Blackest Night power ring set …. I may have to buy this for c2e2.

So I just finished reading the entire Blackest Night and will be starting the Brightest Day next. After finishing that series and learning a tone more about the DC Universe (I typically lean Marvel in my readings) I did some handy dandy looking online to see what was available. Other than the Noble Collection and other expensive replicas that were never meant to be worn there were a literal crap-ton of knock off power rings. Then I came across this whole set (albeit plastic) of the whole spectrum of lantern corps. Check them out!

NASA Five Rocket ATREX Mission Postponed to March 19


NASA – Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment (ATREX). WALLOPS ISLAND, VA – NASA has rescheduled the launch of five suborbital sounding rockets from the Wallops Facility in Virginia as part of a study of the upper level jet stream to no earlier than Monday night, March 19.

The high probability of unacceptable weather is preventing a launch attempt on March 18.
The Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment (ATREX) will gather information needed to better understand the process responsible for the high-altitude jet stream located 60 to 65 miles above the surface of the Earth.

As part the mission, the five rockets will release a chemical tracer that will form milky, white clouds that allow scientists and the public to “see” the winds in space. These clouds may be visible for up to 20 minutes by residents from South Carolina to southern New Hampshire and Vermont.

A decision on a March 19 launch attempt will be made Sunday evening, March 18.

836 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fans Invade Nickelodeon Universe

836 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fans Invade Nickelodeon Universe to Break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Largest Gathering of Ninja Turtles

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., March 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Fans dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles united in Mall of America to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS largest gathering of ninja turtles and celebrate the grand opening of the newest thrill ride at Nickelodeon Universe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock, the first ever ride of its kind in the United States. Fans from across the nation traveled to Mall of America to shatter the previous record of 786 with 836 fans dressed as ninja turtles. The Mall welcomed guests with commemorative Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirts, face masks and free passes to check out the ride.

“The passion of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans blew this record out of the water with 836 fans dressed as ninja turtles,” said Michael Empric, adjudicator with Guinness World Records.

“We’re astounded by the number of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans that showed up today to celebrate the grand opening of the new ride,” says Jennifer Lauerman, Nickelodeon Universe marketing director. “You can feel the adrenaline and excitement in the air from the guests and fans, it’s a great feeling.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Shock takes riders 70 feet in the air in a matter of seconds reaching up to 25 mph. With 12 single bucket seats at the end of a cantilevered arm that rotates around a central tower, this ride is a thrill-seekers dream. Each guest controls their seat which can rotate wildly like a plane propeller or a gentle teeter-totter like a see-saw making no two ride experiences the same. The attraction is based on the highly-anticipated all-new CG-animated television series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which will premiere on Nickelodeon later this year.

A second new attraction to Nickelodeon Universe, Dutchman’s Deck Anchor drop stainless steel spiral tube slide system also opened this month. These two intertwining tubes offer quite the thrill for guests from 56 and 35 ft. in the air. One leaves from the third level while the other one leaves from the top of the Flying Dutchman Ghostly Gangplank Adventure Ropes Course. The attraction is based on the Flying Dutchman character from Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants—the number one animated series with kids for the last 12 consecutive years.  Admission to the slides will be included in Ropes Course admission or can be purchased for $2 per person with a wristband purchase or $3 per person without a wristband purchase.
