It appears to be graduation day.
Last week an asteroid known as 4179 Toutatis passed by Earth at a relatively close distance, as far as these things go. As it tumbled in space, getting as near as 4.3 million miles or 18 times the distance from us to the moon, NASA’s 230-foot-wide Deep Space Network antenna in Goldstone, California, captured radar data that showed the giant rock’s spin. NASA scientists then collected that data into a short film, which we present to you as Tumbling Asteroid GIFs, for your enjoyment and/or terror.
Tumbling asteroid GIFs are perfect for Tumblr. Not much to be afraid of, though. This thing was pretty far from Earth. If you think about it, we’ve only been able to see these for a short time in our history, and if we have seen this many near-Earth asteroids in such a short time… well, they pass by Earth quite often. Emphasis on the “by Earth”.
It was 1949 when Pablo Picasso was introduced to Gjon Mili, a photographer who at the time worked for LIFE magazine – where he demonstrated some of his images of ice skaters with lights fixed to their skates, jumping in the dark. Fascinated from the results, the spanish artist then conceived a series of projected light drawings in a dark room with two separate cameras and a small electric light attempting to ‘paint’ his versions of centaurs, bulls and greek profiles.
A great inspiration for making trick photography and earning the Photographer Skill.
Someone might have a bit of an obsession…
My thought process is … When you first start dating someone at what point to you lay this out for them? Are you proud and show them on the first date… or do you wait till they are emotionally locked in then then say, “surprise?” If I was dating a woman with this many toys…. I might feel like I wouldn’t be able to keep up. If you were a woman and a MAN you were dating had this many toys… What would you be thinking?!?!
If this was the collection of a women I was dating. I would be her soulmate. She has fun, and knows how to take care of herself.
