Vera Rubin [#Inktober 2016][05/31]


Vera Rubin, Astronomer.

She went on to confirm the existence of dark matter — one of the most important milestones in the history of understanding space — by proving beyond doubt that galaxies spin faster than Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation dictates they should.


As of 2016, she still hasn’t been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for her accomplishments.

“He saw the danger, willed the act; but the arm was too heavy. It seemed burdened with a hundredweight of lead. It would not lift itself, and he strove to lift it with his soul. Then the gloved fist landed home.”

– Jack London, “Piece of Steak”

Star Trek

I’ve been rewatching Star Trek: The Original Series lately. Lots of stuff I don’t remember, many new lessons to learn.

Random faces


Hunt for the Wilderpeople

I want to see this movie badly. Based on the off-beat Wild Pork And Watercress by Barry Crump. The soundtrack is great, too.


Something something post-apocalypse


Horned Toad and the Giants




Why Oscar Pistorius? Well, I wanted to do a quick portrait and a story came up about him on my Google News page with a decent photo. I’m learning about Kyle Webster’s oil brushes for Photoshop.
