Never mind you superstitious types – you’ll feel pretty lucky to have seen what I have in store for you this week. We’ll take a tour of the international space station, learn about some amazing photography, and more. Commence!
1. Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory (International Space Station)
It is so damn cool to see HD footage like this from the ISS. Just imagine what it must be like to live up there. Also, this video was shot in space.
2. 30 Years of BAD Pictures – Bruce Dale
Meanwhile, back on Earth: Bruce Dale, a photographer for National Geographic, has taken some incredible photos.
3. The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck
Speaks for itself. Neat.
Thanks for checking out this week’s picks. Ta!
Welcome to volume three of my weekly selection of hand-picked videos for your viewing enjoyment. This week, we’ll gain some cosmic perspective, learn what the “Q” in Q-tips stands for, and then we’ll stand and testify. Onward:
This one is in HD, so full-screen it. Absolutely fascinating. Someday, I hope I’ll get the chance to look at Earth from space, too.
2. 56 Acronyms and Initialisms – Mental Floss
This is a well-delivered video full of useless but interesting information. Funny!
3. Rage Against The Machine – Live in London 2010 (Full Concert)
If you don’t stay for the whole concert, at least watch the story at the beginning. Awesome! Power to the people.
That’s it for this week. Thanks for watching!
