Ev's 'blog

A while ago I read an article in the Australian Sky and Telescope magazine showing the differences in city lights from space using photographs from the International Space Station. This is a NASA Youtube video of the same, there are some amazing differences where cities cross political boundaries for instance.

Currently, NASA can't send astronauts up to (or get them back from) the ISS themselves, but they are working on a new capsule for doing this. The first flight of this was a few days ago. There is an 'astronauts eye' video of the re-entry as well, which is quite amazing too.

Webpages with more information on these videos are here, for Cities at Night, and here, for the Orion re-entry video.

Introduction

So. Rather than leave everything to Facebook and all the anoyances that entails I have ditched my account and turned my old site into a blog. There are some rather old overviews of my past work, a few random pages on my interests and, by default, whatever random stuff I've felt like posting.
