In Philly galleries now: Craft, collage, and an out-of-the-way show worth the trouble

Through Jan. 27 at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, 1216 Arch St., 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 12 to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Information: 215-545-7562 or www.fleisherollman.com.

    In Philly galleries now: Craft, collage, and an out-of-the-way show worth the trouble
    A two-person show where there's a synchronicity between the artists' efforts is always a thrill, like listening to a perfectly matched duet. In that way, Fleisher/Ollman Gallery's current "Collage as Painting," pairing Kate Abercrombie and Trevor Winkfield, is brilliant. There's an unmistakable sense of like-mindedness in the two artists' intensely solitary preoccupation.

On this day in 1783, Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d'Arlandes made the first free ascent in a balloon. They flew from the center of Paris for about five and a half miles. Benjamin Franklin was in Paris for the event. Reporting on what he saw, he wrote, "We observed it lift off in the most majestic manner. When it reached around 250 feet in altitude, the intrepid voyagers lowered their hats to salute the spectators. We could not help feeling a certain mixture of awe and admiration."

    How NASA will defend the Earth against plagues from outer space
    Biological contamination goes both ways, mind you. Just as important as keeping extraterrestrial organisms from reaching the surface (aka "backward contamination") is ensuring that our planetary probes carry as few microbial hitchhikers from Earth as possible ("forward contamination"). To that end, in 1958, the U.S.
