Henry Smolinski was an engineer who left his job to start a company that would bring a flying car to market. In 1973, the company built its first two prototypes made by fusing the rear end of a Cessna Skymaster airplane with a Ford Pinto. Smolinski was set to begin production for the retail market, but on Sept. 11, 1973, he went on a test flight with pilot Harold Blake and was killed, along with Blake, when a wing strut detached from the car.7 inventors killed by their inventions

Slate: The Trayvon Martin Tweets [Twitter]

Ugh. In which his tweets reflect a pretty lame 17 year old guy but to all his detractors, THAT IS BESIDES THE POINT.

Warning - More analysis than fact coming up: 
The Slate article above says his tweets are “really, really banal.” Having looked through a handful of them, I’m inclined to agree with Slate. 
You’ll find tweets from a kid that wanted to increase his follow count and refused to write with proper grammar and sentence structure. And you’ll see the occasional flirt with a girl. Trayvon doesn’t come off as the innocent kid his parents and his community tries to portray him as, but he also doesn’t come off as a violent, drug-addicted teenager that some are suggesting based on new reports that surfaced on Monday. He just comes off as your normal, average kid.
There’s still a lot to this story that isn’t known. Nobody knows for certain what happened on February 26th. Most people who have a strong opinion one way or another pieced it together based on their own believe and emotion, not the facts. And the facts of this case may never be concretely known — or, once they are known, may never be fully believed thanks to the environment of distrust surrounding local law enforcement that did more damage than good through incompetence in the beginning of the investigation.
But one thing’s for certain: There are no answers in Trayvon’s tweets. Just reflections of a normal kid.

If mankind decides to colonize Mars, Le Petit Prince would be a good partner to bring along. This robotic greenhouse concept is designed to help the population of Mars by protecting plants and scavenging for nutrients. Le Petit Prince carries a plant inside its glass container and provides it with everything it needs to flourish on the red planet. The greenhouse robot is designed to learn the optimal process of searching for nutrients, and it can send reports to fellow robots, enabling them to learn from one another.

A photo of 200,000 galaxies, a mere 0.004% of our sky.

These images were taken with VISTA, the European Southern Observatory’s Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA), a 4.1 meter telescope in Chile. This huge image is actually composed of 6000 separate images, and is the single deepest infrared picture of the sky ever taken with this field of view. Hubble can get deeper, for example, but sees a much, much smaller part of the sky.

You can find the full, high rez version here. It’s worth a look, a very long one. (17,121 x 10,824 pixels & 250MBs)

Erroneous tweet by Spike Lee has Sanford, Florida couple living in fear -

producermatthew:

From MSNBC.com:

A couple in Sanford, Fla., is afraid for their lives after people posted their home address on Twitter and said it was that of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot dead Trayvon Martin.

The mistake reportedly has forced David and Elaine McClain, a couple in their 70s whose home is about four miles from where Martin was shot, to flee to a hotel.

Among those retweeting the couple’s address was film director Spike Lee, who has nearly 250,000 followers on Twitter.
