BATGIRL #35 cover, 2014. I am taking over Batgirl starting in October! I’m co-writing with my friend Brenden Fletcher, doing covers and layouts for the amazing Babs Tarr, who will do finished art, and colours by the equally amazing Jordie Bellaire. New tone, new aesthetic, new costume, new everything. Really excited.
The primary mission of Voyager was the exploration of Jupiter and Saturn. After making a string of discoveries there — such as active volcanoes on Jupiter’s moon Io and intricacies of Saturn’s rings — the mission was extended. Voyager 2 went on to explore Uranus and Neptune, and is still the only spacecraft to have visited those outer planets. The adventurers’ current mission, the Voyager Interstellar Mission (VIM), will explore the outermost edge of the Sun’s domain. And beyond.
The Voyager 1 & 2 spacecrafts will be the third and fourth human spacecrafts to fly beyond all the planets in our solar system. Pioneers 10 and 11 preceded Voyager in outstripping the gravitational attraction of the Sun but on February 17, 1998, Voyager 1 passed Pioneer 10 to become the most distant human-made object in space.
As of June 8, 2014 Voyager 1 is 19 BILLION km away from Earth while Voyager 2 is 15.6 BILLION km away
Both Voyager spacecrafts carry a greeting to any form of life, should that be encountered. The message is carried by a phonograph record - a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth. The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University. Dr. Sagan and his associates assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds.
Voyager 1 is speeding along at about 57,600 kph (35,790 mph) — fast enough to travel from the Earth to the sun three and a half times in one year.
NASA’s Voyager 1 became humankind’s most distant spacecraft on Aug. 25, 2012 when scientists believe it entered interstellar space, or the space between stars. Much of interstellar space is actually inside our solar system. It will take about 300 years for Voyager 1 to reach the inner edge of the Oort Cloud and possibly about 30,000 years to fly beyond it.
Alpha Centauri is currently the closest star to our solar system. But, in 40,000 years, Voyager 1 will be closer to the star AC +79 3888 than to our own sun. AC +79 3888 is actually traveling faster toward Voyager 1 than the spacecraft is traveling toward it.
Barring any serious spacecraft subsystem failures, the Voyagers may survive until the early twenty-first century (~ 2025), when diminishing power and hydrazine levels will prevent further operation.
Dynamo, an English magician, went around London over the weekend, “levitating” next to this bus. He hasn’t revealed how he accomplished this trick.
dude dont forget this guy walked on water
he casually strolled down the side of a building, LEVITATED IN FRONT OF CHRIST THE REDEEMER IN RIO and predicted football scores resulting in a large win on a bet WHICH HE THEN GAVE TO THE TEENAGE CANCER TRUST. Dynamo is amazing.
he’s finally getting notes!!!!
I love this man so much
fucking dynamo fucking sold his fucking soul to fucking Crowley
Fucking explain to me how else he could fucking melt glass with his bare fucking hands
This is that superhero nobody believes is real under the guise of being a magician, oh my god he’s a deity.
this is the shit drop out students from Hogwarts do
Allow me to kill allllll your buzzes. The right arm is fake. It’s really the exposed part of a harness that is fitted underneath his clothes. His real right arm is in his shirt. Bam! No magic. Just broken dreams.
The out-of-this-world Vine is a 6 second time-lapse showing a single Earth orbit as seen from the International Space Station. An orbit which takes the ISS approximately 90 minutes to complete. In this Vine the ISS is flying parallel to Earth’s terminator line, which separates day from night.
