“We now know that Cassini also recorded a soundtrack of sorts—data that has now yielded a series of thrillingly eerie whooshes and warbles that represent the relationship between the ringed planet and Enceladus, one of its moons.” http://bit.ly/2NQbuEy

    Listen to the Mournful Wails of Planets and Moons
    Before NASA's spacecraft burned up in Saturn's atmosphere in September 2017, it captured a massive trove of data, including striking close-ups of the planet and images of its cosmic neighborhood. ( And ours.)

Happy Bastille Day from The Franklin Institut...

Happy Bastille Day from The Franklin Institute. Benjamin Franklin served as the United States Ambassador to France from 1776 until 1785. As ambassador to France, he was in charge of securing aid for the American Revolution from abroad and forming an alliance with the French, both of which were instrumental in the success of American independence efforts. Due to his wit, charm and reputation as a renowned intellectual, Franklin was beloved there and charmed the French with his uniquely American style, especially his iconic fur hat. http://bit.ly/1SkrJX6 IMAGE: The reception of Benjamin Franklin in France | 1888 | The Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

"Could [Jean Renoir] not see that he had done so much more than imitate, that he had transformed his medium in ways even more profound than the elder Renoir did his?" @nytimes Jean Renoir acknowledged that he could not escape his father's influence. The Times, which calls the exhibition "terrific and heartfelt," reveals there's more to it than mere imitation. 🔎 As you explore the show, think about a father figure in your life. How has he influenced your perspective and practice? #DadandMe ✒ Book tickets: http://bit.ly/Renoir-Father-Son 🔗 Read the review: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/30/arts/design/renoir-father-and-son-painting-and-cinema-review-barnes-foundation.html
