I am the captain of my fate,
I am the master of my soul.
A Typographical History of NASA
Data artists and visualization researchers at the Office for Creative Research dug through 11,000 pages of NASA history reports, containing nearly 5 million words, to assemble this typographical timeline of the U.S. space program.
The vertical waves represent the total NASA and percent of national budgets (which is why it begins to shrink toward the right side of the page). The most important words and phrases from each year are listed in lieu of traditional milestones, giving us a unique perspective on the key events that led us up up and away.
Tour the full-size, interactive visualization of NASA’s history here, it’s really something (and it’s also way too big for me to show you on my blog)

Changing the intellectual tenor of our law schools is not going to save the world. But if law students are encouraged to think less in terms of numbers and more in terms of people, and if they are presented with a vocabulary of compassion rather than one of cold calculation, they stand a good chance of helping it along.
