The Photo Booth

Posted in Movies, Photography with tags , , , , , on May 23, 2016 by Aaron

Recently a friend of mine just launched a gif version of a photobooth. It looks like it would be a lot of fun! What attracts me the most to it is that you can play with it. Because it loops, you can try to do different things, instead of just making funny faces.

I saw this on reddit this morning and it seems playful in a similar way. Especially because of the man standing in the back.

 

 

 

The Horsehead Nebula

Posted in Space with tags , , on May 23, 2015 by Aaron

As a kid I took an after school astronomy thing in elementary school. I remember they blew up an inflatable planetarium that had a special projector pointing at the ceiling. They told us Greek myths while we all lay down on the floor looking up at the different constellations. Out of all of them, the one that I could usually find without any trouble was Orion.

Of all the gorgeous space pictures floating around, the Horsehead Nebula is one that people are usually familiar with. Until I saw this gif, I don’t think I ever thought about where a particular image came from in a specific point in space.

It was discovered by a Scottish woman who worked as a main for a Harvard professor in Boston after her husband left her. He apparently was frustrated with his male assistants and said that his maid could do a better job then them. He later hired her to do clerical work and during that time she discovered nebula, stars, and novae. One of them being the Horsehead Nebula in 1888.
