45 years ago today, Christmas eve 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 was orbiting the moon when they spotted the Earth rising above the moon’s horizon. The crew scrambled to take the iconic photo everyone knows as ‘Earthrise’. NASA recreated this moment using the original audio and stunning graphics.
According to Creative-Mapping.com –
Ukrainian installation artist Mark Khaisman creates his infamous works by applying layers of translucent packing tape onto clear Plexiglas panels. His subjects are often borrowed from art history, old movies, 20th century propaganda art, and his own photographs.

According to PublicDomainReview.org -
The image in question was taken in 1839 by an amateur chemist and photography enthusiast from Philadelphia named Robert Cornelius. Cornelius had set his camera up at the back of the family store in Philadelphia. He took the image by removing the lens cap and then running into frame where he sat for a minute before covering up the lens again. On the back he wrote “The first light Picture ever taken. 1839.”

Wired reports -
Fabian Oefner is a night owl, but that’s mostly by necessity. The Switzerland-based artist does most of his work after dark, long after the sunshine stops streaming into the big windows of his studio. This is when he’s finally able to capture some truly magical moments. Oefner is best known for his brightly colored paint experiments that make invisible natural forces like gravity, air pressure and centrifugal force visible.

Izismile.com reported -
This poor abandoned pooch was found wandering on farmland in Ontario Canada and could barely walk due to his fur being so tightly matted together. His rescuers took him to a vet where they removed his overgrown fur coat and a bur from his eye. He is still slightly afraid of people but enjoys the company of other dogs and is recovering nicely.
