    That certainly IS amazing. But actually the longest exposure ever taken is happening right now. A photographer and artist set a camera to take a 1000 year exposure of Tempe Arizona.

    At least the CDC considers teachers frontline essential workers. I know some teachers are still very leery of going back to school but I do think it's important every teacher that is willing get vaccinated get one easily as a high priority.

    The CDC also just lowered the recommended space between kids in school from 6 feet to 3 feet, allowing schools more occupancy at the same time, making teachers' need to get a shot even higher in my opinion.

    Yep, I'm so happy this is a thing now. My mother in-law is a teacher and just got her first and second shot because of this. Very grateful.

    Yeah, you would think that if they were different, it would cause confusion as well as be problematic logistically. Can you imagine, if they were only able to get one of the shots in, but didn't have the other? Yikes!

    A friend of mine recently told me that he tested positive for the antibodies, and he donates plasma to help out. I'm wondering, can he still spread the sickness to other people? Does this make him more likely to be contagious? Will still need to get the shot eventually? I'm a bit confused on the subject because I've heard some many conflicting reports.

    I know they work for many out there. I tried them for a while as I use screens anywhere from 6-12 hours daily and suffer from pretty bad eye fatigue because of it. Maybe I didn't give the glasses their fair shake but I found that eliminating white screens helped tremendously. I use a Chrome extension that 'deluminates', basically turning every page into dark mode. Also use dark mode on my iphone and am really conscious of screen glare with my computer monitors and TV; everything I have is IPS and anti glare.

    Night and day difference for my eyes.

    I do this as well. It's made such a difference in eye fatigue. I wished I would have started using deluminate when I was a data analyst. Probably would have saved me from eventually going to glasses years ago.

    This is great news. Although it could come a little sooner than later. I definitely see some sparks flying over this though once implemented.

    Now this is both awesome and truly impressive. Looking forward to see more in the future.

    You know I never thought of this at all. I guess because like it was previously mentioned, that the flu took a backseat as far as news coverage was concerned. This should definitely be at the top of the list of positive outcomes for the past year.

    That's a really cool photo and an unfortunate aspect of space travel, the way we do it now. Would be best if we could invent propulsion systems that don't require shedding off waste into space just to get to a destination. But seems we are still a long way away from that.

    Agreed, and it's definitely unfortunate. I guess one would argue that you can't bake a cake without breaking some eggs - a means to an end and whatnot. Would be awesome if we figured out a way to create materials that would eventually degrade and disappear once it's done its job.

    It's kinda gross when you look at the pictures, but you can't deny the miracle of science for sure. Biologists have been saying for decades that a fetus needs a living uterus to develop, well that might be debunked now. This is what was described about how well developed the embryos came to be in the artificial uterus.

    The mouse embryos looked perfectly normal. All their organs were developing as expected, along with their limbs and circulatory and nervous systems. Their tiny hearts were beating at a normal 170 beats per minute.

    This is the first time such a feat has been accomplished. The study was to help scientists understand how mammals develop and how gene mutations, nutrients and environmental conditions affect the fetus. This will definitely bring up the debate one day as to whether or not other animals and humans should be cultured outside of a living womb. There's no doubt that it will be highly controversial, much like with cloning.
