What is it Like to be a NASA Intern?

We asked prospective interns that follow us on social media what questions they had for our current interns. 

You asked…they answered! Let’s take a look:

Answer: “Yes, sometimes astronauts request to run through the International Space Station simulation that we have using the hyper-reality lab.”

Answer: “Persistence is the key to getting your first NASA internship. Work hard, study hard, keep applying and persevere.”

Answer: “NASA is looking for passionate, smart and curious, full-time students, who are U.S. citizens, at least 16 years of age and have a minimum 3.0 GPA.”

Answer: “In addition to STEM majors, NASA has many opportunities for students studying business, photography, English, graphics and public relations.”

Answer: “The highlight has been the chance to learn a lot more about embedded systems and coding for them, and just seeing how everyone’s efforts in lab come together for our small part in the AVIRIS-NG project.”

Answer: Yes! Here at the Kennedy Space Center is where all the action takes place. Check out the schedule on our website!”

Answer:  “There are 10 NASA field centers and they all accept interns.”

Answer: “Yes, we do! I am currently working in tech development for an X-ray telescope that is launched into space to take pictures of our galaxy.”

Answer: “The greatest thing I’ve learned as a NASA intern is to not be afraid of failing and to get involved in any way you can. NASA is a very welcoming environment that offers a lot of opportunities for its interns to learn.”

Answer: My favorite experience from being a NASA intern is meeting people from all around the world and being exposed to the different cultures.”

POOR INTERNATIONAL BTS ARMY LIFE

im broke and im sad so i made this 

  • currently cannot buy BTS BON VOYAGE Season 2 
  • isn’t registered as an offical ARMY
  • can’t buy merch
    -saves enough money to buy merch (cue tears of joy)
    -gets bitchsmacked by shipping costs (cue tears of sadness)
  • can’t buy concert tickets or plane tickets
  • *is in europe*
  • the only way to support is by voting and sharing things on twitter
  • w e e p i n g
  • jealousy over other ARMYs BTS collections (i will admit to that)
  • doesn’t understand korean but smiles when the boys laugh (because i care very much about their happiness and health)
  • eng subs are my favorite thing
  • quietly awaiting for someone to upload and share BTS BON VOYAGE Season 2 on some other platform
  • *prints out picture of BTS* ”this is the closest i’ll ever get to them”
  • remembering that BTS is grateful for all of their fans including international  ARMYs and that they’re thankful and you feel much love and appreciation :’)
  • *is still broke but rich in love and support for BTS*

anonymous asked:

You love Harry, you love Louis and you love their love but what is your favorite thing about their love? What picture/gif/video represents their love the best?

Oh my god, so THIS is an extremely hard question, because as in every relationship it’s completely multifaceted and it’s hard to just pick one thing that represents it. It’s impossible. 

That being said, I always liked it when we saw how they instinctively check the other one’s reaction first after saying something.

Or how they tried to get closer in subtle ways, seeking closeness and comfort.

And look at that last gif, Louis always reacts to Harry in a very noticeable way.

Whether it’s his face

Or his entire body…

it’s truly something else.

These pictures represent one of my favorite parts of the relationship I have with Kaiju. She is very curious about new places, and in these pictures she is exploring my classroom. However, periodically when she explores, she’ll come back to me and lay her head on my foot for a moment or stand by me and confirm I’m still there. No matter where she is, I’m her Safest Thing. She trusts me to be there and to be safe- and even when she’s exploring, she seeks affirmation and comfort from my presence. That’s something I find really special.

Warnings: None. Just fluff.

A/N: I’m so sorry this took so long. Also, thank you @fuckkoffcourtney for this idea. I hope you like it! I really enjoyed writing this one and any feedback would be much appreciated.:) i suck at titles lmao

The drums and cheers of the audience were exceptionally louder in this game, which comes as not a surprise considering that this is the senior’s final game against in high school and so far, the fight has been neck to neck. The seniors had evidently been giving their best and some more throughout the game. It was their last but more importantly, college coaches are spread out throughout the stadium scanning for potential candidates to recruit to their team. You looked at the scoreboard worriedly then back to the field. The cheers died down as the last batter walk towards his position. It was Jeff, the star player of Liberty’s baseball team. One last point. That’s all it takes for Liberty’s team to take home the victory. Shuddering at the thought of how much pressure he must be feeling at the moment, you quickly stood up along with other students who shout Jeff’s name in their cheer.

Okay so this has irked me for a while - the first picture is some original artwork for the Artemis Fowl graphic novel, done by Giovanni Rigano and Paolo Lamanna. I like it and all, and it brings some of my favorite characters to life, but it’s just…. REALLY, REALLY INACCURATE. Holly’s supposed to have an auburn crew cut, a hooked nose, and dark skin (which is actually one of the very first things we learn about her in book 1, come on now). Artemis’s eyebrows look bigger than his eyes. And I’m not even going to get into Butler’s head-to-body ratio. Of course, no offense to the original artists, but this is how their characters are described in the book, and I was a bit disappointed in how the graphic novel of my favorite book turned out.  So I took it upon myself to kind of……fix it, as it were.

What do you guys think?

CSBB Artist Spotlight: fairytalesandtimetravel

Today’s Captain Swan Big Bang Spotlight features @fairytalesandtimetravel!

What kinds of artwork do you make?

I mainly do digital art, both paintings and drawings.

What’s your favorite thing about creating artwork?

I like taking something that I see in my mind and trying to bring it to life especially when it comes to stories or fan art. Kind of like fanfiction, making pictures that I’d like to see happen on screen or maybe one’s that I loved and make it my own. It’s rewarding. Though it doesn’t always work out as planned and it can be very frustrating, I still love to do it.

What’s one of your greatest strengths when it comes to creating artwork?

That’s tough, I tend to see the flaws when I work. But I love working with colours and I try play around with them and see how they can add to what I want the picture to say.

What’s something you’ve always wanted to try your hand at, but haven’t had a chance yet?

More line work, I think. I haven’t done too much of it, I need more practice.

If you are new to the Captain Swan Big Bang, what made you decide to sign up? What are you looking forward to?

I saw last year’s work and it looked like a lot of fun!

First Artwork: https://fairytalesandtimetravel.tumblr.com/post/152570668660/lieutenant-duckling-masquerade-happy-halloween

This was a lot of fun to work on from the costume and the background And I like how the lighting came out here. Kristen had such a great fic, I was excited to make something for it. And I love to work on dances!

Second Artwork: https://fairytalesandtimetravel.tumblr.com/post/150926275690/happy-once-upon-a-time-day-here-is-some-sketch

This isn’t my most rendered out work but I’m proud of the colours I have here again. I think it fits the tone of my fic, Come Wayward Souls. I had this one part I really wanted to draw and I’m happy with how it came out. I’m all for soft tender moments between Emma and Killian.

Third Artwork: https://fairytalesandtimetravel.tumblr.com/post/148522597885/one-painting-of-the-man-who-ruined-our

This is probably my favourite portrait I’ve done. I’m just really happy with how it came out and his hair especially. And again, the colours… I really like colours lol

Yuri on Ice Fanfic Rec List

Here are some of my favorite YOI fanfics so far! :) This list will be updated often! If you have any suggestions for fics that I can add, feel free to message me. 

Last update: April 23, 2017

My organization is kinda weird and all over the place right now since I’m constantly updating this, but basically it goes from my favorites of all time from each ship, and THEN to the rest of the series, then to the multi-chaptered fics, then to the one-shots.. If that makes sense lol. Sorry. ^-^’;

Also, let me add: I was originally going to list how many chapters each fic has, but some are currently ongoing! Therefore, only the series/fics that are COMPLETE will have the number of chapters listed so that I don’t have to update this every day. :) And another thing: I have fics separated by the main ship. However, many of the Victuuri fanfictions I have listed also have Otayuri on the side as well, so I apologize if some of you don’t really like that too much. Thanks for understanding!

Note: Most of these are explicit rated. ;)

Update: Removed the majority of my “notes” sections, because my wording just bothers me lol. 


Victuuri:

————- Favorite Victuuri Fics ————-

Beside the Dancing Sea by lily_winterwood and MapleTreeway

Rating: Explicit

Type: Multi-chapter

Chapters: 13

Words: 186,584

He’s finally here in this lovely and quiet little beach cottage, and the rest of the year seems to stretch out infinitely before him. Time will pass, though, and it will pass faster than he realizes, but in the meantime he will stop worrying about writer’s block and deadlines and not even having the foggiest clue what his next novel’s going to be about, and live.

New York Times-bestselling author Viktor Nikiforov arrives in the sleepy seaside town of Torvill Cove to cure his writer’s block. After encountering local wallflower Yuuri Katsuki at a party, he discovers that this mysterious dark-haired man has a couple secrets up his sleeve.

And Viktor will be damned if he doesn’t find out just what those secrets are.


Victory of the Night by c0rnfl0wer

Rating: Explicit

Type: Series

Part 1- Meet Me By the River:

Chapters: 1

Words: 11,527

Every Kupala Night has come and gone without his attending, but now that Viktor Nikiforov is getting older and taking over the position as leader of his village, he has to start taking his life in a different direction. He wasn’t sure whether he expected anything at all in this way. But when Yuuri catches his wreath, he finds the path he had always longed for.

Historical/Mythology AU based on Slavic mythology and traditions, specifically Kupala Night - a midsummer celebration involving merrymaking in a few different ways.

Part 2- Ivan da Maria:

Chapters: ONGOING

Words: N/A

Rusalka: a living-dead aquatic spirit in folklore that varies in their attitude toward humans.
Navka: a subdivision of the Rusalka, known for its charming cruelty.

Viktor never minded when human civilization built up around him, or when other spirits began sharing the waters with him. He easily dominated every tradition that the centuries presented; that was what he minded. No one wants to be known for tragedy. No one wants to be subjected to loneliness and despair forever. No one wants to drag their beloved one down. Everyone wants a happy ending, even if it isn’t in their nature.

Viktor, the son of the previous boss, knows only too well just how frightening this man is.

He is, after all, married to him.

Notes: Mafia AU. Major content warning for rape/non-con, as well as child abuse, suicide mention, torture, and a LOT of violence.

A single event changes the course of Yuuri’s life, throwing him into a bitter rivalry with Viktor Nikiforov that spans across his entire skating career. But as the years go on, rivalry and hatred begin to develop into something very different and Yuuri doesn’t seem to be able to stay away, no matter how hard he tries.

Chapters: ONGOING

Words: N/A

“Just say the word.” came the whisper as Victor stepped close, behind them Yuuri was aware of guns out and at the ready, of confused men and questioned loyalties, here Victor was offering, and Yuuri was too selfish to say no.

“Ok.” Yuuri smiled as this game of masquerade came to an end, what would happen now, he didn’t know, he would probably die, his family would come after him and try to put a knife in his back or a bullet between his eyes, none of it mattered, because together they would fight, and the rest of the world would finally burn.

Notes: Mafia AU. Content warning for violence, blood, gore, etc. 


Faded by martialartist816

Victor knows only two things: that he’s very drunk and that Yuuri looks very good in that suit.

Notes: PORN. VERY, VERY GOOD PORN. This is my favorite oneshot of all time and I HIGHLY FREAKING RECOMMEND IT. This oneshot is my #aesthetic and if it was a person then I would marry it, no questions asked. The line about the skyline is what got me tbh I am so wEAK for that type of sappy shit and it was such a visual line that I could picture the whole setting clearly in my head and hoooooo I just REALLY love this fic. 👌👌👌 Read it now.

Yuuri swallowed past the tightness in his throat, “Am I the one being interviewed now?”

“I just want to know more about you,” Viktor responded. “You write so much on your blog and within media, but none of those words are ever about yourself.”

Music filled the momentary silence. “There’s not much to say,” Yuuri eventually answered.

“There’s always something to say.”

Notes: Journalist AU.

the death of a bachelor by exile_wrath

Rating: Teen and Up (may be subject to change?)

Type: Multi-chapter

Chapters: ONGOING

Words: N/A

In which Victor is at the top of the (criminal) world, and ends up falling for the hot bartender that works at a Giacometti speakeasy.

Alternatively: In which Yuuri is a bartender with a thing for the hot patron which could probably kill him but also wants to have sex with him. To be fair, Yuuri is pretty down to sleep with him too.

But things don’t go as planned, sometimes, and rather than Victor finding someone to warm his bed for a night, he finds Yuuri, who offers him an intimacy and care that he had never thought he’d have. And in turn, Yuuri finds someone achingly lonely but willing to open his heart so they can both be together in a way they had only dreamed of.

Of Love and Other Emotions by smudgesofink

Rating: Teen & Up

Type: Series

Part 1- Fascination: 

Chapters: 1

Words: 1,198

Victor didn’t understand it at first but Yuuri has such a deep fascination with every part of his body.

Part 2- Silliness and Stolen Shirts: 

Chapters: 1

Words: 2,764

“You’re,” Victor begins in a stammer, and wait, are the tips of his ears turning pink? “You’re wearing my shirt.” Yuuri looks down at himself once again, and sure enough, it’s Victor’s wine red shirt that’s hanging off his body.

In which Victor is weak for the Boyfriend Shirt, and Yuuri doesn’t realize he is, too.

Part 3- Hold Me Tight: 

Chapters: 2

Words: 11,556

Katsuki Yuuri is not a tactile man. Anyone who’s spent a minute with him can tell you that much.

Victor, however—

To say that Victor is touchy-feely is the understatement of the century.

So when Victor just stops touching Yuuri, without explanation, without reason, it makes for a painfully jarring experience.

(Alternatively titled: Five Times Victor Hugs Yuuri, and the One Time He Doesn’t)

Notes: Content warning for homophobia in part 3.

“Yuuri, let’s not think about that,” Viktor said, holding out his hands. Yuuri set his other skate aside. “You should take your mind off it; maybe seek a distraction–”

“Okay.”

“–Anything to disengage from the nega–” Viktor stopped, blinking. “Wait, what?”

Yuuri rose back to his feet, moving to stand in front of Viktor. Emotion burned at the edge of his irises, and in the limited light his stare flashed more crimson than brown, “I said, ‘okay’.”

cuttlef1sh  asked:

Heh, thanks for getting back so quickly. Personally, I'm a fan of Style, Crenny (I cannot find any decent fic for this wth, perhaps I'm not looking hard enough?), Staig, Bendy, and K2. Big fan of angst. And yeah, love the blog - I've been lowkey stalking it since last night, not to be weird.

Oooh some lovely choices my friend. (Thank you for the compliment again, not weird!) The original ask for this was asking for fic recommendations, and I replied that one away so I could grab what pairings they were into. Also the lack of Crenny content is a complete tragedy and I’m hoping to directly change that by writing more of it someday, haha. This got lengthy, sorry!

Fanfiction Recommendations (A Short Few)

Splendid by SaucyMongoose. (Crenny)

This writer has a very unique grip on language that I adore. The whole fic gave me a feeling that I want to call whimsical, like I was floating through a breeze of words. It’s incomplete as of now, but well worth the read so far. The writer hasn’t put out too much as of now but I imagine the quality of their work must resonate throughout their repertoire. It’s such a pretty use of language, almost like poetry. 

Painted in Shrouds by Courtanie (K2)

I’ve been in love with Courtanie’s writing from day one, and this is the first fic I read of hers. It really sucked me in, and I felt like I was reading a particularly good book rather than fanfiction. It had an excellent, driven plot, with a really compelling story. I’m also a sucker for Kysterion, admittedly. My other recommendations from the same writer would be Ok, Cupid It Isn’t Funny Anymore (a really lovely K2 one-shot) and if you’re interested in a whole lotta whump and Kyle-suffering, Seven Candles. Not for the faint of heart, but it has angst covered and then some. If I’m being honest, even though I haven’t been able to sit down and read every one of her works, I’ve yet to find one I didn’t love. Seriously consider her if you haven’t already.

Put Our Pistols Down by scarlettshazam (Style)

There are a ton of Style fics out there that are worth recommending, but I don’t see this one very often and it deserves some stage time. Scarlettshazam as a whole has a great handle on all things ranging from bizarre to downright horrible (in a good way), but they’ve got a ton of great angst content besides this fic. They’re not afraid to write the gritty details of reality as it hits their characters, and it packs a punch. This one is one of my favorites because it paints a very unique picture- the setting isn’t cookie-cutter South Park, even if some themes remain. There’s something about the way their words flow that always hooks me in and does a great job of keeping me captivated and invested in the plot. Also worth a read is The Game Of Life (angsty K2) and a lot of their one-shots are awesome. Specifically, Too Old To Dream (Style) made me cry buckets, no exaggeration.

Mysterion Trilogy by indirectkissesiniceland (K2, Creek)

This is one of my favorite series for sure. While this one is definitely on the lighthearted side, I found myself so delightfully wrapped up in the storyline and the way the characters were written. I highly recommend the whole thing, but if you are interested in avoiding Creek, just the first installment is K2 oriented with Creek in the background, and it’s not necessary to read the second one to find resolution from the first. Yeah, Dude, Civil War is another ongoing project that they’re co-writing with polarspicecap (whom I also recommend as an individual writer for some unique takes and great humor) which is probably the lightest read in this list. It’s just a fun time, and a pleasant read. Gold Digger (K2) made my heart feel again, it was so sweet. Overall, this writer does a lot of fun stuff if you’re looking for great stories to cleanse your intense angst palate.

If I could recommend every great fic I’ve ever read I’d be here all day long, but I’m going to cut things short here. I don’t have much for Staig, as I ship it but not too enthusiastically so I haven’t sought it out, and same goes for Bendy. I wanted to publish this publicly for more people to get to see and maybe consider. Hope you don’t mind, and hopefully I suggested something you haven’t read yet. Enjoy!

So I'm new to the fandom. Can you please explain why I see people calling Bellamy Bradbury? Sorry if this is a stupid question I'm just so confused.

well, the blake triplets was a meme during season 3 or more like a coping mechanism bc basically everyone was sick of bellamy’s s3 arc.
hawthornewhisperer explained this better than i ever could so i’ll just copypaste: 


“It would appear that Cl.exa fans refer to Bellamy as Boris when they’re being unflattering in their depictions of him.  (I’m going to choose to believe this is their version of L.exa and this is them being nice to keep hate out of the tags.  No one tell me otherwise.)  Idk where Bradbury comes from– apparently it’s his middle name in the books (…NERD) and perhaps Cl.exa fans use that too.  Idk, that’s not ultimately important.

Anyhoo, it would appear that some Bellamy fans seized on this idea and split his character development into three stages: Bradbury (early season one: bad hair and a tendency to act like an overprotective patriarchal gorilla about Octavia), Bellamy (late season one and all of season two: sensitive, guilt stricken, heroic), and Boris (season three: likes murdering, listens to Pike, has very little resemblance to the actual character of Bellamy despite Bob’s valiant efforts).  They are now the Blake triplets.

Bradbury is a dick but redeemable, Bellamy is the exact opposite of a dick, and Boris probably texts pictures of his dick to random women.”

Shoutout to @taffydesu for creating this beautiful, amazing, adorable JeanMarco art that I can cuddle with now.
I am obsessed, so here you go, have a picture of my face because I am too excited about this. 😁♥️

for the hundred thousandth time

okay so i’m beginning to believe i was born asleep and still haven’t woken up, or still caught in a day dream where my name is the answer to all your security questions. okay. a thousand years of wondering and all i can come up with is that you fell in love with me at a picnic in my imagination. the lemonade we always talk about swimming in sugar and tiny handmade sandwiches from my kitchen, your favorite, extra pickle. don’t forget about the pickles. of course the clouds march in stomping out the sunshine, of course. it was dark and there was lightning so much lightning. don’t be scared just now darling don’t be scared. in the middle of the night we only talk about your version of the story. how i’d ask you to stay, asking you to tell me what’s real asking you with my hands asking you with maps, a country called please listen to me, you should know by now that it is an island too far to sail to according to you. i know i know, who dared name an ocean lonely when all the ships are sinking. we can go back we can turn around where the sky is the gentlest shade lavender, we can go back and have a conversation that has never happened before. when everything is the color of day old bruises i won’t let you down. i promise when i get home i will count every freckle every one. when i get home can we open one of those mason jars full of fresh air because i can’t breathe. i remember that day, although i pretend it was more recent than it was. you were there in a swell of green grass in a dress that makes me blush, and there i was blushing. i’m not sure how i made it out alive, skipping the part in the song where you, long gone come busting through a doorway, through the well air conditioned living room and and across the kitchen tile, to the refrigerator where just like in elementary school, my fourth grade heart wrote all your favorite things on flash cards in the blackest magic marker so i could memorize the things that made you happiest. and you turning around in slow motion to see my face, or where my face should be, the only expression i can make anymore, realizing that you realized that i only ever wanted to be something that made you happy. suddenly you’re tired, and i’m tired too, goodnight goodnight, i’m falling asleep because it’s the only thing that doesn’t burn. i’m falling asleep to go back again. everything glitches and i’m underneath your perfect teeth. you say “I would never hurt you” and i say “just like that?” and the layer starts over again, always back to the moment i asked you in my bravest of voices if i could hold your hand. you probably don’t remember that moment, or maybe you do but don’t particularly share the same sentiment over its importance. you see, i’m always fine until the part where i have to say it out loud, and then time stops. i have always wanted to tell you that something happened inside me that night and now i’m not the same me as i was before. so if you ever cross a bridge. if you ever get my voicemail, if you need me, i’ll be sketching up the dramatic parts in my head and they’ll happen just the way i imagined just you wait you wait. the last scene the very last one, the bottom layer, knee deep in mud knee deep in i told you so, you say “i would never hurt you” and instead of saying “just like that” i reach up to kiss you and the room evaporates. so if you want lemonade and bedtime stories, if i can make a believer out of you, if you want bucketfuls of november if you want grace if you want the courage it takes to ask for grace, you’re over the train tracks you’re almost home you’re almost there. what else can you say besides “okay pumpkin okay sweetheart, in my head everything was beautiful, the doorway now filled with people who send you birthday cards saying welcome back welcome home we’ve missed you, hello. hello. the time spent waiting, chorus of rain, i only invited you over so we could make perfect sense. i only gave my hands away because you didn’t want them anymore. and days later a man with a shark tooth necklace asked if i was okay and i lost it i just lost it. all the little red bricks with their little names carved into them, how they don’t feel comfortable under your feet, how there were hundreds of flowers but somehow we took a picture of the same one the very same one, and how we can’t talk about things like that anymore, how i was sitting on a bench and i didn’t hear you call my name, shaking hands on accident with your parents hello sir hello mam, your daughter is my favorite ghost.

An open note

When you ask me who my favorite artist is and when I respond with ‘Taylor Swift’ don’t say “Why do you like her? All she writes about is her ex boyfriends.” Why does it matter if she writes about them? I’m very sure that your fave does the exact same thing. Don’t call yourself my friend if you’re going to give me ridiculous reasons for me to not love Taylor.

Oh and I could go on about songs not about exes. Ever hear of Long Live or Ronan? Yeah, I bet not because you’re quick to hate on someone because of the picture the media paints.

anonymous asked:

What's your favorite thing to write about?

In general, I love writing about what I’m feeling. It’s simple yet complicated in a sense, and it helps me sort out everything. I love trying to put things that aren’t words into words. I’m terrible at writing about situations, but I can write about the feelings of the situation. (Things are about to get confusing) I’m not very good at being creative when it comes to painting a picture with my words, I’m much better at just stating exactly what I’m feeling in a poetic way. That probably isn’t too confusing, but in my head it is because there’s much more going into it. Hopefully this made sense…
