Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue (Full Album) (Full HD 1080p) Jazz HQ Sound

Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue Full Album Concert Full HD Kind of Blue is a studio album by American jazz musician Miles Davis, released August 17, 1959, on Columbia Records...Kind of Blue has been cited by writers and music critics as the greatest jazz album of all time. 

The album's influence on music, including jazz, rock, and classical music, has led music writers to acknowledge it as one of the most influential albums ever made. In 2002, it was one of fifty recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

Domitilla Enders's insight:

 

Must-have resource for any music course featuring jazz. There is no video footage. It's really an audio resource.

Space Station Cargo Craft Makes Way for Another

Published on Jun 11, 2013 by NASA

The Russian ISS Progress 51 cargo ship undocked from the International Space Station's Zvezda Service Module June 11, clearing the way for the scheduled arrival of the European Space Agency's "Albert Einstein" Automated Transfer Vehicle to link up to the same port June 15. The Progress 51 craft was launched on April 24 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and docked to Zvezda on April 26. The Progress will remain in orbit for several days well away from the station to enable Russian ground controllers to conduct engineering tests with the vehicle before it is deorbited to burn up in the Earth's atmosphere.

Meet A Few Of The 100,000 People Who Have Applied To Go To Mars

Meet A Few Of The 100,000 People Who Have Applied To Go To Mars | High-Fidelity Open Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Those interested have until Aug. 31 to submit their video applications for a chance to live and die on Mars. Let's meet some of the applicants.
Domitilla Enders's insight:

Don't miss the deadline....and BTW:


Space travel does not use the 'point and shoot' idea. An actual trip to Mars must use a 'minimum cost' trajectory that uses the speed of Earth and Mars to best advantage.

You can only begin your trip when Earth and Mars are properly lined up. There is only one launch window every 26 months. After spending 9 months getting to Mars, you must wait 3 to 4 months for the next launch window for the return trip. Total time for a round trip is 21 to 22 months.

But you won't be able to return. The present space shuttle cannot carry enough food, water, oxygen and fuel to keep a crew alive that long. So it's a one-way trip.
