Exploration Flight Test-1 Orion Animation

This animation depicts the proposed test flight of the Orion spacecraft in 2014.

During the test, which is called Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1), Orion will launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla., perform two orbits, reaching an altitude higher than any achieved by a spacecraft intended for human use since 1973, and then will re-enter and land in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of the United States.

Jacqueline Mannering – Raining

She hails from Blackheath, England and is only 19 years old. She is also a self-taught guitarist who is a southpaw that plays right-handed.

From Berry M:

If you haven’t heard of her, don’t worry, it’s probably just because you haven’t been looking in the right places, and perhaps you’ve never witnessed the art of Guitar Shredding!

Jacqueline, from East London, posted her first guitar playing video – a solo version of the classical/rock standard, ‘Canon Rock’ – in 2006 when she was just 14.

The sight of such a young girl playing the guitar with such speed and style immediately caught the imagination of the online community and, before long Jacqueline’s video had picked up nearly half a million views.

The success of this first video led to features in lots more online charts and Jacqueline posted more videos on YouTube featuring her solo guitar playing – mostly recorded at home with a simple webcam.

NASA makes their own rain clouds

NASA Barges at Michoud

Assembly Facility:

Aerial view of NASA Dock at Michoud Assembly Facility with four barges, left to right, Paleamon, Promise, Poseidon and Orion. The barges ferried Saturn IB and Saturn V stages between the Marshall Space Center; the Michoud Assembly Facility; the Mississippi Test Facility, now Stennis Space Center; and the Kennedy Space Center.

From the test fire of the rocket engines at NASA 125,000 acres facility in Mississippi the results is a huge cloud of hydrogen and oxygen which causes it to rain!
