Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Good evening all morons and moronettes. Welcome to Caturday.

Guess the number of kittens for a prize.*

Item #1: The Glamour of Soviet Russian Space Flight
These are photos from the return of Soyuz TMA-11 from the International Space Station in April of last year. Due to a malfunction it entered the atmosphere at a much steeper angle than normal and landed 475km off target. It was unusual in that it was the first non-solo spaceflight with a majority female crew. Of course the head of the Russian Space Agency blamed this for the problems and pledged to avoid the situation in the future. New policy: chicks don't drive the Soyuz.

After the retirement of the shuttle next year, this will be the only way to get to and from the ISS. I snark, but if offered a chance to go, I'd take it in a nanosecond.

Item #2: Amazing 3-D Floor Art
Artist Kurt Wenner is known for creating chalk floor art that gives the illusion that it's actually 3-D. It only works from one angle but it's pretty amazing.
