It has been the strangest problem finding high enough resolution pictures to use as a wallpaper on the new iPad. Props to Colin for finding the perfect solution,  this nighttime view of New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and DC from the ISS. My lock screen is also the 2012 Blue Marble (the highest res picture of earth ever taken). Go earth!

On March 15 at 8:10am local time, Felix Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team successfully completed the project’s first manned test flight at Roswell, New Mexico. After the capsule was lifted by a helium balloon to an altitude of 21,818 metres, Baumgartner started a freefall that lasted 3 minutes and 33 seconds before reaching the optimum height of 2,405m to deploy his parachute and float safely back to Earth…

video here. Independent space flight is getting pretty impressive. (also you would have to give me A LOT of Red Bull to do this…)

Remember When House Republicans Voted Against Hurricane Forecast Funding?

mikehudack:

itsfullofstars:

In the US, we rely on the National Hurricane Center to forecast storms. The NHC is in turn a division of the National Weather Service, itself a part of the NOAA. Which, in the GOP’s 2011 budget bill, had its funding slashed by $1.2 billion from what was proposed in the president’s own budget bill, a bill that very notably included a $700 million increase over the previous year to cover needed upgrades to the satellites that gather the data that gets crunched in order to predict storms and weather in general.

Apparently weather forecasting is better left to the private sector.
