The Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) is a project funded by NASA, SkyCorp Inc, SpaceRef Interactive, Inc., and private individuals to digitize the original analog data tapes from the five Lunar Orbiter spacecraft that were sent to the Moon in 1966 and 1967.
For centuries the giant squid has been the stuff of legend, but now, for the first time ever, scientists have collected footage of a giant squid, (Architeuthis), in its natural habitat, thousands of feet below the ocean’s surface.
"All of us were so amazed at what it looked like," Edie Widder, a marine biologist who was part of the successful video making mission, told the Los Angeles Times. "It looked carved out of metal. And it would change from being silver to gold. It was just breathtaking."
Scientists encountered the squid in the North Pacific Ocean, near the Ogasawara archipelago ofJapan. They first saw the squid at a depth of 2,066 feet and followed it down to a depth of 2,952 feet before it swam down into the inky abyss, Agence France-Presse reports.
The squid caught on video is 9 feet long, but it is also missing its two longest tentacles. If those tentacles were still intact, the squid could have measured as much as 26 feet in length.
"This squid has an eye that is bigger than your head."
You and I will have to wait until Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. to see it as part of the Discovery Channel’s show “Monster Squid: The Giant is Real.”

Haven’t been this excited about a piece of art in a long time. Catch it at MOMA.
“Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, Christian Marclay’s The Clock is a cinematic tour de force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. Appropriated from the last 100 years of cinema’s rich history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often by displaying a watch or clock. The Clock incorporates scenes of everything from car chases and board rooms to emergency wards, bank heists, trysts, and high-noon shootouts.”
"This is Tim, I met him my first day on South Beach, Miami for Art Basel 2012. I spoke with Tim for a good twenty minutes and he eventually ignored my cameras and told me a little about himself. He is from Rhode Island, has lived in Miami for several years, and wanders all over South Beach. I love the photo because of the composition, the pose, the mood, the angle, the lines, and the tone. To me, all these elements come together perfectly." -Eduardo Enrique Silva
Fellow NYU grad and international artist Rosa Maria de los Heros & her friend Aileen Gavonel have started a bikini company, Musas de Yemanya and they are flying off the shelf.
Based in Lima, Peru (where it is currently summer) her innovative designs (less tan lines!) and popping color have us dreaming of warmer days and salty ocean waves.
We are planning a joint photo shoot currently, in time to get everyone excited for next bikini season!

"London-based creative duo Rob and Nick Carter have realized a set of images capturing explosions of color, entitled ‘paint pigment photograph series’. The playful visualizations are an example of the studio’s interest in fusing color, light, form and the discipline of photography, articulating this with fleecy bursts of color, ignited into a billow via daytime fireworks. the pieces, with a backdrop of a bright blue sky, appear suspended and native to their surroundings, mimicking the distinctive contours of a cloud anticipating a flooding maelstrom of technicolor rain.” - Designboom
