Assorted Links and Housecleaning

  • A while back I mentioned a size comparison for the solar system.  Here is a neat utility that goes from the super small (strings) to super large (estimated universe), with a bunch of cool references (T-Rex, all people stacked on top of each other, etc.).  The really cool thing is that it was created by a seventh grader!
  • After a slight delay,  the SpaceX rocket launched and is real close to docking with the International Space Station.  I’m glad my initial excitement has been rewarded.  Robots unite!

  • In addition, the Mars Rover is back fired up and running.  It is already sending back cool pictures of Mars.  I dig how this picture of the horizon, also has a “self-portrait” of the rover’s shadow.  Robots unite!
