Tragedies of life

It’s one thing to retweet these. They’re great.

It’s another to deliberately crop off the artist’s credit line to try to make sure no one knows who really made them or where they’re from.

For the record, they’re by the excellent Benjamin “Bendouille” Dewey, and they’re from http://tragedyseries.tumblr.com

And you’re a turd, omgbuglen.

An empty spacesuit outfitted with a radio transmitter and filled with old clothes floats free from the International Space Station in this February 2006 photo. The spacesuit, dubbed SuitSat-1, was an old Russian Orlan spacesuit intentionally released by the crew to see if old spacesuits could be turned into useful satellites.

After two 90-minute orbits the suit’s transmitter became unexpectedly weak, and it finally burned up in the Earth’s atmosphere after a few weeks of orbiting the planet.

Orange Sun Sparking 

Our Sun has become quite a busy place. Taken only two weeks ago, the Sun was captured sporting numerous tumultuous regions including active sunspot regions AR 2036 near the image top and AR 2036 near the center. Only four years ago the Sun was emerging from an unusually quiet Solar Minimum that had lasted for years. The above image was recorded in a single color of light called Hydrogen Alpha, inverted, and false colored. Spicules cover much of the Sun’s face like a carpet. The gradual brightening towards the Sun’s edges is caused by increased absorption of relatively cool solar gas and called limb darkening. Just over the Sun’s edges, several filamentary prominences protrude, while prominences on the Sun’s face are seen as light streaks. Possibly the most visually interesting of all are the magnetically tangled active regions containing relatively cool sunspots, seen as white dots. Currently at Solar Maximum — the most active phase in its 11-year magnetic cycle, the Sun’s twisted magnetic field is creating numerous solar “sparks” which include eruptive solar prominences, coronal mass ejections, and flares which emit clouds of particles that may impact the Earth and cause auroras. One flare two years ago released such a torrent of charged particles into the Solar System that it might have disrupted satellites and compromised power grids had it struck planet Earth.

I’ve gotten a few notes from people wanting me to re-up the zip file containing the long out of print The Star Wars Iron On Transfer Book images from 1978 that I had originally uploaded to megaupload a year ago. 

The new link is http://depositfiles.com/files/fjyk2j3m6

Instructions below from my original post on how to best use these.

Go and make cool stuff!

Here’s a Christmas gift for you.

All 16 Star Wars iron on transfers taken from The Star Wars Iron On Transfer Book (Ballantine Books/1978).

Download the zip file with all 16 optimized images at <link redacted>   (if this doesn’t work or expires, shoot me a message and I’ll re-up.  I just tested it and it works fine).

Print the image you choose on the highest quality on special iron on paper (the Epson offering seems to get good reviews on amazon) and transfer to your t-shirt. Actual image size is 5 1/2 inches by 7 inches. 

Thanks for following me these past few months.
