It isn’t going to be a rock 5 feet across. It will be a rock 500 feet across.  It won’t be the equivalent of 165 tons of TNT, but 165 megatons of TNT. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

I recently posted some color video of WWII Japanese trucks. (h/t Jeff “Inch High” Groves)

Today I came across this amazing build.  Even though it is in devil scale, it is just fantastic.

Glad to see Australia participating in Freedom of the Seas exercises in the South China Sea.  Australia and Japan are our two most important allies when it comes to naval cooperation, especially in opposing Chinese attempts to expand their territory into the South China Sea.

Nice photos of the Earth as the ESA/JAXA joint mission to Mercury flies by.  JAXA is really doing a lot in the non-manned space arena. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
