“SS Exp 52 (Jun-Sep 2017) & a few from 50 & 51”

A really extensive map compendium of photos taken by individual members of the ISS crew. You can filter by specific astronauts, location, and it has a handy pathway guide for the August 21st Solar Eclipse.

I like everything about this.

“The majority of our books belong to what has been termed the Golden Age of Comics. This began primarily with newspaper reprints and then ‘went up, up and away’ with the introduction of Superman. Styles changed, new genres superseded old and then a new era dawned, the Silver Age of Comics, of which we also have many examples.”

A huge collection of “golden age” comics, online, for free.

I came for the weird horror comics of yore, like The Beyond or Forbidden Worlds, but wow they have a lot of content here.

A great data-centric synopsis of the current state of microbrew beer in the US.

With excellent data visualization techniques. I really liked this.

Links! Completed!

Where I am it’s a long weekend, so that makes this Friday extra good. Hopefully it is for you too.

Happy Friday!
