The Upside to Robots

Aether, books, films, sunken vessels, scientific illustrations, stars, hand drawn maps, UFOs, poetry, monsters, and things that tell time.

When you live in the south, sometimes you get critters moving in with you.  This one was captured and set free outside.  It’s like Wild Kingdom up in here.

Hans Glaser
Glaser is most-known for printing a broadsheet news article on April 14, 1561 describing a mass sighting of a celestial event or unidentified flying objects that occurred over Nuremberg on April 4 of the same year. The broadsheet, illustrated with a woodcut engraving and text, is preserved at the Zentralbibliothek Zürich in Zurich, Switzerland.[2] It describes objects of various shapes including crosses, spears, discs, a crescent, and a tubular object from which several smaller, round objects emerged and darted around the sky at dawn.[3]

Passenger Pigeons (Ectopistes migratorius)
This September is the 100th anniversary of the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon.In the nineteenth century, the Passenger Pigeon was one of the most common birds in the world.  There are records of flocks that stretched a mile long and contained billions of birds.  By the early twentieth century though, they were nearly extinct.  After European settlers arrived, much of their habitat was destroyed, and they were exploited as an inexpensive food source.  By the time it was understood that the Passenger Pigeon needed protection, it was too late.  Martha, the very last one died one hundred years ago, on September 1st 1914.  The loss of this beautiful bird gained public’s attention, which resulted in many new conservation and protection law and practices.
