In the very first Indianapolis 500, Ray Harroun gave the automotive industry one of its greatest safety innovations when he rigged a mirror above the dashboard of his race car so he could see oncoming traffic. By doing so, he did not have to use a “riding mechanic,” which gave him an advantage in the race. Though he still needed a relief driver, Harroun was in the cockpit for the last part of the race and drove to a 1:43.00 margin of victory over Ralph Mulford. (IMS Photo)
Indy 500 baby!!!
I know nobody wants to think of this word and often we take risks thinking “it won’t happen to me”. I worked for the American Cancer Society for a while and was enlightened to some simple easy steps to prevent most of the cancers - especially skin cancer. Their motto at the time was “slip slap slop” in reference to hats, protective clothing, and sun screen (for adults and children!). Check out these warning signs:

Astronomy Picture of the Day

On February 18, astronomers were in for a celestial treat, Jupiter and the Moon danced with each other in the evening sky for the second time in a month. This type of event is known as the occultation of Jupiter. The large gas giant elegantly slipped by our closest friend – not particularly exciting to talk about, but it does have a certain type of special spark if you witness it.
To top it off, all four of the Galilean moons are visible as well. From left to right, we have Ganymede, Jupiter (the planet, obviously not one of the Galilean moons), Io, Callisto, and Europa. You can also clearly see the effect of “Earthshine” on the ‘dark’ half of the moon. This portion of the moon is lit by light reflected from Earth instead of being lit directly by the sun (like the bright half is).
