I stumbled upon a gallery of pictures people have been sending in from the aftermath of Edmonton's storm Saturday night here. Craziness. I read that Environment Canada measured the wind at 134km's east of the city from a tower that was snapped in half just after recording. That speed is rated the same as an F1 tornado. Yikes.

40 years have passed since the launch of Apollo 11 proving how difficult and expensive space exploration really is. We haven't really accomplished too much since that exciting day although yesterday we set a record for the most people in space at one time. A total of 13 are currently orbiting our earth. I am still completely fascinated by it though...and I suppose I'll always be intrigued when looking at our night sky.
