Stonehenge is one of the most famous archeological sites in the world. Located in Wiltshire, England, the site is made up of the remains of a ring of standing stones that are built within earthworks, constructed sometime between 3,000 BC to 2,000 BC.
Although it is still not clear why Stonehenge was built, one controversial theory by Boston University astronomer, Gerald Hawkins that emerged in the 1960s asserts that it was used by ancient astronomers as a way to mark the summer and winter solace, and also to predict solar and lunar eclipses. However, this theory has not been widely accepted, though it is interesting that Stonehenge does correspond to some astrological phenomena, which you can read about in depth in this pamphlet from the Royal Astronomical Society.

Instead of randomly surprising me with chocolates or flowers, my boyfriend bought me a National Geographic magazine titled “Beyond our Galaxy; Exploring the Vastness of Space” and i’m extremely happy about the fact that my boyfriend is awesome like that and that he is perfectly ok with dating a space nerd like me.
If you can, wrap your mind around Carl Sagan describing the fourth dimension.
I knew I’d find this in the fourth dimension tag.
It’s so difficult to grasp things like this! Carl Sagan dude…..such a historical mind.

Sorry, this is really messing me up today :(
Rest in peace, darling ❤️
A-12 #06927, visited on 1/12/2014, was a particularly interesting Blackbird. This bird was the only A-12 trainer built, and logged over twice the flight time than any other A-12s. Kelly Johnson, the team leader behind the creation of the Blackbird, actually flew in this plane. Most of the bird is unpainted, which made for some interesting shots.
I came to the California Science Center in Los Angeles, California to see this Habu and Space Shuttle Endeavor, which was quite an emotional experience. Moreover, this was the first Blackbird that I photographed with this project in mind. The top shot was taken with my iPhone 5s. The rest were shot with the Canon s110.
Because even Skylab had a montage.
