sci-fi fans around the world.
Cape Cod and Boston, Massachusetts, Nimoy’s home town, are visible through the station window.”
THEY’RE FINALLY WORKING ON LOOKING FOR ALASKA. OH MY GOD. IT’S HAPPENING.
this is so fucking important to me. one of my followers told me years ago that I reminded her of alaska(I used to be brunette. it was badass.) and basically I was her real life alaska and she comes by every now and then to remind me of it. and other followers would sometimes chime in too. and it’s been a while since I read it, but I was mesmerized with her character. how mysterious it was. and this little memory is something I cherish and think about all the time. she used to tell me to go to the casting call for it so I could really be alaska and now finally after years of sitting around on a shelf they’re finally doing something with it. I’m so excited to see it come to life. I so look forward to seeing who they cast and how they do the screen play. I’m ecstatic. they’re finally doing it. Looking For Alaska is going to be a movie.
"Growing up, we were taught that the Fire Nation was the greatest civilization in history and somehow, the war was our way of sharing our greatness with the rest of the world. What an amazing lie that was. The people of the world are terrified by the Fire Nation! They don’t see our greatness, they hate us! And we deserve it. We’ve created an era of fear in the world. And if we don’t want the world to destroy itself, we need to replace it with an era of peace and kindness."
