The lunar horizon is approximately 780 km from the spacecraft. On Earth, 384, 000 km away, the sunset terminator bisects Africa. The unnamed surface features in the foreground of the picture are near the eastern limb of the Moon as viewed from Earth

Illustration of Leonardo da Vincis parachute Featured July Print

Illustration of Leonardo da Vincis parachute

First parachute design. Parachute designed and drawn by the Italian inventer Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). Leonardo was the first person to suggest using a parachute to slow a person's rate of fall. At lower left is some of the mirror hand- writing that he used to keep his ideas secret. Leonardo devoted many years of research into studying flight and designing potential aircraft. Like many of his projects, the parachute design was never published and the parachute was never actually constructed. After Leonardo's death his notes lay unnoticed in a library until 1796, just a few years after parachutes had been re-invented by Frenchman Jean-Pierre Blanchard
