pilgrimage center for both Egyptians and the Nubians. The later Egyptians,
Greeks (Ptolemaic dynasty) and even Romans furnished their fair share of
architectural features – which became the magnificent ancient Egyptian
island temple complex of Philae.
Read the article, if you can stand the ads! At the end there's a 13 minute
video, a guided tour of Philae, "courtesy of traveler Igor Tochilnikov."

Nancy Grace Roman, 'Mother Of Hubble' Space Telescope, Has Died, At Age 93

This is an NPR article and obituary. "Roman was one of the first female executives at NASA,
where she served as the agency's first chief of astronomy. Known as the "Mother of Hubble,"
for her role in making the Hubble Space Telescope a reality, Roman worked at NASA for nearly
two decades." She convinced NASA that a telescope out in space would be a great advance.
"In the Lego set, her figurine stands next to a miniature Hubble Space Telescope — the instrument
that brought the world dazzling images of the stars she had loved so well as a child."

How a long-forgotten virus could help us solve the antibiotics crisis by Alexander Belcredi
Viruses have a bad reputation -- but some of them could one day save your life, says
biotech entrepreneur Alexander Belcredi. In this fascinating talk, he introduces us to phages,
naturally-occurring viruses that hunt and kill harmful bacteria with deadly precision, and shows
how these once-forgotten organisms could provide new hope against the growing threat of
antibiotic-resistant superbugs. from TED-ED

Aspinwall Fuller, age 13, served as a Powder Monkey
on board USS New Hampshire during the Civil War.
Here he is posing in front of a 100-pound Parrot gun.
These guns were muzzle-loaders that shot 100 pound
(45 kilogram) shells. Powder monkeys hauled powder
and shells up from magazines belowdecks to feed
the guns. Gunpowder and some kinds of ammunition
were stored in magazines deep in the ship. These
were fireproof sealed chambers to keep powder safe.
New Hampshire was a blockade ship sent to rebel ports
like Charleston, Wilmington, Savannah, Mobile, and
Galveston to stop smugglers, AKA blockade runners,
from sneaking into rebel ports. New Hampshire had
four 100 pound guns and plenty of smaller guns to
scare or sink blockade runners.
One ship that got caught had 10,000 rifles on board.
If a blockade runner made it, he could sell his cargo
for a great profit (profit = your pay - expenses).
Blockade runners carried anything and eveything,
guns and ammo, cannon, fancy dresses, perfume,
jewelry, morphine and other meds for hospitals.
On the way back they took out shiploads of cotton
or tobacco. One or two trips and the ship's master
was very rich. Or else very dead, or rotting in a
Yankee prison.

Out of Sight

"This cute little student film, a graduation project by Ya-ting Yu with classmates Yeh Ya-hsuan and
Chung Ling from the National Taiwan University of Arts, owes a lot to Miyazaki. But they’ve picked
up the right ideas from the Master and the finished film, Out Of Sight, is loaded with imagination and heart."
