  • Postcards from Mars

    HiRISE is a high-resolution camera on board a NASA spacecraft sent to Mars back in 2005. Its photographs of the planet’s surface show an incredible amount of detail with an accuracy of up to one meter.

    The project's multilingual homepage has spawned a number of Tumblr blogs, all of which are translated and run by volunteers in Chinese, Hebrew, Latin (!), Polish, Russian, Turkish, and Ukrainian.

    Far out!

  • Happy Birthday, Tour de France!
The 2013 TDF is the 100th edition of what is probably the world&#8217;s most famous bike race. As its own special birthday present, this year&#8217;s tour is running through the French island of Corsica for the first time ever. More than 19 teams are cycling a total distance of 3,403 kilometers (2,115 miles) through 21 July. Check out these TDF blogs:
Cycling is Art. The title says it all: this Tumblr blog combines a love for cycling and retro art.
Yay Cycling is run by Natalie and Sarah, huge fans of the sport. The two curate photos and news about the TDF, and are even holding their own Fantasy Bicycle TDF. &#8220;Bunnies on Bikes&#8221; are currently in the lead!
Les oreilles dans le guidon is a rather musical blog celebrating the 100th anniversary of the TDF with 100 songs and anecdotes. Très chic.
G. Jackson loves yellow and so does every true TDF fan. A nice photo blog about the color of the moment.
Suffer Faces is bike culture blogged by the new magazine Bike Hugger.
