Speed.Kitty - “New Psychic Revolution”

Mid-nineties Columbia, SC awesomeness.  New Psychic Revolution was my college jam (ten years after Speed.Kitty broke up).  Out of nowhere it got stuck in my head this morning.  Thank god for Indie March.

I roundly consider “New Psychic Revolution” not only my favorite Columbia-produced song of all time, but one of my all-time top-five desert-island jams. As lush and affecting now as when it was released, way back in 1997.

Never-Before-Seen Photos From the Early Days of Space Exploration

The Gemini astronauts also took some of the most memorable photos in NASA history. You’d think we would have seen them all by now. But with Nasa’s help and funding, a team of researchers at Arizona State University led by lunar scientist Mark Robinson has retrieved from the archives dozens of outtakes that never made it into wide circulation.

Photos: NASA

Ed note: Check out our friends at Air & Space for more stunning photos from the Gemini mission.

These are an absolute treasure. I don’t know if it was the tight quarters, lack of illumination, or the particular light characteristics of the Hasselblad 70mm cameras used on these missions, but they are equal parts spooky and beautiful. They capture the sort of terrifying, dramatic excitement that I imagine being one of the first men in orbit felt like. 

A little extra tidbit about spacewalk photos from this era: Those gas canisters you see in their hands as they exit the spacecraft? Those are called “zip guns”, and they were used to maneuver while outside the capsule. Sort of like when Wall-e rides the fire extinguisher through space.
