With Space Shuttle Endeavour safely back on the ground since Tuesday and after a near spotless mission to the International Space Station (except for a few tiles...), here's a look at some incredible high-definitions pictures shot during the past two weeks. The rest of the high-def gallery can be found here.

French news magazine L'Express is reporting that another French magazine (with close ties to the newly elected president) decided to give Sarko the full top-model treatment with some photoshoping... (left: the original photo of the president during his recent vacations in the US published by Reuters, right: the new improved Sarko)
I just started reading The World Without Us by Alan Weisman. It's a fascinating look at how fast all of our infrastructures (buildings, roads, tunnels, ...) would collapse in a matter of years (not decades) if we were all to disappear from the surface of the planet tomorrow. Weisman was last night with Jon Stewart, very uplifting interview... for planet Earth. And oh, invest in bronze, it's apparently one of the most time-resisting alloys we have.

Universal is releasing today a brand new 2-disc Collector Edition of Serenity, the 2005 Joss Whedon movie (sequel to the excellent but short-lived tv show Firefly, following the adventures of Capt. Malcom Reynolds and his crew) with tons of new extra features (extended scenes, cast/director commentaries, documentaries, ...). If you never saw the movie, get it! It's probably the best sci-fi movie of these past 20 years (can we say better than Episodes 1-2-3 of Star Wars? hmm, yeah we can). If you already have it on dvd, get it! (and give your old copy to friends or to a total stranger on the subway to help spread the word). The more copies of this dvd being sold (it's already #1 on Amazon) the more chances we'll get to see a Serenity 2 :) Here's a link to 25 Reasons Why You Should Buy the Serenity Collector Edition DVD.
