Was Amelia Earhart Stranded? Researchers hope to uncover DNA evidence on a remote island in the Pacific. and I found out they're putting out a movie about her in October. She was a real heroine of mine when I was a little girl.

Steampunk Computer Case! I want!

U.S. Army Astronaut Colonel Timothy Kopra First to Tweet from Outer space.

And not a link, but amused me. 'Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?' by Paula Cole was playing and I found myself singing, 'I'll raise the chickens' - the line is 'I'll raise the children'.

Very cool links, Ith! I sent the one about the horses to my dad. He may have seen some when he was over in Europe in the '50s.

I'd like to point out that Christopher Eccleston is in the Amelia movie.

I see he's corrected his article about Col. Kopra tweeting from space. I've been following Astro Dave for a while now, and he tweeted during his last shuttle mission.

The Earhart information is really interesting! I've always been fascinated by that mystery.

The Akhal-Teke apparently have a very unusual metallic sheen to their coats. I've seen a picture of one that shone like gold. It's really neat!

Interesting links. I, too, have been fascinated by the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.
