Thanks guys, I foresee a long overdue audio journal entry concerning the UERM and Paradox. If these 2 gears sound half as good as what I've read about them I just might be easily set for the wrest of this year. I really have to start slowing down in the ear/headphone dept an be a little more selective in what I buy. It's time I concentrated on cementing the audio chain for these two gears and sat back an started enjoying the music more.

If you want to lose an entire evening, check out this site: http://falsesteps.wordpress.com/
It is a huge archive of blog posts about space vehicles and projects from all around the world that never made it. It is fascinating! One of them is the X-15B, which was a proposed follow-on to the X-15 that would achieve orbit. One of the biggest issues was the materials needed to withstand the high temps:

 

Thanks for the link.

 

I wonder if astronauts listen to music up there, to keep themselves entertained, maybe not.   I saw footage of a Russian playing chess up there once, against "Fritz", the only chess computer program which has been into outer space.

They certainly do:

BTW, I read another page that said the ipod's they take onboard have the lithium battery replaced with an alkaline battery pack. I'm guessing that when you run out of juice, you're tunes are over.

This is really bad, but I saw the word "parody" and saw the picture, and thought it was some kind of Jimmy Kimmel skit starring Guillermo...

It didn't show up there for me, but I did find it anyway!  Thanks!  smile.gif

It was the same here.  It was also a community center of sorts, in that parents liked to gather at Kmart in order to discipline their children, all in the same place, at the same time.

I like the 5th one down (mobile site) that shows the texture of the pupil.

The general iris layout between the blue and the brown eye is interesting too.

Those eyeball pics gave me a serious case of the heebie-jeebies...

Looks rather inhuman in a way doesn't it?

I've seen these before. Freaks me out so much. I like to think of eyes as crystalline structures from afar, up these up close pics tell me that they are muscle membranes with odd colour pigmentation, like some gaping maw.

 

It's pretty amazing but still, eew gross.

In some of the pics the lens structure looked sort of like fish scales or some sort of geometric cell structure - like looking at an onion slice under a middle school microscope.
