The journal Nature has made their articles, going all the way back to 1869, available for free!

Ben Coffman is a photographer who specializes in landscape astrophotography featuring the Milky Way. These fantastic photographs show the night sky sans light pollution. Interview included!

The Darwin Manuscripts Project at the American Museum of Natural History has released “the world’s first and only large collection of full color, high-resolution images of faithfully transcribed Darwin manuscripts.”

I’ve seen photo projects that show past and present locations overlapped. But this is the first time I’ve seen the real-life locations overlapped by their depictions in video games. By Damien Hypolite. Super cool.
