LIFE has an amazing gallery of previously unreleased pictures taken at a Nevada A-Bomb test site in 1955. There is a cold beauty in these shots and an eerie atmosphere that make them emblematic of the Cold War era.
If bands were sandwiches, what would they look/taste like? Here’s a long list right in time for dinner.
I quite liked those ones:
Black Sabbath: Ham, stilton, LSD mustard, milled wheat bread.
Sex Pistols: Deep-fried Frank Sinatra LP, Russian mustard, spackle, tacks, stale rye bread.
Depeche Mode: Chicken breast, Swiss cheese, grilled suede, fried onions, mascara aioli, seeded baguette.
Pink Floyd: Amethyst-rubbed pork, asparagus jelly, moon-dried tomatoes, pumpernickel.
The Pogues: Gin-fed lamb, whiskey-marinated turkey, beer-braised pork shoulder, mustard, soda bread.
This picture shows the size of a sphere that would contain all of Earth’s water in comparison to the size of the Earth. The blue sphere sitting on the United States, reaching from about Salt Lake City, Utah to Topeka, Kansas, has a diameter of about 860 miles (about 1,385 kilometers) , with a volume of about 332,500,000 cubic miles (1,386,000,000 cubic kilometers). The sphere includes all the water in the oceans, seas, ice caps, lakes and rivers as well as groundwater, atmospheric water, and even the water in you, your dog, and your tomato plant.
It’s hard to realize what a 1,385km wide sphere represents. The International Space Station orbits at about 300km altitude. Amazing.
