When it comes to the debate over impractical female superhero costumes, Emma Frost is always in the conversation. X-Men fan Terry Blas decided to take on the problem, but he needs your help.

To that end he created The Emma Frost Project and asked readers to show off their ideas for what a thoroughly modern and fashionably Frost might wear. Feel free to submit your designs to share with other Frost fans.

Alberta photographer Wendy Sloboda has been photographing fossils for 30 years, and she has a gift for dinosaur hunting. Her work has led to the classification of new species, and a discovery she made five years ago was given the name Wendiceratops Pinhornensis in her honor. Royal Ontario Museum paleontologist David Evans told CBCnews:

The paleontologists dig at sites discovered the previous year — often by Sloboda, Evans says.

“We often joke that we’re Wendy’s cleanup crew because Wendy runs around the badlands and finds all this cool stuff and we basically come in afterwards and do the digging,” he added. “She just has a sixth sense for finding good specimens.”

Sloboda drives out to other areas and hikes with a small group, usually students, to go “prospecting” — looking for rocks sticking out of the dirt that she recognizes as fossils from their unusual colour, texture or shininess.

“It’s really hard to explain,” she said.

An image of the hippo-sized horned dinosaur which is related to the triceratops and lived 75 to 79 million years ago, is now tattooed on Wendy’s arm.

armstrong suit

It’s been 46 years since Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon and there are big plans for his spacesuit. The Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum wants to put it on display for the 50th anniversary in July 2019, but they need help raising the money to do it safely.

Tho that end, they launched a Kickstarter to raise the needed funds. #RebootTheSuit is hoping to raise $500,000 and is offering great rewards for space nerds. There are stickers and posters, behind-the-scenes videos, and a Reboot the Suit t-shirt.

See the project video after the break.
