Comets, Cool Weapons and A Cutting-Edge Model

Say hello to Natasha Tagai, an amazing and yes, cutting-edge beauty right out of the gate. Can you handle all these models yet? Hope so. Because since Natasha is only number 15 in our line-up you're going to have to handle the showcasing of 5 more stunning someday-supermodels to appear this April in issue #1 of THE MODEL DIGEST which will feature 20 beautiful models not only in this but in all of its issues. Keeping this in mind it is probably best to spend all your time on this blog since you will always get the inside sneak preview right here!

Now while our lovely and talented Natasha is blazing her rise across the sky, it calls to mind the comet Hale-Bopp which had its closest approach to earth in 1997 at 1.315 AU's (astronomical units). 1 AU equals 149,597,870.691 kilometers. Whew! That was close . . .

And in keeping with our cutting-edge theme, in today's ever-changing technology (and it is changing much faster than any of us could truly realize), let's look at the laser, that object of literary fantasy and old movies as well as the more grounded medical applications. The first laser patent was granted in 1960 (hardly considered a futuristic time--we still had not landed on our humble moon yet) to Arthur Schawlow and Charles Townes. So why isn't it called a Schawlow Scan or a Townes Tool? Who knows? But the name stands for what it is: Light Amplification by Simulated Emission of Radiation or pretty close to that if memory serves. We're not a science blog, after all. All we ever guarantee is that our models are so beautiful they call cool things to mind and words like "astronomical" can't help but describe them perfectly.
