Since most recreational vehicles look alike, it is very hard for the average person to know how well they are made or how livable they are. The easy-to-use, accurate Voyager portable luggage scale from EatSmart is perfect for bags weighing up to 110 lb / 50 kg. The SmartGrip two-handed design allows you to use both hands if you wish so it’s easier to lift and weigh even heavy luggage. And if you’ve ever tried weighing a heavy suitcase on a portable scale you’ll know just how important this great feature is!

Using its near-infrared vision to peer 9 billion years back in time, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered an extraordinary population of tiny, young galaxies that are brimming with star formation. The galaxies are typically a hundred times less massive than the Milky Way galaxy, yet they churn out stars at such a furious pace that their stellar content would double in just 10 million years. By comparison, the Milky Way would take a thousand times longer to double its population. The observations were part of the Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey (CANDELS), an ambitious three-year survey to analyze the most distant galaxies in the universe. CANDELS is the census of dwarf galaxies at such an early epoch in the universe’s history. This video zooms into the Hubble GOODS South Deep (GSD) field and the Hubble Ultra Deep Survey (UDS) field.

For us, the only exception to this carry-on rule is when travelling for longer assignment. There are just too many things to bring along even if nowadays, almost everything is available and if not in your specific destination, then often easily available in the next country. The airline cannot lose what I do not check in nor can the wretches charge me for it and I’m first to the taxi lines in countries with 10 taxis and only 2 are at the airport!Travel

Densely vegetated Islands with picturesque beaches and surrounded by turquoise blue water lagoons – that’s the picture which comes to mind when I think about Maldives. Paradise – the first thought that came to mind on hearing Maldives, and when I further realized that I would be spending my birthday on the largest island resort in the Maldives, I was literally transcended into an ecstatic state of mind. This is how 2017 started for me, with a month long trip to Sun Island Resort and Spa – Maldives, from mid Jan to mid Feb.
