NASA Celebrates Hubble Space Telescope Anniversary with DIY Collectibles

NASA Celebrates Hubble Space Telescope Anniversary with DIY Collectibles | digital tech | Scoop.it
NASA is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope with a set of do-it-yourself collectibles. Marking the orbital observatory's launch 25 years ago this Friday (April 24), NASA is offering a medallion, a model of the space telescope and a Hubble "space ball." But unlike the agency's past commemoratives for space milestones, these free mementos are print-on-demand. Hubble, the world's most popular space telescope, was launched on April 24, 1990 on space shuttle Discovery. In its quarter-century in orbit, the Hubble has transformed our understanding of our solar system and beyond and helped us find our place among the stars.

Apple employee quits his job, spills dirt on ‘what really goes on’ there | digital tech | Scoop.it
Working at Apple is a dream job for some but a nightmare for others, particularly those who value having free time. Via Business Insider, an ex-Apple employee named Ben Farrell recently quit his job at the company and penned a not-too-happy blog post about what it’s really like to work for the company.
