About

Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

Montage
This montage of New Horizons images shows Jupiter and its volcanic moon Io, and were taken during the spacecraft’s Jupiter flyby in early 2007. The image of Jupiter is an infrared color composite that highlights variations in the altitude of the Jovian cloud tops, with blue denoting high-altitude clouds and hazes, and red indicating deeper clouds. The prominent bluish-white oval is the Great Red Spot.
The image of Io is an approximately true-color composite and shows a major eruption in progress on the night side, at the northern volcano Tvashtar. Incandescent lava glows red beneath a volcanic plume, whose uppermost portions are illuminated by sunlight. The plume appears blue due to scattering of light by small particles within it.

Amazing video: Planets viewed from Earth as if they were at the distance of our moon (by 3kingAmazing)

Shame Saturn isn’t included. We’d be in one of rings!

My 41st birthday was a magical occasion. Just me, my wifey, my mum & one of my sisters. This astonishing view greeted us as we were about to head off for dinner, and on our return we all gazed at the milky way and saw a shooting star! This is going to be a great year :)

Alan Bean is the only artist to have set foot on the moon. I love his work. This one’s called “First Men”.

I’ve also found the best space-oriented blogs since joining Tumblr. Ah, this little geek has found a home :)

You have to visit this site and look at all of the amazing images and icons in the history of science. A grand tour!
(via What are some of the most important, iconic, and/or beautiful scientific images? - Quora)

From the sketches of da Vinci and Copernicus to Neil Armstrong’s lone footprint on the moons surface and Hubbles view of the pillars of creation, this is a fantastic collection.  Here are some of my favourites:





What are yours?

Meanwhile, in Mississippi…

“but will she make .5 past lightspeed?”

That’s one small step for a Stormtrooper action figure…

The Moon from Martin Bailey on Vimeo.

The Moon by Martin Bailey

The moon, as it moves across the frame. The camera was not panned at all. The movement comes entirely from the moon itself as it traverses the sky. Filmed with a Canon EF 600mm F4 lens, fitted with a 1.4X and a 2.0X Extender on a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV HD DSLR camera.
