This is The End. (Of Space Exploration Month)

Posted by

As you may recall, a month ago we (invented and) proclaimed the first ever Space Exploration Month!

Space Exploration Month started on June 20 (the summer solstice) and ends this week which includes the July 20th anniversary of the first lunar landing.

And what a month it was for space exploration! Unless you are living on Mars, you heard about the space flight of Richard Branson on Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo. If you only heard about it and didn't see it, you should take a second to check it out. Not a fan of space stuff? No problem -- let your kids watch because its really quite interesting and remarkable.

As our newly minted Space Ex Month draws to a close we wanted to remind you of our offer of $10 off our new and expanded space collection which includes original National Geographic and LIFE Magazines along with other great items.

Taking it For Granted

Nowadays, there is so much we take for granted. Things once recently considered fantastically futuristic -- video calls come to mind -- are so commonplace we can already suffer from "Zoom fatigue."The past year-and-a-half have also reminded us that we should NOT take things for granted. Things can change, even drastically, and disrupt our lives. It is interesting that just [...]

This Event Happened 109 Years Ago - And You Remember It

Why do some events that took place decades ago remain in our societal conscious and other more recent events do not?
