I miss seeing this guy more often. (at Saxon + Parole)
Good peeps. (at Cafe Henri)
I’m in good hands for my flight over to London.
Presumably a splinter group from the Planetary Society… #notreally (at Neptune Society)
Izu the lion. He was engaged in some, shall we say, Valentine’s Day activities for much of our time at the zoo. Here he is looking justifiably proud. #roarandsnore #latergram
We definitely recommend spending the night at a zoo like the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The animals are much more active at night and in the early morning than they are during normal zoo hours. #roarandsnore #latergram
Diana high fives a lion last night at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. #roarandsnore
A nice start to the Olympics for team USA!
I have as many goals as the entire Kings roster combined tonight. #LAKings #Lumbus (at STAPLES Center)
Shepard Back in Space! Remembering Apollo 14 as Commander Alan Shepard, CMP Stuart Roosa, and LMP Edgar Mitchell launched on their nine-day mission to Fra Mauro on January 31, 1971.
Shepard was the oldest U.S. astronaut when he made his trip aboard Apollo 14. He is the only astronaut from Project Mercury (the original Mercury Seven) to reach the Moon.
The crew experienced several difficulties during their flight to the moon as six attempts were required with docking to the LM before a “hard dock” was achieved. Prior to the PDI for the Antares landing, a short in the LM computer abort switch was discovered, which could have triggered an undesired abort during the LM’s descent. A second problem occurred as the LM radar altimeter failed to lock automatically onto the Moon’s surface, depriving the navigation computer of vital information on the vehicle altitude and groundspeed. After the astronauts cycled the landing radar breaker, the unit successfully acquired a signal near 18,000 feet again, just in the nick of time.
Commander Shepard then manually made a pin-point landing closer to its intended target than any of the other six Moon landing missions.
Shepard’s first words, after stepping onto the lunar surface were, "And it’s been a long way, but we’re here."
