Welcome my Friday tribe…

And happy Memorial Day weekend to my American friends.

Let’s begin…

Apollo 11 CM

Apollo 11 CM

A 3D interactive model of the interior of the Apollo 11 Command Module.

“The Apollo 11 Command Module, “Columbia,” was the living quarters for the three-person crew during most of the first manned lunar landing mission in July 1969. On July 16, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin and Michael Collins were launched from Cape Kennedy atop a Saturn V rocket.”

You can also view the exterior.

Nicely done, by the Smithsonian Institution.

Created by Kvant3d.com [whose website is down as of this writing.] These are in extremely limited supply. As of right now their Etsy shop is out of stock. Each dragon fire lamp costs $63.59USD plus shipping.

These are obviously very popular. Well done.

Thibaud Poirier - Sacred Spaces: A series on modernist churches

“The modern church is a delicate institution; under siege from countering theologies, philosophies and the super speed of daily life, it must at once withstand the constant tempest of change while remaining anchored to tradition. The way the most long-standing institutions have done this is by finding a balance: deep roots that touch the core of humanity and yet a flexible reedlike ability to bend and sway with the tensions of modernity.”

There are some really beautiful, thoughtful constructions here.

Click a tile to turn it until the lines match up to form single lines, shapes, etc. Starts off simple…

Flash is required. (In 2019?!)
