In a constantly expanding universe, what would the end look like? As the universe expands, it expands faster — faster than the speed of light.

You've probably never heard of R. Stevie Moore. But based on the sheer amount of his recordings, you probably should have. Moore has made over 400 records and was a pioneer of the lo-fi recording aesthetic. With a 4,000 song catalog, it would be hard to listen to everything Moore has done.
For those that grew up in late '70s and '80s, the graphic designs of NASA are some of the most memorable of the period, appearing on everything from hats to the Space Shuttle. This reprinting of the NASA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this outstanding identity system, which was used from 1975 to 1992. Recreated for public use for the first time from the personal copies of the original designers, Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn, it covers the logo, placement, color schemes, and other design standards that helped capture the imagination of a generation and make the American space agency a lasting, iconic part of our legacy of exploration. Included are scans of Danne's personal copy of the original manual, a forward from Danne, an essay by Christopher Bonanos, reproductions of the original NASA 35mm slide presentation, and scans of the 'Managers Guide', a follow up booklet distributed by NASA. Each copy is individually wrapped in a foil static shield, adding even more nostalgic rocket-age flair to this iconic design reference.

Google celebrates French illusionist and film director Georges Méliès with their latest Doodle. A cinematic pioneer, Méliès was influential in the development of movie special effects.
