Due to some miscommunication, I am now the proud owner of three huge boxes of baby arugula. My typical tactic of making simple onion-and-Parmesan salads is feeble before this gross excess. I am looking for recipes that require great heaping handfuls of arugula. I'm a decent cook and I'll eat anything, but I don't particularly enjoy non-smoked, non-fried seafood. Labor intensive recipes are fine.

I plan on building a rocket stove similar to this one.
I want a smokeless (or nearly smokeless) fire for toasting s'mores, etc. Does anyone have some tips, such as where to find cans that aren't coated in bpa or old paint?

Anyone know why the Ares rocket is that shape?

Inspired by this question
, I'd like to determine what playground I loved to be taken to in the late 1960s, early 1970s on Long Island, probably in Nassau County. The most salient feature was a climb-on rocket ship. Was it at Jones Beach?

So I'm watching the new Nasa documentary on Discovery and it prompted me to renew my search for rocket art. The issue is that if there is such a thing its not easy to find. I'm looking for prints of old rockets/spacecraft in the vein of this
. Doesn't necessarily have to be photographic, but at least photo realistic. Anyone have any ideas of where to look?
Bonus points if anyone knows of small scale desktop models of the old school rockets (Atlas, Jupiter, Titan, Redstone).

I would like to find a link for a short video clip of a video game that meets certain criteria. It will go into a presentation to elementary school teachers, as a quick backdrop to a point about interactive games that will be used in school, and that will be fun while challenging kids to think and learn. (It won't itself BE that game; it just has to plausibly look the part.) It needs to have some connection to an outer space theme. [more inside]

Is it the impact that causes the missile/torpedo/what-have-you to explode? Or some sort of 'on-board' electronic targeting system that tells it to detonate?

Price-my-non-radioactive-rocket-Filter: I have a family heirloom whose value I would love to learn (not that I am planning on parting with it, but out of curiosity). It is a piece of the Vanguard1A, the first attempt by the US to reach space, which exploded rather famously in December, 1956.
