Emerson's Study Showing Books, Fireplace, and A Desk, 1888

Daily Thoughts 06/29/2014

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I have started reading A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James which is set in Jamaica during the 1970s.  It is an advanced reading copy.  The book is going to be released on October 2, 2014.  I got the book at the Day of Dialog before Book Expo America.  It is a big book, 688 pages long.  The book is fiction.

Turning Outward

Inflatable Space

Watcch NASA's Rocket Powered Flying Saucer Test
I found this interesting.  A balloon was used to raise an inflatable heat shield which would protect a Mars landing.
