Apnea in suspense
These photos were taken on March 27, 2012 when NASA Launched 5 rockets in 5 minutes.
NASA successfully launched five suborbital sounding rockets this morning from its Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia as part of a study of the upper level jet stream. The first rocket was launched at 4:58 a.m. EDT and each subsequent rocket was launched 80 seconds apart. Each rocket released a chemical tracer that created milky, white clouds at the edge of space. Tracking the way the clouds move can help scientists understand the movement of the winds some 65 miles up in the sky, which in turn will help create better models of the electromagnetic regions of space that can damage man-made satellites and disrupt communications systems. The launches and clouds were reported to be seen from as far south as Wilmington, N.C.; west to Charlestown, W. Va.; and north to Buffalo, N.Y.

… Inside/Outside Tree , by Sou Fujimoto Architects
“The structure consists of polygonal sheets of acrylic bound together by cable ties. Its transparency allows us to view the ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ at the same time, while the abstract tree form resembles low-resolution computer graphics.
The interior surface of the hollow ‘tree’ is continuous with the exterior surface of the cube form that surrounds it. This allows us to stand outside the cube and inhabit the same space as the tree’s interior, and vice versa.
Another theme that can be seen in the structure is the tension that can exist in architecture between natural, organic forms and man-made, digitally fabricated interventions. Commonplace cable ties emphasise the presence of the hand-crafted and the everyday.”
