A Thousand Suns explores Food, Ecology and Religion in the 21st Century.

A Thousand Suns tells the story of the Gamo Highlands of the African Rift Valley and the unique worldview held by the people of the region. This isolated area has remained remarkably intact both biologically and culturally. It is one of the most densely populated rural regions of Africa yet its people have been farming sustainably for 10,000 years.

X Planes is a photoblog of experimental, hypothetical, and outright imaginary aircraft throughout modern aviation history. The picture above is of a particular F-106:

On Feb 2nd, 1970, a Convair F-106 Delta Dagger was found in a snow-covered Montana field, pilot-less, landing gear up, and with the engine still running - the melting snow causing the aircraft to slowly move forward…

The pilot - Captain Gary Faust - had earlier ejected from the aircraft at 15,000 feet when it entered a flat spin. Amazingly, the un-piloted aircraft then recovered, to make a gentle “belly-up” landing…
