William Safire’s ‘Finest’ Unspoken Speech

From Gawker:

Columnist and presidential speechwriter Bill Safire was one of only three non-disloyal Jews President Nixon could name. Here is the speech he drafted for Nixon to read in case the Apollo 11 Astronauts became stranded on the moon!

It is a wonderful piece of alternate universe American history, in which President Nixon had to explain to a nation that Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong were going to die on the moon.

Fantastic Photos of our Solar System

solarSystemShots1

The robotic Opportunity rover is currently exploring Mars. This image of Cape St. Vincent is part of the wall of Victoria Crater.

solarSystemShots2

The Galileo spacecraft captured this image of Jupiter’s moon Europa. Visible are ice, cracks that run to the horizon and dark patches that most likely contain ice and dirt.

solarSystemShots3

The Cassini spacecraft, which is now orbiting Saturn, looked back toward the eclipsed Sun and saw a view unlike any other. The rings of Saturn light up so much that new rings were discovered.

solarSystemShots4

In this image, the Cassini spacecraft captured a near alignment of four of Saturn’s moons (Titan, Dione, Prometheus and Telesto).

solarSystemShots5

New images from the Cassini spacecraft display the slightly different densities of Saturn’s rings.
