See this guy? This is astronaut Ron McNair, and he was awesome.
In 1959, when he was nine-years-old, he single-handedly desegregated a South Carolina library by going in, picking some books, trying to check them out, and refusing to leave until he could take the books with him.
He went on to be a physicist and became the second African American in space when he flew on STS-41-B aboard Challenger in 1984.
When he was selected for STS-51-L, which was to be his second mission, a special piece of music was composed for him to play on his saxophone for what would have been the first original piece of music recorded in space.
McNair tragically died in 1986 when the shuttle disintegrated seconds after lift-off, claiming the lives of all seven members of the Challenger

cute date ideas:

- go to the zoo to look at the birds
- go shopping and buy shirts with birds on them
The VLT Survey Telescope (VST) at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile has captured this richly detailed new image of the Lagoon Nebula.
This giant cloud of gas and dust is creating intensely bright young stars, and is home to young stellar clusters. This image is a tiny part of just one of eleven public surveys of the sky now in progress using ESO telescopes. Together these are providing a vast legacy of publicly available data for the global astronomical community.
This image shows the core region of the Rho Ophiuchi Complex, centered around the prominent blue reflection nebula IC 4603.
This is one of the nearest star forming regions and the intricacies of the dense interstellar dust clouds in the area provides a spectacular display of light and colours.
The bright star is 7.9 magnitude SAO184376 which is the main source of light for the blue reflection nebula. The contrasting red areas towards the top are primarily due to reflected light from the hearby red giant star Antares, which lies outside the field of view. The entire area is also littered with hundreds of dim reddish stars, which are typically very young T Tauri stars.

Découpage Easter Eggs
An easy, hassle-free way to decorate Easter eggs! Use any napkins with fun designs or patterns.
- Hard boiled eggs
- Egg white, lightly beaten
- Pastry brush
- Open up the napkin and separate the printed layer from the white layers.
- Brush your egg with egg whites and place your napkin on the egg. Gently smooth it out, until it covers the entire egg. Brush over the napkin with egg whites.
- Cut off any extra napkin and brush down the edges. Lay the egg on a paper towel to dry.
