NASA, one of the agencies on the forefront of space travel, is daring to dream. Last year, the jet propulsion Laboratory (JPL) designed a set of posters known as The Exoplanet Travel Bureau Poster Series, with taglines such as “Relax on Kepler-16b: The land of two suns—where your shadow always has company.”

Now, they have expanded the series to 14 posters and made them freely available to anyone. All you need to do is visit their website to download the posters to your computer.

John McEuen Made in Brooklyn Review brought to you by Country’s Greatest Music Artists. By any stretch of the imagination, a 16 song CD on Chesky Records is a rather ambitious undertaking. In a time when artists are putting out less material on a disc you might think this is a daunting listening assignment but you’d be wrong. Let’s have a listen.

Vic Jordan, Butch Robins, Bill Keith

via Butch Robins who said:
RIP to another old friend, Vic Jordan ~
This photo shows me in-between Vic Jordan and Bill Keith doing a banjo workshop at Carlton Haney's festival in Berryville, VA in 1968. Around 1972, Vic came into The Old-Time Pickin' Parlor in Nashville, TN, and recruited me to play the bass on his album "Pickaway". That was the beginning of my short-lived career as a bass player. Thanks for the memories, Vic.

Tony Rice All Star Jam plays "Nine Pound Hammer"

via Tom Isenhour who said:
This is one of those videos you had to have been there to believe it happened. I was there at MerleFest (1993 I think) and thought as soon as they came out where's the banjo? (I was on the side backstage helping out with the sound). And then they started into it, a bluegrass song without the banjo. After the 2nd break I honestly didn't miss the banjo. I guess that's why I don't get tired of seeing this one. Bela Fleck did come out after a few songs. Tony Rice on top of it both in vocal and guitar breaks. Having Mark O'Conner there that year was extra special. It was a very good year at MerleFest. This video proves that if you got a really tight band behind you, the sky is the limit on what you can do.

RIP Vic Jordan

Vic was a superb banjo picker and a solid showman appearing with top acts from the 60's on. His Christmas Banjo album is one of my favorite holiday albums.

Here's a few bands he was with:
Blue Grass Boy 1967-68
Lester Flatt & Nashville Grass
Jimmy Martin & The Sunny Mountain Boys
Jim & Jesse
Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper

Mike Auldridge & Old Dog

The Old Dog #bluegrass band probably got a chance to release a Flying Fish record thanks to the presence in the band of dobro wizard Mike Auldridge, whose own recordings were some of the most popular in the progressive bluegrass genre of the time. When the group itself failed to make much of a splash, the recording was later reissued with the dobro picker's name added in front.

Tex Williams And His Western Caravan

Sollie Paul "Tex" Williams (August 23, 1917 – October 11, 1985) was an American Western swing musician from Ramsey, Illinois. He is best known for his talking blues style; his biggest hit was the novelty song, "Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette)", which held the number one position on the Billboard charts for sixteen weeks in 1947. "Smoke" was the No. 5 song on Billboard's Top 100 list for 1947, and was No. 1 on the country chart that year.[1] It can be heard during the opening credits of the 2006 movie Thank You for Smoking.

NASA Establishes Contact With STEREO Mission
On Aug. 21, 2016, contact was reestablished with one of NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatories, known as the STEREO-B spacecraft, after communications were lost on Oct. 1, 2014. Over 22 months, the STEREO team has worked to attempt contact with the spacecraft. Most recently, they have attempted a monthly recovery operation using NASA's Deep Space Network, or DSN, which tracks and communicates with missions throughout space.

Dale Sledd has passed

via Bobby Osborne who said:
Today is a sad day. I just received word a while ago that Dale Sledd, who played guitar and sang the third part for many years with Sonny and myself, has passed away. Dale worked for us between 1966 and 1977. He traveled many miles and recorded many songs with us (including Rocky Top). This photo was provided by Jason Wilburn and is from the set of the Wilburn Brothers' TV show.

THE THREE PICKERS

For one historic evening, American music legends Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson and Ricky Skaggs joined forces as The Three Pickers, to film a concert for Public Television. The music they made before a North Carolina audience is as relaxed as a front porch picking session, informed by the skill and good humor of three master musicians who contributed so much to the creation and evolution of #bluegrass music. With special guest Alison Krauss. Includes bonus documentary.

Crazy
via +Frank Beacham 

On this day in 1961 — 55 years ago — Patsy Cline recorded the classic Willie Nelson song, “Crazy.”

Cline was still on crutches after going through a car windshield in a head-on collision two months earlier and had difficulty reaching the high notes of the song at first due to her broken ribs.

“Crazy” spent 21 weeks on the chart and eventually became one of her signature tunes.

The Master Builder
from The New High Country Boys

via Tom Isenhour (who's playing mandolin in this video) who said:
FOR YOUR BILL MONROE FOR BREAKFAST: The bluegrass gospel songs were important in creating the sound of bluegrass. Monroe would gather the Bluegrass Quartet to do songs during the regular shows. He wrote quite a few gospel numbers and sometimes would grab another unknown song. In late 1962 he found "Master Builder" by Wilson/Martin. Here is the New High Country Boys performing this rather obscure Monroe gospel song.

Uber’s Pittsburgh fleet, which will be supervised by humans in the driver’s seat for the time being, consists of specially modified Volvo XC90 sport-utility vehicles outfitted with dozens of sensors that use cameras, lasers, radar, and GPS receivers. Volvo Cars has so far delivered a handful of vehicles out of a total of 100 due by the end of the year. The two companies signed a pact earlier this year to spend $300 million to develop a fully autonomous car that will be ready for the road by 2021.

Dilling also played in bands such as Stoney Run String Band, the Bass Mountain Boys, and the Lonesome River Band. Rebel has let the group's material go out of print, except for the tracks reissued as part of the Rebel Records: 35 Years of the Best of Bluegrass box set.

Hi all! I work in the Radford University archives, and we collect several banjo related resources. One project we are working on is taking photos of banjo components. We recently had the opportunity to photograph Butch Robins 1930 RB4. Please take a look and enjoy
