the earth program


Hackers just helped NASA save a treasure trove of climate data from an uncertain future

  • Roughly 200 programmers congregated Saturday in the Doe Library at the University of California, Berkeley, to take part in a hackathon focusing on NASA’s earth sciences programs and the Department of Energy.
  • Wired reported the group of coders had the common goal of saving data that could be deleted or otherwise tucked away under Trump.
  • Using web-crawler scripts and patching together data sets, the hackers were able to successfully preserve 8,404 web pages onto the Internet Archive — a digital library with a plethora of screenshots from websites — and download 25GB of data from 101 public datasets. Read more (2/14/17 3:06 PM)

the Doctor smiled to himself - ‘It was sculpted by someone who knew you pretty well.’

Rose walked around the statue. ‘Is my bum really that -’

‘Yes,’ the Doctor interrupted testily. ‘This statue is accurate in every detail. Bum. Arms. Legs. Nose. Broken fingernail on your right hand.’

the Doctor checking Rose out checking to make sure this is really her body and not a cheap copy ;)

Apollo 9 Performs First Rendezvous & Re-Docking with LM Ascent Stage (7 March 1969) — The Lunar Module (LM) “Spider” ascent stage is photographed from the Command and Service Modules (CSM) on the fifth day of the Apollo 9 Earth-orbital mission. While astronaut David R. Scott, command module pilot, remained at the controls in the CSM “Gumdrop,” astronauts James A. McDivitt, Apollo 9 commander; and Russell L. Schweickart, lunar module pilot, checked out the “Spider.” The LM’s descent stage had already been jettisoned.


Five years ago, corporate said we had to start a recycling program for Earth Day, so Dwight took the lead on that, and introduced us to a very close friend of his, named Recyclops.
The next year, he really stepped things up. A year after that, Recyclops really began to take shape. Then tragedy struck Recyclops when his fictional planet was attacked by some other fictitious thing, I can’t remember. I think this was also the year that he renounced the Earth Day and vowed to destroy the planet he once loved.

I have learned two things today:

1. Not only does my cell phone’s predictive dictionary know the word “vewy”, it can correctly anticipate that a pair of vewys should be followed by a “careful”.

2. It does not, however, know the word “sponges”.

Who on Earth programmed this thing?


I made a little video for my last couple of months I spent down in Disney World. I’m so incredibly thankful for everyone I met while I was there & miss them all so so so much. I wish I could just go back already.
So enjoy my shenanigans! (Most of this is Magic Kingdom stuff because I spent a lot of time there, but Spaceship Earth - I worked there - and Fantasmic & Frozen Sing Along make an appearance too!)

Apollo 14 Re-Docks & Completes Trans-Earth Injection/TEI (7 February 1971) — The Apollo Command and Service Modules (CSM) are photographed against a black sky background from the Lunar Module (LM) above the moon. While astronauts Alan B. Shepard Jr., commander, and Edgar D. Mitchell, lunar module pilot, descended in the LM “Antares” to explore the Fra Mauro region of the moon, astronaut Stuart A. Roosa , command module pilot, remained with the CSM “Kitty Hawk” in lunar orbit.


Personal work/project : Earth 2.0

First design for a personal project. It’s a Heavy Unit for the Defense of the Colony .

With the discoveries of NASA, Humanity always eager for new horizons decides to create a new colony on a new planet: IRIS. This colony is the third of the N.E.P: New Earth Program. The objective is to prevent the problem of overpopulation and disappearance of primary resources of our Planet Mother and of course to extend Humanity in the universe.
