    NASA’s zero-gravity plane: How astronauts train for microgravity | Michelle Thaller

    ack, you had the question, how do we remove gravity from the anti-gravity chambers that astronauts train in? And you’ve probably seen films of astronauts in training, floating around in a closed chamber. And it does kind of look like we may have something that can actually shield against gravity. Well, for one thing, I really wish we did because just think about how useful that would be. Think about having, say, a construction site, and you can remove all of the gravity. You could actually move things around really easily. There’s so many applications for having some sort of anti-gravity device, but we don’t have one. There is no…

    Central American migrant caravan | IN 60 SECONDS

    What’s up with the caravan of Central Americans planning to cross the US border illegally? Tragically, it appears that desperate people have been made part of a dangerous stunt. El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras sit in a transit zone for illegal drugs heading to US consumers who abuse chemicals to escape there first-world problems. Central American governments are unwilling or unable to take on drug traffickers who are flush with cash and armed to the teeth. Vicious gangs murder, extort, and force young men into their ranks. Insecurity scares off investment and chokes off commerce. Every day, thousands of poor try to sneak across the US border, but the caravan…

    ABS: Sculpture Garden Touch Tour — Woodson Art Museum

    We are very fortunate at our museum that we have a sculpture garden and being in north-central wisconsin our weather is severe in the winter time and working with our curators we’ve come to the conclusion that we can access our sculpture garden by touch with visitors without the use of gloves. i approached are curator of collections to talk about the use of gloves having watched that disability resource video as well as in that resource guide we’re going to talk about the difference between the using vinyl gloves or the cotton gloves. And she looked at me and said Erin, what the wisconsin winters do to these sculptures…

    Camp: Notes on Fashion Gallery Views | Met Fashion

    Andrew Bolton: The exhibition is called Camp: Notes on Fashion, and it’s inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp” that, in a way, outlined the elements or characteristics of camp: irony, humor, parody, theatricalization, excess, extravagance, exaggeration. The first half of the exhibition does trace the origins of camp. The introduction is a section called “The Camp Beau Ideal.” It focuses on the figure of Antinous, Hadrian’s lover, who has been embraced in the queer culture by artists like Robert Mapplethorpe. Each gallery has a hero or heroine. So it starts off with Louis XIV and his brother Monsieur, a famous bisexual. I wanted to trace the etymological…

    Iris Van Herpen: Behind the Scenes at The Costume Institute Conservation Laboratory

    As a conservator, the reason I love plastics is that they’re kind of a ticking time bomb. We’re not quite sure how they’re going to age and they’re very challenging to preserve. We love to collect Iris Van Herpen’s work. She is one of the most innovative designers working today. For this dress, called “Moon,” Iris Van Herpen took a polyurethane rubber and mixed metal filings in it. She then poured it over a cotton dress, took magnets, pulsed it on top and bottom to create the craggy moonscape that you see. It’s actually quite soft and supple. From a preventive conservation perspective, we’re concerned that it will start to…

    Vincent van Gogh for Children: Biography for Kids – FreeSchool

    You’re watching FreeSchool! Today we’re going to learn about the famous artist, Vincent van Gogh. Born in 1853, Vincent van Gogh was a 19th century Dutch painter.
