Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer (Father of the atomic bomb)
Truly the face of a haunted man.
Possibly the most poignant sound byte ever.
He is one of the most interesting figures in modern history. You’d think the guy that headed the operation to create the single most destructive weapon would be pure evil, but Oppenheimer was no monster.
This Day in History: Pancho Villa Attacks Columbus, New Mexico
In the early morning of March 9, 1916, General Francisco “Pancho” Villa and between 500-1,000 of his cavalry troops invaded the United States, attacking a military camp in the small town of Columbus, New Mexico.
In retaliation, on March 14, 1916, the United States Army launched The Pancho Villa Expedition with the mission to kill or capture General Villa.
US troops remained on Mexican soil until February 7, 1917. Villa was never killed nor captured.
The site in Columbus, New Mexico, where General Villa and his troops invaded the United States, is now Pancho Villa State Park.

Ice Music is exactly what the name suggests-music made with ice.
About the ICEstruments:
The Ice Music project in Luleå is initiated by the founder Tim Linhart, working as an ice artist since 30 years, who builds all the ICEstruments himself at home in his garden. Building the ICEstruments is a delicate craftsmanship that requires great patience and also the right cold temperature, so that the ice will have the right elasticity and be possible to sculpt without breaking.
The ICEstruments are very fragile and need to be handled carefully by the musicians tuning and playing on them. For example the ICEviolin usually hung in ropes from the ceiling for a safety reason and it’s thickness, down to only 3 mm in some parts, needs a special plastic protection shield to prevent the musicians warm breath from making a hole in the body of the ICEstrument.
