PDF to Kindle....
Nice catch from Chris Bullett for converting PDFs to the Kindle native format.... the Kindle does an OK-ish job of rendering PDFs but there are problems. Anyway, over to Chris:
Thought this might be of interest – PDF to ePUB - it’s free (for a limited time), downloadable software which converts PDFs to Kindle format, making them considerably easier to navigate on a Kindle device – tried and thoroughly recommended (though doesn’t work so well on PDFs with multiple columns per page).

First orbiting photo - from John Glen
Great post over at the NASA Earth Observatory on the photo by John Glen, the first human to orbit the Earth. There is something mesmerising about this photo... yes we had had images returned by TIROS and the military CORONA programme, but this was taken by the first orbiting human and there is something personal about it.
