The photographs & knowledge gained might make a difference eventually, but the technology they needed to get the telescope launched and in position definitely will. Things you use every day, such as GPS, infrared thermometers, cordless tools, … it is an incredibly long list of items that we already have that were developed or improved from the space program. And the Webb telescope required new creative solutions that will also end up benefiting us. Then you have the photographs that people can use for whatever use they want, which might not impact you but some artists benefit from those.
The fans want games won, and this would win games (and they could mix in home runs in between strategically directed hits). It amazes me that the batters don’t hit for the gaps. Either the batters don’t have enough talent, or the coaches don’t.
This is like 3 different conversations going on at once; they just happen to overlap.
My favorite is the drill with the whisk attached.
We used to be able to enlarge the strips by clicking on them, but they took that feature away a couple of years ago. I definitely miss that feature!
Condolences. Sophie was a wonderful inspiration as well as part of your family. Thank you for letting her be part of our family as well.
Similar story: one time while visiting a big city (New York City, in this case) I made the mistake of giving a small piece of my sandwich to a pigeon. Next thing I knew, the pigeon flew up and literally stood ON THE SANDWICH IN MY HAND to eat more easily. It was a rude introduction to city pigeons.
Hopefully other athletes – and other people – will take Enes Kanter Freedom’s example.
I love the Big Blue Bug! We drive by that section of road sometimes, and whenever we do I always excitedly look for it (visible from the highway).
