Memphis Belle

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This two disc video tells the story of the real Memphis Belle, named for Margaret Polk, and its even more exciting than Hollywood’s fact-inspired version. The First Film Unit of the US Army Air Force made a 45 minute documentary that was first released in 1944 to mark the safe completion of a full tour by the Memphis Belle and her crew. This marks the start of this video and is followed by rare out-takes that include a visit by HM King George VI and HM Queen Elizabeth, a slide show and 90 page downloadable study document. Outstanding & exciting.

This image shows Jupiter’s south pole, as seen by NASA’s Juno spacecraft from an altitude of 32,000 miles (52,000 kilometers). The oval features are cyclones, up to 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) in diameter. Multiple images taken with the JunoCam instrument on three separate orbits were combined to show all areas in daylight, enhanced color, and stereographic projection.

Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas giant, and a mammoth, lumpy magnetic field that may indicate it was generated closer to the planet’s surface than previously thought.
