The loneliest man.

STS-41B, February 12, 1984

Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger’s payload bay, McCandless went “free-flying” to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space.

Một vài lần anh từng có ý nghĩ như chàng trai này, khi còn yêu. Và nếu có thời gian, hẳn anh đã hành động như bạn ấy. Đó là vào một lúc nào đó không chuẩn bị gì hết, đột nhiên quyết định pack hành lý, thay nhớt, đổ đầy bình xăng rồi xin phép ba mẹ để bắt đầu khởi hành một chuyến hành trình dài thật dài đi thăm người mình thương, tiện thể rong ruổi vài ngày trên những con đường của Việt Nam.

Đó là một suy nghĩ khá bồng bột và ngông cuồng, anh biết. Nhưng anh cũng biết mình hiểu rõ sự mãnh liệt của tình yêu mà chàng trai trẻ này đang có. Anh cũng biết, niềm hi vọng và sự phấn khích của chàng trai ấy cứ căng tràn dần qua từng con đường lộng gió, qua hàng trăm dãy núi xanh um, những khu rừng thâm u hay những trảng cỏ ao hồ trải dài tít tắp. Băng qua được hàng chuc những thành phố lớn nhỏ sầm uất, những thị trấn, làng quê hẻo lánh hay cả những nơi chốn heo hút không tên vắng bóng người. Cứ bền bỉ từng cây số một, từng giờ này qua giờ khác, ngày này qua ngày khác chỉ hướng về phía trước - ở một thành phố xa lạ nơi có người con gái mình thương. Chỉ để mong được gặp lại cho một cái

Giả sử như cô gái trong câu chuyện này ở xa hơn - là ba nghìn, bốn nghìn hay mười nghìn cây số thì anh cũng không quá bất ngờ nếu đến một ngày biết tin chàng trai ấy quyết định đi. Bởi anh cũng sẽ như thế. Dù có phải đi tàu, đi xe, đi bộ và mất bao nhiêu ngày đi nữa thì cũng sẽ đi. Bởi điều đó thật sự cần thiết và quan trọng. Cứ kiên trì đi như vậy, rồi sẽ có ngày gặp được người mình cần gặp thôi.

Có một vài bạn cmt tình cảm thời nay là vậy, như thế là dại rồi, hay thậm chí là ngu dốt… Nhưng có sao đâu, anh nghĩ, dù có thể tâm hồn chàng trai này có thể đã tan nát vào tối nay, và khi trở về anh biết bạn sẽ rất rất buồn, thậm chí là có thể sẽ khóc trên suốt đường trở về nhà. Anh thương chàng trai này, khi tưởng tượng và đồng cảm với sự tổn thương mà bạn ấy đang gặp phải, vì thứ mang danh nghĩa tình yêu. Những điều cảm động mà đối với người trong cuộc chẳng mang ý nghĩa gì, sao chúng cứ đáng buồn đến vậy.

Nhưng anh cũng nghĩ, chàng trai ấy đã rất dũng cảm làm được một việc vô cùng tuyệt vời, và đã có một chuyến hành trình để đời để có thể kể cho ai đó về sau này. Với một người chân thành như vậy, dù thế nào đi nữa, rồi sẽ có ngày có được hạnh phúc. Nhất định vậy.

President Ronald Reagan gets a laugh from NASA officials in Mission Control when he jokingly asks crew members, astronauts Joe Engle and Richard Truly if they could stop by Washington en route to their California landing site in order that he might come along.

What liquid lipstick do you perfer? I have the kat von d in the shade mother but i dont like the way it feels when it dries. Any suggestions?

My top three are Colourpop, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and Kat Von D’s! CP’s and JSC’s are the most comfortable and lightweight in my opinion but I’ve never had issues with KVD’s feeling heavy. Try wearing a thin layer of lip balm underneath and using only as much of the lipstick as you need. When you use too much product, it can feel clumpy and heavy on your lips!

anonymous asked:

hey beautyfam! regardless of whether some of your mods enjoy their products, please dont recommend limecrime to your followers. a lot of the people following you are beginners at makeup and are looking for people to recommend good products to them which is great! but limecrime is a really shady company and so many people buying from them have had their personal information stolen, please keep your followers aware of this!

This is our blog and we’re not going to police each other on how we answer things on here because there are people within our group that have different opinions on limecrime, we’ve talked about it on here (along with other controversial brands like JSC for example). We have members that sponsor limecrime and it would be really messy to have that revoked just because they’re on a blog that talks about how messy LC is. We’ve had heavy discussions about this topic and it’s gotten to the point where all of us are frustrated with the way people address this issue in our inbox, our anons are rude, pushy, condescending, and telling us (12! people!) how to run our blog. Not that this message is particularly rude, this is in reference to other messages we’ve gotten concerning the topic. No disrespect, it’s amazing that people boycott certain brands but don’t hold everyone to those same standards and have a superiority complex when they don’t. We have answered dozens of questions regarding LC in the past and the final thing we have to say is: do what you’re comfortable with. We highly recommend doing your research and only purchasing from brands you’re comfortable with and wish to support. We cannot make that decision for you. Some of our mods genuinely enjoy their makeup, and that is why it’s recommended. Feel free to ask us for dupes of their products and we’ll try to assist you in finding alternatives. - BF  

Looking for someone who truly wants my company because he cannot see himself with another.
Someone who thinks of me and him in every story.
Someone who when he goes to sleep every night he hopes that he will wake up next to me to wish me good morning in a new language.
Someone who will want to be there until we take our last breath together holding hands.

All I want is to be happy with someone who loves me as much as I love him!

Subject: Flight Day 16

Friends,

It’s hard to believe but I’m coming up on 16 days in space and we land tomorrow.

I can tell you a few things:

Floating is great – at two weeks it really started to become natural. I move much more slowly as there really isn’t a hurry. If you go to fast then stopping can be quite awkward. At first, we were still handing each other things, but now we pass them with just a little push.

We lose stuff all the time. I’m kind of prone to this on Earth, but it’s much worse here as I can now put things on the walls and ceiling too. It’s hard to remember that you have to look everywhere when you lose something, not just down.

It was Saturday and I was home in the midst of a cleaning frenzy.  Since it was my grandson’s tenth birthday, my plans for the day included joining family members to celebrate that occasion. I was wearing ratty workout clothes, planning to get on my stair-stepper after I finished vacuuming. Periodically, I’d pause to look out my north-facing French doors that led to my patio to check for…

NASA bans the word 'Jesus'

The name of Jesus is not welcome in the Johnson Space Center newsletter, according to a complaint filed on behalf of a group of Christians who work for NASA.

The JSC Praise & Worship Club was directed by NASA attorneys to refrain from using the name ‘Jesus’ in club announcements that appeared in a Space Center newsletter.

“It was shocking to all of us and very frustrating,” NASA engineer Sophia Smith told me. “NASA has a long history of respecting religious speech. Why wouldn’t they allow us to put the name Jesus in the announcement about our club?”

Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s largest religious liberty law firms, threatened to file a federal lawsuit unless NASA apologizes and stops censoring the name ‘Jesus’.

The JSC Today newsletter is distributed electronically and includes a number of Space Center events – from salsa dancing lessons to soccer camp.

NASA issued a statement late Monday – that did not refute Liberty Institute’s charge.
