Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Events on Thursday 10 October 2013

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Events on Tuesday 1 October 2013

Failed astronaut shoots for the stars, builds his own spacesuit

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Events on Thursday 26 September 2013

A 45-year-old anthropologist who couldn’t cut it for NASA’s aviation program decided to raid his neighborhood hardware store and the Internet for parts to build his very own space suit from scratch. It looks pretty cool. We guess the next step is to actually test it in space, or at the very least, Hawaii. This […]

Elise Boyd Contributor

By Elise Boyd in New Events on Friday 13 September 2013

What’s that? You’ve never even heard of Newcastle, Australia? Well, get to the google machine! Listed in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities of 2011, Newcastle not only happens to be the location of one of our Lost At E Minor offices, but is also a vibrant, upcoming hub for all the things we love here at Lost At E Minor: technology, arts, design and culture. We’re pretty biased though, so just ask Lonely Planet: they reckon it’s one of the most underrated cities, with its down-to-earth larrikin charm, amazing beaches, relaxed lifestyle and proximity to the Hunter Valley vineyards.
