Inching ahead on their quest for what they call Earth 2.0, astronomers from NASA’s Kepler planet-hunting spacecraft announced on Thursday that they had found what might be one of the closest analogues to our own world yet.
It is a planet a little more than one and a half times as big in radius asEarth. Known as Kepler 452b, it circles a sunlike star in an orbit that takes 385 days, just slightly longer than our own year, putting it firmly in the “Goldilocks” habitable zone where the temperatures are lukewarm and suitable for liquid water on the surface — … [Continue reading...]
Philae (/ˈfaɪli/ or /ˈfiːleɪ/) is a robotic European Space Agency lander that accompanied the Rosetta spacecraft until its designated landing on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko (67P), more than ten years after departing Earth. On 12 November 2014, the lander achieved the first-ever controlled touchdown on a comet nucleus. Its instruments are expected to obtain the first images from a comet's surface and make the first in situ analysis to determine its composition. Philae is tracked and operated from the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) at Darmstadt, Germany.
The lander is named after Philae Island in the Nile, where an obelisk was found and used, along with the Rosetta Stone, to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics.

My work is a play between the conscious and the subconscious mind. My objective is to achieve a space that is intuitively balanced in light, color and motion. One that speaks to our strength, vulnerability, and our awakening within. I am fascinated with exploring the contrasts in my paintings, the transparent versus the opaque, flatness versus density, big open, loose marks versus stillness. All these disparate and yet harmonious elements together create light and reflection on the Plexiglass surface.
Because I paint in reverse on Plexiglass, there is always an element of surprise. I work back and … [Continue reading...]
At only 16 years old, a junior, in high school, it was on December 11, 2008 when Amanda Suzanne Brownell tried to take her life in a bathroom at Del Mar High School in San Jose, California.

Amanda, suffered severe brain damage, unable to speak or care for herself.
