Ryan goes first because he’s had this one planned for weeks:
Show favorite artist Brynn Metheney has a Morae River show opening near LA this weekend. Go, enjoy, and play Episode 12 of Science… sort of loudly on your boombox in the gallery.
Soccer has history in America?

So this may come as a shock to those of you who feel comfortable flying on commercial aircraft, but up until now the FAA did not require commercial aircraft to keep track of corrosion or cracks in the structure.
As aircraft get old, the metal parts begin to “fatigue”, and form micro-cracks that can grow into larger cracks, or increase susceptibility to corrosion. The study of “Fatigue and Damage Tolerance” addresses these effects, and attempts to predict crack and corrosion growth to stochastically estimate the “safe life” limits of the aircraft.
