John Peel’s Record Collection is here and it is so cool. You can’t stream everything unless it’s already on Spotify, but the A-section of his vinyl archive has been scanned and cataloged (B-Z are coming), there are links to his Peel Sessions and podcasts, and there are some never-before-seen home videos to watch. I’m not getting any work done today.

How many engineers does it take?
An ocean of engineers are present in this July 16, 1969, photograph of the mission control center in Houston, Texas, which was preparing for the launch of the Apollo 11 space mission. Four days later, U.S. astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon.
