Star Wars Inspired Facility

"While pursuing his master’s degree at the University of Texas, Arlington, Jason Mellard, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP, designed an aquatic research and housing facility to be located 50–100 miles offshore. Citing the Star Wars films, Santiago Calatrava, and offshore oil platforms as inspiration, Mellard’s structure was intended to be a prototype for studying marine and avian life out at sea."

The Moon

Pollution makes this wonderful orange color! "At full moon, the Moon is almost on the opposite site of the Earth to the Sun although not quite all lined up. That means that to get to the Moon, light from the Sun has to skim through our atmosphere. It has to go through a lot of atmosphere and, for the same reason that sunsets look reddy-orange, the light which gets to the Moon is slightly orange tinged; some of the blue part of the spectrum has been filtered out by Earth's atmosphere. [Edit 20/8/2005] The light has to come back, through a lot of atmosphere, to your eye. It is this last trip which will do the rest of the reddening. That way, the amount of reddening will depend on your local pollution levels."

Mascots

"Quatchi, Miga and Sumi. These are the names of the three critters who will meet and greet athletes, visitors, and fans in Vancouver and Whistler for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Each of the creatures is distinct and special – both in personality and in appearance. One is big, gentle and shy . . . one is small, mischievous and outgoing and one is a natural-born leader with a passion for protecting the environment."

Action Comics #859

"Part 2 of Superman and the Legion of Superheroes - The Earth, in the name of Superman, has taken a strict no-aliens stance and has rid the planet of all it can find. The Legion of Super-Heroes is a hunted bunch, those that are left, and are directionless. Cue Braniac-5, who reaches to the past for the one hero who can save them all, the Man of Steel, Superman…..But did I forget to mention that Earth’s sun has been changed from yellow to red?

Now a rag-tag collection of Legion members and a powerless Superman must somehow right this wrong, beginning with a search for the missing Braniac-5, who may hold the key to changing everything, while trying to evade a grown-up Absorbancy Boy (now called Earth-Man) and his Justice League."
