The moments of totality during an eclipse are something rare and special for anyone who gets to experience it. The situation is very analogous to what happens during totality between the corona and the new Moon.

Humanity has been learning astrophysics’ hard lessons for tens of thousands of years: From first being flummoxed by eclipses of the Sun and Moon to the inexplicable movements of the celestial sphere. But despite the mind-boggling equations, a few basic truths can be gleaned from the often cryptic realm of astrophysics.

Hundreds of miles above the Earth's surface, it was time for the crew to ditch the third stage of the Saturn V rocket and reconfigure the command and lunar modules for the rest of the trip.

If the separation and docking did not work, we would return to Earth.

Ever since the massive drop-off of Under the Dome’s second season, summer’s have been hard on the ratings of CBS. However, since Zoo is surviving on the power of non-linear programming (the show didn’t even cross 3 million viewers in its season premiere this year [which is very low for a CBS show]), it appears more and more the eye is starting to use the summer to air some unconventional fan-favorites.

That Amazon is a large company is true, that it continues to grow is also true. Amazon treated the book industry the same way companies like Walmart once treated the territories into which they expanded: Use a war chest of capital to undercut prices, put competitors out of business, become the sole employer in the community, turn employees into part-time shift workers, lobby for deregulation, and effectively extract all the value from a given region before closing up shop and moving to the next one.

You might have the greatest product on earth, but if your potential customers don’t know they need it, they won’t know they have to buy it — let alone buy it from you. This may seem obvious, but it’s actually an important concept to pause and focus on, because it affects everything from understanding who your buyer really is and who the competition are to how you set the buying criteria and frame the problem your product solves for customers.

Designers and builders continue to develop expedition yachts like the 269-foot-long VARD 1-08 KILKEA for one simple reason: demand. And the demand is there because there is a growing class of wealthy owners that want yachts that are capable of going any place on Earth—in comfort.

With the end of the space shuttle program and the planned decommissioning of the International Space Station on the horizon, NASA is strongly debating what its next steps for human spaceflight will be.

NASA is the world's leading space agency, and has been the undisputed leader in space exploration for nearly five decades.

Albert Einstein described the origin of the Earth's magnetic field as one of the most important, yet unsolved, mysteries of the planet. It´s this constant flowing electric current that in the end generates the magnetic field.

Earth's crust is chemically quite different to earth's interior, characterized by an abundance of relatively light elements, like silicon, oxygen and aluminum. Early models of earth's formation explained this shell structure with differentiation from a global magma ocean.

The white Marshall script logo on guitar amplifiers behind some of the world’s greatest rock-and-roll bands is probably one of the best-known logos, alongside the likes of Apple and Coca-Cola. Having such a ubiquitous marque is very valuable and the Marshall Amplifier Company has leveraged its brand by licensing it to a headphone manufacturer to produce a range of headphones that will appeal to music fans who want great audio quality as well as that iconic branding.
