“Learning To Fly”: Bodies Flip, Dance, And Stack In Gravity-Defying Images By Rob Woodcox

"Learning To Fly": Bodies Flip, Dance, And Stack In Gravity-Defying Images By Rob Woodcox

Fine art and fashion photographer Rob Woodcox works with dancers to create striking images of human bodies pushed past their physical threshold with a bit of creative editing. Impossible feats of the body are achieved in his photography, such as an image of subjects curved in both convex and concave positions while suspended in the air, and another of bodies stacked meticulously in a sort of Tetris-style configuration.

NASA’s Concept of the Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory

NASA's Concept of the Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory

This NASA artist’s concept shows the Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission’s twin spacecraft in orbit around the moon. The GRAIL mission will fly the spacecraft, in the same orbit, over areas of greater and lesser gravity, caused both by visible features such as mountains and craters and by masses hidden beneath the lunar surface, they will move slightly toward and away from each other. An instrument aboard each spacecraft will measure the changes in their relative velocity very precisely, and scientists will translate this information into a high-resolution map of the moon’s gravitational field. The mission is scheduled to launch on September 8, 2011. (REUTERS / NASA / JPL) Continue reading »
