This is the amazing design for NASA’s Star Trek-style space ship, the IXS Enterprise - The Washington Post

We could travel to new worlds in NASA's starship Enterprise. NASA announced in 2012 that it was working to build a "warp drive" that could enable "faster-than-light" travel. Two years later and the space agency hasn't built a spaceship capable of such speeds yet — but thanks to artist Mark Rademaker, we now know what one could look like. The result is the IXS Enterprise, a ship that shares similarities with both its science fiction Star Trek namesake, and NASA's real-world space shuttle.
Star Trek's warp drives aren't going to be the domain of science fiction for much longer. NASA may be on the cusp of one of the biggest breakthroughs in space travel since it first put a man on the moon. Late yesterday, it unveiled the design for a prototype ship capable of moving faster than the speed of light. - See more at: http://inventorspot.com/articles/move-over-star-trek-nasa-developing-fully-functional-warp-drive#sthash.YqO15sG9.dpuf

“Dr. Zhivago” ~1965 Omar Sharif & Julie Christie. My fave film
How the CIA secretly published Dr Zhivago - BBC World Service // Boris Pasternak's famous novel Doctor Zhivago remained unpublished in the USSR until 1988, because of its implicit criticism of the Soviet system. But for the same reason, the CIA wanted Soviets to read the book, and arranged the first-ever publication in Russian.

The Masters of Our Fate: Winston Churchill Addresses Congress (1942).

Portrait of #Winston #Churchill  This photo was taken by Yousuf Karsh, a Canadian photographer, when Winston Churchill came to Ottawa. This is claimed as the most reproduced photographic portrait in history. This also appears on the cover of Life magazine. The picture usually hangs on the staircase of Number 10. Take a virtual tour here: http://www.number10.gov.uk/history-and-tour/virtual-tour-of-number-10/
This is the photo that put photographer Yousuf Karsh on the map. At the time, Churchill was not in the mood to have his picture taken and Karsh was told he would only give him two minutes of his time. While Karsh set up the lights and camera, Churchill, as usual, smoked a cigar . Then, to Sir Winston's surprise, Karsh snatched the cigar away from him and took the shot. The result was the now famous portrait shown here. Some claim it is the greatest portrait photograph ever.

Carl Sagan (1934-1996) The legendary scientist and master communicator described himself as an agnostic, and his writings always emphasized appreciation of skepticism and naturalism, as opposed to supernaturalism. His views on theology are expressed in many of his writings, none more clearly than The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God. "Extraordinary claims require

"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." - Carl Sagan
When you're talking about Voyager, you have to do something most people simply cannot do: take the long view. #space, #carlsagan, #1977, #starwars
Carl Edward Sagan (1934 - 1996) an American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in the space and natural sciences. During his lifetime, he published more than 600 scientific papers and popular articles and was author, co-author, or editor of more than 20 books. In his works, he advocated skeptical inquiry and the scientific method. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). Sagan became world-famous for his popular science books and for the award-winning 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which he narrated and co-wrote. A book to accompany the program was also published. Sagan also wrote the novel Contact, the basis for the 1997 film of the same name. Sagan was associated with the American space program from its inception. From the 1950s onward, he worked as an advisor to NASA, where one of his duties included briefing the Apollo astronauts before their flights to the Moon. Sagan contributed to many of the robotic spacecraft missions that explored the solar system, arranging experiments on many of the expeditions. He conceived the idea of adding an unalterable and universal message on spacecraft destined to leave the solar system that could potentially be understood by any extraterrestrial intelligence that might find it. Sagan assembled the first physical message that was sent into space: a gold-anodized plaque, attached to the space probe Pioneer 10, launched in 1972. Pioneer 11, also carrying another copy of the plaque, was launched the following year. He continued to refine his designs; the most elaborate message he helped to develop and assemble was the Voyager Golden Record that was sent out with the Voyager space probes in 1977. Sagan often challenged the decisions to fund the Space Shuttle and Space Station at the expense of further robotic missions. Sagan taught a course on critical thinking at Cornell University until he died in 1996 from pneumonia, a few months after finding that he was in remission of myelodysplastic syndrome. Sagan's contributions were central to the discovery of the high surface temperatures of the Planet Venus. Mariner 2 confirmed his conclusions on the surface conditions of Venus in 1962. Sagan was among the first to hypothesize that Saturn's moon Titan might possess oceans of liquid compounds on its surface and that Jupiter's moon Europa might possess subsurface oceans of water. This would make Europa potentially habitable for life. Europa's subsurface ocean of water was later indirectly confirmed by the spacecraft Galileo. Sagan also helped solve the mystery of the reddish haze seen on Titan, revealing that it is composed of complex organic molecules constantly raining down onto the moon's surface. He is also the 1994 recipient of the Public Welfare Medal, the highest award of the National Academy of Sciences for "distinguished contributions in the application of science to the public welfare." He was denied membership in the Academy, reportedly because his media activities made him unpopular with many other scientists. Sagan was married three times—in 1957, to biologist Lynn Margulis, mother of Dorion Sagan and Jeremy Sagan; in 1968, to artist Linda Salzman, mother of Nick Sagan; and in 1981, to author Ann Druyan, mother of Alexandra Rachel (Sasha) Sagan and Samuel Democritus Sagan. His marriage to Druyan continued until his death in 1996. Isaac Asimov described Sagan as one of only two people he ever met whose intellect surpassed his own. The other, he claimed, was the computer scientist and artificial intelligence expert Marvin Minsky. The landing site of the unmanned Mars Pathfinder spacecraft was renamed the Carl Sagan Memorial Station on July 5, 1997.
