∟Björk _ Homogenic (1997)
The music of Homogenic is very close to the music I heard as a child. It’s a very icelandic record, especially as far as rhythm is concerned. (…) The sounds, the rhythms, the emotions, they’ve always been inside my head. I put them down on Homogenic. I look at it as a document. And the title of the record actually indicates that the music comes more or less from one direction: straight from the heart, because home is where the heart is.
∟Tool_ Lateralus (2001)
The majority of the record is about re-communication, about understanding where you are in reference to where you’ve been and where you’re going. It’s the process of letting go of old baggage and the evaluation of your place.

New Horizons Zooms Past Neptune on 25th Anniversary of Voyager 2
25 years ago today Voyager 2 made the only close approach to Neptune, coming within 3,000 miles of the blue gas giant. At the time of the flyby, the spacecraft captured this incredible image of the planet’s southern hemisphere. Two dark spots are visible: an Earth-sized Great Dark Spot located on the far left, and Dark Spot 2 located near bottom. A bright cloud dubbed “Scooter” accompanies the Great Dark Spot. Recent computer simulations indicate that scooters are methane clouds that might commonly be found near dark spots.
In what one NASA official dubbed as a “cosmic coincidence”, the New Horizons spacecraft passed through Neptune’s orbit today on its way to its intended destination of Pluto. Launched in 2006, New Horizons is the fastest spacecraft ever launched and will be the first probe to reach Pluto. Little is known about the dwarf planet. It’s so dim and far away that the best photos by NASA’s powerful Hubble Space Telescope show Pluto as a blur of pixels. It is scheduled to arrive at Pluto on July 14, 2015 and many incredible discoveries await.
