Hehehe. I like this commercial.

In Focus has posted a bunch of large photos of nuclear bomb tests conducting during this century.
While we often think of nuclear bombs as mushroom clouds rising high above the earth, it’s rare that we see images of the results on the Earth’s crust. In the photo above, a 100 kiloton bomb was detonated beneath 635 feet of desert sand and this 320-foot deep by 1280-foot in diameter hole was dug into the ground. Crazy right?

Say what?! In an odd marketing ploy by Andrew Kessler for his book entitled Martian Summer: Robot Arms, Cowboy Spacemen, and My 90 Days with the Phoenix Mars Mission, the author has set up a book shop in NYC’s West Village (on Hudson Street) that only sells that book, and nothing else.
If you want to visit this bookstore oddity and browse around, you can do so by visitng Ed’s Martian Book at 547 Hudson Street.
