You know what, there’s no place for egos in situations like that. You’re not you anymore, you’re not famous, you’re not rich, nobody gives a shit that you’re there. You sit there in your own filth, and sometimes you wonder what’s happened for your life to come to this, but at the end of the day, you stand up, and get through another day. And I can’t give you any specifics or the military will have my guts for garters, but I can tell you that when it’s not just you – when there’s someone else there who is relying on you or they won’t make it through the day – well it sure as hell is a humbling experience. — Tony Stark on his imprisonment in Afghanistan, from Stark Naked - Tony Stark for GQ Magazine (May 2010)

NASA gave Dan Winters premiere access to its space program because he has photography down to a science.

Winters meticulously set up his cameras within 700 feet of the final launches of space shuttles Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour, which is no small feat given the massive vibrations caused by the spaceward bound blasts. He also got access to iconic space memorabilia such as Neil Armstrong’s lunar suit, pictured above.

See more images from his series “Last Launch” on KPCC’s AudioVision, and, if you’re in L.A., you can see his exhibit at the Fahey/Klein Gallery from July 11th - August 31st.

NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has discovered the first validated Earth-size planet orbiting in the habitable zone of a distant star, an area where liquid water might exist on its surface.

The planet, Kepler-186f, is ten percent larger in size than Earth and orbits its parent star, Kepler-186, every 130 days. The star, located about 500 light-years from Earth, is classified as an M1 dwarf and is half the size and mass of our sun.
