    Watch 'Jaws' while orchestra performs blockbuster's score
    On Saturday, June 2, you can catch a screening of Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" at the Mann Center. The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia will perform the movie's suspenseful score live, as the action unfolds on three giant screens. Just as the movie left a mark on the summer blockbuster, so, too, did its music.

While shooting a SpaceX launch earlier this week in California, NASA photographer Bill Ingalls had a bit of a mishap with one of his remotely operated cameras (luckily the memory card remained in tact). http://bit.ly/2J2Kcex

    A NASA photographer caught the perfect SpaceX launch shot. Then his camera melted
    For photographers, the Robert Capa adage "If your photographs aren't good enough, you're not close enough," is a guiding principle. For NASA photographer Bill Ingalls, it can be updated to, "Even if your photos are good enough, and you're photographing at a safe distance, your camera might still be toast."

    The slim volume bound in animal skin represented the best the field of medicine had to offer 500 years ago: a compilation of remedies made from such ingredients as rabbit bones, ox tongue, and chicory. Yet at some point before the manuscript reached its current resting place, a library shelf at the University of Pennsylvania, an unknown liquid was spilled on its carefully lettered pages.
