Why Is No One Interested in Vagina Size? It’s no secret: We are obsessed with penis and testicle size. Lately, we’re especially fond of evolutionary explanations for why penises and testicles are as large as they are, and why they’re shaped the way they’re shaped. It’s an obsession that extends from the ivory towers of academia on down. You’ve probably seen the articles by now. They follow a similar pattern in which penis size — often girth, rather than length — is an arms race in which the biggest or most innovatively shaped penis wins the evolutionary prize of passing on its owner’s genes to the next generation. A favorite explanation for the big phallus is female mate choice — that females selectively make babies with males who have larger and, presumably, more pleasurable semen-delivery devices.

SkyServer DR7 Tools for Visual Exploration The visual exploration tools built for the SkyServer make it easy to visualize and explore detailed astronomical data in regions of the sky covered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. One can specify regions of interest by central position and size. An underlying web service then combines the relevant images to form a JPEG mosaic* at the requested wide range of resolutions. www.theworkathomewoman By Holly Reisem Hanna Where has this school year gone?!

Hubble's Hidden Treasures 2012 Since 1990, Hubble has made more than a million observations. We feature many of these on spacetelescope.org, and the most stunning are in our Top 100 gallery and iPad app. But there are thousands of pictures in Hubble’s science archive that have only been seen by a few scientists. We call these images Hubble’s hidden treasures — stunning images of astronomical phenomena that have never been seen and enjoyed by the public. Every week, we search the archive for hidden treasures, process the scientific data into attractive images and publish them as the Hubble Picture of the Week.

Apollo 11-17 First man on the Moon - Apollo Moon Landings - QTVR photos from panoramas.dk Less known is that during all the missions they made image sequences which with today's computer technics can be stitched together into 360o interactive panoramas giving you the possibility to view the moon almost as you were there. Many of these panoramas have been published before but in low resolution and displayed in small sizes. Film used on the Moon was a modified Kodak Ectachrome 160. During the last years (2000-2005) the original films have been re-scanned in high resolution and the Apollo 11 images were released the week before the 35 year anniversary.
