Avenger’s Damage to Manhattan

 

Without giving too much away to those who’ve not yet seen the brilliant Avenger’s movie, there is quite a bit of damage done to Manhattan in the final action sequences. Disaster experts estimate the cost of the damage to be in the region of $160 billion. Nice job Avengers! Must try harder, tut tut!

Enterprise Retires To New York

As the NASA space shuttle program comes to a close, a series of commemorative flybys by the remaining craft are producing some amazing sights as they glide over famous landmarks in the US. Here the Space Shuttle Enterprise flies over New York as it comes to land at JFK International Airport before being retired to the USS Intrepid Air and Space Museum. As one of the women being interviewed says in the news report, it is also poignant that the shuttle was able to fly over Manhattan with cheering crowds as New Yorker’s have taken back their skies. I’m sure Enterprise will be a very popular tourist attraction when it is installed on the Intrepid. It is a sad day though to be sure as it is an end of era for the US and it’s manned space exploration. Hopefully something new is being designed, a space craft that will continue the exciting work of its predecessor.

New York Timelapse

This is a remarkable work of art. The hours and effort that must have went in to create this New York City time-lapse leave me in awe. It captures the essence of such a frenetic city so well and the choice of song works brilliantly too. Brings back lots of great memories from holidays past. What an amazing city!
