Announcing my 6th vector drawing of the year: "Grapefruit".  And with it, I think I have enough to justify compiling all of them into one page.  (I'll continue announcing new images here, though.)

Status report on two space projects: New Horizons has sent all its data from its recent Jupiter fly-by (mission accomplished); and scientists are still interpreting the data we got from the Huygens probe that landed on Titan 2 1/2 years ago.
James, my roommate, has a weblog documenting his Master's thesis (Architecture) in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Archives start here:

His thesis involved the use of 40' shipping containers as the basis for utilitarian structures:
The building block for the conceptual basis of the thesis, it has been called many things in the history since its inception. At its most basic, it is 20’ or 40’ x 8.5’ x 8’ and comprised of aluminum or steel usually containing a wooden decking. At its most detailed it is the single most responsible reason for the global economy as we know it today.

The question that this thesis will continue to pose is “what else can it be”? This includes the re-engineering of the shipping container to include a possible second life of housing or infrastructure. The next question that gets asked is “why a shipping container”? Perhaps a better question is “why not a shipping container?” but I wanted to investigate why someone would view something of a more traditional character in a more positive light.

What can you do with a pre-manufactured house that you can’t do with a shipping container?

If you see James around, give him a high-five.  He's a remarkable guy, with a remarkable vision.

"Clearly we need a much bigger telescope to go back much further in time to see the very birth of the Universe," said Edward Weiler, director of Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Centre.

Works for me.  Image at bottom - this is one of the more odd looking things we've planned on sending into space.
