The Challenger accident is an important part of our history; a tragic reminder that space exploration is risky and should never be trivialized. NASA works every day to honor the legacy of our fallen astronauts as we carry out our mission to reach for new heights and explore the universe.
Lauren B. Worley, NASA’s press secretary • In response to a new single from Beyonce that features bits of audio recorded in the moments after the space shuttle Challenger exploded. The singer has come under fire from several family members of the Challenger crew as well, though she’s said that the song ‘XO’ was included as a tribute to those lost back in 1986. source

Gibson Guitar factory, Memphis Tennessee

It’s a shame they don’t allow photography on the factory floor. There is so many cool things to see in there.

Also recommend checking out the Moog factory in Asheville, North Carolina, which does allow for such photography.

Don’t like the way this sounds? Deal with it. This is Lou’s day.

EDIT: We request that you turn this up full blast and share Lou’s work with your neighbors, because that’s how Lou would have wanted it.

Bob Dylan probably still fits in that jacket today.

Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize. To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.

White House spokesman Jay Carney • Responding to questions about a newly released Jay-Z track which seems to suggest that Hov and Beyonce got permission from the White House to travel to Cuba last week. When pressed on the matter, Carney once again denied that President Obama ever spoke with Mr. and Mrs. Knowles-Carter about their trip, saying that Open Letter “is only a song.” source

Collection of Beatles color photos nets more than £25,000 at auction

  • £27,140 was the winning bid for a collection of color photos from The Beatles’ first U.S. tour auctioned last Friday in Stockport, Chesire, UK. While there are countless black-and-white photos from the group’s first trek across America, color photographs from the first tour are apparently rare, making the collection sold on Friday quite the noteworthy offering. Still, we imagine the seller was both shocked and excited to see the final winning bid, considering the photos were originally expected to net ten to fifteen thousand British pounds. source
